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

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
