Friday Snapshot: Trees in the tides, Bako National Park

December 2011: Bako National Park, Malaysia Borneo     Visiting Bako National Park in Malaysia Borneo was one of the many highlights of our Malaysia Borneo trip.

The local bus & the rest on foot-hiking to the Boh Tea Plantation

In our quest to try to stay fit we thought we’d do some hiking up to the Tea Plantations. The closest one to us was the Boh Tea Plantation, the largest tea plantation in Malaysia. Taking the local bus from Tanah Rata, we made our way out of town early enough. The weather was perfect- [...]

On Location: Photo of the week- Kuala Lumpur

September 29, 2011: Malaysia   We love visiting our friends in Kuala Lumpur. Although I am not a huge fan of the hot, sticky heat that hits me every time I leave their apartment, I do love returning to a big city. Knowing that we have friends here makes it easy for us decide to [...]

Friday Snapshot: Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

Postcard Friday: Cameron Highlands   The Cameron Highlands were a wonderful escape from the heat that had followed us from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur. Here, high in the mountains, with lush tea leaf landscapes all around us, I finally felt like the sticky heat feeling had left me and I wanted to stay here for [...]

Hiking down Malaysia’s Gunung Brinchang- a photo story

After reading about all the tours offered to hike through the mossy forest, aka Gunung Brinchang, we decided we’d do it ourselves and not on a tour, since we’d only be allowed a limited amount of time in the forest and we wanted to stay as long as we liked to take some photographs. Gunung [...]

Inside the Perak Cave Temple

We arrived in Ipoh knowing there were many cave temples to visit. However, due to our extreme budgeting we somehow picked a cheap (good) hotel that was on the outskirts of town (not good). *Note- always check your distances. Getting a taxi ride into the center would be expensive, but our mistake had put us [...]

A photo story: Butterfly & Insect Farm, Malaysia

I’d been really missing Peru and its jungle full of insects lately. Sounds crazy but I was having bug withdrawals! Since we knew Malaysia to have a variety of amazing bug creatures we took a trip over to the Selamat Datang Butterfly and Insect Farm. It turned out to be one of the best days yet [...]

Picking our own strawberry breakfast in Malaysia

What better way to start your day than to pick your own strawberries? This was my idea before our wander around the Cameron Highlands. We were going to attempt to visit a tea plantation-but not on a tour, just walking there ourselves. Bur first things first-some sweet strawberries to munch on along the way. Mike [...]
