One word to describe Pulau Pangkor: warm.

Pangkor looked best in orange when the island was basked in golden sunset. When the warm setting sun sat at the horizon between the unclouded sky and the shimmering water, it looked simply splendid!

The locals were as warm as the sunny weather. Everywhere we visited, smiles and greetings were not lacking. On a few occasions, we received unconditional help from the people, like when our bike ran out of fuel in the midst of a road trip.

It doesn't matter if the beaches were not the best, Pangkor, with its people and rusticity, has its own sweet, orangy charm.

Blue paradise

Pangkor is not all orange. There is the azure sky that matches the blue sea during the day. We were grateful for the clear, bright sky that accompany us as we rode on the road or hopped from beach to beach.

Remembering Pangkor

ZZ, my companion for the trip, and I at Teluk Nipah. 'Beachboy!', ZZ echoed everyday. Then YS joined us on the last day. Without them and the bikes, I would be stranded on the road.

The most memorable part of the trip was when we lost the key of our vehicle in the late evening at Tortoise Bay. It happened at a bad timing when we were watching the beautiful sunset. We searched for it for a long time but to no avail.

Thankfully, a local youth (believed it's the one on the main pic) helped us to contact Mr Tan, who provided the bike rental. HS lingered strongly in our hearts. Heard of 'Celebrate Jesus, celebrate'?. We sang and did the song's actions while waiting for Mr Tan, the owner to bring us a replacement at the remote spot. We probably looked like oversized monkeys to the motorists when they passed the road in the dim street lights. But we were just so glad.

It was very dark when we finally got the bike moving. A bird nearly hit us on our heads when it flew low and towards us on the road. A good reason to wear helmets!
