I spent this year’s Labor’s day holiday at Tanjung Sepat. This impromptu trip was decided on the day itself after coming back from my maiden gym workout. First stop was at Asam Batu Laut Restaurant for late lunch. I’ve been to this eatery back in 2013 and found the seafood to be fresh and delicious. So we came back for more!
Clockwise from left: salted mantis prawn, asam steamed snapper fish, marmite baby octopus and sizzling hot plate oyster. Not in photo is a plate of dragon vegetables.
After our hearty lunch, we stopped at Ganofarm, a mushroom and lingzhi farm. I expected a free visit inside the mushroom farm but what we got was some variety of mushrooms growing outside the factory and a shop selling all sort of processed food including their very own mushroom (fresh). We saw lots of tourist coming out of the shop carrying shopping bags on their left and right hand but we didn’t buy anything. Weird. Haha
Oyster mushroom. My sis’ fav. LOL
In the vicinity of Ganofarm, you can walk out to the open sea and this was the view. Beautiful! Love the sea breeze too.
Then it’s a short drive away to Lover Bridge. Unfortunately about half of the Lover Bridge was destroyed (by strong wave I guess), so I did not take any photo of the bridge.
This photo showing the silhouette of the wooden hut/bridge near Ganofarm (where we were at earlier) was taken from Lover Bridge.
This is Lover Bridge Restaurant, snapped from Lover Bridge.
An outdoor makeshift TV area right at the beach beside Lover Bridge. Can you see the Ah Peks enjoying their TV time?
Then we stopped by this food shop near to Lover Bridge for some food shopping.
There is an open field where you can park your car near Lover Bridge and this is where I took this photo. Parking fee is RM3 per entry. Expensive but still have to park lo.
We stopped by at Hai Yew Heng pao just to look see. Didn’t buy any paos because the queue was extremely long. I have no patience to wait under the sweltering heat. You can’t see the queue here because it’s at the other side.
Then to Joo Fa Trading to buy their coffee. Their white coffee was sold out. Only remaining were the 2nd grade and 3rd grade coffee. We bought the 2nd grade coffee bag to try at home. The coffee was aromatic and nice.
Beautiful sunset on the way back home. That’s not a shooting star ya. It’s an aircraft.
Another sunset at Banting area.
Although I mentioned ‘Quaint Village’ in the title of this post, there was no village to be seen. I totally forgot to snap the old shops/houses. I find the Tanjung Sepat village to be very cozy and nice. Some of the roads in this village is quite narrow and you park mostly by the roadside. Overall it was a nice short trip. I’ll come back for the pao and more seafood next time. 😉
I refer to this Tanjung Sepat map for this trip.
