So. Following them up but not entering the cave, what did we do?
We would have played checkers but it seems like someone else decided to play a sort of 'Harry Potter Wizard's Checkers' or something, so we decided on this:
And after Sleep and us were done (we couldn't resist flirting with each other in lad's car too), we started on Mark Haddon's A Spot Of Bother. Egads. When we're done with this book, it's going to be your Christmas present okay otousan? Mark Haddon seems to deal in dysfunctionality. The book's good and engrossing we'll admit, but we just couldn't tolerate George (yes yes terrible us). Oh we loved how George decided to deal with the lesion.
Well, another thing about not going into the cave was that we were delegated the job of being the jaga. Thankfully we had overcast skies and so the weather was comfortably cool till midday when the gang finally emerged (taking a total time of 3hr 15m). A quick rest, a shower and we were ready to head on to iPoh.
Chee cheong fun, salted chicken, hor fun, ice cream soda, rojak (we avoided this) and tau fu fa...at 3pm.
Then it was onwards to Kellie's Castle before heading home. What greatly interested us about the place was the minimal safety precautions to be seen. Sure, a few areas were grilled off to prevent accidental suicide (you're asking for it in the first place if you go put your own self in danger) but most areas were just marked with signs stating that since construction was never completed safety was pretty much at the tourists' digression.
That someone decided to lay the brick in the shape of a heart makes us think that they've probably lost the plot of a castle. The tree? The weird trunk shape was suppose to represent a bear hugging the tree.
Still, you have the rooftop areas which were also the most precarious. On the third floor you have the 'Rooftop Tennis Court' and on the top, an open area meant for parties to be held. Goodness knows what will happen when one has had waaay to many drinks. However, we must say that the view was plenty exhilarating. Well, actually not really. Gravity was exhilirating. View was not.
After Kellies Castle it was time to head back - and everyone was too full and tired to finish up the trip with Kepong bah kut teh, unfortunately.
