Troupers

Met these two young Malay lion dance troupers last year. As I wastaking their pic, their Chinese and Indian teammates kept mentioning KFC.

Puzzled, I asked them about it. One of the boys appeared in a KFC television commercial near that time.

According to Albert Fong, lion dance expert and trainer on my Facebook, they are Hakimi Ismail (left) and Eskandar Zolkarnaine.

It is not as rare or unusual as one would think, I photographed the occurrence of fire rainbows or rainbow clouds in our skies a couple of times previously.

Here's a picture of the one I saw next to our Parliament Building in November 2015.

The Leaning Tower Of Teluk Intan.

Saw a post from Teluk Intan native Chong See Ming and decided to try out Facebook's improved search of old posts. Found the image surprisingly quick.That it works will save me much time in finding the captions for my book. The original pic is in high quality PSD format.

If you are a Photoshop user, you may like to know that the free Faststone Viewer is the only image viewer or simple app that can display PSD files in a gallery. Even Photoshop can't do that. Heh.

Lembah Beringin - Part 4

Welcome To Lembah Beringin.

Neatly cut and coiffured grass is flanked by tall unruly lalang weed. The abandoned security guard post is falling apart but is surrounded by tidy, well swept roads.

The sparkling sign must have been recently cleaned and washed too. Right behind are the dilapidated and empty homes. I like the deceiving sunny disposition captured. Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits kept playing in my mind.

Panasonic Lumix GM-1, ISO 200, f9, 1/400 sec.

After The Signpost.

Arriving from Kerling, the visitor is greeted by ruins immediately after a sign that marks the town of Lembah Beringin.

Rows and rows of brutal abandonment hit you in the face. I am not sure if the houses were were even completed. Many such properties have their metal fittings such as windows, door grills, plumbing and electrical wiring stolen or stripped. A group of scrap metal collectors (besi burok) guys descended like a swarm of locusts eating everything its way.
