Yesterday, my family and I went to Antares’ sanctuary at Kampong Pertak near Kuala Kubu Baru for a day trip to the countryside. We left home at 10 o’clock in the morning and reached Kuala Kubu Baru around 12 noon.

Antares was at the Kuala Kubu Baru Commuter Station to meet and drove us up to his place called “Magick River” which is a settlement for the Temuan people. On the way along a winding road, we passed by and got down to have a closer view of the brea

thtaking dam and man-made lake at Sungai Luit. It was a very huge dam but unfortunately, according to my friend, many wild-life and indigenous people have to make way for this project.

After lunch on his windy patio, Antares, his beautiful wife Anoora and young son Ahau took us to the stream further down from their house to have fun in the cool and crystal clear water. It was such a beautiful place that took our breath away. Although the water was rather cold and the stones slippery, we have a good time playing there.

I sat on a spot where the current is so strong it is like sitting on a natural massage chair. The water gushing towards my back and neck took all my tiredness away, leaving me feeling so fresh and happy.

What made us laugh was to see how Antares’ dogs and cat coming along to play in the water. At Magick River, dogs and cats were such good friends. They got along so well, there is hardly any animosity between these felines and canines. Antares was such a great animal lover and he would talk to them as if they were his kids. Bonzo and Freckles are dogs while Bartholomew, Shambala, Khatijah and Kali were cats.

Marcus had a good time snapping away at the beautiful butterflies and dragonflies. He simply loves those big butterflies that came in black and green color. Antares said their name is Rajah Brooke. Unfortunately he could not capture their photos because these butterflies refused to sit still!  🙂

We were joined by Antares’ friends – Melissa, Myriam and Soon. We played in the water for almost four hours until the dark clouds looms over our heads. As we walked back it began to drizzle. After an hour or two of chatting and singing, we all went to Kuala Kubu Baru town for dinner before catching our train home at 8.30. We reached home at 10 p.m.

It was indeed a day well-spent in the countryside, so far away from the maddening crowd and the noisy traffic of busy Kuala Lumpur. It was good for our bodies and souls.

Thank you, Antares, if you’re reading this. Thank you for your hospitality and love. You’re right – we might be related in our previous lives! That’s why we could feel this affinity for each other. I think it has something to do with our Karma!

We’ll be back to Magick River!
