Taman Rama-Rama Melaka is one of the sanctuary that houses butterflies and insects in the world. More than 200 local species included the rare species such as Rajah Brooke and Birdwing. Other than that, they are more than 400 collection of insects.
Taman Rama-Rama (Melaka)
Butterfly Park in Melaka is one of the few places I visit during my stay in Melaka. It’s just located after Ayer Keroh toll. You have to turn to the left after the toll OR pay attention to the signboard once you paid your toll.
Carpark is FREE. Entrance fees is RM6 for adult and RM3 for your camera!
The weather during my visit is okay, just a bit of raining. Not many peoples at that time although it was a holiday. Perhaps once in every 10 years as my last visit is almost a decade.
A group of butterfly sucking the juice from orange and pineapple slices.
In fact, there are many local species and rare species is very hard to find.
A beautiful species here.
It’s very concentrate on its meal until not aware that we have taken 2 pictures already with close gap.
A koi pond which I think is a must in such beautiful landscape. Compliment to the nature.
Other than normal butterflies that we expected, there are many unexpected could be seen. One of it is weird frog which look alike robotic. Geezzz.
America Alligator is damn dangerous compare to asian crocs.
I suddenly think that whether should I visit Crocodile Farm in my next destination since they had their own section here and wondering what the need to have a special park dedicated to them.
Can I have Bear Park or Tiger Park?
What a leopard is going to do in Butterfly Park and Reptilians? To make RM6 entrance fees worth enough?
Malayan Tapir can be found in some forested habitat. It can be seen actively during the night. I like tapir due to the color scheme equal to panda.
Asian tortoise is the largest inhabiting Asia and fourth largest in the world.
Turtle is coming after the tortoise. One is land and one is water.
Through out the park, I noticed some reptiles in their own cage with different species from different countries.
Butterfly exhibition room is in final section. This indoor section with a massive collection of insects in dead form.
The park is an imitation of the butterfly’s natural habitat in overall. So, if you want to come to the Taman Rama-Rama, Melaka (Butterfly Farm, Melaka), make sure to bring camera as it’s worth to bring back some wonderful shots.
DeXXy.Net is wishing everybody “Gong Xi Fa Cai” and prosperous year in this Cow Year. I’ll be back to elder uncle house for reunion dinner as usual. Chinese people take Chinese New Year very seriously, particularly a big family re-union and the food is always the most important. This has been practise since I was born.
Tomorrow morning, again we all will be gather at uncle house for early lunch in the morning to wish each other Gong Xi Fa Cai and receive red packet. Soon after that, we start our personal visiting to others.
It’s a tradition that we all still practicing until now.
Sungai Gabai Waterfall is located at the district of Hulu Langat. The waterfalls have few falls which cascade down over 100 meters. Apart from swimming and picnicking, wading in the river among the rocks and boulders can be an exciting outing for the whole family.
As I love weekend outing, this weekend is kind of special. It’s a place where I never been before and very scenic in Hulu Langat district. If you come from Kajang, you should follow the road sign to Hulu Langat or Pangsun.
The distance is about 25km from KL. My group is form of 5 peoples included me. They all car pool with me and we started our journey at 7.30am. Kinda early but actually it’s better. The place is not yet get crowded at this hour.
Badminton Closed 2008/09
A happening weekend with my colleagues last Saturday. I was having a tournament @ The Challenger Sport Centre in the morning. The match is like normal training match. I don’t feel pressure as I just play with my heart. My passionate is still there. It was a knock out game and quite satisfactory with my performance even I didn’t win.
With participation of RM10, I’m entitled with a T-shirt and 2 meals for the day. If I manage to win, I have to play on Sunday as well. Then, 4 meal included. In fact, it was heavily sponsor by the club. Worth it right?
The Challenger Sport Centre
The court is quite nice and clean. I play at this centre every Sat with my usual gang. All of us have improvement since the first day. I trained with them before I go for match that day. It’s a surprise that I manage to cope with my endless energy! Thanks to my regular training at California Centre.
After match, me and Teh decided to give a visit a career fair with Jian and MK. We reached there at 4.30pm.
MCTF 2009 by JobStreet.com
It’s quite effective to look after a job in this fair and able to learn what’s hot in the market. The market for professional worker is on high demand. Engineering and specialist seems to be dominate the entire fair.
We wandered around the mall as CNY is coming nearer, we wish to buy something for ourselves. Jian got bring digicam, so we took photos along the outing.
MidValley Chinese New Year decoration is superb. I haven’t go for others yet, but I believe each of them got their own attraction. We tried to go each of the outlet and departmental store but yet found nothing to buy.
We all go back after the dinner at Ipoh Chicken Rice shop. A simple weekend yet happening and remembered.
Weekend hiking has become my daily routine since I wanted to keep my stamina on-going. This week is kinda different due to my colleagues decided to join me as I always talk about my weekend activity. That’s FRIM (Forest Research Institute Malaysia).
Waterfall @ FRIM
In year 2008, I visited FRIM for more than 10 times. Compare to 2 years ago which is my first time to FRIM, we were bring around by a guide. The place is so strange to me that time. But not nowadays. It’s my routine outing during the weekend.
Carpark is FREE at outside the entrance. If want to drive into FRIM, you need to pay RM5 per car (included driver) and RM1 per person as entrance fees.
Since all my colleagues never been here, I had become a guide to them. It’s fun bringing them to this relaxation place.
Me, Teh, Mun Kit, Simon, Michelle and Lily had joined me. It’s rather easy for some of us as it’s merely took an hour to complete it. Teh is my team member during Eco-Challenge 3 months ago. He is tough in physical stamina, and such hiking look easy for him. In fact, he is looking for a more challenging place. Ermm.
You know what is the purpose for this outing? Simon wanted to train on the stamina before going to Taman Negara (National Park) in this coming March. Not bad since I manage to find more hiking kakis at this moment.
Let’s choose our next hiking destination then. See you there.
