KELANTAN : It's Summer Time !

KELANTAN : It's Summer Time !

Nearing the end of February. Next is March.
Should expect a little "atmospheric turbulence" in the following month
due to the changing of seasonal winds, but that usually won't last long before the real " summer " sets in.

But the smell of " summer " is already in the air.
The hot and dry scent. The smell of dry grass and ... errr ... bad drainage too.

Soon, the air will be filled again with the humming sound of Wau Bulan and the APFT fleet .....

and the beach
never so inviting, as it is now ........

A lad and his trade.
A boy selling kites on the sand of Pantai Cahaya Bulan ( PCB ) in Kota Bharu.

Less than two months ago this stretch of sandy terrain was under the waves and the rock
by the boy's side was the point where the sea met the shore ( see photo below for comparison ).

The weather at this part of the Peninsular could, most of the time, be against you.

The Monsoon, unlike the one experienced in the West Coast, is readily gruesome and the heat during the short dry season, could as well be unbearable to some. But knowing the weather pattern very well before embarking on trips to the East Coast, could be rewarding and very enjoyable, provided that you know exactly WHAT to do and WHEN to start.

As for coastal Kelantan, here are my two cents :


    What To Expect ? :
    Hot days & nights, Windy, Brilliant blue skies, Dry & Dusty, 26 C ~ 35 C

    Great For :
    Fishing ( Sea & River ), Kite Flying, Beach & Island Retreat, Outdoors

    Bad For :
    Night Sleep ( concrete houses ), Health ( Thermal shock, Heat Stroke )


    What To Expect ? :
    Hot days Cool Nights, Windy, Blue Skies, Late Evening Thunderstorm, 24 C ~ 32 C

    Great For :
    Tropical fruits, Lazing, Outdoor Cafe, Waterfalls, Beach & Island Retreat

    Bad For :
    Night Fishing at sea


    What To Expect ? :
    Cool days & nights, Strong wind, Cloudy, rainy & gloomy, 22 C ~ 30 C

    Great For :
    Watching the violent monsoon waves, Flood Fiesta, Ubi Rebus & Ikan Budu, Hibernating !

    Bad For :
    Going Seafood ( prices go up ), Outdoors, Beach & Island Retreat ( off -season )
