步行记:高渊走到甘文丁下篇 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting Part 2

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting
第二天,出发!

第二天,老天对我们比较温柔,一大清早就下起雨来,把温度降低不少。原本是计划要早上七点起床的,最后我们还是托了半小时,下雨天好睡嘛。哈哈!我们梳洗完毕后,和Bernard朋友的家来一张合照,过后我们就出门吃早餐了。

The sky treated us nicely during our second day of the foot travelling. It rained early in the morning and this has brought down the temperature quite a lot. Originally, our plan was to wake up at 7 AM but we have dragged it until 7.30 AM. Well, it was nice to sleep in the rainy day..haha.. We brushed our teeth and washed our face and then we took a photo with Bernard's friend's house before we went for our breakfast.

吃早餐之前,先来为这间回教堂拍张照!这间回教堂就在Bernard朋友家的对面而已,是目前收集到的第四间回教堂,名为Masjid Bagan Serai。

This is the mosque opposite if Bernard's friend's house and it was the fourth mosque in my collection. The mosque was named after the town, Bagan Serai.

我们到国进享用早餐。我注意到国进有个很特别的地方,就是里面都被各式各样的布条包围起来。国进主打的是肉骨茶面和粿條汤(不晓得有没有其他食物),点餐时老板会问你要黑汤还是白汤。黑汤指的是肉骨茶面,而白汤就是粿條汤啦。

We went to try out this local's favourite noodle soup. When we took the order, the hawker asked us whether we want black soup or white soup. Black soup is actually the Bak Kut Teh noodle soup and the white soup is the normal Koay Teow Th'ng. There is one thing special about this shop, which they decorated their shop with lots of banner. I found myself surrounded by banners when we dine in at there.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

我们三人都点了黑汤的。虽说是肉骨茶面,但是汤底却没有肉骨,吃起来比较像是药材面。昨天在古楼吃的云吞面和今天的肉骨茶面都是Bernard朋友请客的,真的是太感谢啦!

All of us ordered the black noodle soup. Despite the name was Bak Kut Teh noodle soup, yet there was no Bak Kut found in the soup, it tasted more like a herbal soup to me. Once again, I want to thank Bernard's friends for treating us this breakfast and yesterday's dinner as well. Really thanks a lot!

吃过早餐后,我们到便利店购买面包。这些面包是我们的午餐,因为害怕途中如果没有咖啡店的话我们就没有午餐吃了。过后,Bernard的朋友把我们载到巴眼色海前往太平的大路。我们和他道别后就开始我们的旅程了。这时是早上九点,当时不热,走起来也不怎么吃力。沿途都没有美景,所以一路都很闷,因此也提不起劲拍照,都是随便拍拍的。

We went to buy some bread after we had our breakfast. These bread will be our lunch as we scared that we might not be able to find any coffee shop along the way. Then, Bernard's friend dropped us at the highway in Bagan Serai that was connected to Taiping. Our second day journey began from there. We started walking at 9 AM and the weather at that time was not hot. Along the way, there was no beautiful scene to be seen and it was really boring. I have no mood to shoot so I just simply snapped some photos along the way.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

不久后,我们看见了路旁有个卖西瓜的档口。虽然不清楚西瓜市价如何,但是一粒RM2.50对我而言不贵。当时真的有想买一粒来尝尝的冲动,不过最后还是把这股冲动给忍住了。

Soon, we saw a watermelon stall at the roadside. Though I don't know how much is the market price of a watermelon, but RM2.50 per watermelon was quite cheap for me. I felt like buying one to try but in the end I just passed through it and snapped a photo of it.

当天的第二间回教堂,Masjid Al-Athar。

The second mosque of second day, Masjid Al-Athar.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

这是在回教堂旁边的建筑,也是有个葱头的,但应该不是回教堂。建筑物旁边是回教徒的坟墓,所以这间建筑物应该是建来看管坟场的吧?

This is the building next to the mosque. There is an onion head above the building but it doesn't look like a mosque to me. Beside the building is the Muslim's graveyard, so my guess was this building was built to take care of the graveyard.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

当天看见的第一个路牌,太平还有三十一公里啊!超远的!不过经过昨天的小讨论,我们决定不要走到太平了,走到甘文丁就好,然后等待我的朋友来迎接我们。

This was the first road sign we saw on the second day and Taiping was still 31 KM to go! It was so far! However, yesterday before we slept, we have discussed that we will walk until we reach Kamunting instead of Taiping. Then we will wait at Kamunting for my friend to fetch us.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

途中看见这个风扇。不对不对,应该是叫风车才对。。哈哈。。这家主人还真的是很会废物利用呢!

Saw this fan along the way. Err, or I should call it windmill instead..haha.. This house owner was really good in reused the unwanted things!

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

这是我们看到的第二个路牌。看见它时我有点傻眼了,怀疑是不是我看错了。我查回之前拍的路牌,没错啊,太平还有三十一公里,而怡保也距离一百零五公里。无奈,只好接受这个事实了,走了好像和没走一样,可是明明就感觉已经走了很久!

This is the second signboard we saw. I was a bit shocked when I saw the numbers on the board. I checked back with the signboard photo I snapped earlier and yes, the number was exactly the same as what was written on this board! Really, I felt like that I wasn't moving any further at all but at the same time I felt like I have been walking for so long! =(

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

第三间回教堂,Masjid Al-Ridzuan。

The third mosque, Masjid Al-Ridzuan.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

看见这间学校时心里乐了一下。学校的缩写SABAR就是马来语的“忍”。当时就有这样的想法,会不会是这里的学生都是很调皮的,所以每位老师都必须“忍”!哈哈~

I felt funny when I saw this school. The short form of this school's name, SABAR means "be patient" in Malay language. That moment I have this thinking in my mind, maybe the students in this school were all very naughty so the teachers have to "be patient"! haha~

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

后来看见了这座桥,原本想要跨越它的,但又不知会通往哪里,也不晓得安不安全,所以最后我们还是走回大路了。

Then we saw this bridge. At first I wanted to cross this bridge but then we don't know where it will lead to and it might be dangerous to walk on. So, at last we walked back to the highway.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

这座桥其实是连接Sg. Kurau两岸的。走在大路时看见有摩多车经过这座桥,所以是还有人在使用的。

This bridge connected both the river banks of Sg. Kurau. We saw that there was a motorbike passing through the bridge so it was actually safe to walk on it.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

当天的天气还蛮凉爽的,吹来的风也凉凉的,一路上每隔不远都有树木可以遮荫,所以还算能轻松步行。不过,这美好的一切只持续了两小时。早上十一点过后天气开始变热了,风也不凉了,步行开始变得有点吃力。其实这一路上我们看见的尽是永无止尽的道路,都没有什么特别的东西或是美景可以看,而我们能做的也只有走路和休息,超闷的!

The weather on that day was quite nice and the wind was cold. There were trees along the way so we can hide under the tree's shadow from time to time. However, all these nice conditions last for two hours only. After 11 AM, the sun started to show himself and the wind weren't cold anymore and the walking become harder. Another demotivating thing was that there weren't any nice view or interesting things to see along the way. All we can do were just walked and rested. It was quite boring actually!

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

在路旁的油棕园看见这个蓄水池(应该是蓄水池没错吧?),这些水是要供应给油棕的吗?

Saw this water tank (or something else?) in the palm plantation at the roadside. Was the water gonna supplied to the palm tree?

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

走了两小时半,我们来到了Semanggol小市镇。市镇随着大路两旁建立,是个很小很小的区域,我们一下子就跨越了。

After 2.5 hours of walking, we came to the Semanggol town. It was a really small town that was built along the highway and we crossed it in no time.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

跨过市镇后,我们看见了第三个路牌。离太平还剩二十二公里,也就是说我们在两小时半内走了九公里,一公里大约要走十五分钟。现在的我开始感觉饿了,早餐应该都被消化了吧。

We saw the third signboard after we passed through the small town. It was still 22 KM to reach Taiping which mean that we have walked for 9 KM within this 2.5 hours. By calculation, we used around 15 minutes to walk a 1 KM distance. At this point, I started to feel hungry already.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

第四间回教堂,名字不详。

The fourth mosque, don't know the name though.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

中午十二点,我们正好经过一间Caltex油站。我们决定在这里休息半小时并享用我们的午餐。

We passed through this Caltex petrol station at 12 PM sharp and we have decided to rest for half an hour and have our lunch at there.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

这就是我的午餐啦!

This was my lunch!

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

我们到油站里各买了一瓶Red Bull补充体力。这是我第一次喝Red Bull呢!第一口喝下去的时候确实有突然精神起来的感觉,不过过后就没有了。话说,Red Bull的味道很像糖果,完全不是我想象中的那样,不过还蛮好喝的。

We bought a Red Bull in the petrol station to energize ourselves. This was my first time drinking Red Bull. I felt refreshed the first moment I drank it but just for that moment only. By the way, Red Bull tasted like candy, not as how I thought it would tasted like.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

休息过后我们继续步行。这个路牌告诉我们说其实我们只走了一公里而已。与昨天相比,今天的肩膀感觉不怎么压力了,应该是习惯了,要不然就是麻木了。今天主要面对的问题是双脚的负担,其实我在油站休息时发现我已经走到脚都脱皮流血了。不过流血不算什么,比较难挨的是每走一步路都要承受的疼痛,这时的我真的是在靠着毅力在走着,精神上如果有犹豫的话真的会很难走下去的。

We continued our walked after the rest. We saw this signboard and it told us that we have actually walked for 1 KM only. Compared to yesterday, the pressure on my shoulders were not as much. Perhaps I have get used to the pressure already or maybe my shoulders were numb already. The main problem we were facing on the second day was our legs' pain. When we rested at the petrol station, I noticed that my leg was bleeding already yet this was nothing compared to the pain I have to endure for each step I took. I was relying on my resolve to keep myself moving. If the mind was hesitated, it was really hard to keep on walking.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

一路上都有看见稻田不过都没有进去拍摄。看见这个稻田有个比较大的入口处,所以就进去拍一张了。

Paddy field were seen along the way but I didn't went in to shoot. Then I saw this paddy field with a bigger entrance and so I went in and snapped a photo of it.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

终于啊!我们抵达Kampung Dew了!这是我们计划中的第一个小站,我们抵达时间是下午一点十五分,计划是要中午十二点就抵达的。不过算起来我们也算是走得蛮快的了,因为我们比计划迟了两小时出发,所以按理来说是要下午两点才抵达Kampung Dew的。

Finally, we have reached Kampung Dew, which was the first check point in our plan! According to the plan, we have to reach at 12 PM but we reached at 1.15 PM instead. Though, we were considered fast already because we were two hours delayed when we departed from Bagan Serai, so supposedly we will reach Kampung Dew at 2 PM.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

第五间回教堂,也就是最后一间了(之后在甘文丁和太平都没拍到回教堂)。这间回教堂是在Kampung Dew里的,名为Masjid Jame' Kampung Dew。

The fifth mosque and the last one as well (I didn't managed to take any photo in Kamunting and Taiping). This mosque was located inside Kampung Dew and it's called Masjid Jame' Kampung Dew.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

我们在Kampung Dew稍微休息一会儿,之前从油站一路走来都没看见小亭或巴士站,所以没休息到。我们休息的地方是Kampung Dew的森林检查局,但已经被荒废了。Masjid Jame' Kampung Dew就在它的旁边而已。

We rest for a while in Kampung Dew. We didn't manage to rest along the way from the petrol station until Kampung Dew as we cant find any bus stop along the way. The place we rested was the Kampung Dew Forest Inspectorate and it was being abandoned. Th mosque we saw earlier was just next to it.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

看见这个再见感谢路牌时,心里有种说不出的喜悦。我们走了那么久,终于要离开吉辇县了!话说,单单一个县我们就花了两天时间,不简单啊!

Well, it was time to say good bye to Kerian county after a very long time of walking! By the way, we have to spend two days just to cross a county, it wasn't an easy task at all!

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

离开吉辇县不久我们来到了Sg. Sepatang。这里可是有萤火虫可以看的哦!之前忘了说,其实Kampung Dew出名的就是萤火虫啦。

Soon after leaving the Kerian county, we came to a river, Sg. Sepatang. Fireflies can be seen at here and it was the highlight of Kampung Dew.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

河的旁边有间木炭场,第一次看见木炭场是在十八丁,这是第二个。

There was a charcoal factory beside the river. The first time I saw a charcoal factory was at Sepatang and this was my second.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

当当!还有一公里就能抵达甘文丁入口了,而且在前方还能看见南北大道!兴奋!

Tada! In just another 1 KM and we will reach the entrance into Kamunting and we will see the North-South Expressway before that! Feeling excited!

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

抵达甘文丁入口前会先经过一个天桥。由于一时兴奋,所以不知觉的就走快了,后来才意识到右脚有扭到的感觉,不过之后慢走就没事了。

Before reaching the Kamunting's entrance, we must first passed through a flyover. I was getting really excited that moment and I walked a bit faster. It was soon that I realised my right leg was feeling twisted but it was back to normal when I walked slowly afterwards.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

我们的第一个南北大道!这是从天桥上拍下来的。按照原定计划走到适耕庄的话我们一路会看见两三个南北大道,不过我们只走到甘文丁就退缩了,所以能看见一个南北大道真的是很幸运了!

This was our first North-South Expressway! The shot was taken from the flyover. According to the original plan, which we walked to Sekinchan, we will see two to three North-South Expressway along the way. However, our journey ended at Kamunting, so we were really lucky to be able to see just one North-South Expressway!

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

前面那个弯就是弯进甘文丁的入口啦。话说,我之后在太平一直都看到Spritzer的牌子,想知道太平的市场是被Spritzer垄断了吗?

The junction ahead was the way that turn into Kamunting. By the way, when I reached Taiping later, I have seen this Spritzer board all over the place. Was the market in Taiping being manipulated by Spritzer?

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

转个弯我们看见了路牌,上面写着还有六公里就能抵达甘文丁了!以我们目前的速度看来,还需要一小时半才能到达甘文丁。

We turned left into the entrance and soon we saw this signboard. It was written that there was still 6 KM to reach Kamunting. With our current walking speed, we still need 1.5 hours to reach Kamunting.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

走了二十分钟,开始觉得需要休息了。天气突然转变,变得和第一天一样热了。我们看见这个东炎店,二话不说就走进去坐下休息。当时东炎店还没营业,所以就只有我们两人。

We walked for about 20 minutes and we feel like we need to rest already. The weather suddenly turned really hot, just like how it was during the first day. We saw this Tomyam shop and we went in for a break. The shop was not opened for business yet so there were only two of us at that time.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

在东炎店里休息了一段时间后,我们继续步行。前往甘文丁的道路两旁都是树,这里就没有感觉很热了。

After a short rest at the Tomyam shop, we continued our walk. The road towards Kamunting were planted with trees at both side. It wasn't that hot anymore.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

我们在路边看见一个饮料档口。原本一包饮料是需要RM2的,小贩看见我们走得那么辛苦说算我们RM1就好了。于是,我和Bernard各买了一包甘蔗水。爽啊!

We saw a beverage stall at the roadside. One pack of drink will costs us RM2 but the hawker sympathized us for walking so long so she sold us the drink for RM1 per pack. We bought a sugarcane drink each and it was really nice to have a cold drink under the hot weather!

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

下午三点四十五分,我们抵达甘文丁了!这一趟路程我们一共走了二十三公里,耗了七小时。

And finally, we reached Kamunting at 3.45 PM! We have walked about 23 KM for this trip and have spent about 7 hours.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

我们到甘文丁的宜康省等待我的朋友,雪铃。在宜康省里等待的当儿,室内的冷气把我的汗都吹干了。过后我发现我的手臂开始出盐,整只手臂就像是起了白色斑点似的。

We waited for my friend, Sherlyn at Kamunting Econsave. While waiting, the air-con in the mall has dried up my sweats and salt precipitate started to form on my both arms and it look just like my arms were covered with lots of white dots.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

雪铃载我们到太平百龄享用晚餐。我好像每次来太平时都会到这里用餐的。。哈哈。。吃过晚餐,我们到雪铃家休息。当晚,不幸的事发生了,Bernard生病了!刚开始时只有发冷,后来发烧,最后肚子变得很不舒服,一整晚都往厕所跑。

Sherlyn fetched us to have our dinner in Taiping. After having our dinner, we went to Sherlyn house to rest. That night, a misfortune has fall upon my partner. Bernard was sick! He felt cold at first and then he was having a fever. Then he was having a stomachache and has been visiting the toilet the whole night long.

隔天 The Next Day

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

原本以为吃了药,流了汗,隔天就会好起来的,没想到病情却更加严重了!Bernard已经病到连说话的力气都快没了。虽然很不甘,但是没办法了,只好取消我们的适耕庄之旅,搭巴士返回槟城了。

At first I thought that after eating some medicine and having sweated a lot, Bernard will get better the next day. Who knows, his illness was getting worse! He was sick until he can barely talk to me. Though unwillingly, we have to cancel the trip to Sekinchan and went back to Penang by bus.

高渊走到甘文丁 From Nibong Tebal to Kamunting

虽然才过了两天我们就打退堂鼓,不过却有点小满足,因为这两天的旅程让我学到了很多,也让我了解到自己想要的其实是些什么。其实我的最初目的是想要挑战自己的极限,想要看看自己到底能走多远。经过这两天的步行我发现到这样走其实很浪费时间,我想要在旅途中拍摄一些值得留念的照片,不过这趟旅程却没有。可能在未来的某一天我还会踏上这趟旅程,毕竟我还没把他走完,不过这也需要相当大的决心和勇气!加油!

Though we have to give up this trip just after two days of walking, but I was a little bit satisfied actually. I have learnt many lessons from this trip and starting to understand what I really want. My main objective for this trip was to challenge my own limit as to see how far I can really walk. After I have walked for this two days, I realised that it was actually a waste of time as I would really like to take some nice photo along the way, but there wasn't any for this trip. Maybe one day in the future I will walk on this journey again as I haven't finished it this time. Though, this will required a big amount of courage and determination. All the best!

  1. 其实眼睛摄下的记忆才是最大的礼物,不一定要把所见所闻分享出来,鼓励他人亲身体验才是最棒的。

    1. 赞同!一直都顾着拍摄确实很难完全投入其中,正考虑着要换个方式出发了。这趟旅程后我发现我并没有做到我真正想要的,而我其实也不晓得自己想要什么,总觉得没有满足感吧。是时候要思考一下了,不应该盲目步行。谢谢你,Jazz!
