Preface

 

My name is Wan Mohd Din bin Haji Wan Mohamed. I obtained a degree in BSc.HRD and now persuing my master degree in MSc.HRD. Started working for Kesedar in 1982 and was stationed in several location in South Kelantan.The latest location was Lojing Highlands before being transferred Kesedar Headquarters. Lojing Highlands is situated at the border with Cameron Highlands in Pahang and Kinta Height in Perak. My main function on the highland project was to study the suitablelity of crops to highland conditions. Now I am posted in IT Department at Kesedar Headquarters’, Gua Musang, Kelantan, Malaysia.

 

 

 

Gua Musang is at the border of Kelantan and Pahang. It is about four to five hours from Kuala Lumpur via Karak Highway, passing through Pahang’s remote towns like Raub and Kuala Lipis. Taking public transportation is convenient. From Kuala Lumpur, express buses and taxis are available at Pudu Raya or Hentian Putra. Express coaches run on fixed schedules. The most popular mode and perhaps the most interesting are by train. KTM express trains leave daily for Kelantan. From Kuala, the train heads south to Gemas before making a turn up north, passing various stations in Pahang before reaching Gua Musang. The journey takes eight to nine hours. Flying is another choice. There are direct flights from other airports in the country to Kota Bharu. From the Kelantan capital, it takes around there hours to Gua Musang. To add ‘co lour’, perhaps the train ride from Wakaf Baru, the nearest station to Kota Bharu, should be considered. Train service in Kelantan is quite unique. Besides the express, there is also a daily train making stops at every station and halt.
