Natural Beauty To Behold

Whenever I go visiting to Taiping, I never missed going to the lakeside because I am really fascinated by the trees! These trees are not the normal ones, they must be more than a hundred years old (i think)... so gigantic and strong...the way the branches lean over to the lake, let me tell u... they are really a wonderful sight to behold! I can just stand there and feel amazed.... hahaha.. I guess, next to food, these beautiful sights never fail to escape my eyesight...

using my handphone to snap these
in a way...doing them some
but if u see them in real
u will know what i mean...


  1. Lake Garden......
    This place is an obligatory route of mine when I go to work every day...
    Beautiful scenery...

  2. Each time you see the tree, you must go and HUG it. It'll give u some sort of longevity or worst come to worst.. it'll transfer some of it's wrinkles to u.. hahaha.. but seriously speaking, it is a beautiful sight and that kind of place is my favourite. I can just sit there for hours doing nothing...

  3. tarts: u passed by each day? wow.. your eyes must be pretty healthy then..all the greens are soothing..

    merryn: no need to transfer also got so much wrinkles already la.. yeah, maybe u r right, the tree and i have something in common..we r rare species..hehehe...

  4. Saw these tree in my pic of Taiping. One day I must really go and see for myself

    Very serene

  5. I love trees.
    Malaysia does have a lot of trees but old trees, I must say that I love the trees in New England especially in Cooneticut.
    Thank you for taking those pictures,Claire.
    My mom is from Kampar.

  6. Haha... I pass by Lake Garden at around 6:40 a.m. Not green colour, but dark everywhere...
    After work, the sun is very glaring so not very soothing either...
    Seldom go there in the evening...

  7. well, that's my first place when we had picnic last time.

  8. These trees are simply stunning and amazing! What a nice place to sit and spend some time.

  9. smallkucing: yes, u will see what i mean when u r there..

    shakira: reminds me of the song, tie the yellow ribbon round the old oak tree...

    mingna: for locals, it might just be a norm.. for tourists, we like "wah...wah... " expressions.. hahaha..

    wenn: your sentimental memories then... :p

    cheryl: yeah, if it is maintained properly, it is a nice place to relax... esp for couples.. :)

  19. I like those trees! They look so nice! Can't find such trees in KL! Must visit Taiping one of these days!

  20. Lovely trees and great shots from a hand phone.

  21. I have one of these trees next to my neighbour's house when I was little. It was huge! For some reason, I don't really like it especially when the 'mao chong'/caterpillar season is around. You can actually see those caterpillars hanging all over the tree seeking for their victims. Oh no, I can't handle the itch! It's killing me.

  22. At taiping right? I love the scenes too. Very majestic.

  23. yeah i love lakes garden pretty much =p just posted some of them on my latest entry =p

  24. Nice! You come to Sibu or Kuching, also nice like that. Not totally spoilt by development yet! And at least 90% Chinese population - especially Sibu!

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
