Ran back to KKB for a few days with me.
Thanks to Antares for his assistance & hospitality, and some doses of insight. He lives in a Temuan village on the road to Fraser’s Hill.
I also managed to watch What About Me, a superb musical docudrama about our humanity.
Car floor, Day 1
Took my time gettin to d destination.
Giant statue, Buddhist Monastery
Happy dog, monastery
My trusted partner
Water from earth. Tastes different
Do it! Jump! At ancient Bailey Bridge high over Chilling River
Trekked down to have food under d bridge. Wild boar curry. Mm mmm mmhh!
Finally arrived at d village and got attacked by 8 psycho pups. Got teeth marks all over me
D cutie from my last visit still around, BrownSugar
Next morning ditched the wheels in KKB town before dawn, to hike back to the village.
Da road, with the silhouette of the monstrous dam wall in the background
Had three dogs for company for awhile. Friendly dudes. Shared some food
A long walk
Chillin at a fucking high bridge. Great spot for bungee
View from fucking high bridge. The river is superb for rafting. Class 3 & 4 rapids
Scene of a forest fire just a few weeks back. The forest regenerates real quick
Had a drink outta every stream i met
Got back to my hut to another charge by d welcoming committee
Enjoyed a second breakfast-in-hammock
Hut’s fire-escape hatch, complete with fireman’s pole
My pad. D lampshade’s an ol straw hat. Haha
Found many great quiet spots upriver of the village to chill at. Skinny-dipped too
D closest ‘fridge’ for miles
“Get me outta here!” Not smiling anymore eh? Gave d pups a bath coz they had fleas
Givin pathetic look
Dis dude suffered bath trauma. Scared n tried to hide from me for awhile cos i gave him a bath!
Lil fuckers soon recovered n took their revenge on my flops
Unfortunately for me, d pups are available for adoption, so they’ll probably be gone on my next visit.
Was great knowing them.
Had to peel myself outta there. Was supposed to hang only three days. But for five days, i never knew the time. Haha. Liberating.
Love the pictures and your story , Deep. When i looked at some of the pictures it gave such a calm feeling to my heart. The puppies are so cute!! love, love, love it!!! I feel like going to KKB now:-) Thx for sharing!!
Sure, no prob.
Dude, is it even legal to go skinny dipping? I was searching for a place to do so, but didnt come across any.
Legal? Haha! R u serious? Depends man. According to the fuckin govt, its probably illegal, but i dont care. Who are they to tell me how to chill when am alone? In dat case, they shd arrest all of us d second we’re born, coz we born naked. Society has made nudity evil, and bad, and sick.
There’s this offense (i know of via experience!), called “Berkelakuan tidak senonoh di khalayak ramai”, which i guess means behaving indecently in public. They could nail u for dat (assuming u were like in PUBLIC). U could just pay d fine, or fight it in court.
The deeper in d forest u go, d more likely u can skinny dip coz there wont b a soul around. Except d trees n rivers n animals. Who I’AM SURE dont mind
Lol, wonderful. Thinking of heading there this weekend? Any tips on finding this place?
Is it on route 55 from google maps?
Yea man, its federal Route 55. Enjoy!
is the any place to stay at kkb ? or you’d have to bunk in at antares’ place ?
i bet the stars at night are still mesmerizing.
been there ages ago (back in 98/99) and been longing since..
hope you did check out lubuk pusing mate.
Yea, he has space for his guests. There are places to stay in town, but its not d same thing. U cd always camp near d river. Stars are awesome on a clear nite. U shd go again.
Not sure abt lubuk pusing. Dont know d names of d spots i swam at
Freakin’ awesome dude! So near to KL oso can find peace. I gotta get me some of this action.
Yea man, dis place is da shit
Haha. My friend the Marlboro Man of Malaysia. Cool report on your 5-day retreat, Deep! Next time let me know lah when you post stuff like this… found it “by accident” more than a year later thru Joyce… 😉
Haha! Thanks to you. Ok, will do, but there’ve been quite a few! Just search “kkb” if u wanna view them
