If the castle was allowed to be completed, it will be one heck of a house.

The tourists reception area is on one side of a river while the castle is on the other side. A walking bridge linked both sides.

About 70 km North of Sungkai is the town of Batu Gajah where you will find Kellie's Castle. An uncompleted castle of a Scotsman. The grounds have been beautified with tourists in mind.

That night after going back to the pools, we all got dressed to have dinner at the main cafe. Food is fine. If you want to eat out of the resort you need to drive out and it could be a distance before you find a decent restaurant.

I took a picture of a palm tree being bathed with a spotlight. Looks eerie doesn't it.

A close up of the tall buildings. Interesting designs.

A close up of the ornate bridge.

Here as well you will find a very ornate bridge linking the opposite sides of the lake.

On this part of the lake, you are allowed to use motorised water vehicles.

At this location one can also find the tallest buildings in Putrajaya. These are for 4 different Ministries such as Multimedia & Telecommunication etc.

Last Sunday took a lazy watch along Putrajaya Lake. The weather was overcast which made it a perfect walking environment with strong winds whipping across the body of water. Over the horizon you can see the Maritime Sports Complex (to the left).

The area outside the cave entrance.

Although not that obvious but its quite a drop from where we were standing.

As go deeper into the hill, it gets cooler and fresh cool wind can be felt. Underground rivers help circulate the air.

It is estimated that the height from the floor and the ceiling the cave spans 10 stories high!

The colours on the walls were breathtaking.

After lunch, we decided to head towards Gua Tempurung.The cave is located in Lembah Tempurung (Tempurung Valley) near Gopeng, Perak, Malaysia. It is 25 km to the south of Ipoh, the capital of the state of Perak. The cave was first identified in 1887 in the Map of Perak-Malay Peninsula, which indicated a mountain spelt as “Gunong Tempoo Rong”. The Department of Minerals and Geosciences estimated the age of the rock formations in the area of Gua Tempurung to be between 250 and 400 million years. The cave was also known locally as Gua Perah. Large and intricate cave system with beautiful speleotherms like stalagmites, stalactites, rim stone pools, curtains, straws, calcite crystals and pillars. These and more form the natural limestone cave architecture. The most commonly known formations are stalagmites (growing on the cave floor) and stalactites (growing on the cave ceiling or wall). For more information go to: http://www.guatempurung.com/ The biggest cave system in Peninsular Malaysia. You can spend hours walking through the various chambers that make up the cave system.

Tables and chairs for the guests.

Two goats were roasting...

Last Saturday was my parent's open house for Raya. Over 200 guests came. Had to cater due to the crowd. Did it stall style.

The water that comes out of the source is well over 100 degree Celsius (it is possible to be hotter than boiling as minerals in the water increased the boiling point to exceed the boiling point of pure water).

A plaque commemorating the opening of the resort back in May 2005 from the then Deputy Prime Minister Dato' Sri Najib.

Sprawling property. Loads of open spaces to play football and such.
