Historical town boasts of many firsts

5 AUGUST 2014 @ 8:01 AM

Diana Yeoh streets@nst.com.my
TAIPING: THE Taiping Municipal Council (MPT) has lined up interesting events until the end of the year to promote the landmarks and historical places here.
Its Tourism and Media Welfare Department head, Hanim Ramly, said the calendar of events designed for Taiping includes a Taiping Zoo Carnival (Sept 13-21), 57th Merdeka celebration (Sept 6), Activity @ Library (Sept 6), Perak Museum Exhibition Carnival (Sept 12-14), Art & Craft Carnival (Sept 13-14), Taiping Peaceful Carnival (Sept 19-21), Peaceful Cycle (Sept 21), Baba & Nyonya Nite (Oct 12), Taiping Raptor Watch (Oct 26), Exotic Orchid Show (Nov 9), Heritage Ride & Walk Treasure Hunt (Nov 30) and Airshow Festival (Dec 12-14).
It is part of the council’s effort of promoting The Town of Everlasting Peace as a Heritage Tourism Town.
MPT recently recorded its “33 Firsts in Taiping” which is a showcase of the best heritage places recommended for travellers visiting the town.
The list of the 33 places are printed on the council’s Taiping Tourism Calendar of Events 2014 brochure, obtainable from the council office itself.
Among the historical places are — Taiping Town (1874), Assistant Resident Residency (1875), Roman Catholic Church (1875), Town Rest House (1879), Maxwell Hill (1879), Goal/Prison (1879), Clock Tower (1881), Market (1884), Lake Garden (1884), Railway (1885), Port Weld (1885), Perak Museum (1886), War Cementery (1947) and Night Safari Zoo (2003).
MPT president Datuk Abd Rahim Md Ariff said the calendar of events was to promote Taiping as a heritage town highlighting its places of interest.
“This calendar of events is now into its second phase. We have selected the best 33 out of 100 historical places in Taiping for Visit Malaysia Year 2014,” said Rahim, adding that the first phase which started in January ended in June.
“We carefully chose the first 33 places based on criteria such as strong historical background, age and popularity with the tourists,” he said.
Rahim said the state government, through the state Tourism Committee chairman Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohammed Radzi, had allocated RM60,000 to MPT to kickstart the calendar of events.
The money was used, among others, for printing the brochures which were distributed to hotels and tourists.
Rahim said the calendar of events is a mock-up of its upcoming Taiping Heritage Trail 2015.
The Taiping Heritage Trail 2015, incorporates the routes leading to the 33 historical places, which will be unveiled next year.
“We will be upgrading the roads to cater for the trail, put up signboards, lamp posts, cycling tracks, police beats, ample parking areas and an information kiosk.”
He added that the Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA) would be funding RM2.9 million for the upcoming heritage trail.

AMID THE MANGROVES OF MALAYSIA

Malaysia Perak Taiping Fireflies glow against the Kuala Sepetang night sky.
MARIAM MOKHTAR BRINGS US THE STORY OF HOW
ONE PERSON’S LOVE OF NATURE HAS BLOSSOMED
INTO A GLOWING ECO-TOURISM INITIATIVE.
AMID THE MANGROVES
OF MALAYSIA
Global Snapshots
His memories of seeing the bioluminescent creatures for the first time remain vivid. “I remember like it was yesterday,” says Khairul Salleh, as he whips out his computer to show me photos of the mangrove forest. “We came round a bend in the river and saw the most amazing spectacle. Thousands of flickering lights. It was breathtaking.”
That sight inspired Khairul to tell the whole world about the beauty of the insects he so cherishes: fireflies.
On that night in 2008, Khairul had set off in a small boat to catch freshwater lobsters in the estuary of the Sepetang river in the Malaysian state of Perak. Fishing was his hobby, but catching lobsters was a new challenge. He’d been told that shining a powerful torch into the water would reflect light from the lobsters’ eyes, pin-pointing their position.
Although lobster fishing sounded easy enough, Khairul was more concerned about the accompanying dangers. Mangrove trees have complex root systems that are partially submerged, providing a haven for insects, fish, birds and reptiles. The lobsters thrive in the water beneath the trees, but the aerial roots are also home to venomous snakes like pit vipers, known locally as ular punti.

“If you are bitten,” says Khairul, “you have a chance if you seek treatment immediately.” The minimal reassurance of his grim statement quickly fades when he adds, “Crocodiles also inhabit the mud beneath the trees.”
The 33-km-long Sepetang river flows into the tidal waters off Kuala Sepetang, but only a tenth of it flows through the Matang Forest Reserve, an area rich in flora and fauna. This estuarine location is famous for its mangrove forest and charcoal production. The fishing villages around Kuala Sepetang produce some of the country’s best seafood, while migratory birds at the Kuala Gula bird sanctuary attract birdwatchers local and foreign.
Scientists believe the synchronised flashing of the fireflies is a mating ritual and display of courtship. Visitors who come to see them will also spot firefly-supporting berembang trees along the riverbanks. These mangrove mainstays have attractive cerise flowers whose nectar lures the fireflies, and light green fruits that resemble crabapples. In 2011, a survey by the Malaysian Nature Society charted 130 mature berembang trees along the Sepetang river.
Studies by the Forest Research Institute Malaysia show that the adult firefly (which is in fact a beetle) is about the size of a grain of rice. The adult female firefly lays her eggs in the rotting, muddy undergrowth of the mangrove forest. Firefly larvae feed on the snails that live in the muddy swamp. After two or three months, the firefly emerges. Its lifespan lasts about four weeks before the cycle repeats.

Although Khairul has spread word of the fireflies, locals have been aware of them for generations. In Malay folklore, fireflies are believed to be the nails of passing ghosts – this is told to children to encourage them to come inside at dusk. The Chinese have a story about a poor student who caught fireflies and put them in a jar (releasing them afterwards) in order to study by their light.
A curious Khairul approached the Malaysian Nature Society to learn more. Soon later, scientists and nature photographers were seeking his services to observe the fireflies. He saw the potential for eco-tourism, but also feared that the fireflies’ habitat might be destroyed.
Dusk descends over Kuala Sepetang
With the aim of boosting local awareness, Khairul started a blog, telling the villagers that the fireflies’ presence meant the environment was in good condition, both in the water and on land. He advised the local community that they could earn some.

For his part, Khairul frequently gives talks to students, family groups and tourists. When he began in 2008, visitor numbers were modest. Five years later in 2013, he counted close to 3,500 visitors from countries around the world.
“It is my mission to tell people to be more aware of nature,” he says with conviction. “The importance of the mangrove forest cannot be underestimated. It protects the shoreline from storms and wave action, even tsunamis. It is a natural barrier against coastal erosion and flooding. The roots act like a natural pollution treatment plant. Mangrove trees are an important food source and nursery for fish and marine life; they also provide timber for making poles and charcoal.”
Khairul teams up with locals such as villagers, park rangers, charcoal factory owners and boat operators. Bringing together these seemingly disparate groups results in a varied itinerary for visitors. Tour groups can walk along the boardwalk through a small portion of the mangrove forest, go on a river tour, help to rejuvenate the forest by planting mangrove saplings, and even visit a charcoal factory. Despite charcoal’s dirty reputation, these businesses are environmentally sustainable according to factory owners, who claim to replant a sapling for every mangrove tree they fell.
Which is not to say that the environment here is free from threats. Khairul points to the attitude of some people who, he says, treat the river as a dustbin and fail to respect the mangrove forest. Having seen the effects of industry pollution while conscious of the development needs of the local community, he knows there’s little he can do to stop the march of perceived progress. Threats to the fireflies’ habitat include effluent from factories, pesticide and fertiliser run-off from farms, light pollution from nearby industrial zones and illegal land-clearing.
His use of eco-tourism to combat these threats has made Khairul’s name synonymous with the fireflies of Sepetang. Amid the charmingly electric atmosphere of the tours, his unofficial title of “Guardian of the Fireflies” feels fitting. And his affinity for the insects proves infectious with visitors. “It looks like someone switched on tree after tree of fairy lights,” gushes a child with eyes the size of saucers, “– in the middle of the jungle!” .
