Dairy Of a Resident
Kite Flying in Bandar Botanic.
Kite flying is rite of childhood and everyone has memories of windy days in the Botanical park with Mommy and Daddy shouting gleefully as the colorful kites go higher and higher. But kites also do get stuck in trees and you have to get them down.
And the good thing about kites is that we can always use shoes to knock it back to the ground. Ha ha ha.. So, kite flyers out there, remember this: try not to fly too close to trees, especially when you are not equipped to retrieve struck kites. This rule applies to especially tall trees.
Mid-air collusions: Sometimes, there is head-on collusion, the props of one’s kite cut into another innocent kite’s, causing it to break. What surprised everyone was that even though the innocent kite suffered damages, it still can fly. Meanwhile, everyone will be laughing over the incidents and also having a jolly good time over the mid air collisions.
As kids, we learned to fly on small, inexpensive versions but now, kites come in various shapes and sizes to keep adults entertained as well. However, kite-flying is a new hobby in Bandar Botanic and Bukit Tinggi and you've find residents upgrading to a fancier version.
There are several things not to do, such as
a. Do not fly kites in stormy weather and thunder storms.
b. Under TNB high tension power lines.
c. Kites that are too heavy and powerful.
d. Avoid flying kites near people, water, trees, and buildings.
