From Ipoh - Kuala Kangsar - Kuala Sepetang.

We didn't drive straight to Kuala Sepetang. We made a few stops along the way.
Our first stop was in Kuala Kangsar where we dropped by a friend's motorcycle shop to pay a visit.
Checking out some of the bright coloured bikes.
The yellow one above and the white one below are good for shopping purposes.So convenient with the metal basket in front, center and a back carrier.
We chatted for a while, refreshed ourselves, and we were on the road again.
Back on the highway
Going out of the highway in search of durians.
We came upon a roadside stall, stopped to find out the price.
The durian fruits look fresh.
Our friends checking out the durians.
"Watch out for the thorns!"
See, the "makcik" or auntie on the left opening the durian fruits for us.
Come, let's enjoy!
Yummy durian fruit.
Sorry about the colour, due to reflection of the pink coloured shade.
After we had our fill of durians, we continued on our journey.
If you want a boat ride, this is the place!
This is a common fishing village scene.
Taking a rest and a snapshot.
"Mind where you sit, don't fall over into the water!"
Sweet couple!

Linking to Good Fences & Skywatch Friday.

Though I am surrounded by troubles,

you will bring me safely through them.

You will clench your fist against my angry enemies!

Your power will save me.
