We reached Padang at about evening and end up requesting the driver to bring us somewhere to enjoy seafood dinner with sunset view.
Padang Beach is beautiful with sunset
Lovely view on our first night in Padang.
Malim Kundang is a legend of poor man who left parent to seek opportunity else where and he end up married a rich man daughter. He came back to his hometown by ship with his rich and beautiful wife. The parent was very happy to hear his coming and the poor old parent went by the ship with Malim Kundang's favourite food 'smoke banana'. Malim Kundang is a bad son. He pretended not to know his poor parent and refused to acknowledge him.
Mother was very upset so pray him to be cursed. He end up become stone together with the ship.
Is this the true one?
I am not sure. It look like the original rock instead of man made though!
On the way to airport we pass through the 'Siti Nurbaya's Bridge' and this come with another legend too. Like my driver said, Bukit Tinggi and Padang is full with legends.
We pass through a very small China Town too.
Dad insist on taking photo at Padang beach for last time before we go to airport.
My next post will be on what I ate in Bukit Tinggi - Padang trip.
