Strange Names

Along the way home in the bus, at about 4am, I awoke when we were about an hour away from Alor Star and took note of the signboards to determine where we were.

It struck me that some of the towns up north have really weird names and I have passed these towns countless of times on our journeys down south. Translated literally:

Kota Sarang Semut - Ant Nest District
Arang Batu - Charcoal
Gurun - Desert

And I used to think Malaysia did not have interesting names.

Don't forget Batang Berjuntai, Lumut, Batu Berendam and Gong Badak.
