Street in Rantau Panjang.

Motorbikes provide a convenient way to get around the town. There are many of them in these rural towns.

A drive through the main street in Rantau Panjang, Kelantan.

A storm is approaching, adding an intense mood to this border town. A narrow section of Sungai Golok separates the town from Thailand. For an outsider visiting the first time, the feeling is noticeably edgy.

don't worry, be happy

A few months after I was retrenched, my friend Tham took me on a 10-days 2,500 km drive from Kuala Lumpur to Penang, Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang and various places in Selangor.

We call this Yeah Yeah 1.0 vacation. I am getting the album updated before Yeah Yeah 2.0

Sungai Golok Malaysia - Thanland border.

Malaysia (left side) and Thailand separated by Sungai Golok, Rantau Panjang.

Rantau Panjang is a bustling border town about 40 km from Kota Bharu, Kelantan. It is separated from Thailand by Sungai Golok (Golok River).

This rustic town has a duty-free zone popular for its Thai foodstuff, clothing and housewares. Not a sleepy town, the atmosphere here is generally intense.
