An email from sugumaran chidambaram (sugusports59@yahoo.co.uk)


"The much talked Cable Car to Bkt Larut should be implimented immediately for the sake of Taiping folks and tourist alike. Its time Taiping shed its "SLEEPY HOLLOW" image and get on with the rest of places in the tourist map of our beloved country. Many senior citizens of Taiping living and the dead have never set afoot atop the Maxwell Hill due to the agonizing journey using the Land rovers. Many haved complained about the trecheros journey up by jeep and returned promising never to go up again. Let's allow the company which has come forward to put up the cable car by adhering to universal standards and mainting the foliage and fauna of bkt larut. It will be fantastic for all of us in Taiping and visitors. thank you. Sugumaran".

An email from Thomas R Soosai (tommiasoosai@yahoo.com)


"The uniqueness of the Larut Hills rests in its ambiance and natural beauty.I agree with comments made by several people that the Larut Hills should not be turned into a commercial tourist attraction. I would keep it the way it is and upgrade all of its rest houses with modern amenities. Keep the jeep mode of transportation. Last July 2009, I had an opportunity to go up the hills with my wife and it was a wonderful experience. We were the only two souls to walk it all the way down in about 2 1/2 hours. It was a wonderful experience after 30 years. I would like to see a restaurant that is open or some soda machine where one can get a soda after hiking up the hills. Keep the beaut as is and make it a very uniwue experience for those who want to experience something different. They do it in South American why not in Taiping".

Taiping,is one of the most quiet and peaceful places I have ever been to in Malaysia.On a Sunday morning,you can actually tell it's a Sunday morning,no I'm not a Churchgoer,maybe I'm selfish and Old Fashioned,but I say leave Taiping the way it is.In years to come,future Generations will spend Millions to create'Theme Parks' and 'Tourist Attractions'in efforts to portray,what they wish to portray as Malaysia as it was.Why?when you can see Malaysia,'As it Was'in places as unique as Taiping.Let 'Sleepy Hollow' Sleep,lest we awake the spirit of the 'Headless Horse Man' that is Tourism

Yes Jim
I agree with you entirly Taiping has a very special feeling about it, it just may be the fact that it still hasent lost its Quaintness or that old town look.
i say hold on to that and cherrish what you have.

Hi Kayes
"How Old is your Granny" :-)?.
Yes i must dig out more old Photos, but how do i post them on to you.
Taiping is like Bali High in the film South Pacific (it keeps calling me Back)
after all Theese years (48) It most certainly is a very special place.

hello Gadzy. very pleased to see you back at Taiping Talk Smile You can scan the photos and email them to me. The alternative is to post them to me and I will scan them and then return to you. You can post them to:-


PO Box 272,
General Post Office,
10730 Penang,
MALAYSIA.


By the way, the last movie shown at that wooden Pokok Assam cinema was probably South Pacific Smile At that time Mitzi Gaynor was considered really sexy. And the "coconut dance" performed by the male sailors was almost pornography ..... in those days.
