Last nite, I dont know how, but I discovered a set of photos which was taken when we were invited to a durian party at Kg Sungai Dara in Tanjung Malim, Perak. The land or rather the kebun is owned by a friend of ours. This Sg. Dara is located in Lembah Bernam, Daerah Batang Padang in Hilir Perak. Well, if you know something about dams in Perak, Batang Padang dam is one of them.
It was said that the area of Batang Padang has the largest aquifer discovered so far. About the size of Singapore. I think that was why a project to tap this underground water was taken up by Sime Darby to fulfill the demand for water in Malaysia. About 98 percent of the water supply in this country comes from surface water which is subjected to "extreme weather conditions".
