Two weeks ago I took the train to go back to my hometown coz that Friday is a public holiday (Labour Day). But damn, the train that I took was delayed for more than 1 hour! The train that I took was the Ekspress Rakyat at 2.20pm, but due to some unknown reason, they announced that the train will be delayed till 2.45pm. Ok la… half hour I still can tahan.
So, after half hour, they finally annouced that the train had arrived! Yay!…? By that time, the waiting area already got many people waiting… you can see from the pic above.
Now, this is the worst part. When I reached the platform, I saw that inside that train it is completely dark! I had a very bad feeling that time coz last time I rode a train, the train dont have aircon! So, I go to my coach and see whether that one got light or not. But it also dark. When I went inside, it was like a sauna room! I don’t know how the hell the people inside the coach can sit there and wait. After that I just come out from the train and wait outside. Cant remember how long I waited, but after a while, the train got the light back and I went inside. They manage to get the aircond working! :D Buuuut… the train was not moving. Dont know what was the problem… then light and aircon went off again! o_O Seriously, wtf is wrong with KTMB?!?! So, I went out again to get some ‘fresh’ air.
Since I got nothing to do, I just walk around and took some random pic. The pic above is the locomotive. There is another one at the end of the train, and I think that is the one that causing the problem.
Finally, at around 4, they manage to get the train running again. Luckily, the train is moving this time. They was playing the “The Terminal” movie in the train. But no sound though. :(
After 2hours, I finally arrived at Kampar! It was faster than usual coz it got less stops.
I went for hiking last Sunday. I still cant believe that I actually did it. This is because I never thought of hiking. Well, it is my mom that insisted me to hike with her @_@. But I never regretted it because it is such a wonderful experience!
The place that I went for hiking is actually famous for it waterfall. It is located near Taman Ros (?). The waterfall is located at the upper part of the hill. The journey from the bottom of the hill to the waterfall is about 30 minutes by foot. Along the way to the waterfall, you can see the orang asli settlement. Half way through the waterfall, the road will become narrower and bumpy. So, I highly suggest anyone that planning to go to the waterfall not to take their car with them. ^_^; You can park it at the bottom of the hill.
Anyways, manage to take some pic of the waterfall. Tried some ‘experiment’ for waterfall photography. Hehehe…
This is the best pic that I get. I’ve used a longer exposure time to create that ‘blurry’ water effect. Took me a few times to get that effect. ^_^; I still need to learn a few more trick to get it right. (I’m still not satisfy with it)
This hiking is quite a adventure for me. Would probably go back again if I have time (and not lazy xD)
