My parents' cell group had a cell outing yesterday. It was basically a family trip consisting of about 25 of us (adults and children) to get back in touch with Mother Nature and spend time together. I took a ton load of pictures and I finally finished filtering through all of them, picking the ones I would like to show you and uploaded them here. *wipes seat off brow*
We went to two places. The first one was an Agarwood plantation somewhere in Gopeng. If you are not familiar with Agarwood, try Google-ing it and read about this evergreen, highly useful and valuable tree. It's used for perfume and incense sticks among the many things. Apparently the latest discovery of the nutrition value of its leaves has made Agarwood plants prices soar.
Next, we went to a Bird Park in Batu Gajah. It is actually an old tin mining land but now some parts have been turned into fish farms, duck farms, prawn farms and the like. There are many lakes there for fishing and it's a good place for bird-watching. It is also scenic and good for pictures. Let me show you the pictures from there:-
you'll see the white specks on the ground are actually birds)
Some of them brought binoculars and as I was looking through them and spying on the birds, I really wished I had powerful zoom lenses to take clear pictures of the birds. Haha!! I was quite envying a few of the DSLRs around me which were busy snapping snapping. Anyway, I did the best I could with my Canon Compact. Click on them to see the full size and see if you can spot birds in the pictures:-
After the bird watching session, we got back into the cars and went to Tanjung Tualang for a seafood dinner. But I will have to update that on my next post since this has been a super long post. Keep an eye open for my next post (click here to read) alright. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!!
