After visiting Segari Turtle Sanctuary, it was about time to end our trip and go home. Before we did, we stopped by in Sitiawan for a bowl of cendol (a local dessert with shaved ice, coconut milk, and palm sugar) to cool off the hot day.
From my research, the best cendol you can ever have in Sitiawan is James cendol.
The famous cendol stall is situated right at the entrance to a Hindu temple on Jalan Lumut – within a walking distance from The Store supermarket or Uncle John Cafe.
Unlike the old days, now you can’t spot Uncle James in red bow-tie anymore (used to be his trademark) as the stall is now run by his wife and son.
This was the first time I tried James cendol. The palm sugar and coconut milk was very thick and overall the cendol was awesome and refreshing – though I found it a bit salty.
The price for normal cendol is RM1.50 while cendol with glutinous rice (pulut) is RM1.60. Both J and K loved the one with pulut. Yummy.
A Pleasant Surprise
On the way home from Teluk Intan to Bidor, we were happy to see a huge rainbow. One of the best we had ever seen! Simply awesome.
