Pulau Pangkor - Day 3

Last day in Pulau Pangkor. 
We took that cute pink mini bus to tour the island.
The driver, a very friendly old chinese guy was like a professional tourist guide, explaining to us almost every detail about the island.  
He brought us to a few interesting places and he talked almost non-stop about this small island.

The Dutch Fort. 

The boys at the ruins of the Dutch Fort 

The Galery

 This coral/stone that we were holding is quite heavy and yet it FLOATS in the water. 
People used to bathe using the water soaked with this coral/stone to cure illness because it is believed to have healing powers.

The three beautiful princesses from Majapahit.
Kembar kot..not sure.

Batu bersurat 1743. 
There is a drawing of a tiger and some writtings on it. 
It is believed that the drawing tells a story of a tiger that mauled and killed the son of a Dutch personnel.

Mini Great Wall of China

We also stopped by at the boat building factory, satay factory, china town and other places 
tapi tak sempat ambik gambar.

But as usual, we enjoyed the beach more than anything else.
It is quite lively, not to crowded, a lot of things to observe and
it is easy to get carried away with lots of thoughts here.

Somehow when I am at the beach,
a lot of things in my mind became disentangled and almost everything seemed crystal clear.
