Er...is this boy ever awake?

I dunno how he manages to remember all the details. Perhaps he learned them for the right reasons..i.e for the knowledge itself...unlike yours truly who memorised history just to pass SPM. Hence, as soon as exam was over... all history facts were dutifully erased from memory :(
Today, Bukit Malawati offers a panoramic view of the Selangor coast and the Klang Valley. Besides Fort Malawati, there are several other fascinating historical attractions such as the Royal Mausoleum and the fabled execution block. My kids in particular were most interested in the ancient fort and cannons which were found there. Their first hand experience being at the fort surrounded with cannons brought squeals of delight as they imagined to be Captain Jack Sparrow on his many pirate escapades!
As we circumnavigate the Malawati Hill we marvelled at the beautiful white-washed lighthouse also known as the Altingsburg Lighthouse. Named after the Dutch Governor General of that time, who was Governor General Alting. Since baby Luqman was in my lap, I forced hubby to run out of the car and take a pic of it. And I wasn't disappointed. The view of the lighthouse in the late afternnoon, framed by branches from a nearby tree was by far the best picture of the day!
Kudos to the amateur photographer!
