Fraser Hill in May 2013

Damar Minyak tree tagged at the Phenology site under the Selangor State Forestry Department. 
Selangor State Forestry Department signage before the trail that leads to the Damar Minyak Phenology patch. According to Wikipedia, Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and interannual variations in climate, as well as habitat factors. Apparently phenological records are very useful in the study of climate change and global warming. 
Fraser Hill on a hot and sunny Saturday morning. A pair of Blythe's Hawk-Eagle dominated the skies that morning.

Raindrops clinging to this lipstick-like flowers after heavy downpour outside Telekom Apartments (Sri Peninjau).
Tree laden with rose-like pink flowers. Look like magnolia. Below pictures of the greenery and pine tree just outside the Telekom apartment (Sri Peninjau) located at the third floor.

Rainbow arch seen along the new Gap Road Saturday evening as night approaches. On the lookout for the Malaysian Eared Nightjar. Still not sure what lies at the end of the rainbow! The Nightjar remains as elusive as the pot of gold.
Breakfast consisted of Nasi Kerabu at Nurin's Fraser's Corner. Had to line up for my breakfast but it was worth it. The rice, tinged with the blue colours of the flower goes very well with freshly chopped bunga kantan, long beans, cabbage and salted egg. Missing the mackerel fish though. Deliciously enjoyed with hot teh tarik after early morning birdwatching session. Birdwatching continued after that! 
This eucalyptus tree stands tall and proud just outside Hemmant trail.
