Swift Weekend

A wedding of a yet to meet cousin was a good enough reason to visit this quaint little town in the heart of Pahang again. Bentong. Arrived early on saturday to find The hotel fully booked. No checking in until after 2pm!! The highlight of the morning, a stroll through the open market. Bentong famous for it's fragrant ginger and watercress. Watching how live chickens were slaughtered sents chills for youngest. Local vegetation and malay ulam fascinates me.
In the midst of swifts and swallows doing aerial dives, soaring up and twirling in the air, people went about their daily lives.

Spending time in countrysides and observing how the local goes about lives truly brings one to appreciate the simple thing in live.
