Closing Night in Kuala Terengganu

<—-Previous Story

In the afternoon….It was a quarter to six….

I sat in the front seat on the left when Bas KITē slowly left the Tamadun Islam Park complex. Via the only connecting bridge, Bas KITē completed its wheel loop over Wan Man Island.

Only me….
The driver.

Now the Bas KITē would complete the remaining half of the journey to the Hentian Bas Majlis Bandaraya Kuala Terengganu, when I got there, the bus would take a break to operate again tomorrow at half past ten in the next morning.

On the way back to the inn, I was more relaxed and free to talk with the driver. During the rest of the trip, he told about his daily activities with four other Bas KITē drivers in operating that special city bus. He also told about his son who was having a hard time finding work in Kuala Terengganu, many employment sectors chose to use foreign workers which made it difficult for residents to find a livelihood. I only listened to it as a form of empathy, even though I didn’t know the real facts.

On the way back to the inn, the bus driver only took a middle-aged female passenger who seemed to be very familiar with him. Maybe the woman was a subscriber to his Bas KITē, so as soon as she got on, the driver immediately familiarly asked about the woman’s activities throughout the day. The rest after the female passenger boarded, only the two of them had the dominant conversation until the trip was over. The conversation with Terengganu’s thick accent I tried to understand even though I could only absorb it a little.

At a quarter past six I arrived at the Hentian Bas Majlis Bandaraya Kuala Terengganu….

Jumping off the bus and thanking the Bas KITē driver once again for giving me five precious minutes to enjoy the beauty of the Crystal Mosque, I tried to leave the terminal as quickly as possible. I didn’t want to be trapped in the dark in the terminal.

I swiftly walked through Masjid Abidin Street to arrive at the intersection where the PERMINT Tower stood. “What’s that sound?…”, I stopped when I heard a noise from a height. Due to that sound, I backed off from the inn. I was now walking along Sultan Ismail Street towards the source of the sound. “Wow….That’s a flock of sparrows”, I knew now. On the entire face of the Wisma PERMINT building, perched a lot of sparrows calling to each other, making the sound like a pleasant harmony to be heard at sunset.

For so long I was stunned, capturing and videoing the scene that two other tourists suddenly came next to me and did the same. After a while of enjoying the harmony of the sound of the sparrows, simultaneously the street lamps began to come on, and the building lights began to be turned on, making the path along Sultan Ismail Street show off the beauty of its colorful lights.

“Looks like I have to enjoy my closing night in Kuala Terengganu by being on the streets even if only for a moment”, I decided.

My night exploration step started from the KT Walk which was a spacious area that usually presents a night market view for residents. It was just that the night has just begun, and a row of new food stalls was getting ready to entertain their prospective guests who would arrive soon. Because there were no significant activities, I just enjoyed the KT Walk for a moment from a corner of the field.

The night was creeping up and the lights were starting to look more dazzling as the sky darkened. I continued to comb along Sultan Ismail Street and then was stunned at a bookstore that seemed to be the favorite bookstore in the city, SMO Bookstores. “There’s nothing wrong if I go in …”, I idly started.

I rushed into the bookstore. As soon as I entered the shop, I just looked around and visited several bookshelves which were visited by many visitors. “A collection of novels which have been adapted into Malay”, I slightly frowned as a sign that I wasn’t interested in it.

SMO Bookstores isn’t as big as a well-known bookstore brand in Indonesia, the collection isn’t much, but many people visit it. Maybe Malaysia’s good literacy rate makes it so.

I finally left SMO Bookstores and resumed my journey to enjoy the night atmosphere of Kuala Terengganu. Although not too crowded, that night was able to make me a little amazed because, during the two days in Kuala Terengganu, I was more dominant in enjoying the atmosphere of the day. Even though the sparkling lamp that night wasn’t as beautiful as in Kuala Lumpur, it still kept its charm. A city that wasn’t so crowded was showing its beauty at night.

I turned at the corner at the northern end of Air Jernih Street, which was still doing business. Walking along the street, I stopped again at a 7-Eleven, I purposely entered it to look for fast food on my dinner menu. I felt like I have been reluctant to go back a little further to visit “Kedai Kak Na” which I visited that afternoon. It was better to just look for perfunctory food at the mini market.

I came out of the 7-Eleven with a packet of fried rice that had been heated in the microwave for a while. I immediately left the minimarket to the inn while enjoying the remaining scenery. Continuing a little step on Kota Lama Street, I turned left on Engku Pangeran Anom 2 Street and then arrived at the inn, The Space Inn…

Engku Pangeran Anom, who is it?

Engku Pangeran Anom was a Terengganu noble with the full name Pengiran Anum Engku Abdul Kadir bin Engku Besar. He was a man who really understood the history of Terengganu and was often a reference to the sultanate which at that time was led by Sultan Ahmad.

I arrived at the inn at exactly half past eight….

It was time for me to wash up, have dinner, fold the clothes and tidy up my backpack because tomorrow I would leave Kuala Terengganu at half past ten in the morning.

Wisma Maidam was towering on Sultan Ismail Street which was used for the Kuala Terengganu Islamic Bank office.
The intersection that I often pass every day while in Kuala Terengganu.
Umobile Center (Telecommunication Equipment Store) on Engku Sar Street. Engku Sar refers to the name of the father of Engku Pengiran Anom whose full name is Syed Abdullah Al-Idrus. “Sar” is another name for “Sir”.
Aneka KAMDAR Building on Kota Lama Street is used as an ASC (Arena Sports Center) which is a Sports Venue business in Kuala Terengganu.
Let’s sleep!…. It was 11 p.m.….Tomorrow I would walk again.

BAS KITē ….Kuala Terengganu’s Mainstay City Bus

<—-Previous Story

After washing jeans, t-shirts and socks, I took a bath. Made my body fresh and repel shabby. “It’s still too early to sleep, I’d better hang out in the shared-kitchen to fill my water bottles which are starting to recede”, my idea suddenly appeared.

I started downstairs to the second floor where the reception desk and shared-kitchen were located. Arriving there, looked the presence of Mr. Okamoto who slowly brewed the coffee.

“Where was you going today, Mr. Okamoto?” I asked before he smiled as I poured tap water into my drink bottles.

“Hi Donny, I didn’t go everywhere today. I was tired. I decided to take a rest all day in my room”, he chuckled while sipping his own brewed coffee.

“Ohhhhh…..I think you have found a nice destination today….Hahahaha. I see you are very fresh now”, I hasten to sit in front of him and continue the conversation.

Somehow in the beginning, Mr. Okamoto told many things that night….From the charming story of Okinawan culture, memories of drinking coffee with local Acehnese, the behavior of Japanese girls in modern times, the cuteness of a student from Yogyakarta, as well as the ups and downs of being an English teacher at his capital city.

Meanwhile, I added a little story about my adventure to visit Japan three years ago, exploring Terengganu on the first day that afternoon until my plan to explore Middle East a few days ahead.

The specialty of the conversation was a cup of coffee brew made by Mr. Okamoto for me.

Wow…. Arabica coffee was still imagined to be enjoyed until now.

—-****—-

That Monday morning, I accidentally woke up a little late. After the Fajr prayer, I went back to sleep and just woke up at exactly nine in the morning. After bathing, I have breakfast by sipping oat powder that I brought from home, I served the powder in hot water and mixed it with a spoonful of sugar in the inn’s kitchen.

Twenty minutes later I finished breakfast, I started to go downstairs to the first floor and got ready to continue exploring. Looking at the sky, it looked like my second day in Kuala Terengganu would be as hot as yesterday. I stepped through Engku Pengiran Anom 2 Street to reach Air Jernih Street which if pulled straight north would take me to Hentian Bas Majlis Bandaraya Kuala Terengganu.

The bus terminal was still my ally in dissecting the beauty of Kuala Terengganu. At least I knew where to go all Monday.

Oh yes, back to the story a day before, when I arrived at the bus terminal after being escorted by myBAS from Sultan Mahmud Airport, I took a moment to get closer to the BAS KITē stop. I deliberately documented the bus route which is the transportation mode of Kuala Terengganu residents’ mainstay. I had monitored the existence of BAS KITē itself from Jakarta two months before departure.

I got in the BAS KITē
Tasting the BAS KITē…
This was the first route I took.
I couldn’t go up this route, I’m sorry….
Well, Route C02 was the last route I took.

Well, if you went to Kuala Terengganu and wanted to save on costs in exploring the city, then BAS KITē was the best solution. After all, instead of taking a taxi everywhere…. It was expensive.

Let’s see what was a BAS KITē.

According to the results of my conversation with the BAS KITē driver when going to the Crystal Mosque, there were only five buses in Kuala Terengganu, and the drivers were only five people. But on the route board which I managed to photograph, BAS KITē turned out to only have four routes….Hmmm, maybe one unit was a spare bus….Ah, I didn’t know, what were you thinking anyways?

The uniqueness of this city bus lies in its design. When viewed from the outside, the body of this city bus resembles the architecture of a typical Terengganu house. The bus’ glass is designed like an arched window, while the bus’ roof is given a distinctive touch of Terangganu’s carved. While at bus inside, seats and dividing area between driver and passengers are dominated by iron and wood combination, full of Terengganu carvings.

This city bus with a capacity of 36 passengers is operated by Cas Ligas SDN. BHD whose office is in PERMINT Tower, the tower I passed by many times every day when I explored Kuala Terengganu. Cas Ligas SDN. BHD itself is a land and water transportation business in Kuala Terengganu.

To be able to take this city bus to various tourist destinations, you have to prepare a fare ranging from 1 to 5 Ringgit depending on the distance. Cheap right?…..

The city bus which departed the earliest was BAS KITē for Kuala Nerus (direction to the airport but doesn’t stop at the airport if you want to go to the airport just use the myBAS service). That route departed at exactly half past eight in the morning and departs at an interval of 1.5 hours before noon and then departs at intervals of 2 hours when it is past noon. The last bus departs at half past five in the afternoon from Hentian Bas Majlis Kuala Terengganu Airport.

Meanwhile, the city bus which departs at noon is the KITē BAS towards Crystal Mosque. This BAS KITē route first departs at 9:30 am and only provides four trips a day. The last trip departs at five in the afternoon from Hentian Bas Majlis Kuala Terengganu Airport.

Cheap but limited.

With an average distance of two hours for each departure, at least I could visit at least three destinations in different routes. “Enjoy it, don’t be in a hurry….”, that’s how I thought about its limitations.

To keep the mood happy….Yes, right?

Malam Penutup di Kuala Terengganu

<—-Kisah Sebelumnya

Sore hari….Jam enam kurang seperempat….

Aku duduk di kursi paling depan sisi kiri ketika Bas KITē perlahan meninggalkan kompleks Taman Tamadun Islam. Melalui jembatan penghubung satu-satunya, Bas KITē menyudahi putaran roda di atas Pulau Wan Man.

Only me….
Bapak pengemudi yang budiman.

Kini Bas KITē akan menuntaskan setengah perjalanan tersisa menuju Hentian Bas Majlis Bandaraya Kuala Terengganu, sesampainya di sana nanti, bus akan beristirahat untuk beroperasi kembali esok hari pada pukul setengah sepuluh pagi.

Dalam perjalanan pulang itu, aku lebih santai dan leluasa untuk berbincang-bincang dengan si pengemudi. Dalam perjalanan sisa itulah dia bercerita tentang aktivitas hariannya bersama empat pengemudi Bas KITē lain dalam mengoperasikan bus kota istimewa tersebut.  Dia juga bercerita mengenai anaknya yang begitu susah mencari pekerjaan di Kuala Terengganu, banyak sektor pekerjaan memilih menggunakan tenaga kerja asing yang menyebabkan susahnya warga lokal mencari mata pencaharian. Aku hanya mendengarkannya sebagai bentuk empati, walau aku sebenarnya tak tahu fakta aslinya.

Dalam perjalanan pulang itu, pengemudi bus hanya menaikkan satu penumpang perempuan setengah baya yang tampaknya sudah sangat dikenal akrab olehnya. Mungkin perempuan itu adalah langganan Bas KITēnya, sehingga begitu dia naik, si pengemudi langsung bertanya akrab tentang aktivitas si perempuan sepanjang hari. Selebihnya setelah naiknya penumpang perempuan tersebut, hanya percakapan mereka berdua saja yang mendominasi hingga perjalanan usai. Percakapan berlogat kental Terengganu itu mencoba kufahami walau aku hanya bisa meyerapnya sedikit saja.

Jam enam lebih seperempat aku tiba di Hentian Bas Majlis Bandaraya Kuala Terengganu….

Melompat turun dari bus dan mengucapkan sekali lagi rasa terimakasih kepada sang pengemudi Bas KITē yang telah memberikan lima menit berharganya untukku supaya bisa menikmati keindahan Masjid Kristal, aku berusaha secepat mungkin meninggalkan terminal. Aku tak mau terjebak gelap di dalam terminal.

Aku melangkah gesit melalui Jalan Masjid Abidin untuk tiba di perempatan dimana Menara PERMINT berdiri. “Itu suara apa ya?…”, langkahku terhenti ketika mendengar suara berisik dari sebuah ketinggian. Akibat suara itu, aku mengurungkan langkah menuju penginapan. Aku kini melangkah menyusuri Jalan Sultan Ismail menuju sumber suara. “Oalah….Itu sekumpulan burung gereja”, aku kini mengetahuinya. Di seluruh luasan muka gedung Wisma PERMINT, bertengger buanyakkk sekali burung gereja yang bersahutan suara satu sama lain, menjadikan suara itu bak sebuah harmoni yang enak terdengar di saat menjelang maghrib.

Begitu lama aku tertegun, mengabadikan dan memvideokan pemandangan itu hingga dua orang turis lain tiba-tiba datang di sebelahku dan melakukan hal yang sama. Setelah beberapa saat menikmati harmoni suara burung gereja, serentak pelita-pelita jalanan mulai hidup, lampu-lampu gedung mulai dinyalakan, menjadikan jalur di sepanjang Jalan Sultan Ismail memamerkan keindahan lampu warna-warninya.

Sepertinya aku harus menikmati malam penutup di Kuala Terengganu dengan berada di jalanan walau hanya sesaat”, aku memutuskan.

Langkah eksplorasi malamku dimulai dari KT Walk yang merupakan area lapang yang biasanya menyajikan pemandangan pasar malam untuk warga lokal. Hanya saja malam baru saja memulai masanya, deretan kedai makanan baru bersiap diri untuk menjamu calon tamu-tamunya yang akan tiba sebentar lagi. Karena belum ada aktivitas yang berarti, aku pun hanya menikmati sejenak suasana KT Walk dari sebuah pojok tanah lapang itu.

Sisi dalam KT Walk yang masih sepi.

Malam semakin merayap naik dan lampu-lampu mulai tampak lebih mempesona seiring dengan menggelapnya langit. Aku terus menyisir sepanjang Jalan Sultan Ismail untuk kemudian tertegun pada sebuah toko buku yang tampaknya menjadi toko buku favorit di kota itu, SMO Bookstores namanya. “Tak ada salahnya jika aku masuk…”, aku mulai iseng.

Aku bergegas memasuki toko buku itu. Begitu memasuki toko, aku hanya memperhatikan sekitar serta menyambangi beberapa rak buku yang banyak didatangi pengunjung. “Sekumpulan novel yang telah disadur dalam Bahasa Melayu”, aku sedikit mengernyitkan dahi sebagai penanda aku tak meminatinya.

SMO Bookstores itu tak sebesar brand toko buku kenamaan di Indonesia, koleksinya tak seberapa, tetapi banyak warga yang berkunjung di dalamnya. Mungkin tingkat literasi warga Malaysia yang baik membuatnya demikian.

Aku akhirnya keluar dari SMO Bookstores dan kembali melanjutkan perjalan menikmati suasana malam Kuala Terengganu. Walaupun tak terlalu ramai, malam itu mampu membuatku sedikit takjub karena selama dua hari di Kuala Terengganu, aku lebih dominan menikmati suasana siangnya saja. Walau saja gemerlap pelita malam itu tak seindah di Kuala Lumpur, tetap saja menyimpan pesona tersendiri. Sebuah kota yang tak begitu padat sedang menampilkan keelokan malamnya.

Aku menikung di pangkal utara Jalan Air Jernih yang masih saja bergeliat perniagaan. Berjalan di sepanjang jalan itu, langkahku kembali terhenti pada sebuah 7-Eleven, aku sengaja memasukinya untuk mencari makanan cepat saji sebagai menu makan malamku. Rasanya aku telah enggan kembali melangkah sedikit jauh untuk mengunjungi Kedai Kak Na yang siang tadi kusambangi. Lebih baik mencari makanan ala kadarnya saja di minimarket itu.

Aku keluar dari 7-Eleven dengan menenteng nasi goreng kemasan yang sudah dipanaskan dalam microwave untuk beberapa saat. Aku segera meninggalkan minimarket itu menuju penginapan sembari menikmati pemandangan tersisa. Menyambung langkah sedikit di Jalan Kota Lama aku berbelok ke kiri di Jalan Engku Pangeran Anom 2 untuk kemudian tiba di penginapan, The Space Inn. .

Engku Pangeran Anom, siapakah gerangan?

Engku Pangeran Anom adalah seorang bangsawan Terengganu dengan nama lengkap Pengiran Anum Engku Abdul Kadir bin Engku Besar. Beliau adalah seorang yang sangat memahami sejarah Terengganu dan sering menjadi rujukan kesultanan yang pada waktu itu dipimpin oleh Sultan Ahmad.

Aku tiba di penginapan tepat pukul setengah delapan….

Saatnya aku berbasuh, makan malam, melipat jemuran dan merapikan backpack karena esok hari aku akan meninggalkan Kuala Terengganu tepat pukul setengah sepuluh pagi.

Wisma Maidam yang tinggi menjulang di Jalan Sultan Ismail yang digunakan untuk kantor Bank Islam Kuala Terengganu.
Perempatan yang sering kulalui tiap hari selama di Kuala Terengganu.
Umobile Centre (Kedai Peralatan Telekomunikasi) di Jalan Engku Sar. Engku Sar mengacu pada nama ayahanda dari Engku Pengiran Anom yang bernama lengkap Syed Abdullah Al-Idrus. “Sar”adalah sebutan lain dari “Sir”.
Gedung Aneka KAMDAR di Jalan Kota Lama yang digunakan sebagai ASC (Arena Sports Centre) yang merupaka bisnis Sport Venue di Kuala Terengganu.
Tidur wooeey….Sudah jam 11 malam….Besok jalan lageee.

BAS KITē ….Bus Kota Andalan Kuala Terengganu

<—-Kisah Sebelumnya

Usai mencuci celana jeans, t-shirt dan kaos kaki, aku pun berbasuh. Membuat badan segar dan mengusir lusuh. “Masih terlalu dini untuk tidur, lebih baik aku nongkrong di shared-kitchen saja untuk mengisi botol-botol air minumku yang mulai surut”, ideku tetiba muncul.

Mulai turunlah aku ke lantai dua dimana meja resepsionis dan shared-kitchen berada. Sesampainya di sana, tampak keberadaan Mr. Okamoto yang perlahan menyeduh kopi.

Where was you going today, Mr. Okamoto?”, aku mendahului bertanya ketika dia melempar senyum saat aku mengucurkan air kran ke dalam botol-botol minumanku.

Hi Donny, I didn’t go everywhere today. I was tired. I decided to take a rest all day in my room”, dia terkekeh sembari menyereput kopi seduhannya sendiri.

Ohhhhh…..I think you have found a nice day today….Hahahaha. I see you are very fresh now”, aku menyegerakan duduk di hadapannya dan melanjutkan percakapan.

Entah bagaimana mulanya, Mr. Okamoto mengisahkan banyak hal malam itu….Dari kisah menawannya  budaya Okinawa, kenangan minum kopi bersama warga lokal Aceh, perilaku gadis-gadis Jepang di zaman modern, kelucuan seorang muridnya yang berasal dari Yogyakarta, serta kisah suka dukanya berprofesi menjadi guru Bahasa Inggris di ibu kota.

Sedangkan aku menimpali sedikit cerita mengenai petualanganku mengunjungi Jepang tiga tahun silam, menjelajah Terengganu di hari pertama tadi siang hingga  rencanaku menjelajah Timur Tengah beberapa hari dihadapan.

Keistimewan dari percakapan itu adalah teraciknya secangkir kopi oleh Mr. Okamoto untukku.

Beuh….Kopi Arabica itu masih terbayang nikmatinya hingga kini.

—-****—-

Senin pagi itu, aku sengaja bangun sedikit siang. Usai Shalat Subuh, aku kembali tidur dan baru bangun tepat pukul sembilan pagi. Usai berbasuh, aku bersarapan dengan menyesap bubuk oat yang kubawa dari rumah, kusajikan serbuk itu dalam tuangan air panas dan mencampurnya dengan sesendok gula pasir yang ada di dapur penginapan.

Dua puluh menit kemudian aku rampung bersarapan, aku mulai beranjak turun ke lantai satu dan bersiap melanjutkan eksplorasi. Melihat langit, sepertinya hari keduaku di Kuala Terengganu akan sepanas kemarin. Aku melangkah melewati Jalan Engku Pengiran Anom 2 untuk menggapai Jalan Air Jernih yang apabila ditarik lurus ke utara akan mengantarkanku kepada Hentian Bas Majlis Bandaraya Kuala Terengganu.

Terminal bus itu masih saja menjadi sekutuku dalam membedah keindahan Kuala Terengganu. Setidaknya aku sudah tahu harus kemana saja di sepanjang Senin itu.

Oh ya, kembali pada kisah sehari sebelumnya, setiba di terminal bus setelah diantar oleh myBAS dari Bandar Udara Sultan Mahmud, aku meluangkan waktu sekejap untuk merapat ke hentian BAS KITē. Aku sengaja mendokumentasikan rute bus kota andalan warga Kuala Terengganu itu. Keberadaan BAS KITē sendiri sudah kupantau dari Jakarta dua bulan sebelum keberangkatan.

Aku aja naik BAS KITē….Masak kamu engga?
Icip-icip BAS KITē lah….
Inilah rute pertama yang kunaiki.
Kagak naik di rute ini guwe mah….
Nah, Laluan C02 adalah rute terakhir yang kunaiki.

Nah, kalau kamu ke Kuala Terengganu dan ingin menghemat ongkos dalam mengeksplorasi kotanya, maka BAS KITē adalah solusi terbaik. Lha daripada naik taksi kemana-mana….Kan mahal….Ya toh.

Yuk kita intip apa itu BAS KITē?

Menurut hasil percakapanku dengan pengemudi BAS KITē ketika menuju Masjid Kristal, jumlah bus ini hanya ada lima unit di Kuala Terengganu, pengemudinya pun hanya lima orang. Tetapi pada papan rute yang berhasil aku foto, BAS KITē ternyata hanya memiliki empat rute….Hhmmmhh, mungkin satu unitnya berupa bus cadangan….Ah, aku mana tahu, lagian ngapain guwe pikirin yak.

Keunikan bus kota ini terletak pada desainnya. Jika dilihat dari luar maka badan bus kota ini menyerupai arsitektur rumah khas Terengganu. Kaca bus didesain bak jendela lengkung, sedangkan atap bus diberikan sentuhan lisplang berukiran khas. Sedangkan di bagian dalam bus, tempat duduk serta area pembatas antara pengemudi dan penumpang di dominasi oleh kombinasi bahan besi dan kayu penuh ukiran khas Terengganu….Ciamik deh pokoknya.

Bus kota berkapasitas 36 penumpang ini, usaha operasionalnya dimiliki oleh Cas Ligas SDN. BHD yang kantornya berada di Menara PERMINT, menara yang setiap hari berkali-kali aku lewati. Cas Ligas SDN. BHD sendiri adalah bisnis pengangkutan darat dan air di Kuala Terengganu. Kalau di Jakarta mungkin semacam PPD kali yak…..

Untuk bisa menaiki bus kota ini menuju berbagai destinasi wisata maka kamu harus mempersiapkan ongkos berkisar antara 1 hingga 5 Ringgit tergantung dengan jarak. Murah kan?…..

Bus kota yang berangkat paling pagi adalah BAS KITē jurusan Kuala Nerus (arah bandara tetapi tak mampir di bandara, jika kamu ingin menuju ke bandara gunakan saja jasa myBAS). BAS KITē jurusan ini berangkat tepat pukul setengah delapan pagi dan berangkat dengan interval waktu 1,5 sebelum tengah hari dan kemudian berangkat dalam interval 2 jam sekali ketika sudah lewat tengah hari. Bus terakhir berangkat jam setengah lima sore dari Hentian Bas Majlis Bandara Kuala Terengganu.

Sedangkan bus kota yang berangkatnya paling siang adalah BAS KITē jurusan Masjid Kristal. BAS KITē jurusan ini berangkat pertama kali pukul 9:30 pagi dan hanya menyediakan empat trip dalam sehari. Trip terakhir berangkat pukul lima sore dari Hentian Bas Majlis Bandara Kuala Terengganu.

Murah tapi terbatas……Tenang bisa di siasati kok.

Dengang jarak rerata dua jam untuk setiap keberangkatan maka setidaknya aku bisa mengunjungi minimal tiga destinasi dalam rute yang berbeda. “Nikmati saja, ga usah buru-buru…….”, begitulah fikirku menyikapi keterbatasan itu.

Supaya suasana hati tetap happy….Ya, kan?
