It has been quite some time since I last travelled long distance in a car. I enjoyed the scenery and our convoy actually crossed the borders of 4 states - Federal Territory KL, Selangor, Negri Sembilan and Pahang.
We stopped at Kuala Pilah for breakfast. Everyone was thinking of Nasi Lemak, Fried Mee or the normal menu that we choose from for breakfast when in KL. However, we ended up eating freshly cooked white rice with gulai lemak rebung + daging salai, lemak patin and lemak pucuk ubi. They were indeed delicious...How unfortunate that I forgot to capture the dishes with my camera so that I have a lasting visual memory of them. That was my first time eating dging salai and I liked it a lot.
|Ombak Rindu 2|
Since the akad was taking place at night, my friend and I decided to ricky the road to the bride's house. We were indeed glad that it's only about 7 minutes away from the Resort we were staying in.

We were very happy to meet Nik and her family, especially her mum. Nevertheless, it is sad to find out that her father was admitted to the Pekan Hospital a few days back. He was unable to be the wali for Nik but all arrangements to replace him went quite smoothly.
After having some kuih and a cup of Nescafe, we went to the jetty nearby to see if we could buy some ikan bilis and perhaps find out where we could purchase udang galah before we leave home the next day. We did not find out anything much but we were happy with the view that we saw. It was picturesque and made me feel calm.
The akad ceremony was brief and simple. With one lafaz, Nik was officially the wife of Abdul Razak. Alhamdulillah...
My prayers go to her with hopes that she will finally find her happiness eternally.
We left Kuala Rompin Sunday morning after we managed to buy 2 kilos of lobsters. We thought it was a good bargain. We hoped it was indeed!!!
The trip back home was smooth. The weather was sunny and bright. I enjoyed the scenery along the journey all over again, the way I did when we were going yesterday.
A brief but memorable trip indeed.
