Birds Of Different Feathers – Part 4

Birding seemed to be in fashion for the past few weeks even among the noob birders because we had several charming visitors!

What’s even better is that … Continue reading

Wow! I didn’t expect a 2-day-1-night trip to span over 7 days of blog posting but there’s just too much I want to share, like the unblemished simple-styled yet tasty food and the pulchritudinous landscapes of Sungei Lembing, an old tin mining town, that has in recent years become an exciting tourist destination for Malaysians … Continue reading
