Paka in Trengganu state is popular as this is where Petronas (our national oil & gas company) has its refineries. The refineries have helped in building the economy in this coastal village. Recently I had the opportunity to visit Paka for work purpose.
This is a photo that I took about 8am in the morning on the beach of Paka. The beach has an ethereal feel to it, with the mist still lingering at the mountain range across from where this photo was taken. It was a public holiday in celebration of Sultan Trengganu's Birthday and still early in the morning. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was a chilling morning as it rained throughout the night. This combination of scene and temperature gave me a very calming feeling. As such I didn't feel lousy that I have to work on that day although it is a public holiday in the state of Trengganu! Hope to return to Paka again!
