Today is the start of our 15-day Kembara. The 4-Nation Ride will cover Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. And once we enter Laos we will ride to Boten, the border of China, insya-Allah...
At 07:30 ten motorbikes started riding from Sg. Buluh R&R heading towards north. First refueling was at R&R Simpang Pulai then we rode direct to Changlun for our second refueling.

Tuan Shawal, the leader of the group had to detour at Juru to settle some urgent work-related issues. While waiting for the chief, the rest settled insurance and money exchange matters at our favorite Kedai Kopi.
We had lunch at Warong Kambing Bakar then performed our prayers at Masjid Ihya' Ulumuddin Changlun. It was already late when we crossed the Malaysia Thailand border at Bukit Kayu Hitam.
We reached Surat Thani, also known as ‘City of Good People’ around 21:30 and had our dinner at a Muslim Restaurant.
We checked in Princess Park Hotel for the night.
