A visit to Temerloh 淡马鲁之行

 

十一月八日,星期天, 我与太太,还有李太(陈少芳)及凌太(吴秀梅)到彭亨州的淡马鲁,参加在小刘(Lau)家举行的集会。


我们都是2012年,云南摄影之旅 的队员。我们在结束那趟旅游之后,许多队员以脸书及集会保持联络,因此成为了朋友。(可以观看我们的旅程)

八位队员去年在加影就集会了一次 (观看我们又见面了)

前往淡马鲁途中,我们在文冬停留,拜访了林志强。志强刚刚在今天的星报新闻中,被公布为亚太摄影比赛中,获得第一名。

我们为此而高兴,与他一起到武吉公满新村吃午餐,作为庆祝。

午餐后,我们续程前往淡马鲁。

淡马鲁是彭亨州第二大的城市,坐落在两条河交汇处,并以盛产河鱼出名。它的另一个称号是“巴丁鱼城市,因为这里出产美味的巴丁鱼 (Patin) 而出名。

小刘与太太Jessy 热情的欢迎我们,并一同到一家咖啡店喝茶。他们特别介绍道地的Kiam-Si茶(茶加炼奶及鲜奶)

这次能够出席的队员除了我们之外,还有来自吉隆坡的Yi Von,Eagle Leong, Chong 和Elayne夫妇。

往后的24小时里,我们就是吃、喝及游玩。小刘夫妇介绍了我们许多道地的美食佳肴,其中一道非常特别的是淡马鲁马来式Tempoyak Ikan Patin ,一道以发酵榴莲作配料的巴丁鱼。

我们也逛了星期天的露天市集。这里沿着整公里的道路,有着上百档位,售卖着本地的特产、水果、鲜鱼、食物及家庭用品,非常的热闹。

我们在星期天下午约三点左右,离开淡马鲁,尽兴而归。

谢谢小刘夫妇的热情及慷慨的接待。

明年再见!

Temerloh is the second largest town in the state of Pahang and situated at the confluence of Pahang River and Semantan River. Temerloh is also knowed as " Bandar Patin" (Patin city) as it is the home of Patin fish.

We arrived at about 3:30 pm. Our host Lau (Chee Hak) and wife Jessy welcomed us warmly to their home and later a coffee shop for tea.

For the next 24 hours, we were treated to many delicious Temeloh food and delicacies including a very special dish called Tempoyak Patin fish, a Malay dish of patin fish cooked with fermented durian. 

We also visited the Pekan Sehari (one day market), a Sunday street market where hundreds of stalls selling different types of produce, food and clothing.
