This page is dedicated to my dad who was a tin miner here.
Sungai Lembing is approximately about 45 kilometers from Kuantan.
I was born in this small town and live in Dynamite Creek until I was in my teen when we move to Kuantan as the mining slowly died.
I remember my younger days when we used to buy freshly warm bread from the bakery and Sungai Lembing biscuits and eat it with home made kaya (jam made of coconut, egg and flavoured with pandan leave).
Yes Sungai Lembing have their own bakery the one and only too. This bakery mainly bakes bread and the famous Sungai Lembing biscuits.
My mom will always ask us to bring lunch for my dad who works is the mine and we always take shortcut to go to the mine and then walk to school.
Everyone know each other not by our name but by whose daughter or son we are! Yes you will get caught if you do mischief, like what happen to us kids after school. We went swimming and plunge in the river was caught and sent back home for warning. I guess kids will be kids.
On one of my trip to London at the immigration the officer ask me where in Pahang you were born so I told him Sungai Lembing. He smile and said tin mine town. I was really surprise he knows Sungai Lembing. I am so proud to be born here.
I usually visit Sungai Lembing once in a while but its really sad to see this town now. I was in tears to see where my old house use to be. It is now a jungle.
Coming back to Sungai Lembing always bring back memories to me especially my younger days of swimming in the river, playing at the waterfall, climbing Sungai Lembing(Panorama)hill and etc.
This is good memories and will be cherish forever!
