Welcoming the Sunrise at Teluk Chempedak Beach, Kuantan

I love watching the sunrise, although there are only a few places to admire the sunrise in my hometown, and Teluk Chempedak is the place I usually go to do this.

Teluk Chempedak is a famous beach in Kuantan, Pahang. It is a popular place among the locals for some fun and relaxation. Most of the people from other places who visit Kuantan will pay a visit to Teluk Chempedak too. There are many things to do at the beach such as picnicking, kite flying, water sports and swimming. Teluk Chempedak is also known as a famous spot to watch the sunrise.

Teluk Chempedak is just about a 10- to 15-minute drive from my house. It has become the regular place I go to for admiring the sunrise because it is near my house and the beach is the place where I love to hang out. I have been to Teluk Chempedak for the sunrise a few times. To be able to catch the sunrise, I must be at the beach before 6.30 in the morning. Usually, I am such a lazy girl who refuse to wake up and leave my comfortable bed too early. But for the chance of welcoming a beautiful sunrise, I always set the alarm the day before and wake up immediately when the clock rings.

Sitting on the sandy beach and waiting for the sun to rise is such an amazing moment. I like how the sea breeze blows on my face gently. Once a while, I can hear birds chirping. I like to see how the sky changes its colors when the sun rises. It is stunning especially when the weather is good and the sky is clear that day.

Here are some of the sunrise photos which I took in three different days.

Welcoming the sunrise is definitely a great way to kick start a brand new day!

    Solo Biking Routes: Ubud in Bali, Indonesia

    Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 3

    “Let me tell you about my life turning blue”. Those were the first words the guy on the bench said as he sat down beside me whilst I was eating my lunch. Usually, I prefer to eat alone but there was something about this opening sentence which really intrigued me; so I told him “Sure buddy, go ahead. Tell me about your life in blue”.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
