KUALA KUBU BHARU
This just a simple stories of my single journey to the Greenery of KKB;
After a few hours of walking...i finally found a place where i can sit and relax myself for a couple of minutes..or shall we say..just take a breath of a fresh air before my journey continues.
As you can see the two big stone next to me is the Trade Mark of the Bukit Kutu, located in small town of  Kampung Pertak, Kuala Kubu Bharu.
I believed every journey have their own stories and histories.My walk start with a smile in a stranger place and my journey just begun...Kuala Kubu Bharu very relaxing town surrounding with a beautiful greenery, the small town looks like in the 60's,70's era during British time. The architecture of the old buildings still standing strong among the new buildings in town.Tye people in Kuala Kubu Bharu @KKB, enjoy a moderate lifestyle, most of the villagers work in government agencies some in private sectors as running their own businesses.And the best among all the business that runs through generations 'Family Business'.
