Pulau Langkawi which are notable for the wealth of legends with which they are associated with was choosen for our Company's (Ipoh Cargo Terminal Sdn Bhd) Annual Family day for year 2004. Shopping and visiting the historical places and tourist spots beside games and telematch are the main activities for the two days we were there.

I am unable to uncover the whole island because I have arranged games and telematch for the staff, spouses and children within the two days of our stay but I will return to explore Langkawi again during our next visit perhaps with members of Photo Malaysia (

Here are the few photographs taken during our Company's family day on 29th August to 31st August 2004

After planning 3 months earlier me and a few fishing buddies managed to have a few days off from our normal work and decided to have a rest. Our destination is Tasik Kenyir located in the interior of Terengganu and spanning over 260,000 hectares, Tasik Kenyir is the largest man-made lake in South East Asia. Sharing its border with Kelantan in the west and Pahang in the south, this immense lake also serves as another gateway to Taman Negara (National Park).

Tasik Kenyir is known as an angler?s haven where fishing is concerned. With the many rivers and tributes serving as breeding grounds, hundreds of species of sport fishers like the Kelisa, Kelah, Toman, Baung, Sebarau, and Lampan, just to name a few, are found in abundance. Good fishing sport are at Cacing, Pertang, Leban, Petuang, Saok, Sg. Terenggan and many others.

Our specific spot is Sg Trenggan which is at Taman Negara. Few photos here for your views.

I went to this waterfall and just beginning to take up photography as a hobby. I have seen people's photo on waterfall that look like a snow or like white silk. I find out from a friend how to do it. So I took the photo as being told... with slow shutter speed.

Here are the result

At one time I found my time to visit the Kellie’s Castle after my fishing trip at one of the ex mining pool at Batu Gajah. The Perak State Government in line with its promotion for the tourist attraction properly maintains this castle in terms of cleanliness and facilities. On the walls hanged a nicely narrated history of the castle and the summary is mentioned below.

“Kellie's Castle was meant to be a home away from home for Scottish Planter, William Kellie Smith in the 19th century in Perak. Being far away from home, Kellie desired his new residence to be reminiscent of his home back in Scotland. The castle is perched on top of a hill of what used to be a rubber estate.
William Kellie Smith was an interesting man who was popular with his South Indian workers. Kind at heart, he erected a Hindu shrine for his workers on the castle premise. As a token of appreciation, his workers in return erected a statue of Kellie complete in a white suit and hat.
Construction of this fine architecturally one-of-its-kind castle begun in 1915. However, it came to an abrupt halt with Kellie's sudden death in 1926. The ruins of the uncompleted orange-coloured castle stand in isolation and undergrowth struggled to find a foothold on the stones. In the pale moonlight it takes on an aura of a castle caught in the timelessness of a fairy tale. “

I managed to take a few photo for your viewing and if you do pass Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia just drop by and see for yourself the uncompleted castle.

From Kuala Lumpur to the North using the PLUS Highway, exit through Simpang Pulai Interchange and the signboard will direct you to the said castle.
