Toilet post#17

This is dedicated to those having to cross states when celebrating Chinese New Year or any family gatherings for that matter. Especially so if you are like me, a Northern lass based in the South. In trips, the most exciting time is planning and going. Heavy traffic, road hogs, temperamental weather changes .. come what may, we will take everything in stride! We are homebound all charged up to be spoilt, pampered and fussed over. Toilet breaks? Gladly. Sungai Perak Rest and Service Area

North Bound
Location : KM 250 of NSE
Section : Northern Region 5
State : Perak

Amenities Provided:-

Toilet,food,fruit stalls,petrol kiosk, mosque, ATM machines, telephones,

All motivation and energy depletes on the journey back. Road hogs, stay clear or at least move to the left. Please. Let’s try not to allow the ‘low batt’ spirit to further plummet towards ‘no batt’. Sadly, no more castle-like stop though at the same area.

South Bound
Location : KM 250 of NSE
Section : Northern Region 5
State : Perak

Nevertheless, similar amenities just in different appearance. Less impressive.

The timing to travel during festive season is crucial. Last year, I brilliantly schemed to start journey late at night. Stalled 'car mountain car ocean' (means impossibly high number of cars) welcomed me. Obviously great minds do think alike. =P

So, when do you think the CNY exodus will peak this year?

Earnestly hope NOT to see you on the road. Wishing all of us a most uneventful smooth safe ride home – both ways!

Note: the other comfy rest stop worth stopping for a break would be here.

So much had changed since the highway came to the picture. I use to remember using the trunk road/petrol station toilet when we balik kampung donkey years ago. The only prob now is, sometimes is it soooo jammed up that the queue for the toilets are horrying!

I like the way you move from toilet to food to toilet to food. I have never come across such clean public toilets in Malaysia. Not even on our way to North. Wonder where my sister-in-law stopped for us to ease ourselves. :P

imbi & itchy, I do miss those trunk road journeys. Those many stops at fruit stalls, small town restaurants and wildlife. Except toilets tend to be a bit too adventurous.

team bsg, wow like that maybe I should insure them?

judy, that's odd. Quite safe to say all the rest areas along the highway are very well maintained. Now, more toilet cubicles have been added. One grip would be occasional distruption to the water supply.

teckiee, believe it.

kopi soh, you have a superb CNY too!

Omigosh! Someone actually did a toilet review. My friend Datin was just telling me she wanted to do the First Malaysian Toilet Blog. I guess you beat her to it. LOL>

Selamat Tahun Tikus! Last round, last round...
