A Trail Along Red Rock Canyon

ANOTHER DAY WAS SPENT GOING TO THE RED ROCK CANYON... It was just an hour away from Las Vegas and this time we took our own sweet time to get ready unlike the other day when we went to the Grand Canyon which was a five hours drive away.

For nature lovers especially, this is one of the places not to be missed.  Though I am not well-versed with plants and gardening, I managed to know some of the plants' names and most of them are cactus actually... but sorry, I think I cannot remember them all... According to what I heard, this is the best time to see the cactus blooming.  In another month or two, the land will be dry and out...

The few of us walked along the trail and saw some interesting carvings at the foot of the mountain...

Setting out on the road...
As we approached the Red Rock....
This time we did not stop to take the Red Rocks...
Beaver Cactus...
Barrel Cactus...
Cannot remember this though...
We hiked and followed the trail to the deeper side of the mountains...
The carvings on the mountain....
We saw someone climbing the mountain.... and I felt so scared for her.... 
I zoomed in to the climber... 
She looked like "helpless" as the man at the top of the mountain waited... 
That's us... yes!
And leaving our "prints" here before leaving...
Red Rock Canyon...

  1. The cactus is beautiful!! I see the Beaver Cactus is named because it is shaped like the tail of a beaver! Oh, that lone climber! It looks like she has no ropes or gear to catch her.

  2. I am not sure I would be that adventurous to climb the mountain. Interesting carving on the mountain though.

    Thanks for sharing the photos, Claire. I feel that I have been there.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
