On another thread awhile ago, I mentioned about Jim Thompson (ex-OSS guy turned 'Thai Silk King') staying here (Moonlight Bungalow) when he mysteriously disappeared whilst out for a walk, in 1967. Thanks for posting this pic, Kayes.

Here's a pic of the front entrance. Jim Thompson stepped over the white wooden fence (left of pic), went for a walk along a jungle trail and was never seen again. Moonlight used to be owned by Ipoh lawyer, Soo Wai Sun in the 70s.

Whoa, I did a double-take just then. That sofa in the pic above is almost identical to the one I have right here in my own living room! Thanks for the lovely pics.


I really must try and spend a couple of days up in Cameron Highlands on my next trip back. An old family friend, YH Khor, either owns or runs a nursery up there. Last time I visited Cameron Highlands was way back in 1990.
