We didn't jog as we usually did on our previous holidays in part because I thought of my double-standardness, "I don't constantly exercise at home, why should I, here?". I should, though, exercise regularly to alleviate a few problems that have started to worry me like feeling lethargic, having stiff limbs and slow heart rhythm. Being a PE teacher does a little bit of wonder because it makes me move a lot, thanks to my forgetfulness.
There are three routes from KL to Kenyir: KL-Gua Musang-Kenyir, KL-Jabor-Kuala Berang-Kenyir and KL-Coastal Highway. Using the gps (so ever-helpful and useful), we took the never-taken KL-Gua Musang-Kenyir route. We drove past the Gua Musang town towards Kota Bharu until a half-hour later, we reached the exit to Felda Aring, on the right. More than half of this plantation road is in bad condition that I don't recommend you driving at night for fear of having your vehicles send to the workshops or you to the hospitals. Fortunately, the Terengganu road condition is very good which looks more like a highway and it was quiet. It took us 2 hours to reach Pengkalan Gawi, Kenyir from the Aring exit. This amount of time included a few stops along the highway to view the Lake and a half-an-hour stop at the small Kuala Ketiar Elephant Sanctuary.
