A spectacular view marred by a landfill, which stretches hundreds of metres parallel to the KT river bank, next to Jalan Bandar
1200: We have lunch inside one of the old Chinese homes along the Terengganu River. The interior of the house is long, the century-old building having been extended closer and closer to the river-bank over the years.
One of the residents kindly invites us to lunch: nasi dagang, local rice with tuna fish wrapped in banana leaf and served with curry.
What would have been a fabulous view from the wooden verandah over the river bank is marred by a narrow landfill that stretches for hundreds of metres, parallel to the river banks.
A relative of the houseowner tells me the landfill was done for the Monsoon Cup. Whatever the reason, it has spoilt what would have been a terrific waterfront setting.
