One more from Selar. See previous post on Endau Rompin National Park. Sunrise at Endau Rompin. The Johor Parks management is doing all the right things such as operating an office at Bekok town to provide assistance to visitors. I wrote at the time.
The Selar part of the Endau Rompin National Park is beautiful and remote as few visitors approach it from the western entrance through Bekok town, This is where tigers and elephants roam. Many waterfalls too.You will also meet the Jakun tribe here.
You need to research in advance if a permit and fees are .payable. It is a long way to turn back. A 4WD vehicle is mandatory. There is a guard post in which they hired a native orang asli as guard. That's commendable. I stayed at the nearby town of Segamat or you can also stay at Labis too..
The common house crows are so hated everywhere because they are intelligent, noisy and invade our environment. They expose our lack of cleanliness and the lack of proper street cleaning and rubbish disposal by local authorities. For exposing their shortcomings and failure to do their jobs, some heartless town halls resort to shooting them.
This was the pic I used for Fraser's Hill contributed by Sharon Teo. (https://www.facebook.com/seaDevilyn)
It is too beautiful to be buried and deserves to be a standalone post. One thing I used to like about Frasers were the many ferns growing wild there.
Let's Go Cameron's.
A ball of hydrangea in front of the the lake in front of the Lakehouse Resort, Ringlet, Cameron Highlands. This upcoming school holidays take your kids and family for some fresh strawberry jam and hot scones, served on cozy antique armchairs with fireplace in view.
Many things I experienced as a school kid such as giant rhinoceros beetles, giant Rajah Brooke birdwing butterflies and giant jungle leaves are now hard to find. You owe it to your kids to let them experience it while still possible.
My petite Panasonic GM-1 is dwarfed by a giant leaf in an isolated and remote rain forest trail. I was on my way to the unknown Sungai Sendat Waterfalls located in the Batang Kali Forest Reserve. In the land of giant leaves and trees, the Lilliputian GM-1 camera belies its sophistication.
It is a very capable m43 mirrorless system camera. Serving as my backup and secondary camera.
Since we are looking at Sabah hotels, I dug up some pics from a trip to KK with the NPC or the National Press Club. Don't wear red life jackets or red safety helmets in case you encounter a charging water buffalo mid stream. The dangers are not just from hidden rocks and sudden drops. I shot this from the famous wobbly suspension rope bridge high above the Kiulu River.
A Love Story From The Graves.
On a gloomy and windy day, a frangipani landed on the edge of a tombstone. Perhaps, it wanted to be near the fading, hanging red hibiscus it was admiring and longing from the treetop? Will the impending rain separate them again? Or will they wilt together? An ant and silent, invisible souls around them will bear witness.
