Over the weekend, I went to Kuala Lipis to catch Mozzies,actually its at Mela (45 min from Kuala Lipis) & Padang Tunku( 20 mins from Kuala Lipis).
We stayed in a Hotel called Jelai,Kuala Lipis which is around 1
hour from Bentong. We arrived on Friday night,was surprised to see a KFC in town cos i
ts quite hulu. Rested the whole night and went wandering the next night since there is nothing to see or go, we left the hotel for breakfast,lunch and the occasional dinner.
On Saturday evening, we went to Padang Tunku to set up light traps to catch mozzies. A light trap consist of a bulb, Co2 box, net trap and fan (see below).
Then we went to Mela for BLC (Bare leg catch). Basically,we rolled up our pants and exposed our legs for the mozzies to bite,then we'll trap them using a vial which is then stuffed with cotton wool to prevent the mozzies from escaping.
During the 1st night, we stayed at the from 6 pm- 6 am and caught about 500 +/- mozzies from various genus such as Masonia, Aedes, Culex, Anopheles and Armigeres.
During the 2nd and 3th night,we stayed at the site till midnite.
Erm,going to a ulu place is normal to see some unwanted guests especially when the site is on someone's land, I think I saw a few "guardians",luckily they were just watching and didn't disturb except for one nite,when we were a bit boisterous.
And of cos,when we were there,our daily meal consisted of ikan patin, so yummy and delicious and not fatty at all. I also had a taste of jungle fowl. The bird is kinda muscular.
Also spotted a few cute lengcai mechanics and 1 or 2 of our kind there.
