Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Jim Thompson, Cameron Highlands (State Of Pahang) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Cameron Highlands
the name Jim reverberates
in the hills and my heart

Cameron Highlands
where could Jim have
disappeared to?

Cameron Highlands
in the birds chirp
secrets of Jim's disapperance


Jim Thompson the Thai Silk King and American former spy came to the Highlands in 1967 March 26 for a holiday and mysteriously disappeared in the Highlands. Till this day, no trace of his whereabout has been found. The Moonlight Cottage where he had stayed is still around and has been gazetted as a heritage building. There is a Jim Thompson Cafe at the Cameron Highlands Resort even. Cameron Highlands is famous for its cool clime, tea, strawberries, flowers and vegetables.
