I was at the Belum-Temengor Rainforest area, or better known as the Royal Belum State park for a visit recently. It was a short trip and as with any trips, the journey or process of getting there is sometimes more than the fun of the destination itself.
Our drive up north the state of Perak bordering Thailand took us to Sauk, a small town along the way. Idyllic and nostalgic of yesteryears indeed.
It was a couple of days before the big Raya holidays and I hit the road toward Pangkor for a stay at the Swiss-Garden Golf Resort & Spa Damai Laut. This resort is quite a distance away from the more well-known touristy Lumut town.
Built on a quiet peninsular on the Northern Straits of Malacca, the Swiss-Garden hotel is ensconced in a little corner with its own private beach.
I hit the road up north to Pusing, Perak in search for a wooden step ladder chair I found on the internet. I've been searching for something similar at KL but to no avail, until I stumbled upon Hung Lee Carpentry in an online trading website.
"Pusing" in the Malay language means "Turn". It's just one of many small towns scattered along trunk roads in the rural country side, sharing the likes of Tronoh, Gopeng, Kampar, etc.
It was the first day of Raya celebration and I've decided to head out on a photo day trip to the Malaysian country side with a friend. We started our journey from PJ at 8.00 am along a trunk road going up north.
The aim was to take an aimless drive up north along these old and forgotten towns, and stop as and when necessary should a photo opportunity arises. No pressure, no deadlines, no plans. Just us, the road and the camera.
