Happy Halloween

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on October 31. It is largely a secular celebration. Irish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to America during Ireland's Great Famine of 1846.

This festival marked the end of pleasant summers and the beginning of bitter cold. These people believed in evil spirits and witchcraft and thought that they get loose on Earth and roam about on the night before New Year in search of preys and victims. Thus, they painted their faces and wear terrible costumes to frighten away these ghosts and witches so that they would not harm them and their cattle and crops.

Conquering Broga Hill

For all you city slicker who fancy a walk and feel the cool breezy wind blowing on your face, Bukit Broga is the place to go.

Broga is a small town that sits on the border of Selangor and Negeri Sembilan in Malaysia. It is situated 50 kilometres (31 mi) from Kuala Lumpur and approximately 33 kilometres (21 mi) from Seremban , the capital of Negeri Sembilan.

Broga takes its name from the River Broga which runs through the area. The name Broga is believed to be derived from Buragas, a mythical beast that lives in the forest.

Recently I had the chance to go up to the place with few of the my friends and here is some of the photos of the place.

Broga Hill has a fantastic view, if you go up early in the morning you will able to catch the sunrise and watch the sunset in the evening.

Here is the video I found on youtube about the place enjoy...

Charles Brooke Memorial @ Kuching

The Brooke Memorial is just in front the Court House and opposite the water front. The 6 meter high granite obelisk was commissioned in 1924 to honor, Rajah Charles Brooke. Behind the memorial was the colonial baroque Clock Tower added in 1883.

There is also writing about Charles Brooke when he born, date he ruled Sarawak and the year he past away in English, Iban, Chinese and Jawi.

At the corner of the obelisk is a bronze panel of four figures representing the main races Chinese, Dayak, Kayan and Malay of Sarawak.

Sorry for some of the photos, I didn't notice the camera hood is blocking some part of the photos till I check when I reach home. I'll be back soon to recapture the whole place again.
