as its beautiful half submerged rocks.
The locals here talk about a story of a women who gave birth to a twin,
one was a boy by the name of Jamal and his twin, surprisingly was a baby crocodile.
They cared for it until one days it was to big to be handled
that they decided to release it into the sea.
The released twin is called 'Buaya Jamal' by the locals
and it 'll return whenever there are any big occasion in the family
or during the muslim festives period to the cape.
"Buaya Jamal' was shot dead at the Pengkalan Balak beach in 1978
and it was said to have very smooth skin
and a veterinarian did an autopsy on the crocodile even though the relatives objected.
He died of mysterious circumstances soon after that.
Until today the descendants of 'Buaya Jamal' still lives by the cape
and the ritual continues with the offspring of 'Buaya Jamal'.
'Batu Terbalik' or Overturned Rock was caused by the blasting of the rocks on the cape
by the British during the colonial days for some unknown reason,
probably they are trying to turn the place into a quarry.
'Batu Tenggek' or piggyback rock is another famous rock to the locals there.
Meanwhile this rock(Batu Paus) looks like a Beluga whale surfacing for some food.
while this one looks like a giant eel swimming away
and i will named it 'Batu Belut' of Eel Rock.
The small patch of vegetation on top of this rock
must be very special for it to the able to withstand
the heat and the salty waters.
It's said to have medicinal values by the locals.
