Hallo kawan-kawan!

Apirak says hi again! Thank you so much, I love your cards ♥ Can you believe I never had a scone in my entire life?

The Cameron Highlands is Malaysia’s most extensive hill station. It occupies an area of 712 square kilometres. To the north, its boundary touches that of Kelantan; to the west, it shares part of its border with Perak.
On the card you can see a Tea Plantation!

Did you know?

The Cameron Highlands were named after Sir William Cameron, a British surveyor who was commissioned by the then colonial government to map out the Pahang-Perak border area in 1885.

Hallo kawan-kawan!

Apirak sent another card! Yay! Thank you very much! I have been a little lazy with updating my blog, but only because I was on vacations! I was in El Salvador, I had a great time 😀

George Town is the capital city of the Malaysian state of Penang, located on the north-east corner of the island. Excluding the metropolitan area, the area of George Town is the seventh largest city by population in Malaysia. Together with Alor Setar and Malacca City, it is one of the Malaysian oldest cities in the Straits of Malacca.

Apirak tells me that shopkeeper in George Town often feature paintings like the one on the card on their walls. Looks great, huh?
