TRAVEL TO TELUK INTAN DECEMBER 2016

Hi Wanderlusts,


It has been long since I talked about food and also travelling. I am separating this post with the food post or else I cannot fit this inside one post. I don’t earn much so I can only afford to travel in Malaysia so if you are looking for some other Asians’ hot spot for youngster, then this is probably not going to be it.


Teluk Intan actually means “Diamond Bay” if translated to English. It sounds really glamorous right? No, there is no diamond mine to dig from this place XD. The name is taken from a famous beautiful women that got her diamond fall into the river that she was bathing and this the name.

This place is full of one ingredients that is in the Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask and Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

If you have managed to guess it correctly. Yes, it is the oil palm trees! This is how it look like if you are interested in seeing how one of the ingredient looks like.

Nope, it doesn’t smell nice and it doesn’t shade well. More like stinky oily earthy smell and if you work with the palm oil before. So, let’s stop discussing about palm oil. I am sorry that I bore you.

Okay, here is the famous leaning tower of Teluk Intan which is build since 1885-you can call it Dupe of Pisa, Italy. Hahahaha. It is leaning and just hope that it doesn’t come crashing down anytime soon. If you look at it, you might think that it is eight storey high but it is actually just three storey high. It is used as water tank to distribute water in the past. Yeah, talk about the hardship when people have to walk really far, queue up for hours to carry precious water back home. Now, it is a Natural Heritage, historical monument and there is maintained because the colour does seems better compare to picture in the past.

Kompleks Aik Aik. There are some small shops selling accessories in there. It feels abandoned because there are not many tenants in there and it is so dark in there that you will feel like it is some sort haunted building.

The Store

The Store. This is a shopping store. It is not really that huge but okay for shopping. If you like shopping, then Kuala Lumpur would be more interesting and better. There is a popular Halal shop for mee rebus right across this building so this is a landmark if you plan to for the Mee Rebus. I will talk about that in my food post.

This is the temple near the public bank in the town. This temple is really old and older than the Leaning tower of Teluk Intan. Of course it, this is the part of old area of how Teluk Intan used to look like. The area in front of the building will sink every time it rains so it is dangerous. That is why you can see the tires and sand in front of here. It won’t get fill up no matter how much people fill in.

Even most shop near there closes down. There is a story of how Teluk Intan leaning tower came about after this temple but it is known to only a few of the older generation. Anyone interested to listen to some grandmother story????

The road that makes you feel like you are in some western country but minus the high 36 Celsius degree temperature. Beautiful right?

old house in Teluk Intan

This is an example of an old house. No, we don’t live in the trees. This is in the 1950s where life is difficult and it is said that houses in this row are haunted. Now, most of it had collapsed or demolished.


There is a river here but only if you are interested on a YELLOW river with a story about two crocodiles in there. I only heard it from the locals that there is two crocodiles living in that river.

There isn’t much to see in Teluk Intan other than the famous dupe of Pisa tower. If you are here, food is your second reason to visit Teluk Intan. I will recommend all the food that I ate in the next post because it is way too long to talk about it here.


I will suggest to drive if you plan to come over to Teluk Intan because public transport is not readily available and difficult. All food places are far from each other. Moreover, remember to get those parking ticket from a bookstore (you need a parking ticket else you will need to pay compound ) and it is always congested(with cars) in the town.


Do comments if you like my post because it means a lot to me.

November month Cubecrate brought to me a surprise box ๐Ÿ˜ again.  It is extra special since it is my birthday month and I am really sorry for the postman to deliver it on a raining day๐Ÿ˜ญ . I thank you Mr.Postman for your dedication to deliver my box despite such bad weather.

Normally, I would be having a giveaway but I don't think I could make it this year for many reasons.  So without further bla bla bla about my life, here is what is inside the box.

This month theme is working desk space๐Ÿ’“

REVIEW ON TEFAL MANUAL CHOPPER

I think most of the time for Asian cooking is spend on cutting onions, garlic and also chilies ๐Ÿ˜–.  It is really a hassle and sometimes I just wish I can dump the whole big chunk of onions or garlic into the wok. Wok is Asian 5 in 1 cooking utensils. Wiki mentioned it as versatile round bottom cooking vessel.

So, when I received this in my Box of Joy ๐Ÿ˜I was so excited to try if this Tefal Manual Chopper could really chop stuff since someone told me that it is useless๐Ÿ˜Ÿ. Don't tell me to use my only blender for meat and for my vegetables because I won't ๐Ÿ˜…

Here is a review on Tefal Manual Chopper.

Tefal Manual Chopper claims that It chop food items in 5seconds. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Only if you can pull it fast enough in 5 seconds. If you take a break like me, it is going to be more than 5 seconds. I use it actually to make minced meat.  The chopper knife is really sharp so becareful when handling. I do find that the plastic made from good quality and it is easy to scoop out my cooking ingredients from it. Washing it in also easy.

Tefal Manual Chopper really cut down  my cooking time because it can make minced fish meat way more faster than I chop it manually๐Ÿ˜ฒ. By manual labour with knife, it takes me an hours and I smelt like rotten fish after that.  With Tefal Manual Chopper, I just put the cleaned up fish into the chopper, close the lid and pull the string for about 10 times until it becomes minced meat. The food also taste better with this manual chopper than in blended since it does not heat up.  Blender tend to 'heat' up the food so it doesn't taste as good as chopped with Tefal Manual Chopper.

Also beware of ones that look like this but is not even able to cut onions.  Good Tefal Manual Chopper is even able to chop fish meat into minced one so that is the good quality of product for you. Also it is so good that it doesn't use electricity which is really good for wanting to save up on bills.๐Ÿ’“

So, overall I think this is a great products if you are constantly looking for affordable manual chopper that does it job.  Indeed a handy product to have.
