Dungun - My Hometown

Heading straight down to kuala from Sura Gate

Kuala Dungun
The blue building - Jong Guling went there to make a passport. I had told him he needed one if he want to travel to Kuantan. The Immigration staff there laughed so hard Dungun started to shake. Jong Guling came after me and I ran like I had never ran before.

At the end of this road is Sekolah Llaki Dungun - my primary school. It's called different now.

A lone guy walking as if he owns the town. I have a strong feeling he does.

7km coastal drive all the way up to UiTM - where the road ends at the tip. The beach is very clean. Here's to you my Dungun folks!

Bergen, UiTM Dungun!!! I visited the place in late seventies and that's telling my age. The nights were so cold - and i thought it was the coldest place on earth - couldnt sleep.

KamalMusa: Yes, it's very clean. Close to European standard.

Kak Teh: That must be the old campus (Sura Gate). They've moved to Sura Hujung - at the end of the coastal drive right until Bukit Bauk. Yes, Dungun can get pretty cold during the monsoon. I've got some pictures of the area where Ku Keng used to live. Was Abang Wan in Dungun too at that time?

They've removed the houses along the road facing Kelab Kerajaan. Padang Dewan now is a dataran. But they've kept intact the indoor badminton court. It's a nice town now Dungun is.

Oh really? No, masa tu tak kenal pun lagi, maka tak cinta. But after we got married we went visiting some relatives there whose names I have forgotten. But, yes, I do remember Dungun. Thanks for info on the latest.

Kak Teh: You're welcome, ma'am.

Kama At-Tarawis: My pleasure, ma'am.

Fauziah Ismail: You have the eye photograher's eyes.

F: Go there for holiday. It's not a commercial destination and it's peaceful. There are a couple of good chalets built facing the sea along the coastal drive.

Fi-sha: Thank you, ma'am

TATA: Lalu rumah kat rumah awak Jalan Penglima. Rumah tu dah renovated.

Awang: LOL - it's the same guy. I thought I should protect his identity by re-naming him Jong in my entry, but the Guling gave it away. You can't hide when you have a handle like that.

Thank you for coming, folks. You people have a nice day now, y'hear?

Salam Bergen.

I had fond memories of Dungung.
I had my District Health Survey done there back in 1985 and we stayed one of the Pusat Kesihatan building by the seaside.We were there for 3 weeks. I can remember much about what I did during the surveys but I do remember we had a gala of a time.
We visited my friend Piang whose father was a teacher cum keropok maker ie Cikgu Mat Kepok who at that time had moved to Batu 5 just before going up Bukit Bauk( which was said to be famous for the flying pontianaks!)

We went fishing at the Dungung River's bridge at night.

The best part was our trip to Pulau Tenggol using a fishing boat.
It was a beautiful island with a small strip of beach.

Thanks for this wonderful entry bro.

I'm not familiar with Dungun much. But my family pass-by Dungun everytime we want to blk kg in Kuala Trg from Kemaman. And last week, my dad took us for minum pagi break at Dungun on our way balik kg..somewhere near Pasar Dungun.

And your entry came into my mind, Mr. Bergen. Keep up your good work promoting Dungun.. :-)
