Fourth Series of banknotes...

"Don't waste time grieving over past mistakes. Learn from them and move on..."

(A new look with security features)

The new RM50 banknote to celebrate 50th year of nationhood is the first of the 4th series banknotes. Only 20,000 pieces of the new RM50 banknote with a special packaging were made available for sale to members of the public and priced at RM60 per set.

(The queue starts very early)

There was a long queue as early as 6.30 a.m. at Bank Negara Malaysia's Head Office.
By noon the sets were all sold out!

Mind the Gap...

“Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind...”

Frazer's Hill
(22 - 24 December 2007)

(The view from our bedroom)

Dear hubby and I spent two nights at our apartment resort at Frazer’s Hill to escape the heat of the city. We spent most of the time indoor, in front of the heater, reading story books or watching old videos of the kids, which brought sweet and sad nostalgic memories.

The weather was cool, there were minimal activities at the attraction areas, but the town centre was exceptionally crowded with tourist.

Access to Fraser's Hill was possible only via a 8-km one-lane road known as the The Gap, used by uphill and downhill traffic in turns as the new road was completely closed because of landslide and closed for major repairs. Although it was raining, and faced with the risk of landslides, we descended via the Raub road on the way back to KL and stopped at the road side to eat durian.
