I had been to Danok quite several times, but each time trip was too rushing so didn't manage to have a meal at Water View Restaurant. Thanks god cos this time finally i managed having a lunch here.
To get here, u can take a van or taxi and pay for RM3 / 30 Baht per person. The restaurant located in the rubble estate. It's about 5km from Danok town. Actually it's just at behind the border custom Danok.

Bunch of us. We all were the 1st time been here
Nice and serene lake
All the dishes we ordered were delivered by boat. So unique huh!!
From the title, it tells you that the castle is haunted and it even listed top 10 the most spookiest and haunted castle in the world.
Kellie's castle is located at Batu Gajah Perak. It takes approximately 30 minutes from Ipoh, the capital city of Perak state.
I always wanted to come here since many years ago after i watched a documentary show from Taiwan. It caught my attention becoz of its gorgeous castle and interesting stories about the castle. You can read it here about the castle's history.
We went there in the morning and nearly afternoon, so it was not spooky much even we enter inside the underground.
Let's the photos do the talking!!
Even it's more than 100 years-old, but it still looks great and gorgeous!
It is said that during evening time after sunset, here the corridor will appear a woman shadow. It is believed that the woman was Kellie's wife.
The main reason i went to Bandung was becos of wanted to visit Kawah Putih. I've heard a lot of people talked about the place. Some of them said that this place is cursed and the lake water would turn red if disaster gonna happen in Indonesia. I am not sure whether its true anot, but i guess that's just a rumor.
Kawah Putih is a gorgeous volcanic crater. The Lakeis one of the two craters which make up Mount Patuha, an andesitic stratovolcano. The Kawah Putih site was opened to visitors in 1987. The lake is 2,430 meters above sea level so the local climate is often quite chilly (temperatures are frequently around 10 degrees celsius).
The entrance fee to Kawah Putih is 50k Rupiah for foregin visitor and 15k Rupiah for local. (Wtf doubled up the price so much for foreign visitors. lol) The entrance fee is vary, it depends on which country u are from. If you're from Singapore, then the price would be 75k Rupiah. If you're from Europe countries or UK, then i guess the price would be100k Rupiah.
Let's the pictures do the talking about Kawah Putih!!

There is a cage out there, but no visitors are allowed to enter inside. I have no idea whats inside there.
A couple of weeks ago, i went to Bandung with my uni friends. This was an ad hoc trip. And it was my 1st time i been to Bandung and i personally think that the trip was quite nice & yet cheap. Return flight ticket plus 5 stars hotel for only RM465, 3 days 2 night. (~ 150 usd)

Due to Bandung landscape is more higher than other cities such as Jakarta or Semarang, so the weather here is much more cooler than other places in Indon.
On 1st day of our trip, we had been to Tangkuban Parahu aka Kawah Ratu. It is a dormant volcano 30 km north of the city of Bandung, It last erupted in 1983, so it's an active volcano yet. Entrance fee to Kawah Ratu is 15kRp per head.
Life is hard in Indonesia, therefore many Indonesians even they're over 50 or 60, you can see them everywhere still struggling for their life.
The most tourists in Bandung i noticed were Malaysians and Singaporeans. Actually you rarely seen Arabians or Caucasians here.
The food here is quite similar with Malaysian/Singaporean food, so no problem for us. If you're from Malaysia, Singapore or Brunei country, food and language is not a problem for us, cos the Malay language is quite similar with Indonesian language.
