|Last August I ventured into a Cycle Malaysia tour around peninsular for 43 days but this time around I planned to join a group of friends touring from Padang Besar to Penang where I hope to catch them somewhere in Gurun.|

From Gurun Train Station I took a taxi to get closer to Pulau Bunting, Yan. I visited the same warong I visited one year ago where I met a fellow tourer by the name of Zari Zari. I chatted with the warong operator and had her nasi goreng with teh O ais limau (that was my lunch). The above 2 photos showing the 2 different visits to this warong.
