Sungei Lembing Trip – Part 2

We continued our journey to Sungei Lembing and Michael, our tour leader who is also a master street photographer, informed that lunch and toilet break would be in another 2 hours or thereabout when we arrived in Pahang.

Our main entree – Fried Chicken Biryani.

Michael Lee said it’s good and we have to take this former chef’s word for it! 😀

The chicken was crispy outside and yet quite tender. The rice was fluffy but not as fragrant as I had expected. Maybe my stuffy nose and coated tongue corrupted my tastebuds. Personally, I prefer Biryani Dum (almost the same except that the meat is cooked buried in the rice). Everyone seemed happy with their lot. What was clear to me was that we had a good time making lots of noise in the restaurants we visited and on board the bus during our journey. Of course, I was the loudest when not dozing in between the ride (I only had half an hour’s rest the past 24 hours)! 😀
