      We currently live on the beginning northeast edge of Texas Hill Country. Here, the slopes and tree-covered ridges begin to become prominent, and—as with all of central Texas on its east side, with the bow in the coastline and the warming effect of the gulf currents (though relatively far away to our south and east)—we have a much warmer climate than most Texas to our north and west.

      Our nation Malaysia has tropical rainforest as its climate (Peninsular West and Borneo East in general). Its mostly rain and sunshine thoughout the year (with April – May being the driest months and December – January being the wettest). In West Malaysia, the Titiwangsa range sits right in the middle of the peninsular and the area in the range itself is where much of our national green reservation is.

      Settlement is visible from the foot of the range (on either side), all the way to the two coast. We live on the west side of the range in an areas called the Klang Valley. It is the most populous area in the country and much of its settlement is spread (historically as well), along the Klang River.

      Due to the heavy industrialization in this area (and therefore mass urbanization), we have lost much of our natural flora and fauna. The Sunda Pangolin and Fireflies are known creatures but these days they can only be found in the extreme north or extreme south of the Klang Valley. The Pangolin may have been extinct due to hunting activities but the Fireflies are still available and the region where they nest (Kuala Selangor) is a famous tourist spots.

      I live near Southern Philadelphia. This the exit of the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers into Atlantic ocean via Delaware Bay. This is an area where winds from Northwest and Southeast meet. The weather changes quite rapidly, in winter and in summer. Winter is mild, and summer is humid because of the body of water. Brook trout, Eastern Hemlock, and Mountain Laurel are state fish, tree, and flower. This probably the flat landscape of Philadelphia is not too exciting comparing to the western Appalachian range in the west of Pennsylvania.

      The surrounding lands New Jersey, Delaware, West of Philadelphia are rich, and the bay provides the convenient place to dock ships from Europe to the newly discovered continent America, to travel to the inland and to the north. Corns of farmland in the Lancaster county are tall. Food in the bay and Atlantic ocean are abundant.

      The original inhabitant here was the Lanape Indians. Later, William Penn the son of Admiral Sir William Penn founded the Province of Philadelphia in 1682. William Penn, a Quaker, helped to plan and develop Philadelphia. He was an advocate and a leader for religious freedom. So Philadelphia became an attraction for many persecuted religious groups from Europe. Along with that the birth of an independent USA was birthed at Philadelphia with the first 13 colonies in 1776.

      Because of this advantageous land to form settlements many European Nations have also landed in this area. So Philadelphia and the vicinities are good places for Dutch, Finnish, German, Swedish and Italian cuisines.

      Physical Geography: I live in a place that is a mix of mountainous regions, beaches, and tropical rainforests. The western side is primarily mountainous, with mountains up to 4,000m in height.

      Human Geography: Home to 32 different indigenous groups with a unique lifestyle, languages, and food.

      Natural History: From the monkeys (Orang Utan) living in the jungle to the parasitic ‘Rotting Corpse Lily,’ my place (Borneo) often ranks among the world’s top regions for ecotourism.
