Finally found time to edit some photos from our Mossy Forest, Cameron Highlands, Malaysia sojourn. Some photos were layered with textures from DeviantArt 🙂
If you’re a photographer, and you have a lens that can take macro shots, then Cameron Highlands is one of the best destinations to go and lose yourself in all things tiny in Malaysia. I bet the whole country has lots of little big wonders to shoot and document, and I’m just glad ate Lolit lent me her macro lens to be able to take a few.
Some photos here were shot at the Mossy Forest, the others at Bala’s Chalet & Restaurant, and two from ate Lolit’s own garden at Desa Park 🙂
An hour’s ride from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia is Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi in Pahang rising some 2,500 feet above sea level. It’s the closest one, who has never been to France, can get to experience a little bit of the lifestyle of the French people.
Colmar Tropicale, located in Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, is a replica of a collection of buildings from a north-eastern village in France dating back to the 16th Century. The French themed resort was opened in July 2000. It’s surrounded by tropical forest land.
The theme hotel is made up of eight blocks of architectural wonder, each with its unique style, from its colourful roof tiles to cobblestone ground. The hotel has several outlets, where you can dine in the French way. Central to the village is Colmar Square where the aroma of the blooms will tantalise your senses. There are fountains and park benches in the square for relaxation after a hard day’s work browsing in the 17 theme shops, or should one wish to take a breather from participating in the various activities. The drawbridge reminiscent of ancient castles, clock tower with an original cuckoo bird clock, and the viewing tower complements the ambience.
That’s according to Wikipedia 🙂 I had to Google because when I was there, there was no chance to talk to someone and ask how it came to be without disturbing the need for me to take photos everywhere I turn.
The place is so wonderful!
My body is still adjusting from the hangover of Malaysia… I seriously think. I can’t sleep yet and it’s over 2 a.m.
Posting another photo that’s the result of our workshop on photography with Kenvin Pinardy and Rarindra Prakarsa. I’m overwhelmed meeting these two photography icons in Asia.
I just came from a trip to several places in Malaysia; one of them Kuala Lumpur. My particular interest in the place was to chase the blue hour. The last time I was in KL, we arrived late and the lights on the twin towers were already off.
In this recent visit however, I had a stroke of luck. Caught it just at the right time with my party of 3 other photographers, a stylist and her daughter.
The twin towers look elegant during this particular time of day. Love it.
