Sirap bandung – I just discovered the most amazing drink here in Taman Negara Malaysia. It’s made with rose syrup… it’s so delicious! Kind of tastes like strawberry milk when you put way too much strawberry quick in it. I have a feeling it has a lot of calories in it. But as long as I don’t know that for a fact, then I’m safe. Lol… plus after over 4 hours of jungle trekking I could use the extra calories.
The longest rope bridge in Malaysia & climbing – swinging rope vines…
Right now in Taman Negara… 7am
Turkish melody in the Malaysian rainforest
New Rainforest song performed in Taman Negara Malaysia. (Taman Negara was published later in 2015 on Traveler’s Symphonia album)
The insects in the rainforest are so loud, sounds like a car alarm.
