Sungai Bunus Action Group in Perak Bunus Walk for River campaign on Sept 29, 2018 to save the river.

GROWING up in Ipoh and raised by my maternal grandparents, I spent a lot of time exploring nature, especially rivers and waterfalls in the Kinta Valley.

Money was not easy to come by in my lower middle class family but we spent a lot of our weekends doing affordable adventures and activities near the rivers and waterfalls. It didn’t take a long journey to get to the rivers, and jumping into the clear running water, splashing with my brother and cousins, and catching fish and prawns were simply invigorating.
