With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.

    29th December 2008, this is where I was, I went to Bukit Tabur to get myself away from the city, far away from work, I just wanted to breathe with empty mind, thinking of nothing but to reach to the peak of this hill. It was raining when we arrived the hillside, 7am. We were 50/50 to decide whether to go for it or not. Well, we decided to take a special opportunity of this rainy trip up. Wet, slippery, cold and misty... Definitely adventurous than normal.

    Kuala Kubu Bharu Waterfall

    This waterfall is cool, the water flushing is really strong and fun. The idea of going to this waterfall is to get the total jungle adventures kind of feeling. Being out of the big city, traveling and trekking up hill. Listening to the beautiful sounds of nature. When we were trekking up looking for the waterfall, the water splashing sounds were already been heard and brought all the excitement even before we actually saw the waterfall. Kuala Kubu Bharu itself, is quite a small country sites, where there are still people and community there maintaining the whole place.

    Aurora

    Aurora Province is located on the East-Central side of Luzon Island in the Philippines. Many of its municipalities were once part of Quezon Province. Aurora became an official province in 1979. This is why when I told some friends I went to Aurora, they said, “Oh you went to Quezon.” I had to correct them.
