to be recycled and incinerated.

Abandoned Chimney of Brinchang

This abandoned incinerator chimney of about 8m height in Brinchang,
Cameron Highlands,near the entrance to the Big Red Strawberry Farm.
It must have been build by very environmentally conscious people
to get rid of their rubbish in a highland frequented by tourist.

Chimneys of Convent Primary School

The chimneys of Convent Primary School in Tanah Rata,Cameron Highlands
is definitely a unique one for a  French influence colonial building
which was officially opened in 1935 as a broarding school called the Pensionnat Notre Dame.
During the WW2 it was used as a hospital by the Japanese
and later again by the British until it was handed back to the congregation
to be restored and used as a school again.

The emblem on the wall.

A view of Tanah Rata from the school.

Chimneys of Prai Power

The chimney of about 45m high of Prai Power
a Combined Cycle, single shaft configuration with a GE 9FA gas turbine,a heat recovery steam generator,
a steam turbine driving a common generator with an output of 350mw.

This building beside the Prai Power is what  remains of the TNB Prai Power Station,
a thermal power plant which was decommissioned and dismantled in preparation
for the installation of a new modern combined cycle  block running on natural gas
which have yet to materialize,with a short gas supply conditions in peninsular,
a heavy fuel oil thermal power plant would be a good option to even up the fuel mix
if pollutants can be reduced.

Chimneys of The Lakehouse

The Lakehouse Cameron Highlands Resort offers two beautiful chimneys
to welcome guests and visitors to this famous highlands resort.

A nicely decorated lightning arrestor.

Sadly the scene of the lake in front of the resort is very muddy
due to soil erosion and sedimentation caused by over farming.

Chimneys of Kuala Kedah Fort

These two old colonial house chimney  
most probably build by the British after 1909
in the compound of the Kuala Kedah Fort are one of the  lucky few
to be preserved by the museum, besides the Labuan Chimney in Labuan.

An old Light House build in 1891.

 The chimney seems to be smoking away in this shot
which sent my goose pimples up after seeing this HDR edit.
