The sharp, steel barber sheers lay unattended on the tabletop. Bottles of hair cream arranged neatly besides it. Several plastic combs bunched loosely in a container.
On the walls, medium sized- posters of men sporting short hair cuts were pasted symmetrically, decorating the barber shop. There were even new ones of famous Bollywood heartthrobs.
The red, stainless steel Takara barber chairs were first purchased in 1966. Purchased by its founder, the late P.A. Thangayah a highly respected figure and ex-chairman of the Indian Barber Association, the chairs are still in good condition and in use today.

We are used to the mass-produced “nutrition” in polystyrene boxes. And no matter how much we “communicate” on our […]
The first time I caught sight of Gunung Stong and its seven-tiered waterfalls, Jelawang Waterfall tumbling down from it, I thought, die lah like this. It was this massive, imposing granite rock that looked like a hard-core adventurer's dream, and my worst nightmare come true!
White water rafting is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Since I survived to tell the tale, let me share with you the excitement of rafting in the Kampar River surrounded by the greenery of the Gopeng rainforest.
Greeted by a dozen ducks, quacking a cacophonic welcome, is a pleasant surprise as one sets foot on dry land at Pantai Suri Village. Goats and sheep wander aimlessly, chewing on small shrubs. Everything seems peaceful and very laidback.
The silent whisper of ripening paddy fields swaying gently in the wind greets visitors, as they step into Kampung Seterpa. Running barefoot, a small boy pushes his small tricycle across the beaten footpath at the edge of the paddy fields. A rooster crows loudly, breaking the deafening silence.
