fraser's hill

last weekend my parents came over, and we decided to go for a day trip to fraser's hill, which is about 3 and 1/2 hours drive from home. it was a fun day trip. i had wanted to go back to fraser's hill for a long time now, i used stay in fraser's hill a couple of days every other month when i was working with wwf malaysia many years ago.

the town centre's clock tower. fraser's hill is known for it's famous bird watching activity and there's an annual international bird race for bird enthusiast. i don't know much about bird names and i have forgotten quite a bit those that i learned. one thing i do know, the birds here are truly beautiful if you managed to see them.

jeriau waterfall. yes, we are waterfall fans. at least gene and i are. what better way to end our short trip than to enjoy the sound of nature.

on another note, i am trying hard to catch up on work. things to make for upcoming handmade market on the 5th march 2011, empire subang gallery. it's in my event page. i hadn't done much while mom and dad were here, we had so much fun. but i trust that all will be well, it's all good. i just do the best i can and everything else will fall into place just nicely. if you're free and around subang jaya, do drop by.

ok. that's my update, now back to the studio table.

p.s. so much goodness around here, i hardly am able to write down all of them, good thing blog friends do. my wonderful dinner with friends on zai's blog. the cake... ooh... the cake.

  6. Now age 63, I was at Fraser's Hill for Christmas 1962 and will never forget the fog, birdsong, jungle hikes, and the winding road to get there. Our guide showed us where the communists had (then recently) engaged in fighting at Fraser's. Loved your photos--they reminded me of one of the world's unusual places.
