Where green rocks

The shot looks gorgeous eh? Well would you believe if the shots were off my old campus? I visited there during one of the breaks and took shots of what I love most about the place, the gorgeous sceneries and the greenness of the campus. When I had been there the students were on holiday, so when the security stopped me I blurted out that I was meeting a student there and immediately told my ex colleges name and they let me in, I lied so well you see. Hehhe ;p


The campus consists of vast lands of different trees, a coconut farm on one side, fir trees on the other, or rows of gorgeous forest trees, flower farms, fruit trees (every season students used to sneak and steal fruits) and boulevards of greenery and even a cemetery that's eerily deserted yet beautiful even at 12 in the night ;p


There's even a river and a few lakes around the campus and when I was still there, a deer farm. I used to occasionally drive there ( the place is huge) and watch the deers. Sadly the deer farm is no longer there, but if I peeked into the veterinary section I might just see a horse and a variety of animals.

Then there's the building, some of the first built buildings (colonial styled) are still around so it adds to the charm plus now they've added a few more buildings in traditional Malay styles, even the security booth is gorgeous ;p. The only problem with such a beautiful place was classes used to be in each corner of the campus and we used to walk in the first sem. Yeah we did a lot of running in between classes and swearing at the person who set the classes schedule!

Even the college areas were green, so many nights we sat out at the benches under huge warm embracing trees chatting till we got reprimanded for the noise we were making. Or the amount of fun we had during the annual fair set amidst the jungle of trees, working at the stalls or visiting each one and just having fun. Coz it was a jungle area they had loads of activities like sliding on a harness across the lake or between the huge trees and the ponies would be out for parades, plus all the usual fair entertainments. Armed with delicious cotton candy, we'd make our way around the place, trying out the rides. Those were the days.

Ps : campus not disclosed to elude google.

Don't la, now I'm nostalgic ready. As much as I love google, this is one of the reasons I hate it. You can look up at this url, to prevent the search bots from indexing your site.

Scroll down to "HTML meta tags for robots". I think if you can add them to your theme. Not sure if it's really effective, but new posts don't get indexed, though the older posts do still get hits from google.

ask me ask me...I kno the campus...ok i wont tell...but what the heck...there is only one uni in msia with a cemetary...muhahahahah!

Yeh, the guards a dum dums la now there, i stopped going there...even bob hates da place, he studied there and his saraku still studies there.

nothing much to say bout it, its a kampung uni specializing in agriculture when sudenly one minister had d bright idea to turn it into a premier uni and then the other minister changed it back to an agriculture uni. long story.

luckily now they do have security houses, last time it was open range for anyone and everyone.

Hey Visit,

Thats just out of the world place to have a College Campus. I am sure education would have been a pleasure in these serene surrounding.

It would definitely have been a pleasant nostalgia visiting your campus again. Enjoy.
