Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Teluk Champedak, Kuantan (State Of Pahang)

Poem By john tiong chunghoo

teluk champedak
i cross the bridge between
ape and man

(Teluk is the Malay word for Bay. On a half km bridge that links
two parts of the champedak beach, I saw a mother monkey carry its child affectionately in its bossom like a human being. A few other monkeys joined in her fun, one even cuddling the young monkey as its mother gave it some space for affection. The monkeys are really just an IQ away from men. A man nearby said they are actually men's ancestors)

teluk champedak bridge
the monkeys too
crossing the bridge

Champedak boulders
i take a deep breath
and muse about Yoga

At Teluk Champedak are many huge boulders some shaped like a bald head. Perfect place for yoga lovers.

Teluk Champedak
a 9kg stingray shores up
the angler's night

Anglers come here for stingrays in the night. They stick their fishing lines on the beach. When they move, they know a stingray is on the hook. I saw a nine kg stingray on the beach panting for breath two nights ago.
