A bit of a murky start compared to the bright of the last few mornings, mind you I was away not too late and the time is one hour ahead of Thailand.
This is the first bananas I have seen for sale roadside since I got here, then later on today I saw them everywhere
Breakfast time at a roadside cafe, two different kinds of chicken and rice for 60 Baht
Normally theres a dog waiting for the scraps but the cat pesters me here
A day of map reading as the GPS seems to have lost its maps, its an annoyance in new towns but thankfully I can remember Alor Setar and Ipoh from my previous trip
N.04.59464 E101.08589. At least my hotel is still there and open so I check in where I stayed three years ago, its now 250 Baht a night.
The eldest daughter greets me remembering me from three years ago but sadly her mother passed away two years ago aged 46, a lovely kind hearted lady too
N04.59393 E101.08393 the famous Ipoh salted chicken
East meets west tonight, a whole salted chicken from a Chinese business with a large portion of fries from McDonalds, 220 Baht the lot
