Trip to Bintulu

Sunday morning we took the coastal road to Bintulu. This is also known as the new road, but considering its bumpyness I would say it lost some of its new feel. It is a ride mostly through huge palm oil plantations.

In Bintulu we visited one of Rachel’s friends to celebrate Hari Raya (also known as Aidilfitri). To celebrate the end of ramadan (this celebration goes on for a number of weeks) with a table full of veried sweets.

After that we went into town for a meal and visited a local part, combination of a small zoo and botanical garden.
