continue 1600 Pandas in Malaysia

1600 papier- mâché pandas has visited ...

(1st. Postcard) Malaysia has its own version of leaning tower. The Anson Leaning Tower (Menara Jam Condong) is located in Teluk Intan (or known as Teluk Anson) in Perak. The design of the tower is influenced by Chinese architecture. The tower was built in 1885 and it was used to store water for the dry season. During Japanese Occupation in Malaya, the tower was used as an observation post. The tower started to tilt five years after its construction and the reason that the tower leans towards southwest are due to soft ground on which it was built.

The tower resembles an eight - tier Chinese pagoda with a huge clock that keeps time. Commissioned in London, the clock chimes twice every quarter of the hour, and on the hour, chimes the number of the hour. (Source : Tam Chee Wah's Invite Freedom Home)

(2nd postcard) I was born and raised up in Taiping, Perak. Taiping (means Peaceful in Mandarin). Taiping Lake Garden is surrounded by the lush green and huge ancient rain trees (“angsana”) line the lake. Taiping Lake Garden Lake which is the abandoned tin mine.  

(3rd Postcard): Batu Caves, a limestone outcrop located in Kuala Lumpur. With a steep steps of 272 climbing up (and it's tiring) and the large statue of the Hindu God at the entrance, enjoy the stunning view of the skyline of the city center.
