Christmas Day 09 to Gertak Sanggul, Teluk Kumbar

Continued from previous post where I talk about going to the Jelutong seafront promenade, after that I thought of going to Queensbay Mall but I didn’t know what to do at there. I believe there sure will be many people too because it’s a public holiday, so we went somewhere else where we haven’t been to before.

It’s around 4pm, afternoon tea time, we went to the food stall at the market near to Sunshine Square at Bayan Lepas to eat our afternoon tea. I had a bowl of laksa there and they ordered themselves a bowl of tomyam noodle.

After tea time, there’s 2 lame ideas for next destination, one is Auto City and another is Gertak Sanggul, Teluk Kumbar. I didn’t feel like going to Auto City because I was there 3 days before Christmas so we went driving up to Gertak Sanggul for fun, pointless, it’s just driving.

Was thinking to check out the beach or something near to the sea but found out that there’s a bridge which connected out to the sea, and the bridge is broken and not usable. Too bad.

We were at the seaside in Jelutong and we were at the seaside again at Teluk Kumbar. I don’t know this place is Gertak Sanggul or Teluk Kumbar. I like to call it Teluk Kumbar more, so any idea, precisely, this place is Gertak Sanggul or Teluk Kumbar? I think is somewhere between Gertak Sanggul and Teluk Kumbar.

There’s sea, a good spot for sunset but we were early and we were so far away from sunset yet, like 1 hour more till sunset, moreover it was drizzling a little bit.

It started to rain a little bit and we ran away from there. Since there’s no bridge, there’s no beach, nothing much to see, we went to other place again. Christmas Day 09 haven’t end yet!
