we travelled to Ipoh on a weekend many many many months ago *shifty eyes*. one of the activity on the list beside marathon eating, was visiting one of the caves. i have been to most of the famous ones, but not the boyf. it’s his freaking first time. duh failed Malaysian.
i turned him down once during the previous trip cos the weather was unforgivingly searing hot. and he’s lucky that the weather god showed some mercy this time, gloomy day, perfect (for me). that time he just acquired Nika (the dslr), so i was fiddling it trying to snap some shots which you are about to see below! *points down*
it’s quite a distance from Ipoh town. i napped throughout the journey. i remembered there’s a row of shops selling pomelo nearby!
no entrance fee is required!
i’ll just let the pictures do all the talking as i’m pretty incoherent now at 2.30 am.
us finding weird-shaped stalactites. it’s really cooling, peaceful and serene inside the cave.
when stalactites meets stalagmite, when two becomes one. spot the heart flare!
The cave complex comprises a central altar featuring a number of Buddhist figures as well as various deities of the Chinese pantheon.
Surrounded by stunning stalactites and stalagmite formations, the cave provides a peaceful prayer site for Buddhist devotees and general enjoyment for the public. (source)
what amazed us was, this, picturesque garden behind the cave. 世外桃源 is the only phrase to describe. pardon my limited English vocab. :/
apparently this has won a few landscape awards. totally deserving.
we took a nice stroll around the garden.
the love bird.
hibiscus, our national flower!
nature lover i am! hehe
