The Zoo, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia – part 2 of 2

Johor Bahru zoo also has Tigers, Lions, Bears, and Chimps. These animals had better living conditions than the animals near the entrance to the zoo. Tigers are magnificent looking creatures and it was great to be able to see them, however, I am still not happy about them being in a zoo. The only plus […]

Exploring Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia – Bukit Lima Forest Park

Decided to visit the nearest Sarawak Forest National Park to Sibu – Bukit Lima Forest Park. The park is surprisingly close to the town centre, in fact it is only 20 to 30 minutes drive away, assuming you don’t get lost – which I did. The park is tricky to find as it is hidden […]

Wildlife at Tanjung Piai National Park (Taman Negara Tanjung Piai), Malaysia

Some shots, and a video, of some of the wildlife I saw in and around Tanjung Piai National Park (Taman Negara Tanjung Piai), Malaysia. Even though I have been in Malaysia for 6 months now it still amazes me that I can see monkeys and lizards running wild, and bananas growing by the side of […]

A walk, some trees, and some monkeys (and lots of insect bites)

This evening after work I decided to go for a walk through some “gardens” that I found close to my house the other evening. This was a big mistake… I saw some Jackfruits… On the drive home I saw the monkeys again, and I failed yet again to get a decent photograph. On other thing […]

More monkeys….

Where I live I quite often see monkeys beside the road. It seems to be a reasonably large group of around 30 individuals, and I quite often see them whilst driving in and out of the place, particularly in the early morning and the evenings. However, these monkeys are frighteningly difficult to photograph. First, there […]

Dinner at Yeo’s Seafood Restaurant and monkeys on the road

Popped back to Yeo’s for dinner. Not my first time there, and I doubt it will be my last! For dinner I had the sweet and sour prawns, with steamed rice and mixed vegetables. One thing that was a little odd was there were prawns in the mixed vegetables! Is that common? If it is […]
