    Default August 2012 Fraser's Hill

    Thanks Khew and Shirley for organizing the trip, Irene for preparing our delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner which gave us enough energy for hunting butterfly out in the field, Patrick, Sunny and Chng for the great company and Chng for the transport. It has been a fun and eventful trip, from saman (my bad ), long jam at the checkpoint, black out and star gazing at the resort, and learn a few tips on eating steak .

    We headed north to Ipoh first on 8th August and made a pit stop at Gua Tempurung. It was a pleasant surprise seeing Cher Hern and Teo at Gua Tempurong though we knew about their trip. Unfortunately all of us were too engrossed in chasing butterfly and forgot to take a group photo. Soon we parted our ways. After that we continued our journey to Ipoh. Dinner was at the famous Lou-Wong bean-sprout chicken. Breakfast on 9th Aug was the delicious dim-sum at Ming-Kok before we headed south to Fraser's Hill.

    Ok, some photos first. Guys,feel free to post your photos in any sequence, I am just being long-winded.

    Beautiful shots, Khew
    So, you manage to nail the Red Spot Sawtooth too. Chasing this skittish fella and trying to get a good shot, this guy literally made Sunny and I rolling on the sand

    Thanks. This was shot with the Chocolate Albatross just taking off in the background and cropped off. Actually, both of you had great opportunities, if not for the Chocolate Albatrosses that kept blocking the Sawtooth! Sunny wanted to that bugger!
