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.. :)

    vicy: thanks for coming by..

    Eugene: yes..must go for a breakaway at times one, u know.. dont always stay in penang la.. u must take yr family for outings at times.. it is the bonding that counts, not so much on the place..

  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!

  25. That place got lots of naughty monkeys around....LOL!

  26. The last time i passed by was 4 yrs ago. Still remembered that time was at night and hubby drove us to this garden.

    Felt a lil scared when passed by these old trees when they placed those green light under it, not sure is now still de same..hheheheh

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
