A bicycle ride back home, the kampung (village) way

It's always the best to cycle back home, especially after having a lavish meal at KFC.

I always use the kampung (village) small roads to go back home. As it was much nearer and shorter compared to the main road. Here here it goes.

The old, rusty but still tough bridge, crossing over the Perlis river.

It says that it is "closed", but it's still opened, just that the signboard remains there.

On the bridge itself. Going up.

Lot's of garbage down there...

Big on-the-water houses with big fishing boats.

The river view facing inland.

Police boats, docking at Customs and Immigration pier.

The bridge is not too far away from the Straits of Malacca. There is the Fishery pier, and behind it is the jetty to Langkawi Island.

Some young girls loiters on the top of the bridge.

Hmmm the power of mother nature...

Reaching the other side of the river. More or less the same. The water must be nearing their doors during high tides.

The end of the bridge. Notice the roads are cement roads.

So here are some pictures I managed while cycling through this village.

For first timer, the windy and zig-zag roads will certainly get him nuts. After 2 years living here, I memorize the road going to and fro town by heart. Hehe.

So, back to the main road, and cycle back home.

Route R105 - Kampung Seberang Alor to Kampung Wai :)

Cars are definitely not needed in Kuala Perlis. Bicycle rocks. Hehe. Life goes on.

God bless you all!
