Balik Pulau – lousy foods, good durians, awesome sunset


Durian season is peaking at the moment. However, the branded durian ain’t cheap. Still it is a once a year affair and the farmers need to feed their families, you know?


All my children are durian eaters because they have liulian mother.


We went to Bukit Genting. Lousy foods. Gawdy decor.


Nice views though.


The sunset was awesome because of the dusty atmosphere.


In fact, the only thing worthy in Bukit Genting is the sunset.

It has been a while since I took photos of sunset, flower, fun stuffs. Lately, it has been sob sob stories of others’ lives, harsh reality of daily things and etc. Whatever happened to me? Who moved my cheese?

  1. The Bukit Genting place is still operating?? The one with the steep steep slope? I look at the steep slope also sked to drive up.

  2. Momo – Yalor, I thought closed liao. That day, we citizen journalists went up to film the balik pulau highway and I got a video of Bukit Genting. It seems to be lagi steep. I tell my sons, if I drive, I sure pee in my car seat and my knees sure all lembik till cannot stand.
