This is the starting point of the trail to Puteri Mandi waterfall. It became increasingly difficult as we ascend to the location

Lots of flowers and herbs are available at Gunung Jerai Forest Reserve

Look at the size of the rocks. The waterfall's pond is behind me. I don't dare to swim...takut ada Sawa Berendam dalam tu!

At the front gate of Summit Trail (before the group started to climb Mt. Kinabalu). Notice a porter with Petronas' LPG gas container. The porter sent the gas container to a restaurant at Laban Rata. It was reported that he was paid RM75 per unit for the trip. Imagine the price of foods and drinks at the restaurant - extremely expensive!

palm jumeirah @ dubai

October 12, 2008

Assalamualaikum Wrt. Wbt.

  1. I received interesting images through e-mail from one of my friends. I don’t know whether the images are the most current, but it definitely grabbed my attention.
  2. The images indicate the latest architecture and engineering knowledge achieved by mankind in construction industry. With technology, you could create your own private beach right in your front door!
  3. Palm Jumeirah is an elite residential area at Dubai. It has attracted hundreds of real property investors around the world.
  4. Look at the details of the houses being build in the area by construction workers (mostly from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh). Every house is built on a reclaimed land, or in this case, reclaimed beach, and has unique design.
  5. Images of Burj Dubai were included in the e-mail as well. It is the tallest building in the world standing at 2,620 feet or 801 meters.
  6. Now, this is what we called superb architecture and engineering!

skyhawk @ upm (part ii)

October 5, 2008

Assalamualaikum Wrt. Wbt.

  1. This was a sad ending of A4-PTM Skyhawk in Malaysia.
  2. Next to the beautiful white Skyhawk, another aircraft’s fuselage, engine, drop tanks, and delta wing were scattered on the tarmac.
  3. The aircraft’s registration number is still visible: TUDM M32-11. I keep searching the Internet to get pictures of the same aircraft during its heyday, but to no avail.
  4. Compare the cannibalized Skyhawk with the following image taken during its operational days in Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF). Wasn’t it magnificent?
  5. Notice that the fuselage of the operational Skyhawk was slighly elevated due to its heavy payloads in term of engine, 2 drop-tanks, plus weapons. The white Skyhawk at UPM is only a cocoon, without engine and electronic devices. That is the reason why its fuselage is horizontal.

my peaceful village

September 28, 2008

Assalamualaikum Wrt. Wbt.

The good old bridge to my parent's house

  1. Kampung Titi Serong is located in Yan Kechil, Kedah Darul Aman. It is sandwiched by Gunung Jerai – the highest mountain in Kedah, and Malacca Straits.
  2. It is connected to major towns such as Guar Chempedak, Sungai Limau, and Yan via good paved roads.
  3. The village is surrounded by vast areas of picturesque paddy fields. Most of the villagers are Malays (98%) and work as a farmer.
  4. One of the most important landmarks in this village is Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Agama Yan (SMKAY). The best student of STPM class 2007, Azali Azalan, studied in this school.
