Taiping & CH, August 2006
Here is a very belated report about a trip to Taiping and the Cameron Highlads, made in 2006, 15 years ago! In those days Khong Tuck Koon, Stephen Boey, George Tan and I had formed a group, the Gang of Four, with interest in traveling, nature, bbirdwatching, waterfalls and food, not necessarily in that order. Here is a report about our first Gang of Four trip to Southern Thailand 14-16 August 2005.
I don't remember why I never wrote a report about our second trip. We stayed one night in Taiping and one night in Brinchang and Henry Hor, a friend, joined us this time.

After so many years, details have become a bit vague. After brealfast in Batu Gajah we visited the Kinta Nature Park. Recently I had bought a compact camera with 12x zoom, so I tried to take pictures of birds myself.

We also visited a small waterfall where? and then continued to Taiping, where we had lunch in Casual Market and had booked accommodation in the Fuliyan Hotel. After some rest we went out for cendol at Ansari and did some birding, but where? We had dinner in Soon Lee and later a snack (apom) near the Lake Gardens.
