The Clock Tower of Teluk Intan..

My family and I went to attend a wedding of a good friend in Teluk Intan. We later decided to take a tour around Teluk Intan and visited the 'Clock Tower' of which famously known for its similarity to the famous Pisa Tower of Italy.

The Clock Tower is actually constructed of good  quality which why it could stand until today, but of course who would have thought it would actually built to cater the water storage of the whole Teluk Intan?! Errrr...??

'Hiking' up Fraser's Hil

As long as I lived, my parents never took me to Fraser's Hill nor did I have any interest of going there. Rumours has it that, there was nothing much to do other than being appreciative of the slightly cool temperature than the normal 36 degree Celcius that we are having here in Klang Valley.

Anyway, on a what was a boring weekend, my hubby suggested that we drove up there.. well why not.. Our journey was via Kuala Kubu Bharu where we make our pit stop to get some snacks (do you know that Kuala Kubu Bharu was the location for Baik Punya Cilok a movie by Afdlin Shauki). We later drive through quite a quiet road, given the fact that there are only a couple of cars passes us by during the drive to the bottom of the hill. The road going up the hill was terribly winding, if I were to relate to the most winding road I have ever drive on to, this would be far worse than the old road leading to Cameron Highlands from Tapah! It's quite scary when you can immediately sees the deep ravine next to your window..huhu

When we finally reach the top... I guess the rumours was right all along!! There ain't much for you to see or do unless you are an avid nature lover or you are the type whom enjoy the laid back and quite town...I guess it would be a better option to come to Fraser Hills with a bunch of frens or groups of people so you can have a gathering of some sort by enjoying the environment..

Anyway, we didn't spent much  time there and before the evening ends, we already queuing up to go home (there's actually a schedule of coming up/going down the hill as the only road leading is winding narrow)

Elephant Santuary in Kuala Gandah

If you were an outdoor person, you would sure to love this place..owh, don't forget the elephant ride!! Ilham freaks out when he saw the mammoth hair of the elephant and decided not to take the ride..Anyway, this Kuala Gandah is located quite a distance from Temerloh exit of East-Coast Highway and if you were to ask me to guide you to go to the place - OMG, I would be very sorry to say, I have no idea how to get there again!

But, if you nature alove, get into your car and head for this place - National Elephant Conservation Centre (NECC) in Kuala Gandah, Lanchang in the state of Pahang (make sure you have your own GPS).There is no specific entry fee but you are welcome to donate for the centre to cover some of their expenses. Here,they allow you to ride on the elephants which is part of the elephants daily exercise and you can join them for their bath in the river!
