Peninsular Malaysia

An amazing phenomenon in Selangor River. Note how the river - yellow because of its heavy sediment load from land clearing activity upstream - temporarily turns wonderfully blue, and then back to "warna teh tarik" (tea with milk color). How so??

 

Perhaps the bulldozer operators in an upstream land development site had a tea break?
