Do click here to read an interesting posting by EM Shiek (Blogsite: Variety if the Spice of Life) giving an account of an Englishman from Plymouth, Tony, who came here to look for the bungalow. The bungalow was built by British authorities for their staffs (e.g. Tony's grandfather) for recreation and relaxation on weekends and holidays. Tony's grandfather and grandmother used to stay in the bungalow during the 1920s and took pictures of the bungalow. 

 At around 4:30 p.m. … Having a simple but tasty dinner by the river

 Having a relaxing and nice dip in the cold water after hours of trekking up and down the mountain on a fairly hot day
