View over Kuantan.

It's business trip to Terengganu and Pahang last week. We stopped at a number of places, one was Kuantan. I took a few pictures over Kuantan from 9th floor of M.S. Garden Hotel. Kuantan is beautiful in its own way....

Tenaga Nasional Berhad Building (National Energy  Company)

the river, Sungai Kuantan forefront.

a hotel, a bridge and a river.

Government office in the middle

a mixture

stadium in the front with 4 floodlights

bright yellow building, very catchy

a school on the left  got stuck in the middle of things

 I saw a few buildings with rather empty rooftops 
that can be turned into
profitable  green rooftop gardening

Modern buildings blend well with houses squeezed through avalanche of modernization, as more office and business space are needed. It is within this setting that Dato Burn fell in love with a Pahang girl, got married, and settled down. The river remain as it is, carrying everything to the river mouth. It holds the history of Kuantan over the many hundred of years.

Bangchik and Kakdah


  1. can be turned into
    profitable green rooftop gardening --- YES!

    ~ Most building owners are rich people, so rooftop gardening may not be their cup of tea, unless we go around the theme of greening cities, being environmental friendly and helping out young entrepreneurs. It needs a great deal of persuasion!
