Lotus Offical Club Malaysia  (LOCM) recently organised a drive to our National park (Taman Negara).
It was planned to be full of activities and  totally  different from the usual ,drive, eat and sleep.
Having the attention span of a  gnat ,this sounded interesting

Great weather...

Got a bogey on my tail...

This was my sedate speed. Seriously .
Sedate !!!
Comparatively that is .

Wide body  :-)

Soon we turned off the highway...

A short stop to regroup.
For once my car is in front.

Mean machines.

All eyes on McYellow .

A beauty. Its a spyder .See.....

On to the B roads.

I thought it will be slower now...

Ha ha ha.  I was soooooo wrong.

Beautiful roads.

Fossil fuel time.

Lovely cars.

A real beauty.

All of them.

Sleeper..... if you get it :-)

Peek a boo

Now on to the C roads.

A familiar name...ha ha ha

Oil palm estates...

Windy and narrower.

With great scenery.

My co-pilot did a great job of taking pics.

Look at the road.

Driving heaven.

Nice huh.

Literally a milli-second before impact  :-)

But the views man....

Look at THAT !!!!


Before noon we reached the river mouth.

And the main town.

Han's hotel  :-P

Eye candy .

Back to our floating restaurant.

For a very nice local lunch.
Subsequently in the afternoon its back to the hotel and rest a bit.

We go back to the river via tuk-tuk  :-)

For a boat trip...

To go see a waterfall.

You sit really low...


We will be here later.

Co-pilot.  :-)

Imagine...we are a car club.

What a great activity.

Different and interesting.


This part of the river the water  is clear.

Many many rocks.

That's causing the white tops.

Calmer here...

Finally we reach the end.

Us   :-)

Now to hike...

2 km through a jungle trail

Nice clear water.

Sensing her prey weakening ,she charges in for the kill  :-P

Finally reached ,panting and sweating.

Low water though .

The swimming hole.

I jumped in and realised there was no bottom .

So , found a rock and stayed there...newbie :-( 

Its extends down a bit.

See the waterfall  :-)  see  ha ha ha. Kanan la oooi

Oh wait , a better pic...ha ha ha

Natural seating gallery...

After about a hour and another hike its back to the boats.

To a fish sanctuary

Where we get to feed the fish...

All kids at heart  :-)

After all the activities , we needed to sit and have a drink..... 

After a nice break....

Its time for dinner...

Across the river....

Damage  from the previous floods.....
