D.I.Y. Fisheye Lens
Since I bought my E-500, I had been dreaming of a fisheye lens. But until now, I still cannot afford one. What I like about the fisheye lens are the effect of the round distortion and it can cover super ultra wide angle of sight... Read More...

Cameron Highlands, My Trip: Part 1

Last 2 weeks was one of Malaysia's most celebrated public holiday, Deepavali. One of my ex-coursemate had been planning to go to Cameron Highlands for a vacation-cum-reunion for all ex-coursemates. Although only half of the coursemates managed to join this vacation, the fun and excitement was just like good old days...

It was a 3 days 2 nights trip, where we spent a night in Cameron Highlands and another in Ipoh. Before I starts my photo journey of this trip, mind to read some facts about Cameron Highlands...

Cameron Highlands is a highland region located about 121km east of Ipoh and about 214km north of Kuala Lumpur, in Pahang, Malaysia. At 5,000ft (1,500m) above sea level it is the highest area on the mainland, enjoys a cool climate, with temperatures no higher than 25°C and rarely falls below 12°C year-round. Cameron Highlands is actually a district in the state of Pahang Darul Makmur although the road entrance is via Tapah and Simpang Pulai in the state of Perak Darul Ridzuan. The size of the whole Cameron Highlands district is roughly two and a quarter times the size of Singapore. (Source: Wikipedia)



Having a nice tea before we start our journey...


Nice blue sky in Cameron Highlands...

We make our first stop in Tanah Rata. We checked in to our apartment and went for our lunch here.


Tanah Rata's clock tower...


Abandoned petrol station...

After lunch, we start our journey in Cameron Highlands. First, we stopped at Butterfly Farm. Well, this is only a mini butterfly farm. Some people waited for a while for some people to find parking, as this is a serious problem in Cameron Highlands.


The entrance...

Cameron Highlands is a high humidity and cold place. But cactus managed to grow beautifully here. I wonder why???
