Go, Go, Go-lok! by GOLOK King James Ng Kun Tek

EVER SINCE I GOT THE 'GOLOK KING' TITLE FROM DATO KEE HUA CHEE, SHOPPING IN GOLOK IS INCOMPLETE WITHOUT MY GUIDANCE AND CONSULTATION.

I HAD BEEN SO WELL KNOWN TO BE CALLED AS GOLOK KING AS I APPEAR IN DATO KEE'S BLOG EVERY YEAR WITHOUT FAIL.

NOT ONLY THAT, I WAS ALSO APPEARED IN ARCHIVES OF THE STAR NEWS PAPER DATED MARCH 30TH, 2011 THAT A MAT SALLEH CONTACTED ME TO HELP HIM ON HIS ASSIGNMENT AND DOCUMENTARY ON THIS SMALL TOWN IN SOUNTERN THAILAND.

KOMPLEKS ICQS RANTAU PANJANG WHICH STAND FOR IMIGRESEN, CUSTOM, QUARANTINE, SECURITY
 
RANTAU PANJANG TOWN, WHICH LOCATED JUST OPPOSITE OF GOLOK. ALL YOU NEED IS JUST TO CROSS THE RIVER!

THIS IS SOMETHING NEW TO ME. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY THIS IS WHERE I USED TO PARK MY CAR. NOW 3 PARKING LOTS WASTED JUST LIKE THAT

RANTAU PANJANG SMALL TOWN, IN A HOT SUNNY DAY AS USUAL

STANDING IN RANTAU PANJANG, MALAYSIA LOOKING AT GOLOK, THAILAND

SIMPLE WOODEN PLATFORM, FOR BOAT RIDING PURPOSE
THERE ARE FEW PENGKALAN LIKE THIS SUCH AS PENGKALAN TOK AWANG, TOK KASIM... AND MANY
VERY OBVIOUS NOW NO MORE FLOOD. IF NOT I WON'T BE STANDING HERE

SHOPS IN RANTAU PANJANG CLOSED RATHER EARLY


AS USUAL, DO SOME SHOPPING IN RANTAU PANJANG FIRST BEFORE GOING TO THE OTHER SIDE

THIS SCENERY LOOK SO FAMILIAR THAT I FEEL LIKE GOING BCK HOME
TYPICAL BOAT, BUT THEY GOT ANOTHER TYPE USING MAN-POWER BY PADDLING
BOAT FARE COST ONLY RM1
LOOK AT THE RUBBISH ON THE TREE, IT'S THE EVIDENCE OF THE HEIGHT OF WATER LEVEL DURING FLOOD
DON'T DO THIS AT HOME, IT'S ILLEGAL. USE PROPER WAY INSTEAD!
NOW STANDING IN GOLOK, THAILAND LOOKING AT RANTAU PANJANG, MALAYSIA
STREET IN GOLOK
RIDING IN MOTOR TAXI THAT COST FOR RM3, ANYWHERE YOU WANT TO GO WITHIN GOLOK.
THIS EXPLAINS WHY MEN LOVE THAILAND
SECOND REASON WHY MEN LOVE THAILAND
S.W.A.T?

THIRD REASON WHY MEN LOVE THAILAND
THAI MUSLIM AND KELANTAN MALAY LOOK FAIRER THAN ME...
BARGAINING AND NEGOTIATING IS A MUST. IF YOU CAN'T SPEAK THAI, MALAY AND SIMPLE ENGLISH WILL ALSO DO AS WELL
BUNDLE CLOTHING, AS CHEAP AS RM2 PER PIECE
ENGLISH AND MALAY WORDS ARE MEANT FOR MALAYSIAN
THIS MARKET IS JUST LOCATED BESIDE THE RAILWAY TRACK
IF YOU WANNA COME, TELL THE MOTOR TAXI 'TALAD ROTFAI' WILL DO
A PRIMARY SCHOOL. I USE TO PLAY BASKETBALL WITH MY FELLA THAI FRIENDS EVERY EVENING AFTER WORK!
A FAMOUS PLACE TO GET CASHEW NUTS, MAMA MEE. IF YOU ARE TYPICAL MALAYSIAN
THIS IS THE STREET
I GUESS GOLOK IS DOING BETTER THAN RANTAU PANJANG IN TERM OF ECONOMY AND DEVELOPMENT

A FAMOUS RESTAURANT THAT MALAYSIAN CHINESE LIKE TO HANG AROUND

ANOTHER FAMOUS RESTAURANT. ORANGE RESTAURANT AKA 'RAAN SISOM' (RAAN=SHOP)
NEVER MISSED TO HAVE SUGAR CANE DRINK WITH THAI FOOD, OUR REUNION DINNER EVERY YEAR AS USUAL
BAA MEE HENG. DRY KOLO MEE

I LOVE FRIED RICE. ESPECIALLY THAI FRIED RICE!
KOW KA MOO. PORK LEG RICE

DROOLING... NOM NOM NOM
THE FAMOUS 'TORUM' AS ADDRESSED BY THE LOCAL, IS A FOOD STREET MARKET
THE ONE AND ONLY MOST FAMOUS TONG SHUI
AND TELL YOU WHAT, THIS IS THE FRIED CHICKEN EVERONE MUST EAT. DON'T ASK ME WHY, JUST TRY!
SEXY FLAME RED
THERE ARE REDS BESIDE RED

IT REMINDS ME CNY IS AROUND THE CORNER

KUEY TEOW LEA AKA BOAT NOODLE
I ADMIT I HAVE A LOT OF THAI FRIENDS IN GOLOK BUT NOT HER. LOOK AT HER EXPRESSION, NO WONDER THEY SAY THAILAND IS THE LAND OF SMILE

WE WENT BACK KOTA BHARU AFTER SUNSET SINCE WE ARE GOOD BOY. OF COURSE GOLOK IS ALSO FAMOUS IN NIGHTLIFE BESIDES SHOPPING JUST LIKE OTHER THAILAND BORDERS DO. I WILL PROBABLY SHARE WITH YOU MORE ABOUT NIGHTLIFE IN GOLOK DURING MY NEXT VISIT. STAY TUNED!
