Malaysia - Kelantan - Kota Bahru (Kopitiam Kita / Kampung Kraftangan / War Museum / Pantai Cahaya Bulan / Four Seasons)

There's quite a number of places of interest in Kelantan. Unfortunately we only managed to visit several places only because we having a limited days to cover the entire peninsular except for Penang and Johor. That's because I've visited those states before. I'm proud to say that I've visited the entire Malaysia except for Sabah. How ironic.

Anyway, when you're in KB, make sure that you'll visit KOPITIAM KITA.
It is a very famous coffee shop that serves a very popular breakfast. It's a toast bread with 'kaya' and half boiled egg.

 Quite a number of big shots people who came to this coffee shop such as Dato Siti Nurhaliza and Dato Paduka Nazri Aziz.

 Very delicious :)

 Then we went for a second round - Sup Gearbox.
Honestly, that's the first time I heard of gear box. It's actually the same as soup tulang.

 The bone is so big O___O
#boner lololololol

Istana Balai Besar

This place was the residence of the past Sultans and now serves as the venue for official functions and royal ceremonies. Entrance is restricted to royalty and officials only.

Handicraft Village/Kampung Kraftangan

This is a good place to get souvenirs. They have a number of stalls selling magnets, shirts, and keychains.
Make sure you visit every shop before purchasing because prices differs from one another. Do get the best deal and try to bargain.

Opening hours: 8.30am to 4.45pm (closed on Friday)

Besides having the gift shops, they have a number of restaurants as well.

When you're in Kelantan, there's a list of must-have-food.
1) Ayam percik
2) Nasi kerabu
3) Nasi dagang
4) Budu
5) Serunding

Muzium Diraja

Nothing much to describe on the museums...
Every museums are the same to me - boring!

Opening hours: 8.30am to 4.45pm (closed on Friday)
Admission fee: RM1 for Malaysian and RM2 for non-Malaysian

Muzium Islam

Another museum.

War Museum

And again.... another museum. Please! No more museum visits next time.
*stares at Mark*

Anyway, this place is an excellent place if you want to know or learn about world war 2 and it's impact on Kelantan.
The opening hours and entrance fee is the same as Muzium Diraja.

Lumrah hidup seorang penarik beca.

 Retardness :D

 With his coconut jelly.

Pantai Cahaya Bulan/Beach of Moonlight

This beach was once known as Pantai Cinta Berahi or Beach of Passionate Love in english.
hahaha. What a powerful name. I can see why they decided to change the name. lol.

 Some cute and weird plant that I found. Any idea what's it called anybody?

 hahaha what the hell lah? What kind of pose is this?
Typical example of cinta berahi couple :)


We went to KB Mall for some light shopping.
And guess what? This is a very small world indeed. I bumped into Chong Pei.


Four Seasons

This is a chinese restaurant that serves halal food. Most of the customers are malays.
I think that this is a good concept and you can attract more customers and earn even more lol.
It's located at Jalan Sri Cemerlang and do visit www.fourseasonrestaurant.com.my for further information.

Beef with Mongolian sauce

Claypot Tauhu

 Butter prawn

 Deep-fried soft-shell crab cooked with salted egg.
This is a must eat! Freaking delicious but quite expensive.

 Siakap fish cooked with lemon & sour style

Dinner was fantabulous. I am drooling while blogging right now.
Make sure you'll visit Four Seasons restaurant if you're in Kota Bahru, Kelantan.

We lived in Royal Guest Hotel which is quite nice and very comfortable.
It cost RM139 a night for two. We tried to enjoy our remaining days and indulged ourselves in a better hotel. That's because we had a very shitty hotel the night before. Oh God! It creeps me out whenever I think about it. #fml

By the way, breakfast is provided in this hotel. Weee~
I miss being pampered and lived in a 5 star hotel.

Bought a sunscreen lotion for our impromptu destination - Pulau perhentian.

Wait for my upcoming post - Pulau Perhentian.
