That chap in the yellow frame there is a tapir. Tapir, a nocturnal hoofed mammal with a stout body, sturdy limbs, and a short flexible proboscis, is native to the forests of tropical America and Malaysia. Tapir is officially classified as endangered or vulnerable species. Sign like this can only be found up in the Titiwangsa Range, on East West Highway connecting the state of Kelantan and small town of Grik, Perak in Peninsular Malaysia. The highway itself, being the highest highway in Malaysia, is expose to marauding wild animals like tapirs, elephants, deers and even wild boars. I found other unique signs with elephant and deer in the frames. However, this one I liked best.

Treasured morning in Kudat, Sabah at around 4.30am. I waited for hours just to see sunrise on this side of the South China Sea. I found beautiful skies and a lonely boat, braving the ocean to find sea treasures for the day: fishes.
I realize that this is suppose to be my welcome post here in wordpress. So, hi and I will try my best to share everything that I can think of on travel. I might post pictures and not saying anything, or I might ramble on places I have been before, or I might share my experiences while I was on the road, I might suggest places to go, I might also ramble on other things apart from travel and lastly I might not even post anything for months. We’ll see I stick to which one 😉
