When people hear of Malaysia, they often think of Petronas Towers and Kuala Lumpur. How about getting far away? I went far from Kuala Lumpur when I was in Malaysia for a training. I loved the place because it was so tranquil to stay in there. The place is called De Palma Hotel in Kuala Selangor.

De Palma Hotel is a place to me as a person who lives in a rural province. I did not hear cars when I stayed in there. I listend to birds chirping and enjoyed nature.

Together with representatives from the ASEAN member countries, there were only two of us from the Philippines - myself (3rd from left) and Dr. Paul Cabahit (2nd from left) of Leyte. In De Palma Hotel, I stayed in a chalet with two women from Vietnam. I enjoyed the bonding with fellow citizens from ASEAN nations.

Monkeys are everywhere in the hotel complex. You'll see them hanging in the trees or walking side by side with you. These monkeys remain untouched as the Malaysian government and the people care for them.
