Malaysia Kuala Lumpur
Malaysia Kualah Gandah
Sheila was glad, I did not ride the elephants while walking into the water. It looked dangerous and !! we saw that they pooped into the water.
Later we had a nice lunch at a hidden camp along a small river in nice jungle atmosphere.
The trained and expensive Makkake ape is working as coconut picker and normally lives together with the human family. We were shown how he does his work.
Swiss Garden Resort with a great Black Forest Cake. A very nice, pleasant resort.
In a market hall in Kuantan and drying fish at the Kuantan coast. This fish is turned into a fish sauce which is served in the whole country with different meals and which always has a bad odour for my european nose.
Malaysia Kuala Dungung
Famous Crystal Mosque and islamic convention Center in Terengganu.
Shop in Kota Bharu, Kelantan where I baught a colourfull shirt which I wore that night at the Renaissance Kota Bharu Hotel Ramadhan Buffet after sunset. We stayed one night in the outstanding first class Hotel and enjoyed the great buffet. Ramadhan does not meen you can’t eat or drink all day, you just can’t eat while the sun is shining. Which is a hard burden in countries with hot climate and if you have to work during the day.
Malaysia Tasik Banding Tasik Temenggor Lake
we crossed the important bridge Tasik Temenggor lake here in the North close to neighbour Thailand. It is a mountain area with a lot of green forest.
On the other side of the mountains we came to a mostly deforested area with palm oel tree plantations, probably areas where earlier Orangutan apes lived. We could see the deforestation working it’s way up into the mountains on our way to Penang Island.
Someone has to pay the price for our and yes. also my excessive way of living.
We did not like the smell of the fish sauce in the bigger summit restaurant on Penang hill so we found something more sophistcated, brittish stile and had english coffee here which was a delight.
