Friday (16 Feb 2007) saw us visiting the famous terusan Wan Mat Saman. After much searching, we found the irrigation canal which really looked nothing more than a monsoon drain! Still, it played an important part in the state's economy :-)

Next we headed for the Paddy Museum near Gunung Keriang. Interesting place with a revolving gallery where you can view a huge 360-degree mural of paddy planting activities.
After lunch we headed home, stopping on the way in Gurun, at the foot of Gunung Jerai, to sample nira nipah. Smells a bit like todddy but not as strong in taste. Reasonably pleasant and sweet.
