Rainforest Trees At The Taiping Lake

My last trip away from home was the Singapore getaway in the middle of September, seems like a long time to me though it was only around two months ago. So when my friend suggested to go Taiping for a short trip, I didn't hesitate, after all, Taiping is just less than an hour away from Ipoh...

I started the journey early on Saturday and we had a nice stroll at the Taiping lake... due to the rain, the plants and the trees glitter and the lake is not "drought looking" anymore...
We parked our car at the hotel and started our stroll here...
And then I realize I forgot to bring my camera... sigh...
First time capturing flowers using my iPhone 3... 
I don't know the name of this flower.. how about you?
Can never grow tired of admiring the greens here in Lake Gardens...
 Serene looking, ain't they...
Even this tree caught my eye....
Looking at the pictures now, I must not underestimate my iPhone 3 leh....
Saw a group of Bird watchers... they are from the Nature Society....
Love the reflections...
Can someone spot a No Entry sign in the lake?
I wonder why the sign is there...
Maybe they are forbidden to enter that area....
I mean the row-row, row your boat-ers.....
Walk coming to an end...
Soon we reached the hotel after one big round... 
 
 I heard one time they wanted to cut down the Rainforest trees! 
But after much protest, it was called off... 
Such beautiful greens....
Such a beautiful place to visit... time and time again...

  9. i heard Taiping is just 45min drive from Ipoh, can go there more often lah since it's so near.. and this Taiping Lake is ever so beautiful, from the photo it looks like those overseas scenery printed on the calendar.. of course when you are there, surely don't feel that, mainly because of the weather and also the people :p

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
