I still remember the lyrics of BALIKKAMPUNG song by Sudirman. Everybody loves going back to kampung especially during festive season or public holiday. I'm just sharing some photos during our last trip back to Kulim ....:)
My sister always mentioned about this restaurant , quoting that it's the best western food offering in Kulim ...hmmmmmm sounds interesting. Personally I'm a big fan of a good medium done steak and hearing about a good eating spot like this interest me a lot ..
So during our last balikkampung trip I bring the whole troop to Chef Det. It's located in Kilang Lama (rumahIffil Mia ) and you can see the sign from the main road. I've ordered the best steak in the Menu ....Cheese Steak ..medium done others ordered lamb chop, chicken chop and others.
After 15 minutes the menu delivered, hmmmmm not sure what is the problem but the steak was really bad .....I might probably go back but not for the steak
AbangZaini was my one and only room mate during UUM days. I'm not sure why but for 4 years we've been in the same room 5d 204 (Kolej EON) without having to move to another room or colleges.
Both of us graduated in 1997 and since then I've never had the chance to meet him again. I know that he's into teaching and once was posted to Sabah. During the last school break I've tried to look for him (in FB) and alhamdulillah we're connected again.
He's currently based in Kulim and his house is about 10 minutes drive from my parent's house. After almost 15 years finally the 5D 204 members are back together. And I've made a promise to him to visit him every time I'm back to Kulim.
If somebody ask me the best zoo that I've been, my answer probably Vancouver Zoo (I was there back in the 90s) but if the question is about zoo in Malaysia, my answer will be Taiping Zoo.
The size is just right, not too big and not too small. This permits visitors to walk without depending too much on the tramp. I really like the collection the animals in Taiping Zoo, especially the exotic collections.
Another plus point about the zoo is the R&R area in the middle of the zoo itself. It give the chance for visitor to take a short break before continuing their walk. The zoo has been Taiping landmark for quiet a while and I believe it will stay like that for more year to comes.
We went there during the last school break. It's part of our Taiping town trip. This is not my first time but only during this visit I was made to know that this museum is the first in the country. Most of the exhibition is about history of Perak.
I really like the information about OrangAsli and Perak has a lot of history related to OrangAsli. The LabuSayong information is really interesting. History about Perak warrior like MegatTerawih is also displayed. There's also replica of the remaining bones from the Elephant that hit a train in 1894 (rumors said that the elephant was revenging the killing of her baby).
Another interesting fact about the museum is the location just next to Taiping Prison , so it's very unique seeing prisoner being taken out from the prison wearing the orange uniform probably going to the court and of course being escorted.
This was not plan actually. I was browsing through all the stuffs in this BUNDLE SHOP and was interested in 3 baseball related items. One from Yankees (of course), a diamondback and a Cincinnati reds. While browsing through I just happily asking the owner how much will be the damage.
'MURAHJE BANG 3 HELAI RM 10 JE ...TAHUNBARUPUNYEDISKAUN' ...it's really out of this world cheap. So after RM 10 changeover , the 3 baseball collective items is mine. A good start to 2012.
