    Hi! My name is Shah. Married man with 2 kids. My full time job is running an advertising agency and television production business.
    I love outdoor activities related with nature. To share this passion with others, I have develop a place for recreation that can be visited by anyone who has the same interest.

    I have 4 acres of land located in south of peninsular Malaysia. Situated in Negeri Sembilan, It takes 1 hour and 30 minutes driving from Kuala Lumpur city center. I was planned to build a simple eco resort using bamboo as a main building material. The project was started in January 2016 and the progress status now is 40%. The volunteers can involve in all construction works such as bamboo harvest, bamboo treatment, build a chalet and other tasks such as gardening and planting tree for landscaping.
