The journey to Kota Bharu took us more then 10 hours, using the Gua Musang route. We were blocked by lorries, and slowed down by heavy down pour. Arrived KB at 9.40pm. Got the booth setup at the hall before heading for our dinner. Starved.
Since we're new here, no one actually familiar with KB. Thus searching for good food was a considerable task. We settled at a foodcourt nearby the Stadium. I ordered the nasi goreng kerabu (fried rice with raw shredded vegie) while another colleague ordered the daging masak merah (spicy red sauce stir fried beef).
The display of the nasi kerabu was interesting but the taste was somewhat disappointing. But, what the heck, it cost me only RM4. The stir fried beef was just so-so according to my colleague. The tomyam was.. erm.... disappointing as well.
There was this interesting 'misunderstanding' due to difference in dialect. I ordered my favourite drink the timun limau nipis, they gave me watermelon with lime. I told the kakak I wanted the cucumber drink with lime and she adviced, "lain kali adik mintak timun batang, bukan timun." Lorr.... mane Josh tau tembikai dipanggil timun kat sini.
We cleaned up our plate in no time.
We checked in to Grand Riverview Hotel at approximately 11.20pm. Dropped dead on bed till the next day.
