Dear Friends and Guests,

After twenty years of running Teluk Iskandar Inn, we've decided to retire and close the inn.

This decision was not easy, as these past two decades were full of fond memories. We have enjoyed sharing meals, stories, and experiences with all of you, in our slice of tranquility by the sea.

We'd like to thank everybody for all of their support and memories. Without a doubt, we will carry them with us as we continue onto our next adventure.

We are seeking parties that are interested in leasing, or purchasing Teluk Iskandar Inn. Please contact us at to discuss potential opportunities.

Thank you so much for twenty years of your support. We look forward to our next adventure!

With love,

Kamariah and Ibrahim

Partial Solar Eclipse

In addition to the moths, we also were able to witness a partial solar eclipse this morning at 7:55AM. The day started out cloudy, and we noticed that we hadn't heard the usual chirping of the birds early in the morning. Could it be because of the eclipse? Shahril and Teresa went down to the beach and tried an indirect method of viewing the eclipse by pointing a binoculars towards the sun, and aiming the captured light onto a piece of white paper. We observed the eclipse this way.

As an aside, the birds eventually came out, and we heard/saw two hornbills up on the coconut tree!

Unidentified Flying Objects

It has been a very interesting last couple of days. We have had several moth-like visitors come to the house, fly about the kitchen and the patio, and then leave. Shahril got one of them to land on his rambutan.

Wildboar Sighting -)

Its a good sign of biodiversity.

When Ibrahim and Kamariah first set up Iskandar Inn about 12 years ago there were hardly any street lights and most of the area was still somewhat wild.

Today, its a vibrant community dotted with nice houses, inns and places to eat.

Its a good sign to see hornbills and wildboars still among us ! Nature is still with us !

Happy New Year and a Prosperous 2009 to all !

(contrary to popular belief wildboar don't charge people at random. They are quite shy and stay away from people)
