let there be electricity. our very own micro hidro ;)

We worked together with Sirim to construct a micro hidro at our dusun. yay! It was officiated by Sirim's big boss Dato' Ir Dr Yahya also fondly known as Pak Ya on 21st Feb 2011.

Here's the host and owner of this beautiful sanctuary giving his speech to the guests at the officiating event.

And the ribbon is cut! 

 Plaque signed!

Kodak moment for everyone involved :)

Then, apa lagi? Soru ler!! Delicious food catered especially for the event from Kuala Lumpur. 
Food served on banana leaf rice, bertambah la selera! 

Compliments to the chef, wife of the owner of Lembah Temir, who also owns Mamadeedee restaurant in Mutiara Damansara.

Welcome to Lembah Temir

Imagine green tapestry of orchard trees, the loud gush of natural three tiered waterfall, and the breeze that follows its path. Paradise on earth. Even the sound of waterfall could be so cooling, and of course oh so calming. A secret to be experienced. By the lucky ones :)

These pictures were taken during the early days when dad bought the orchard, so there were no 'infrastructures' (YET!! it's soooo different now). It was love at first sight for him. And the rest of the family too!

 Many types of durians trees, there are more than 100 durian trees here! The most popular ones are here too...Musang King / Mousan King! Yum! You should try eating the durians while being in the water. So you don't feel the usual 'heat' that usually happens when you down loads of durians!

This is the mud pond. These days it is filled with 'domesticated' kois and talapia fish! They're extremely friendly, so friendly you can actually pet them.


 One of the views of the waterfall. Back then, we couldn't even get up there. Thank God now we have stairs! No more treacherous route :) Safe for everyone. One can even get 'massaged' by the falling water...

Some of the flora and faunas found there. Very pretty.

Aahhh...relax and lose yourself in awe of Allah's beautiful creation. I meant]] the waterfall. Not that person in blue (dia tengah feeling)

The upstairs 'lagoon'

Located a mere 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur, it is close enough for a short get aways. For our family, it's more of a weekly thing. A place to chill and relax, enjoy the bounty from the trees, while immersing in the pool of cool waters coming from the waterfall.
