    Nice job. Kompleks Teruntum also a shopping mall. This is the 1st shopping mall in Kuantan. 2. I thought the restraunt that sells shark meat has shifted out from light industrial area. AFAIK it is near the Medan Selera in Kuantan Garden. corner shop.

    Hi. Good job on Kuantan page. Simple yet informative. FYI, Berjaya Megamall is not only shopping mall in Kuantan. There is another one called Kuantan Parade near Kompleks Teruntum.

    Looks quite pleasant. I've still yet to spend any time on the east coast. Maybe next year. Hello from your neighbor down south!
