A LAZY SUNDAY by Delphine Saira Gomez
In Sekinchan I remember the earthy, crunching sound of gravel under my feet…the goreng pisang shack with piping hot bananas, yam, sweet potato, teh- tarik and cold iced tea. Drawn to the vast bright green padi fields I remember the coconut trees, all kinds of birds such as swifts, cranes, egrets, a kingfisher and …an owl?. Rickety, unkempt small towns are fairly laid back on Sundays with coffee shops running business as usual. Managed to catch a quick bite in the simple town of Ijok before heading off to Pantai Redang in Sekinchan.
While It was painful to see waste everywhere 'litterally' tarnishing the beautiful natural surroundings and townscapes, I daydreamed Malaysia as an exotic tropical paradise, the Asian garden of Eden. No doubt, the potential is there.
