Whoa that handsome lizard! You have good photographic eyes you know..We've been here 8 years ago when my brother lived in Tg Malim..
Wah Oldstock..dan jugak buat National Geographic Discovery quickie!Great snapshots!!Beautiful and so cooling!
Fadhil,The moth is actually a butterfly and a Rajah Brooke no less. It is on every butterfly collectors wish list. You are lucky to have caught a picture of it.
We used to stop at Tg Malim years ago, before the highway made travelling north just one long never-ending road.It would be time for a walkabout, a loo-stop for the little ones, and a chance to grab a bite to eat, while Chuan got the chance for an uninterrupted smoke!(He's a good boy now: sudah berhenti ;)How things have changed now. But, it seems that the place is just as lovely.Nice pix :)
Hliza,I was wondering if anybody out there knows the name of this species of lizard. I could hold my camera quite close to it and it didn't run away.The area now is more accessible than before because the track has been tarred. Previously, access was by 4WD only.
mamasita,Belum layak untuk Nat Geo lagi... tunggu sat lagi I beli dSLR, baru canggih sikit :-)
Pak Zawi,Thanks for pointing out my error. Just shows my shallow knowledge about insects. I have corrected the caption.
Pat,The other regular stop for travelers at Tanjung Malim is Yik Mun pau coffee shop.Tanjung Malim is a nice quite town. My brother-in-law plans to retire there when his service ends next year.
..salam, oldstock...love that pic of Raja Brooke..
I know the existence of our own local flying lizards (lizards with wings) but yellow lizards is beyond my knowledge! Does anyone here mind to share their thoughts? >.<
Salam Pak Mat,The butterfly was resting near the water's edge when I took the shot. Didn't know it was a Rajah Brooke until Pak Zawi corrected my error.
Rina,I've been trying to google this lizard for the past few days but have not yet found an image that is similar.
Woah, the lizard migrate to here issit? Hahaha..We are welcoming you Liz! :)
Wahhh... the river looks clean! Might consider going there for a mini-holiday? How far away is it from KL? Pardon my ignorance, I was never good at geography.
Aizan,Tanjung Malim is about 80km from KL on the N-S highway. From the toll exit, you head to Tg Malim town on the by-pass road. The turn-off to this particular place is on the right, just before the UPSI traffic lights.Don't forget to stop by the Gardens Restaurant for dinner. It's on the main road going north, just outside the town, on the right-hand side. Definitely worth it.
