Tanjong Malim Trip

Tanjong Malim is situated in Perak state of Malaysia. Decided to pay a visit on the 19th of January 2008. Together with my field trip buddy, Ngiam, I took a hour scenic drive up to perak to visit this area that make up of combination of oil palm plantation, rubber estate and peat forest. Crystal clear water creeks run through the plantations and black water creeks run through peat forrest. We explored these creeks and happy to find some local fauna and flora.

On this trip, we managed to collect some Crytocoryne minima and some aquatic faunas.
