[39 Photos] Suasana Di Bandar Abbottabad, Breakfast Tak Sedia Lagi di Restoran Usmania & Bertolak ke Qalandarabad | Northern Pakistan 2013 | Day 1/6 – Part 5

Kami tiba di Bandar Abbottabad seawal jam 8 pagi. Masih lagi awal rasanya. Bagi saya ini bukanlah kali pertama saya sampai ke Bandar Abbottabad yang cukup terkenal di dunia ini. Dah berkali-kali rasanya. Dahulu ada seorang student Malaysia, Adrian Zailan yang sedang belajar di dalam bidang perubatan di Ayub Medical College (AMC). Selalu juga saya singgah ke Bandar Abbottabad ini untuk berjumpa dengan beliau. Kini beliau telah kembali ke Malaysia dan bekerja sebagai seorang doktor di Kota Bharu, Kelantan. Apa ada dengan Abbottabad? Jangan tak tau, di sinilah tentera Navy SEAL USA datang untuk membunuh Osama Laden pada bulan Mei 2011 dahulu. Kalau anda bertanya kepada penduduk tempatan di sini akan perihal Osama Laden, pasti semuanya akan menafikannya. Emmm entahlah!

Pemandu saya Shaheen Akhtar juga berasal dari Abbottabad. Kampung beliau berhampiran dengan Shimla Hill. Beliau berketurunan Hazara. Pada 2010, wilayah ini ditukar nama daripada North-West Frontier Province atau dikenali juga sebagai NWFP kepada Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province atau KPK. Shaheen Akhtar semestinya tidak bersetuju dengan nama baru ini kerana bagi beliau, beliau mahukan Hazara Province dan bukannya Pakhtun Province. Macam-macam! Bagi saya, saya sukakan namanya yang lama yang agak ada elemen-elemen British NWFP di situ. Nama yang diberikan oleh pihak British suatu ketika dahulu semasa mereka menjarah dan menjajah seantero alam.

Sedikit sejarah berkenaan bandar yang terkenal ini. Abbottabad asalnya adalah nama yang diberi oleh James Abbott, seorang askar British yang bertugas di wilayah sebelah sini. James Abbott menjadikan Abbottabad sebagai Summer Station kerana suhunya yang nyaman dan dingin, tidak terlalu panas ketika musim panas yang membahang di Pakistan. Abbottabad juga sebenarnya bersalji ketika musim sejuk nanti. Rakan saya Adrian Zailan pernah juga merekodkan pengalaman beliau bermain salji dan ketika salji turun dengan lebatnya di kolej perubatan beliau daulu. James Abbott sangat menyukai Abbottabad sampaikan beliau ada mencipta puisi atau sajak khas untuk Abbottabad. Di Abbottabad juga terdapat kem tentera dan kolej universiti. Kita akan ketemu dengan ramai tentera di bandar.

Apabila kami tiba di Restoran Usmania, kami diberitahu restoran belum dibuka lagi. Perut dah kelaparan ni. Hanya sempat menjamah laici di Haripur sahaja tadi. Kami mengambil keputusan untuk beredar dan makan pagi di kedai lain. Terpaksa buat U-Turn untuk ke Restoran Nadia di PC Hotel di Abbottabad. Selalu juga saya singgah ke PC Hotel untuk makan dan tidur sebelum ini. PC hotel biliknya agak kecil dan kemudahannya tidaklah sehebat PC Hotel di Bhurban. Namun agak selesa. Makan pagi kami ialah pharata dan omelette sahaja. Bersama dengan doodthpati chai yang enak diminum di waktu pagi yang sejuk ini. Maaf kijeye. Tiada gambar makanan. Semua dah kelaparan. Lensa & telefon bimbit terpaksa ditinggalkan sendirian. Tangan lebih pantas menjamah makanan. Sekian.

Apa-apa pun kita layan dulu gambar-gambar berskala besar travelogue kali ini di bawah ya !
