6 months after our amazing road trip via Iceland, and once again all of us make time to meet up again for a short visit to Sekinchan. Our original plan was to Cameron Highland to do the mossy forest trekking but due to my poor arrangement, Hybrid helped to make a plan here to Sekinchan, so sorry for that. At first it was only 7 of us, but surprisingly Mr. Gary manage to make up time for this gathering which make it full roster of PPP!
We rented a 3 room home stay apartment via One Residence Sekinchan as our accommodation for the night. The apartment was neat, clean and well decorated, which was comfortable for group of peoples like us. We make a surprise early birthday celebration for Ying Ying and CJ as well before depart out for some sight seeing around the area.

We head over to a unique cafe called N16 bus cafe, which located in the middle of paddy field. Why is it called bus cafe? Yeah you are right, the cafe itself is a real bus which being placed on top of a huge container box. The interior of the bus have been refurnish like a cafe with proper sitting, and surprisingly they even have air-con equip in it! It does bring back lots of memory to all of us on the time when we still took bus everyday to school. Having an afternoon team with gang of friend, and surrounded by green paddy field make you feel very comfort and relax here.

Left 8 of us in the cafe.
We then drive our cars going deeper into the quieter road of the paddy field area, to have a closer encounter with it. By seeing the empty straight road and 8 of us together, we suddenly remember the photo that we took from Iceland on a random empty road as well, hence everyone suggest that we mimic back our same posture again here in Sekinchan. The result was awesome and fun!

Sunset was amazing here in Sekinchan.
Finally, the huge orange went down to the horizon.
We stop by at Jalan Pasar area trying to look for a restaurant for our dinner, and majority vote prefer to have seafood. After having some visual analysis nearby, we finally choose to have our dinner here at restaurant Kim Kee. One of the simple reason was the shop was small and looks old, but the crowd is full here compare to others!
We order spicy lala, fried egg with bitter gourd, prawn mantis, steam fish, crab, and squid for 8 of us, and the food was nice. Only complaint for us with the food was the sauce used to cook the prawn mantis, crab, and squid seem to be the same, it could be better if there was other variety to choose from. We even bet among our self on the expected price for the dinner, and surprisingly it was less than RM200 for this much of seafood! This shop deserve a recommendation for sure.
Everyone is very hungry by now. Photo credited to PPP.
Fried egg with bitter gourd.
Well deserve dinner place when you are in Sekinchan.
The rest of the night was so crazy and full or laughter, most of us does not even recall how we even when to sleep.
Next morning we have our breakfast at 香记海鲜肉骨茶 and order the famous Jacky Wu set meal for 8. Good way of advertisement being done by the shop. After the breakfast, we stop by Redang beach but just stay for a while as it was too crowded here with lots of cars and tourists. Hybrid mention that when he is here few years back, there was only few cars parking when he reach. Nowadays there are more and more shops and stalls doing business here, change the place from a quiet beach become a busy tourism area. Although it did bring prosperity to the village, but I guess it did change the original look of the place, hope the people will still work hard to keep the original culture on the place.

Back to Kuala Lumpur area and we have some time left to gather together, hence CK brough us to a cafe of his friend, Bookmark Coffee in Taman Connaught which serve coffee with some really artistic art. Sue Hui coffee was most impressive one as the owner did the latte art based on a photo of her blowing snow flake when we are back in Iceland. For some professional barista, this might cause some damage to the quality of the coffee, but from innovation wise, this was awesome and really bring joy to their customers.
There was time with Pokemon Go was so hot.
Here come the latte art, cute cat with watermelon.
