We have not conducted a survey , but we have a feeling that this area ( Manjung ) spread over lush forests , mangrove swamps & coconut plantations does indeed promise aplenty.
Smokey ikan bakar / tomyam / masakan laut shops with their impeccable Minangkabau roof tops dot the landscape , some appearing from nowhere amongst deep undergrowth !
promising a mean array of 'Sajian Lumut' ( dishes of Lumut )
the pride ( still unmatched ) of Masakan Melayu
( mee udang "selat dindings" ) in the business ! RM6
restoran Sajian Lumut

but still, just had to try
who knows things might be different this time around
After all it was called Double 8 and came all da way from t(horny) Pahang
It looked so rugged , damn solid and had such a sweet pungent smell...
just as a proud Royal should be

Not only green hills and the blue sea
There are easily 30 Malay warungs /restaurants & 4 major Mamak eateries here too , all in a little town with only a few short streets !
the neat & tidy view usually stuns the first time traveller to the place as the magnificent Lumut Waterfront overwhelms him .
and you would be surprised at this hidden restaurant right beside the Lumut jetty !

Memories of Old Malacca with its fascinating Chinese & European heritage continue to haunt us.
We can't forget those young exotic Portugese beach maidens & mysterious sarung clad Nyonyas.
...and the legendary Princess with her epic band of playful bodyguards
suddenly...many worlds' away...
out of the Hakka infested and messy concrete jungle
shines the promise of famous Malacca/Hainanese specialties
in a tight little intermediate lot kopitiam styled
here in humid , over-crowded & traffic chocked
Sunway Mas Petaling Jaya
some hits a few misses
near Aman Suria
( beside Taman Mayang )
Tall & strong
and strangely , not as tough as you think
best with red wine

Who knows what lies dangerously yonder , when the urge strikes hard and great standing effort is needed once again to discharge meself honorably.
You cannot depend on those roundables who are more interested in standing infront of da mirrors on deck, peering into the sky
