Pulau Ketam – The Fishing Village (Part 2)

10 Feb

there is a fried ice-cream stall in Pulau Ketam..

there are four flavours to choose..

the ice-cream was pre-wrapped within the flour..

and fried in the hot oil..

the fried ice-cream is ready once the flour turned into golden-brown colour..

the vanilla flavour..

fabulous..  the outer layer is hot, whereas the ice-cream inside is icy-cold..  the outer layer taste like doughnut..  :)

one of the attractions here is the “floating houses”..

these houses are built on long wooden stilts..  suspended about 1 to 10 metre above the sea level..

majority of the residents here are Chinese..

inside the village, the only transportation is bicycle..  ^_^

some of the houses here are connected with the cemented road.. all these structures are “floated” from the ground/swamp..  :)
