Rock climbing in KL, Gua Damai, Batu Caves

I happen to know this place when I first came to Kuala Lumpur, and it have been a common place for weekend activity for quite some time until now. It just lately, I could not spend more time. One of the best thing about the place is the people. Everyone were accommodating, and friendly, not forget to mention about the kids there.

Gua Damai located north side of Batu Caves, near Kampung Melayu Wira Damai. Coordinate: 3.2477904, 101.687463. Last few month, I have the chance to spend some evening there, at the place, and did some bouldering with the kids, and of course, cycling. 🙂 Here are some pictures

Tioman Island, Pahang.

Last April 2010, I went to Tioman Island with some of my friends from university and office. Its quite a short trip, we spend 1 night on the Island, and 2 night in car while driving. Its was quite a tiring trip, but really great. It cost us around RM 200 (without foods) for each of us.

We depart from Tanjung Gemuk jetty, at about 7am, the earliest ferry to go to the island. On top of the ferry ticket, there was also a marine park permit, that cost us RM7 each. From some articles I’ve read, they said that the ferry should stop at Tekek, then move towards south from it. If you plan to go north, you have to either walk, or rent a boat from Tekek. Our ferry that day start dropping passengers from south to north, starting from Kg Genting. BTW, Tekek is like the main town of Tioman. You will find the only ATM machine (BSN) and airport in Tekek.

Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, Temerloh.

A friend of mine once mentioned about elephant sanctury in Temerloh, Pahang. Its not too far, and i figured this is the right time to go for it. The right time i mean at that particular time is already 3 month back. Now only I have the time to blog about it.

The place is quite remote, and you have to drive past villages, but its quite easy to find. Just exit at Lanchang, and just drive straight, until you can see signboard to the sanctuary. There are free tickets to be distributed, but they have color scheme for the tickets. The red ticket is for most people, and with this ticket, you can just see and say hi to the elephant. With green ticket, you can have a shower session with the elephant. But, this ticket is limited to 100 tickets issued per day. So, you have to be there as soon as possible before the tickets runs out.
