DAY 2: Tanjung Sepat - Sungai Pelek

Moving time: 3h42m
Distance: 51.3 km
Average speed: 13.9 km/h

Despite sleeping quite late the night before (12.30-ish?), everyone woke up pretty early and off we went to have our seafood bak kut teh breakfast at Ah Hock.


Hmmmm, honestly speaking, Klang BKT (bak kut teh) is so much nicer! This was my first time trying seafood BKT and I've been really curious about the taste, and it didn't disappoint.... On the curiousity, I mean. The taste was, hmm, some kind of different that it's in the 'been there done that' list, so nope for second time. BKT and seafood just don't add up lah in my opinion. We ordered two pots of BKT, one was the seafood version and the other was the original pork version. I think because of the seafood, the broth didn't taste as good and the seafood also didn't taste that good, not even the prawn. It just isn't my cup of 'tea'*, if you know what I mean.
