Traveling Map, from Temerloh to Kuala Besut
Second pit stop detour left out of highway, to the Cheneh Petrol Station for refueling.  Takut tak ada petrol stesen di Highway LPT2.
Third pit stop and change of driver at R&R Kijal. Rupanya ada Petron mini petrol stesen di sini.
Kuala Besut Bridge
Kami ke Perhentian pada 5/5/2018, lima hari sebelum Pilihan Raya Umum ke 14 (General Election GE14). Jadi meriahlah dengan poster-poster parti. Big billboard gambar Najib Razak terpampang di sepanjang highway LPT2 kedua-dua arah, setiap satu kilometer. Berapalah kos kempen dan poster ni?, berbilion!!. Meluat tengok, patutlah rakyat Terengganu menolak BN.

Sampai di Kuala Besut pada jam 12:30 tengah hari. Semasa kereta kami berpusing2 mencari tempat parking, seorang lelaki bermotorsikal menegur: "Nak ke Perhentian ke?, dah ada ticket ke?".
Kami kata tak de, lalu dia mengajak ke pejabat pelancongannya - Aina Holidays Sdn. Bhd.
Urusan parking kereta berpagar juga dibuat oleh lelaki itu.

My first time in a high power speedboat.  Although the weather was good, and no big waves, the ride was  bumpy. Luckily I sat at the back near the captain, so I didn't feel that bad. I saw no one had seasick or vomiting.
Life jackets are provided enough for every passengers, and mandatory.

This building was built in 2011, and named as Ar-Rahman Mosque, in remembrance of  Dr. Abdul. Rahman Mohktar, native of  Perhentian Kecil. He was Besut State Assemblyman from 2008 to his sudden demise in 2013.

Found it in a flat seabed at about 15 feet deep. I took off a life-jacket (please don't it), hold a breath and dive to get it.

"Laju...laju...buaiku laju
Pohon beringin tegaknya tinggi
Kalau rendah menyapu bumi
Penghibur aku menolong aku
Bertiuplah oh angin bayu
Laju...laju...buaiku laju
Akulah anak yatim piatu"
