This is not the usual stuff I upload on Flickr but I couldn't resist all that red. This is a fruit perhaps endemic to Borneo. I haven't seen this in in Peninsular Malaysia. My mom was drying them to use in our traditional dishes here in the northern part of Borneo. The seed is sweet . The outer part of the fruit is dried and has a very sour taste when rehydrated in soups or sauces. I cant quite describe the smell,suffice to say that that it's unique...Reminded me of sun dried tomatoes!!hehehe...

It's a public holiday here in Malaysia and we will have 4 days off work including the weekend. Yehaaahh!!!

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri to all moslems celebrating and have a great weekend to all in Flickrland!

Heliconia at Kipandi Butterfly Park. Psittacorum type but I do not know the species. Kind of spooky when they are old.

I live 12 km away from this spot but I never knew of it's existence till last sunday 7.2.2016. Such a pretty river! I just had to go back the next day and take another shot!!

This was one of those days I wished I was standing somewhere beautiful waiting for the sun to rise. When the sky started to show those colours, I just had to hit the brakes, get out of the car and get a couple of shots! Maybe this is crap,but it's the moment people! hehehe...

Sunset at Jalan Pintas Highway Penampang

The town caters largely to tourists coming this way en route to Kelip-Kelip at Kampung Kuantan or local travellers on a trail of seafood binging. Kuala Selangor town is not particularly big and one can easily walk around without a map or a guide. There are a number of cheap food outlets and a couple of fast food joints. It is also possible to walk to the Kuala Selangor Nature Park and Bukit Melawati for a visit.

 

Kuala Selangor is an old royal capital of Selangor. It was conquered by the Dutch in 1784, when they successfully attempted to expand from their base in Melaka to control the tin trade of Perak and Selangor.

 

Bukit Melawati is a hill overlooking Kuala Selangor and the Strait of Malacca. The Dutch destroyed the existing fortifications on the hill during their 1784 invasion, and built a European-style castle, naming it Fort Atlingsburg after their commander. The fort was fought over repeatedly by the Dutch, Sultanate of Selangor and later the British, until all that remains today are some scattered ruins.

 

Taman Alam Kuala Selangor (Kuala Selangor Nature Park) is a forest reserve with an area of 2.4 square kilometres just outside town on the estuary of the Sungai Selangor river. It is known for its mangrove swamps and variety of birds. There is also a firefly park in Kuala Selangor which allows visitors to go in a boat along the river to see the fireflies. A restaurant is located outside the Firefly Park for convenience.

 

Seafood restaurants are located in a small fishing town called Pasir Penampang after the bridge spanning the Selangor River. The seafood restaurants in Pasir Penampang serves halal seafood. Located within Pasir Penampang, there is a small seafood market where villagers as well as tourists come to buy seafood which are freshly caught by the fishermen who berth at the nearby pier.

5 RAW Bracketing Exposures

Actually our Ursus malayanus, Sun or Honey Bear, doesn't like the sun very much; it's basically nocturnal. Here it's sitting just on the edge of the very bright Borneo sun and the comforting darkness of its barrel. If you look carefully, you can see some of its distinctive characteristics: the orange, horseshoe marking on its chest; the smooth, orange soles of its feet (apparently more useful for climbing trees than the 'padded' ones of other bears). And with a bit of imagination you might see that its skin is looser than that of other bears; thus it can, as it were, kind of twist around in it when a predator tries a grab.

I waited for a while but couldn't get a good view of Honey Bear's long, thin tongue, a useful instrument for raiding bee's nests. In Malay it is not without reason called Beruang Madu, Honey Bear.

No, it's not drying its finger nails.

This photo was taken in the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. A delightful place to spend a day. Lots of 'local' animals; and don't skip the fine Botanical Garden at the back!
