Here, a farmer was seen pumping water from his vegetable plot (on right) and discharging the unwelcome flood water into an irrigation canal on left.
I was fascinated by the use of the PTO (power take off) transmission from the drive train of the tractor to power the water suction pump. The multi-tasking and multi use tractor is such a flexible tool for the farmer. Park and pump where it was needed.

Rain or shine, Malaysians are all smiles when they see durians. Amazing how a roadside stall can bring traffic to a standstill.
Upon sighting the durians, many motorists made emergency stops, left their cars haphazardly by the roadside and ran hurriedly to the source of the scent.
Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd, I suppose.

It is no different from any in the big cities. Disarray of satellite dishes, messy utility cables and a few garishly-renovated houses sticking out like sore thumbs.
Except for one thing. In the city, one would automatically assume a neighbour is down with dreaded dengue fever when one sees a big cloud of white fog. Are the authorities doing symbolic fogging again after the mosquitoes have bolted?
Not here, thankfully. The fogging at their doorsteps are low-lying clouds and fresh mountain mist. Now that’s living.

The hills are alive from near Tanjung Malim. Rarely noted are the beautiful hills and mountains visible from the vicinity of Tanjung Malim, Behrang and Proton City.
Yesterday, there was two hours of heavy downpour in Tanjung Malim but it didn’t dampen my spirits. I knew the the post-rain landscape will be spectacular.
True enough, the resulting mountain fog, mists and bluish hues were breathtaking. Was expecting Julie Andrews to come from behind the grass.
