Sunny morning in Bukit Sekilau, Kuantan

I took Lauren out for a walk at 10am this morning. It was a dazzlingly beautiful and very hot Sunday morning in Bukit Sekilau, Kuantan. We only walked around for 25 minutes before we headed home - it was just too hot and bright for Lauren.

Bukit Sekilau is a beautiful area of Kuantan and I've had many an adventure here for the last 5 years of living here. Even walking the same roads of Bukit Sekilau springs many a surprise with the ever-changing plants and flowers decorating each house and street corner.

This morning was no different as we sauntered around a handful of streets about 200 yards from our apartment.

Bukit Sekilau is named so due to the large hill which looks over the area. "Bukit" in Bahasa Melayu means "hill". Part of the hill named Bukit Sekilau can be seen in this photograph:

During our brief walk we managed to capture these delightful images of flowers dotted around Bukit Sekilau, Kuantan. Hope you enjoy them :)

Wishing each and every one of you a happy weekend and an even brighter start to the new week!


  1. The folks at Bukit Sekilau sure likes some good gardening !

  2. Wong, they sure do, it must be everyone's favourite hobby!

  3. Wonderful photos with fantastic light and color. I love those flowers, excellent frames. Greetings.

  4. Wow, those photos are stunning, and don't they look beautiful in the frames like that. Wonderful flowers and colours. I love it when you get the flower nice and clear in the foreground and then muzzy in the background. I really am going to have to use my new camera that I had for Christmas a lot more to learn all these different techniques! Now that the weather is getting better, it will be easier to get out and about. Take care Duncan.

  5. This post is so sweet!Thanks so much for taking us with you in this lovely walking, your pictures are beautiful, the flowers are gorgeous!
    Have a great week ahead,

  6. Oh wow, gorgeous photos. My favourites are the ones looking up.

  7. I can only imagine some of the positions you had to get in to take of of these shots. Beautifully done

  8. Looks like you had some beautiful sights on your short walk. Weekend was good but oh so fast. Now back to work.

  9. Thanks so much Leovi, Leia, Lynda, Randy and Lasse! Diane, you should get out there and experiment with the camera! Odie, it does take some weird positions and waiting till nobody's around to get some great shots!

  10. I'm getting to know Kuantan, your photos are absolutely wonderful.

  11. Well thank you so much Anthony! Kuantan is a great place to visit, I'm surprised more people don't in fact come. It needs advertising better, so hopefully through my blog, it will become a little more famous with some good attention!
