Plus Highway Gua Tempurung Rest Stop

There were many Rajah Brooke Birdwing (Trogonoptera brookiana) butterfly with striking green and black colour around Gua Tempurung Rest Area. Spotted a group of them near the water. Unfortunately most of them flew away when I went too near with my camera.
I stopped at the Gua Tempurung, Perak rest area during one of my trip back from the northern states. Since we were not in a rush, I decided to explore the area with my family. Actually there is a nice stream behind this rest area and I saw a few families having a picnic there. Then I took the Char Kueh Teow and Nasi Lemak that I bought from my favourite hawker stalls back in my hometown and had a picnic there too with my family! LOL! This is the first time we explore and enjoy the gifts of nature along the Plus Highway. Nowadays, we are living our life just like in the highway fast lane. Sometimes it is good to slow down for a while and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer!

Yea, I agree with you. Life is like the fast lane highway, we're always on the rush, trying to get to the destination, but we did not realize that we missed out a lot of things by being on the highway.

ps: Calvin andI are planning to raid your kitchen for food when he is in KL. Apa macam, Pete...boleh? LOL.

Yes, stop and smell the roses... Claire, leeches are good - remove the bad blood. There's a clinic here...treatment using leeches.
