5 Hiking trails to experience in your lifetime

Spending time outside can bring health benefits not just to the body, but even to the mind and soul. One of the best ways to get in touch with nature is through hiking. If you’re looking for your next big adventure, check out some of the trails that you would not want to miss below.


1. Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal – the highest point on planet Earth is practically on every hiker’s bucket list. There’s no denying the breathtaking scenery that you will encounter, and the fact that you will be on the highest place on earth will make it a glorious experience. But aside from that, you also get to experience the culture of the locals by visiting places such as the village of Namche Bazaar or the Buddhist monastery at Pangboche.


2. Tour Du  Mont Blanc – if you’re looking for an adventure that will be you to three countries, then circle the Mont Blanc. It can take as fast as 3 days, but if you want the full experience, it will take 7 to 10 days. This adventure of a lifetime will bring you to France, Italy, and Switzerland. Prepare yourself to see the dramatic glaciers of the Swiss Alps and of course the Mont Blanc. If you’re not in a hurry, take the time to enjoy the villages you will be passing through. Get to know the locals and don’t forget to enjoy the delicacies each place has to offer.


3. Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand – the country has some of the most diverse landscapes on earth. When you go on the TE Araroa Trail, you will not only get a glimpse of an active volcano but even a forest that looks like it belongs in another world. Get to know the culture of the Maori as you go through the river valleys. Book your tour around October through April which is the peak season for traveling there.


4. Overland Track in Tasmania – if you’re looking for a place that will offer not only the beautiful landscape but wildlife as well, the Overland Track is Australia is perfect. This place offers everything you could ask for in a hike. You’ll not only experience solitude but a variety of landscapes, from a rainforest, alpine lakes and mountains. You’ll also get the chance to see animals like the Tasmanian devil, the platypus, and the wombat. Allot around six days for this kind of adventure that can take you around Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St. Clair.


5. Inca Trail in Peru  - if you want a trail that will take you to one of the most beautiful sceneries in the world, choose to go on the Inca Trail. The hike will go through 26 miles of mountain scenery, ruins, a jungle and of course at the very end, you will get to behold one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Machu Picchu. The best time to go travel to the Inca trail and other Machu Picchu treks would be from May to September.

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
