I notice that a good number of hit to my blog were looking for Nibong Tebal Firefly or Sungai Kelian Firefly, so I decided to do a bit of research on this subject. This lead me to a flyer from what is know as the Seberang Prai Eco-Tourism Development Council, which highlighted among others, the Nibong Tebal Railway Station Tosai I have blog about, the firefly of Sungai Kelian, Octopus catching, a 100 year old wooden church, among others.
