Lo and behold, half of the year has flown by and the month of June has arrived. With it, are the tiny bouts of anxiety that hit us every time we glance at our calendar and think to ourselves, “What the hell have I accomplished this month?” It’s never too late to start working on your future though, be it a job offer you’re chasing or a college application you’ve yet to send out (girl, we know the struggle). But if your vision includes taking a chill pill and diving head first into a mini-vacation, then we’re happy to report that we have just the right prescription for you.
GRIND IT REAL GOOD: GET THAT CAFFEINE HIGH IN KEMAMAN
Nothing beats home-cooked food, except maybe restaurant-prepped meals that evoke the warmness and nostalgia for home-cooked foods, and that’s exactly what you’re promised in the sleepy, coastal town of Kemaman.
You’ll be welcomed with an abundance of food, no matter your estimated time of arrival. If you’re there and the sun had not set, grab a pick-me-up from the friendly neighbourhood coffee shop, Hai Peng Kopitiam. In a state where tourist attractions are synonymous with our favourite food spots, this nostalgic nook often rank high on tourists’ must-visits. Our usual order: The classic Hai Peng Coffee, toast with kaya and butter and because we totally have no self-control, the Nasi Lemak bungkus (you know it’s the best kind too).
