Christmas Time is Here

For the final Boarding House outing this year, we decided to treat the boarders to something special by taking them 300km to Ipoh in the state of Perak Darul Ridzuan.

Visit to the Kek Look Tong Cave

Kek Lok Tong (sometimes spelt as Kek Look Tong) is translated as Cave of Ultimate Bliss (or Great Happiness) and indeed it does seem to bring a feeling of well-being to the many local visitors who regard it as their favourite among Ipoh’s many splendid cave temples. The stalactite and stalagmite formations of ‘curtains’, ‘chandeliers’ and ‘pillars’ were truly amazing. So were the layered sedimentary rocks. These structures have improved our knowledge in Geography and Earth Sciences.

Tour of the Pomelo Orchardt

We learned that Ipoh produces the best pomelos because of the laterite soil which is rich in hematite (iron ore). Apparently pomelos grow well in this type of soil. Have more pomelos if you need more iron in your body system.

Tin Mining Museum

Han Chin Pet Soo is Malaysia’s first Hakka tin mining museum managed by Ipoh World Sdn. Bhd. The area is located on the edge of Ipoh’s Old Town, close to the Kinta River. The exhibits, from the ‘palong’ replica to the wax figures, were so amazing and educational. No wonder it is one of the top tourist spots in Ipoh!
