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 injustice...lol..
but if u see them in real
u will know what i mean...

  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...

  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...

  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.
