Ridel River Front at Sunset

When visiting Kota Bharu for business, Ridel Hotel is where I used to set foot in, simply because of the facilities and the location of it. On awesome thing about this place is that it faces a river front and sometime during the evening, you’ll find some great sunset scene.

Here’s what happen one evening. At about 7.30pm, I’ve decided to take my early dinner, when I was coming out of the lift, I was confronted with this scene.
On this day, the sky was bright and clear, we usually gets hazzy sky but today was good. So I run up to my room and grab the camera.

However due to the rough sea condition with wave hitting the shore at great force, sand erosion has becoming a problem and the beach is beginning to be eaten away by the wave. In order to slowdown this process, big large rock's fortress was build. This Rock fortress has changes the scene of Pantai Cahaya Bulan from what it used to be before, but there's still sufficient beach available to enjoys.

Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah, Kota Bharu

Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah, Kota Bharu
One place that must visit when visiting Kota Bharu, Kelantan is the central market, which is also known as Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah.
It is a wet market where people come and buy their daily glossaries. Products ranges from vegetables to seafood. Beside the wet market which is located on the ground floor, upper floors consist small cubical shops that sell all kind of stuffs. There are probably some good bargain stuff to look for.
What is interesting about Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah, is the amount of vegetable you can find in every stalls. My visit was a bit late, almost near noon and some of the stalls are closed.
Here’s one that is still working and you can see the amount of veggies she has to sell each day.
Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah is also one of the popular place that attracts photographer, I guess is the verities of colors and the life and living of people in this place that makes photographer so interested to photograph.
