Ali's barely two months old and he's been on taxi rides from Pasir Puteh to Kota Bharu and back on a regular basis. At the end of Ali's stay in Kelantan, after his "bercukur kepala" ceremony Ali made his first really long haul taxi ride. From Pasir Puteh to Seberang Takir airport in Terengganu, all two hours of it Ali travelled with ease in a run down but comfortable vintage Mercedes taxi. Mom, Dad, Grandmom and Nenek Yah were with him all the way to the airport at Seberang Takir. Even made a pit stop for keropok lekor along the way.
Owing to the long CNY holidays, flight tickets to anywhere was scarce, thus the taxi ride to Kuala Terengganu, the sole reason being to catch a seat on a plane back to KL before the long trip home to Miri. All flights to KL from KB has been fully booked weeks ahead!
