there is monkey but i don c bats
Hi.. are video recordings allowed in the temple ? I'm a 49 year old Malaysian Chinese Independent film maker and i'm about to start a 2 week SOLO riding trip across our beautiful country.. As a concerned citizen and BEING SICK OF OUR LOCAL POLITICS WITH ALL THE RACIAL OVERTONES, i've decided to make a short film on what it is, THAT MAKES MALAYSIA SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME !!... I'm hoping this video will remind most Malaysian's about not just the BEAUTY of our country but also of it's PEOPLE as well.. Fire cannot be fought with fire and the only way to counter the hatred caused by our Politicians, is with the beauty and pride of our nation.. My video equipment will only consist of a small camera mounted on a Unipod ( single leg) as opposed to a tripod ( 3 legs) and i assure you this will NOT be a hindrance or danger to any other visitors !!.. I will be leaving KL on Sunday or Monday latest and will be riding along the back roads through KKB, Frasers, Tanjung Malim, Tapah, Kampar, Ipoh, Kuala Kangsar, Taiping, Penang, Sungai Petani, Langkawi and will reassess from here... Should hopefully be in Ipoh by Tues/Wednesday (5 or 6th December 2016) Will pay the normal entrance fee, just needing permission for a simple film.. Thank you..
