Visiting Forest Research Institute Malaysia aka FRIM has been on my "To-Visit-Places" list since 2008 and I can finally tick the box for "DONE" this year!!! This is all thanks to my colleagues for coming up with this Sport's Day event^~^ I know visiting FRIM which was founded on 1929 is no amazing feat since I guess many peoples have visited this place but what a shame, I've never been there before^~^"
So on a fine Sunday morning, instead of being deep in slumber, we set off to FRIM to breathe some fresh air~~ They charged an entrance fee of RM1 per person & RM5 per car drive-in.
Spotted this very dingy wooden sign with "BUKIT FRIM" engraved on it~~~
My healthy bunch of colleagues^~^
One thing that we're advised in which we shouldn't miss is the Canopy Walkway which is suspended 30m off the ground spanning 200m...but what a shame again, we MISSED it!!!!! This was because we actually have to purchase a ticket to cross the canopy walkway but the ticket booth is in the very front entrance of FRIM but we're already half way up on the hill!!!!!!! Talk about FRUSTRATION~~~ Anyway, we still managed to make up for our disappointment by taking loads of pictures^~^
A board depicting the history of FRIM~~
Looks steep from this angle~~Luckily we didn't slip........
Spotted this sign~"POKOK BERBAHAYA (MATI)".....My colleague & I were very curious with what kind of tree is that, how could it possibly caused death???????
Finally we made it down the hill^~^ What an enjoyable stroll!! There is a mini waterfall behind us with kids playing in the fresh water~~
I supposed for those nature lovers, this is a perfect place to spend your weekend^~^ Family can also have picnic at the waterfall area~~ It's a perfect place for a healthy stroll without being too strenuous~~~
After the trip, all of us were starving for FOOD!! Hence, we went to Kepong to satisfy our hunger pang~~ We're recommended to this famous BAK KUT TEH restaurant which I've forgotten its name since I was too hungry to bother at that time.....^~^"
At the end of the meal, we're all bloated!! All those workouts went to the drain!! *gulp*
After the hearty meal, off we went home to make up for the missing slumber~~~ Hahaha....what a healthy Sunday~~
