Sungai Lembing Tour

LV Part 3 - On Day3 morning (22 April 2013, Monday), the Zhineng Qigong group woke up at 2:00 a.m. getting ready for another different outing. This time, we left Lucky Valley (LV) for Sungai Lembing (LB) to see sunrise.

The specially chartered coach, which has been parked there since arrival at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, departed at 3:00 a.m. as planned.

The journey to LB required 2.5 hours; the group have a simple biscuit-and-packet-Milo breakfast in the bus 30 minutes before reaching LB.

The group started the ascent at 5:45 a.m. and arrived at the top of the Panorama Hill at 6:30 a.m. – a superb timing ready to view sunrise.

 Beautiful ray of light

The sea of mist/clouds below the coloured sky

 On the other side of the Panorama Hill is a totally different scene … the misty effect
 A light tint of blush on the right of photo frame
 After the first ray of light, we thought that would be end of the sunrise. We were surprise that the sun turned into golden egg yoke – what a unique scene!
 According to the locals who have tried a few times to view sunrise, today’s scene is beautiful. We must be lucky … after visiting Lucky Valley … :-) At 7:15 a.m. the sky becomes bright and almost all the people have descended the hill.
 The signature old tree of LB town (which is just in front of the market place)
 On the left is the market place. This is the road that leads to the Panorama Hilltop.
 Visiting the famous noodles shop – the unique method of mixing the dough. 
The rod is pivoted at one end and a worker – in this case, our male model – bounced up and down to compress the dough … :-)
The correct method is to stand on one leg and using the thigh area to press the rod down.
Do not practise at home without any supervision as wrong method may cause unnecessary injury (say, standing on two legs to press the rod down) … :-) 
 Suspension Bridge – connecting the village to the main road. The group return after buying the local produces. 
 ALL THE HAPPY FACES – Visiting Gua Charas which is 30 minutes out of LB town en route to Kuala Lumpur.

We arrived at Genting Toll at 5:00 p.m.; due to traffic jam at Middle Ring Road 2, we finally arrived at USJ Taipan at 6:30 p.m.
