|Views from Pasir Mas bridge.|
Saturday, 1 September 2012
I only call it the Pasir Mas bridge. The river is Sungai Kelantan. This bridge links Salor on the south side to Pasir Mas on the north side, and onward to Rantau Panjang. There are many food stalls on both sides of the bridge (more on Salor side). There are many activities both on the river banks and on the river. The river banks are used for agricultural purposes and farmers grow corn (jagung), groundnuts (kacang tanah), pumpkins (labu) and tubers (ubi kayu, ubi keledek, etc), etc. The sand merchants suck river sand (pasir sungai) for the construction industry (buat rumah). Like all bridges, this bridge is also congested during school holidays and festive seasons.
