Photo Round Up – Week 89 & 90

10 photo round up of what I saw/did these last 2 weeks.

Hope you all enjoy them.


Manila Skyline

Manila, for some reason when I think of Manila I think impoverished city with lots of slums. I arrived and was surprised at how developed it is. This is only a portion of the Manila skyline. All over the city you see new gleaming skyscrapers reaching up to the sky with many shopping malls and clubs and bars. Even though I thought it was a pretty city, for some reason I never felt safe there & then on my 2nd to last day there, something crazy happened that I will write about soon.

KL Tower in Kuala Lumpur

This is a shot of the Kuala Lumpur Tower from below. The KL Tower is the 7th tallest telecommunication tower in the world. It reaches a height of 421-metre (1,381-foot). It has an observation deck and a rotating restaurant with a 360 view of the city. It was nice to visit the observation deck & see KL from above.

Kuala Lumpur from above.

This is a shot of Kuala Lumpur from the top of the KL Tower (the 6th tallest communication tower in the world). Like Manila I was shocked to see how developed and clean Kuala Lumpur was. I know it had the Petronas Twin Towers, but before this I really had no clue what to expect from this amazing city. I was easily fallin for it, because of it’s great street food and mixture of so many cultures (Muslims, Hindus and many others).

Petronas Twin Towers.

I rarely post pics of me in the round ups, but some random guy came up and asked if I wanted a picture of the towers & I and well I said yes. This is what he took & well wow… it couldn’t be more perfect. I love that he catpured the top pf the building and perfectly with the base of my shorts. Anyway so yes that is the Petronas Twin Towers behind me… one of the must beautiful buildings I have ever seen. They were also the tallest buildings in the world from 1998-2004.

Reflection of the Petronas Twin Towers.

I love reflection shots & love that after walking around the Petronas Twin Towers for a while I was able to see this reflection of the towers in the pond.


Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur

This is the Batu Caves a limestone hill, which has a series of caves and cave temples. The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It also holds the worlds largest statue of Lord Murugan standing at 42.7 meters (140ft) high. This statue is impressive… it’s just really so big. Oh & the hike up to the cave is a long exhausting hike as well. KL is reminding me of India & kinda love it!!!

Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

This is a shot of the Robinson Waterfall one of many around the Cameron Highlands. For some reason I’m not a big waterfall fan and wondered why I had avoided many and then it clicked I was chasing a waterfall the day I was held at gunpoint in Costa Rica and think subconsciously my mind just won’t let me near them. I am happy though I did make it out to see this one, cus I thought it was beautiful.

Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

There I was sitting down talking to girls I bumped into at the waterfall above and then walks a women in a full niqab doing the same trek/path I had just taken. I thought wow & scrambled for my camera to capture this shot. I just love it… they are just like us. I say that, because many people see a women in niqab & feel different towards them. The truth is they are just like us just a lot more devote to their God and is why they cover up.

Mosy Forest, Cameron Highlands

Finally after days of raining I was able to book my tour to the Mosy forest and Boh Tea Plantation. This is a shot of the Mosy Forest. It’s one of the must see while you are in the Cameron Highlands. It’s a very interesting walk/hike through a forest completely covered with this green mose thanks to the high elevation. As you walk through it’s just very eerie… like you are walking through a natural haunted forest.

Boh Tea Plantation, Cameron Highlands

During my stay in the Cameron Highlands I was able to visit the largest tea plantation in Southeast Asia: BOH Tea Plantation. It was amazing to see over 8000 acres of land planted with tea. It was also interesting to see how the tea is processed & made. This is my favorite photo from my tour of the plantation.

  1. I remember your post , in which you said about your trip in costa rica where the son of that owner had held you on Gun point, but now this experience would make you feel that You are strong enough to get these situations.
