Cycle Malaysia Day 24 Dungun to Chukai

Good morning Dungun and a beautiful sun rise at the beach to start off Day 24.
On this day I have Anne & Kim following me in this part of my journey, they took advantage of the long holiday and made their way to Dungun. This flower is the beach morning glory also known as goat's foot.
We were not sure as to where we will be eating before we start our journey and were lucky to find this warong after a short ride from the guest house.
Nasi kerabu was good and the ladies enjoyed very much with this local delicacy.
Feeling blessed with a satisfying breakfast before we start with our ride.
We will stop at whatever places we like whenever we see interesting features, we will take a picture or two and move on.
The sight at the bridge over Sungai Paka as we were about to enter Paka town after 25km on the saddle.
A detour towards to beach after we have passed Paka town with an intention to stop for a drink and we managed to see how lekor is made at Keropok Seri Paka located at Kampung Cacar.
Freshly made keropok lekor sausages ready to be poached and sold.
The boiling water being heated up using wood just like the traditional way.
We tried both the steamed and fried keropok lekor and all of us prefer the fried one.
Keropok Seri Paka can be found at Paka GPS : 4.634258, 103.439561 and next to it is a warong makan where we ordered the fried keropok lekor and drink while the steamed lekor was from Seri Paka.

So much of Dungun district after we have passed Paka town.
Paka Power station seen along the way.
After 52km from Dungun we made it to Kemasek, a good place for picnic with spectacular beaches.
We were here at Kemasek beach and they say that Kemasek has one of the most beautiful beaches in east coast and the water is one of the clearest.
Anne slowly walked towards the water, sat on the rock and started playing with the sea water.
She just could not resist from jumping into the water, Kim and I were just watching her enjoying herself.
Another scenic view of Pantai Kemasik.
The lovely row of boats with its roof.
A break with some "tapao" food and drinks in Kijal.
We found this prominent "T" junction under a big tree for a pit stop with cars and motor bikes passing by watching us by the road.
As we were coming towards the district of Kemaman we have to pay a price to proceed with a series of  dragon backs.
The view at Chukai River with a couple of vessels moored by the side of the river.
Our accommodation in Kemaman and our bicycles were safely caged by the side. Let's go for the stuffed crabs.
Well done ladies and cheer for a successful ride to Kemaman.
What a great meal at Restoran Tong Juan at Jalan Sulaimani, Kampung Dusun Nyior (GPS : 4.231526, 103.428064). 
Day 24 - The ladies cycled 85km on their first day and some photo credit to Anne Cheong.
