I first met Mr Raja back in 2010.

Never a history buff in the first place – I used my thick, brick-like history books as shields for Mills & Boon romance novels and thought only crazy people would go gaga over dilapidated buildings and dead people – I was surprised how fun it turned out to be, and it had a lot to do with our engaging guide, Mr Rajasegaran.

So naturally when it came to Batu Gajah, I engaged Mr Raja again.

I enjoyed myself thoroughly, as did my mum and dad.

Since Father’s Day is round the corner, I thought I’d write an early tribute to my dad 🙂
