On our way to Fraser's Hill last Saturday, the GPS took us through Bentong which was a longer journey to the Gap. No idea why it did that because the shorter route was through Kuala Kubu Bharu. Anyway, I have no big regrets passing through Bentong - the only frustration was to endure the slow traffic in the town and also a police checkpoint along the way - because we passed by several roadside fruit stalls. Apart from the durian, the jackfruit (nangka) stalls were plentiful. Must be the season right now. One kilogramme of the jackfruit cost us RM9 and honestly, it was a lot for three people to finish! The stall owners claimed that their jackfruit was as sweet as honey. They weren't kidding.
