Arrow Gabai Forest Waterfalls + Nirvana Memorial Park

I just returned from a trip to Gabai Forest Waterfall in Selangor, Malaysia. There are four medium-sized natural waterfalls in the forest. Imagine waterfalls amid lush greenery.

On my way back to Kuala Lumpur, I lost my way and ended up in Nirvana Memorial Park in Semenyih (a Chinese cemetery). Nirvana Corporation--the management of the cemetery is the largest bereavement care group in South East Asia.

Ms Bai-Guang the greatest actresses and singers of China was buried in Nirvana Memorial Park, Malaysia. She acted in many movies and recorded many songs. Her unique tombstone has stereo speakers that plays permanent recording of some her songs. Click the following YouTube link to see a video recording on her wonderful tombtone!!

Here are some photos from my trip:

Picture 1 - Mr. Sandy or Shā Wjng

This is a life size statue of Shā Wjng. He is one of the three helpers
of Xunzng in the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. Wujing
was originally a general in Heaven, more specifically a Curtain-Lifting
General. In a fit of rage, he destroyed a valuable vase. He was
punished by the Jade Emperor, who had him struck 800 times
with a rod and exiled to earth, where he was to be reincarnated
as a terrible man-eating sand demon. Every seven days a sword
would be sent from heaven to stab him 100 times in the chest
before flying off.

Picture 2 - The Sound of Music

These hailers were playing soothing music for the death. The
music was audible all over the cemetery.

Picture 3 - ROAR!!!

A pair of faded gold coloured lion guarding the entrance of the
cemetery...perhaps warding off the evil spirits. Can you find
the three mysterious faces on the statue?

Picture 4 - I SEE NO EVIL

Sun Wukong (Monkey King) is eyeing for potential danger in the cemetery, keeping the
place safe and peaceful.

Picture 5 - Ancient Milk Bottle?

Nope, I think this is an interesting incense burner.

Picture 6 - Lay to Rest

The burial plots in Nirvana Memorial Park (Semenyih) is very systematic. Unlike those
old Chinese cemeteries - all jumbled up. There is a saying from the late Dato Choo
Ching Hwa "Every person has the choice to a peaceful, tranquil and well-maintained
setting as one's final resting place."

Picture 7 - DIVE IN

I was mindful of these people on the first waterfall. I try my best not
to invade their privacy. Fortunately, this family (husband, wife and
two teenage boys) understand the nature of my hobby. They just
ignore my presence and keep on splashing and performing some
mini dive into the pool
