My brother took care of the transportation – we would be going to Kota Bharu by bus as all the comfy KTMB sleeping berths tickets were sold out! Dapat tiket bas Transnational 2 tingkat... bas sampai ke Terminal Putra lewat ya amat and to make matters worse, kami dapat seat kat tingkat atas. Our bikes got the best location for storage, right near the extra driver’s sleeping berth. Aku takut kalau bas buat kona baring along the windy Karak highway and the notorious Gua Musang road and cause the bikes to fall upon the poor sleeping driver! Alas it did not happen. We had the bikes wrapped up in a bag and the driver was surprised when we told him that we have folding bikes in our bags! Rasanya malam tu tah beberapa kali I found myself flying out of my seat...tiap kali bas ambil kona.. macam terbang rasanya!
We then headed out to TESCO in Kg Sireh where our hotel is located, right near a 7-Eleven store. Since it was still early in the morning, we had our breakfast and we were feeling really good that decided that we would be heading to Safwan’s house on two wheels and abandoned our primary idea of riding our bike to Wakaf Bharu train station to commute to Pasir Mas.
A GPS was at hand to provide the much needed guidance and we had barely started our journey when we noticed that there was some special event that was taking place in Kg Sireh. It was some sort of gathering of people with so many silat demonstrations taking place at the same time and at the nearby Kelantan River banks, there was also a fishing competition taking place.
Took some photos at the silat demonstrations. Later I accosted a police officer to inquire whether bicycles are permitted to use the bridge to cross the Kelantan River and he was quite amused of our idea taking a bicycle trip to attend a wedding but gave his utmost support! Kelante ni jale sume sumbat belako... kalo naik beskal bagus!...
