It was hot and really humid if you were inside the house but outside, it was cooler with wind blowing from the sea.
The town Tumpat was once thriving but not anymore. Old shophouses still stand and a few new buildings came up but tourists just bypass the town to go to the famous shopping center of Pengkalan Kubor. The town doesn't change much in more than 20 years I have known this place. My children love to hear their father's growing up stories and they really asked a lot of questions.
