Qing Xin Ling Leisire & Cultural Village As Tour Guide

IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN HALF A YEAR since I last visited Qing Xin Ling, the leisure and cultural village here in Taman Saikat, Ipoh.  This morning brought me here again despite the hot weather and I noticed the place has indeed changed.... for better or worse, I prefer not to say.... hahahaha... 

Anyway despite the heat and sweat, we had a great time walking and listening to the golden oldies from the jukebox there....
Ok, at the entrance.. all ready to set out and GO!
The old jukebox that plays the oldies but goldies!
*Chin Tien Putt Hwey Chia*
Trying to imitate some Bollywood scene.... 
The lush greenery.... 
And hey... where are you going, Swanny?
Oh, she is also gazing at what I am doing too.... 
Admiring.....
Added huts for relaxation....
The hidden caves....
The woods....
..... And I....
Acting like a tourist too.... 
Not sure why this is here and someone probably might be thinking the same thing....
Oh oh... something is definitely not so right... 
A more shady area here.... 
But I like these Giant Leaves...
And the last one.... 
Having a FEEL of how the milling is done... 
*A pretentious pose*

  1. Claire, I think the jukebox is a good idea but I hope the music is not too loud. I agree with you, why is the "ship" there? Maybe a sampan will do ha ha! I like the photo of you with the giant leaves. I used to have one in my garden but no more.

  2. Every pix of you looks so stylo. I think you have posted this place once if I am right or is it a different place. Nice place but sad the water looks muddy.

    1. Yes, I agree with you, Irene.. the water is indeed not clear maybe due to the rain water or renovation...

    1. It is still under renovation in some parts... I hope they won't overdo it.. not a very big area and if overdone, the place will look congested..

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
