Mosque in University Technology Petronas

When you pass by University Technology Petronas along Ipoh-Lumut Highway at night, the lighted up mosque that looked like The White House of United States appeared to be amazing & attarctive. It is even more charming when captured with it's reflection on the lake.

Sunset at Putrajaya

It was a dinner at the only restaurant that is facing the Prime Minister office in Putrajaya, the Malaysian Federal Government central administration center. The evening was so peaceful when hanging around the lake side.

An Afternoon at Sekinchan Beach

Staying at inland city, sitting at the beach watching the sea and enjoying the breeze is not something I can do everyday. During last weekend, I drive two and half hours crossing state to this famous little town in Selangor, Sekinchan, to enjoy a relaxing and lazy afternoon.

Although the beach does not have silky smooth sand & crystal clear water, the scene is still attractive. The wave is hitting the beach softly. I can hear the sound of wind in this peaceful condition.

Fishing boats start returning to the jetty around 4pm. This must be another tiring day for the fishermen.

The Little Town Gopeng

Gopeng is a small town located about 20km to the south of Ipoh. Just like Ipoh, it was also established on tin mining industry during the end of 19th century. Nowadays Gopeng is just a small & peaceful town after the collapse of tin mine industry in year 1986. The Federal trunk road (Federal Route 1) of Peninsula Malaysia is crossing the town center. Old shops are lining up along the two sides, standing silently for a century & facing the change of the world.

A Day in Teluk Intan

Teluk Intan is a major town located at south west of Perak State. It is formerly known as Teluk Anson (Anson Bay). The town is surrounded by the Perak River at 3 sides in a U-shaped curve. The town is famous of its leaning clock tower which was built in year 1885.

After visiting the Leaning Clock Tower, we proceed to a traditional restaurant, Teck Kee, which serves nice food, such as “chee cheong fun”, desert & Chinese cuisine. The shop is located at Jalan Raja, with its 2 ends crossing with Jalan Pasar & Jalan Ah Cheong. The shop’s interior is decorated with classical furniture. Among those I like the old photos of Teluk Intan town very much.

We took some time driving around the town. Before leaving, we follow some small signboards & found the famous Tiger Head brand cookies (Sin Joo Heong confectionery). For sure we have to bring back some of these tasty local snack.

Not far from the shop, we reached the river bank of Perak River. The trip ended after taking some photos of the river. It was heavy rain on our way back, especially when reaching Kampung Gajah.

Start with a Colorful Day

It was raining the night before this sunrise captured. Smoother cloud shape is always seen after rain. The thin layer of cloud reflects the morning sun shine displaying a colorful sky.

Tradition Town in Suzhou

September 2008, my second business trip to Suzhou with colleagues. After completing our task, we took some time visiting a famous tradition town in the Suzhou district. There are very nice scenes & interesting ancient industry, but it has been made too commercialize to attract tourist.

Golden Sunset

Another beautiful sunset today. That is the reason I always like to stay at higher ground just because I can have wider view on the land & sky.

Sunset at Suzhou

It was my first time to China & I stayed in Suzhou. It was a summer evening where I was walking alone in the city experiencing the life of local people. Looking at the sunset, the feeling is so different when away from hometown.

Town Hall in the Silent Night

The lonely Town Hall is facing the silent street after night fall. Hard to imagine this is one of the busiest street in town during day time.
