The making of Rojak by Angsoka pool side café
Rojak is the ubiquitous Asian salad. The sauce is robust and pungent from the excessive prawn paste added, deliberately tossed with chopped peanuts version, slightly diluted. The bite-sized ingredients thrown into the ensemble include cuttlefish, crispy prawn fritters, water convolvulus, turnip, cucumber and chopped pineapples.
Leaning tower of Teluk Intan
The leaning tower was built on 1885, the tower is slanted leftward, same as the world-famous leaning tower of Pisa, Italy. The purpose was to store water for the locals during the drought season in case of fire. The clock on the tower was also used to keep time. The reasons why the tower leans are the soft ground on which it was built, as well as the weight of the water in the water tank. From the outside, it was seen as eight floors but in fact it is only 3 floors. At night it was lighted with multi-colors.
