|(Tired bikers, but still energetic...)|
We didn't have breakfast and there was no hot water even for a hot Nescafe. Started riding after 0800 and thronged the massive early morning traffic jam. Stopped to refuel and fixed Bakar's flat tyre. The mishaps of yesterday’s fall and today”s flat tyre made Bakar temperamental and moody even at a simple joke.
It was a leisure ride to Kampot as the road is good. We arrived early and rested at Riverside View Hotel while waiting for the organizer to fetch and bring us to a muslim retaurant for mee soup lunch.

We checked in a Heng Reak Smey Guest House, booked by the DMK organizer. After a short rest we went for a late lunch of prawns and crabs. The group then took a van to Kep beach to watch the sunset and bought more crabs for dinner later.
|(Catching crabs for dinner...)|
We took a stroll for dinner at Ustaz Sulaiman's house. After a glass of teh tarik, we walked back to our hotel under the moon shadow of 10 Zulhijjah.
