The Kampung Road

The Road to My Hometown

i took this picture when i was on my way back to KL in a bus

my hometown is a very small town called Batu Gajah that is about 5-10 minutes drive from the popular tourist attraction, Kellie's Castle..

It is not very developed but already granted as "bandar" (city) status..

Hey! Batu Gajah! We used to go there for short outings and buy stuff if we were too lazy to go to Ipoh. I studied in USM Tronoh several years back. Most memorable is the KFC. But the chicken always smelled 'hanyir'. Never toured Kellie's Castle though.

I have been to Kellie castle, quite nice.. if they did take the movie there, the place is quite a ruin.

Oh, Batu Gajah! Yet another Perakian, nice! :p

You know I've been to Menglembu, Teluk Intan, Sitaiwan, Kampar, Bidor, Taiping, KK, Grik...but never BG! I should do a full coverage of my beloved Silver State sometime :)

I heard Ipoh property veli cheap cheap nowadays.

Can buy house from 100k.

Good place for people who don't need to rely on local employment.

Soon property bubble will burst.

Many house to choose from to sapu.
hehehe.
