most of the tower and entrance are fully
constructed by Bamboo, an easily found

to environment friendly Jamboree...

like the proverb is Bahasa Malaysia says...
"dimana ader gula, disitu ada semut..." translations ....
"where ever there is sugar, they bound to be ants..."

the tourism board of Terengganu sends their message to the masses

another long Q, this makes me a bit hungry too ...
nothing stop this Feroz when it's about Radio
stuff ... seen here this fellow has forgotten he has
just done an operation on his hand ....

these are not to catch birds, but to received and
transmits signals ..

these company of ants has lost their senses, they have mistaken
