The stifling afternoon heat slowly gave way to the occasional cool breeze from the hills.  The gathering of ominous cumulus nimbus was also a gentle hint for my eventual departure from the place that used to be my playground…

The new main entrance into Police College. Original gate was 100 meters back. Crime rate surely must be low due to high population of police personnel 🙂

Decided to revisit just a couple more places before I headed back to the hustle and bustle of the city…

The KKB Golf Club is still operational after all these years. Before golf carts were the norm, caddies used to wheel those heavy golf bags all over the course. And I had such evenings with my dad too.

If you continue uphill, you will eventually arrive at Fraser's Hill, one of Malaysia's oldest "Hill Resorts". Do check for traffic schedule as the narrow winding road closes early due to weather conditions.

Heading back home, I reminded myself of how such simple life could carry so much happiness and clarity.  Many times I caught myself thinking how incredible the human experience is stored and re-played at will with details intact.
