    At Last !!! A Public Toilet !

    New Toilet

    This is a rare and most welcome sight in most Malaysian towns.

    Otherwise, you would have to go to the coffee-shop, but only after buying a drink or some food -- the owner might not welcome you to his toilet Free-Of-Charge

    Kampung House, Bota

    If only you had lots of land, you could stay in this kind of house.

    But are you cooped up in your apartment ? That explains why you have to travel ! Escape from dreary surroundings ?

    Come stay in the kampung ............

    Turtle Conservation ?

    The  Turtle Breeding Centre, Bota

    If you're interested in wildlife conservation, you could take a tour to Bota Kanan, 17 km from Ayer Tawar.

    Here is the Pusat Pembiakan Tuntung ( Riverine Turtle Hatchery ) where the tuntung ( turtle ) is studied, bred and displayed to the public for educational purposes.

    Just paid a vist yesterday 13 July 2005, and saw many teenagers having happy hours there !

    Dating, and not particularly interested in the turtles ! Not a bad idea to socialise in a society where such behaviour is discouraged.

    What can you do in Ayer Tawar ?

    On a Sunday, you could go to the big Chinese Methodist Church. On some festival days, you could watch those parades, esp Thaipusam, or some Chinese cultural demonstrations, which are few and far between.

    The only grand occasion is the funeral procession which seem to be very frequent. The noisy procession of the Chinese usually parades the whole length of the town before it disperse to the burial grounds. Malays usually hold quiet funerals. Indians normally go straight to the cemetery where cremation is the rule.
