Bukit batu kapur Kota Gelanggi, Jerantut



Bukit Batu Kapur Kota Gelanggi atau dulu dikenali sebagai Kota Jin. Salah satu jajaran batu kapur dari batu kapur Gua Musang dan Batu Kapur G. Senyum dan Batu Kapur Jebak Puyuh. Terbentuk dari pengenapan marin laut cetek dan cengkerang-cengkerang berkarbonat kira-kira 260-250 juta tahun lampau. Dulu kecoh pasal ada org buat rumah dalam gua ni.. aktiviti pengkuarian pun dah diberhentikan. Sekarang Tekam Plantation yang ambil alih kawasan ni. Siap ada muzium lagi..




Pantai Batu Hitam, Kuantan









Pantai Batu Hitam terletak dalam daerah Kuantan berhampiran sempadan Pahang-Terengganu. Namanya adalah bersempena dengan kewujudan batu berwarna hitam yang kedapatan di sekitar kawasan pantai tersebut. Singkapan batuan tersebut adalah sebahagaian dari singkapan batuan volkanik jenis Basalt yang mengalir keluar dari rekahan yang kemudiannya mengeras menjadi batu. Ia merekodkan aktiviti volkanik yang terakhir di Semenanjung Malaysia sekitar 1.6 juta tahun lampau.

Tea In The Cameroon Highlands, Pahang




























































In 1929, a man named J.A Russell obtained a tract of freehold land 5000ft above sea level and transformed it into the first highland tea garden in Malaysia. He named it Boh. So begins the history of BOH Plantations.

Today, BOH is a vertically-integrated tea company, one of only a few in the world which plants, processes, packs and markets its own premium brands. BOH Plantations owns four tea gardens with a total planted area of 1,200 hectares: Boh, Fairlie and Sungei Palas in Cameron Highlands, and Bukit Cheeding in the lowlands. Together, they produce 4 million kgs of tea annually. This is equal to 5.5 millions cups a day!

Tea is very much like wine: its final character is largely influenced by the conditions in which it is grown. Hence, with its high altitude, low temperatures and slightly acidic soil, Cameron Highlands is the ideal environment for growing superb teas of distinctive flavour and aroma.

Only the most tender leaves are picked every morning at BOH’s tea gardens. These are immediately transported to the tea factories to be processed for the flavour and aroma unique only to BOH.

LWD/MWD, Baker Hughes INTEQ




I used to work with Baker Hughes INTEQ (BHI) as a LWD/MWD or Logging Geologist (Mudlogger). Baker Hughes is a global oilfield service company with operations in over 90 countries. BHI used to known as Exploration Logging, founded in 1952 to provide formation evaluation services in the oil and gas provinces of California. Then in July 1979, Exploration Logging merged with Smith Corp. under the name Exlog/Smith. Being a Mudlogger is not an easy task. They have to recording all the geological data that obtained while drilling, interpreting the findings and informing the client in a timely manner of significant changes in the well. At the time of drilling a well, the most important thing to those are directly concerned with the drilling operation is to drill a hole as quickly and safe as possible at the specified location/direction and to the specified depth. Mudlogger must inspect the drilling mud and cuttings for traces of oil and gas. It is important to detect any of hazardous drilling conditions such as blowout.The log is recorded simultaneously with the drilling of the hole. Detailed data on the physical characteristic of the subsurface strata is collected and analyzed. Mudlogger provided the following information:
  • Direct measurement of HC gases from the drilling mud.
  • Chromatographic analysis of the drilling mud for individual HC gas content.
  • Total combustible gas from drill cuttings.
  • Datailed rate of penetration curve.
  • Lithology log and description.
  • Drilling mud characteristic.
  • Data pertinent to the well's operation.
  • Collect bit data, deviation and other pertinent engineering information
As a drilling well monitor, they have to familiar with the lag determinations (time interval required for pumping the samples from a particular depth to the surface), monitor the pump stroke counters, record the depth and drill rate, determine the mud gas from the drilling mud, gas trap, the gas detector, trip and connection gases, mud press, pit level indicators, collecting and examining the cuttings and provide mud logging log. Mud logging is not complex in principle and does not interfere with the drilling process, and the results are available almost immediately.

Now it was 6 years since I leave this profession, but all the memories in oil and gas fields still remain in my mind and I really missed it!

Gunung Macinchang, Langkawi, Kedah




Pemandangan di puncak Gunung Macinchang, Langkawi. Pada tahun 2000, aku pernah buat penyiasatan tapak untuk tujuan pembinaan kereta kabel di puncak2 bukit, kini kereta kabel dah siap dan aku berpeluang naik... free plak tu. Foto ini diambil pada thn 2005 semasa membuat kerja lapangan pemetaan geologi sempadan Malaysia-Thailand. Batuan di kawasan tersebut dianggarkan berusia Kambrian atau 570-505 juta tahun lampau dan merupakan batuan paling tua di Malaysia.

Panoramic at the peaks of Gunung Macinchang, Langkawi. In 2000, I have been there to carried out site investigation for cabel car proposal. This photos were taken in 2005 while there was a field trip on Malaysia-Thailand Transect Border Mapping. The age of outcrops that expose there assigned to Cambrian or about 570-505 m.a ago and was the oldest rocks in Malaysia.

Waktu Malam Di K. Lumpur



Limpahan cahaya di sekitar KLCC, K. Lumpur
APRIL, 2006

Kuala lumpur, or 'KL' as it is affectionately known, is a vibrant metropolis amidst colourful cultures. It is home to a population of 1.5 million people and is a microcosm of modern Malaysia. It is a city of delightful contrasts, offering a combination of modern sophistication and nostalgic old-world charm.

Ikan Keli 9.4 kg dari Tasik Ringlet, C. Highlands






Ikan Keli seberat 9.4 kg berjaya dinaikkan dalam pertarungan kira-kira 20 minit. Pakai umpan cengkerik. Tapi aku jenis tak suka makan ikan keli....Sebatang joran aku terjun dalam tasik setelah disentap oleh ikan. Banyak jenis keli dan ikan Likor kat tasik tersebut. Kalau hari Sabtu dan Ahad, ramai kaki pancing 'termenung' kat sana kadang-kadang sampai bersilang joran.
