Pulau Langkawi Cable Car

Langkawi Cable car is one of the must visit when you travel to Pulau Langkawi for holiday. It is one of the most trilling cable car ride I ever has as it needs to travel a distance of 2.2KM from the foot of the hill to the peak of the hill.

The scene from the cabin was awesome and the scenery when reached the top was amazing. The most must see when reaches the top is this cable bridge, connecting 2 mountain peaks. It takes some effort to hike to the bridge but when you are over there, cross over it to feel the thrill of hanging in midair.

However, before you head over to Langkawi cable car, please check on the this website for further information Langkawi Online.com. This is because on certain time of the month, the cable car station will be close for routine maintenance. So make sure your travel itinerary does not fall into this date.

Here are some pictures that I love the most and was taken from the Top Station.

Purple Tip Sebae Anemone – Nano Reef

This is a new live stock that I introduced to my nano reef aquarium few weeks ago. It is known as Purple Tip Anemone or Purple Tip Sebae Anemone.

Sebae Anemone is commonly known as the home for clownfishes (nemo). When ever you see a picture of a clownfish, you will see her sleeping comfortably on a Sebae Anemone.

Here are the picture of my Purple Tip Sebae Anemone, both from a distance and closer, taken with My Nikon D60 with my Tamron Sp90 macro.

This is what I mean when it become the home of a clownfish.

However it seems that the color of tentacles of this purple tips sabae anemone will changed to a dark red-brown, with purple tips as time goes by. Well I will have to see how it goes in a couple of months time.
