Parit Buntar! Actually it’s not really a kampung la. Once known as Kerian, famous for it’s sugar cane production during British colonial, and also the arowana, which produced by the Kerian River. And now become the Northest city of Perak State, bordered by Kedah and Penang.
Parit Buntar holds a very important role, to connect between these 3 states. The economy here even bursted after the launched of the USM engineering campus, just situated neighbouring to Parit Buntar. Here is where u can find everythings, about nature! hehe, of course la, Parit Buntar no big shopping centers. But we only need 30mins to reach Penang, 20 mins to reach Bukit Merah and also 40 mins to reach Taiping. And the most important thing is, Parit Buntar…My Hometown.
Only 5 minutes needed to travel between these 3 states, if u stay here. Even cycling also consumed u abt 10 minutes. Hehe, so according to me, the people here become the most interstate travelers in Malaysia, hehe.
I love my town, this is the place where I spent my secondary school life time with. My family, my education, my friendships, and also the place where I grown become a man, hehe. It’s not a big city, but it’s full of my footprints… Thx, PB.
If u hv a chance to drop by, pls dun forget to enjoy the picturesque view formed by the Kerian River.
