The Kellie's Castle

Kellie's Castle is one of the famous place for visitors to Perak. It is located near Batu Gajah, about 20 minutes' drive from Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. The unfinished, ruined mansion, was built by a Scottish planter called William Kellie Smith.

Kellie's Castle was to surpass his estate bungalow. Construction of this unique castle began in 1915. Seventy tough workers, mostly from Madras, were employed and bricks and marble were imported from India.

But during the construction, tragedy struck. A mysterious illness broke out, killing many of Smith's workers. The superstitious Smith was told that a temple must be built to appease the gods. He immediately transferred his workers to build a Hindu temple nearby.

Work resumed after the temple was completed but the castle was never to be realized. Tragedy struck again. On a a short trip to Portugal, at the age of 56, Smith died of pneumonia. It came to an abrupt halt with Kellie's sudden death in 1926.

His heartbroken wife decided to pack up and return home to Scotland selling the estate and Kellie's Castle to a British company called Harrisons and Crosfield and with the passing of time, and the end of colonial rule, the castle soon faded into memory.

Besides being haunted, the castle is believed to have hidden rooms and secret underground tunnels.

Niagara falls

I had a friend whom just comes back from Canada. She took a lot of photos in the Niagara Falls. Wow, there are extremely beautiful! I love it!

I'm collecting some information regarding the Niagara Falls. I'm now sharing this information with all of you.

As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Niagara Falls is indisputably one of this continent's most important tourist destinations. Niagara Falls hosts as many as 15 million visitors annually. They come from all over the world to see the Thundering Waterfalls of Niagara.

Niagara Falls is the largest waterfall in the United States. It is divided into the Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls. The volume of water approaching the falls during peak flow season may sometimes be as much as 202,000 cubic feet per second.

The most complete views of Niagara Falls are available from the Canadian side of the river.

The best time to visit Niagara Falls would be April-May.

It's really attractive when looking into the pictures and description of the Niagara Falls, but I wonder if hubby and I have enough money to travel to Canada.
