Glastonbury

Glastonbury is a town and civil parish in Somerset, England. It is also the site of the annual Glastonbury Festival, a five-day festival of music and performing arts.

While many attendees camp out on site, some may find it problematic at the last minute and require hotel accommodation.

Glastonbury is a charming rural location with rustic cottages and Edwardian guesthouses, many; a short stroll from the concert venue. Check the location before booking. Many hotels are still available at the last minute at:

Exciting Tokyo

[Tokyo is such an exciting city for anyone from anywhere in the world. It is a mixture of ultra modern and traditional, such as historic temples.

For this city, I have pictures supplied by my friend Ms Kwai Heong on FB. (www.facebook.com/kwai.heong.9) She is also at @kwaiheong on IG. She visited Japan recently.

She captured an amazing set of pictures considering she is deaf or is hearing impaired, I met her in person at a temple a few years ago where she was getting selfies all by herself and we communicated by signing.

Tokyo hotels aren’t always as costly as many assume. Look for Tokyo hotel deals here:

Introducing Busan

With over 3.6 million people, Busan is South Korea’s second largest city and largest seaport. Busan is known for its beaches, hot springs, nature reserves and events such as the city’s renowned international film festival held each fall.

Busan is a good destination for those seeking a more laid back atmosphere than Seoul. The city is located at the southern tip of the Korean peninsula ~ wikitravel.org/en/Busan

Busan became a well known to Malaysians as a location for tourists after the 2016 South Korean zombie apocalypse action thriller “Train to Busan”.

For a different intro to this city, I am using a drawing of the film’s megastar Gong Yoo (stage name) drawn by my friend freelance artist and lawyer by day, Lim Chin Han on Fb and @chinhan10.art.poetry on IG. See her gallery for many more amazing lifelike drawings.

This pic was drawn based on a picture from tv’s “Goblin” – Guardian: The Lonely and Great God.

The intrepid artist is also a fan and walking expert on her idol. She told me Gong Yoo is in fact is from and born in Busan.

The Clock Tower of Fraser’s Hill

I was looking for a decent pic of the roundabout clock tower in Fraser’s Hill and, at last, I found one in Wikimedia.

The stone structure with creeper vines and flower beds was an iconic landmark in front of the golf course, post office, police station and the the former Merlin Hotel. It is the town centre. A favourite selfie background for visitors and something that greets the visitor on arrival.

Magnificent View Of The Main Range

This was the pic I used for Fraser’s Hill contributed by Sharon Teo. (https://www.facebook.com/seaDevilyn)

It is too beautiful to be buried and deserves to be a standalone post. One thing I used to like about Frasers were the many ferns growing wild there.

There was also a mini zoo there and I used to cry for the lonely baby elephant kept in it. Malaysia should ban all private and mini zoos as the animals almost always end up neglected and ill treated. Without the internet at that time, there was no one to complain to or nowhere to highlight her plight except the Malay Mail Hotline. Speak up and say you don’t want to see caged or chained animals.

Great job, Sharon and thank you for sharing the pic used here:
