There was a bad landslide at an orang asli settlement at Kampung Sungai Ruil near Brinchang, Cameron Highlands at 5.50pm yesterday after heavy rain.
Seven people were killed and two people were injured.
The Star reported that during the incident, the village was hit by an avalanche of logs, earth and debris which swept down a hill, burying the victims alive.
This is the second landslide to hit an orang asli settlement.
15 years ago, 40 villagers were killed in Pos Dipang in Perak.
On the 18th July, I visited the Taiping Lake Garden ( Taman Tasik Taiping ) in Perak on the way back to KL from Butterworth, Penang.
The place is very, very, very beautiful.
The Taiping Lake Gardens is the first public garden established during British rule in Malaysia.
They started to plant the garden with grasses, flowers and trees in 1884.
Now there are many beautiful big, old trees along the road in the garden.
When we drove pass, I fell like going into a tree tunnel 😉
All of the trees are more than 100 years old.
Lots of the branches of the huge trees bend towards the lake and their leaves touch the water 🙂
I wish that I can go there again and stay at the hotel around the park so that I can spend more time watching and make drawings of the trees 🙂
