Kellie’s Castle – A Century Old Mansion

1

Kellie’s Castle is located near Batu Gajah and about 20 minutes drive from Ipoh. A century old unfinished, ruined mansion was built by a Scottish planter called William Kellie Smith. According to differing accounts, it was either a gift for his wife or a home for his son.

Let’s have a short history about this building. The construction began in 1915 and came to an abrupt half with Kellie’s sudden death in 1926. Perak State Government has restored this magnificent structure from the encroaching foliage.

Besides being haunted, the castle is believed to have hidden rooms and secret underground tunnels towards the rubber plantation. The road that leads to Kellie’s Castle follows the contours of the land in a dizzying, maze-like fashion, adding to the mystery and romance of the place.

I’ve been waiting for so long to visit Kellie’s Castle due to its strong historical value. My recent visit to Perak for water rafting has given me a chance to stop by.

Car park is FREE. An entrance fee is RM4 for adult.

AMONG all outing that I’ve been to, this one was a bit different. It’s inside the venue. Alright, the recent exhibition held in National Science Centre has brought back many people old memories. Being a science stream student, this centre was my favorite place in the past.

Taman Buaya Melaka

Taman Buaya Melaka is one of the largest crocodile farm in the country. This farm has over 200 crocodiles of various species including the Siamese, African Dwarf, Humpback and Indian Marsh. My visit was part of my journey to widen my exposure to Melaka tourism.

Taman Buaya Melaka (Malacca Crocodile Farm)

The crocodile farm is located just opposite the Zoo Melaka and easily found along the road from Ayer Keroh toll to the town. Car park should be free but very packed with cars especially during the weekend. I parked rather far away at 11.00am.

Finally, I managed to arrange my time to visit the farm since 18 years ago … how long is that you know? I was almost forgotten how it was look like in the past. Over the time, the crocodile farm had renovated into modern and achieves the biggest crocodile farm in the country.

Melaka Night View

Among many places I went to, Melaka still offers me the best revisiting destination. I’ve done many places in daylight, it’s time to move to night time. That’s what I called Melaka Night View.

Melaka Night View @ Befallen Light of the City

Due to I’m not really into night explorer of the street, there will be no review about any happening elsewhere in Melaka. Instead, I’ll be presenting a series of photographs taken at night, especially the Melaka River.

My short weekend in Melaka normally more happening during daylight, but caught unaware of such a beautiful sight at night. In fact, places like Melaka River Cruise could offer a lot of dancing lights when you follow along the way from river side.

Let’s the picture do the talking now.

Cactus Garden @ Taman Pertanian Malaysia

1

My previous visits with Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam (a.k.a Taman Pertanian Malaysia) were about SkyTrek and cycling activities. In fact, many place yet to be discovered with only half day here.

18 Dec 2010 | Cactus Garden @ Bukit Cahaya

Normally, you guys will associate this place with cycling but other than cycling, there are much more hardcore activities going on here such as paintball, skytrek and etc.

If you’re too lazy to walk along the way, just rent a bicycle for RM5 for first hour, subsequent RM1 per hour. Would you rather move on the wheel?

I’ve been invited for this for fun cycling. But I won’t be here for just cycling because I simply love to explore. Explore new place is a BIG must. I recalled a place where the cactus plant resides. Yea, it’s CACTUS GARDEN.

To go here, just follow the signboard available there, it’s same route with SkyTrek direction and further until the end.
