The Different Benefits To Having Fountains

There are various advantages to having fountains in a garden.  Garden fountains are able to produce relaxing sounds, they are beautiful, and they are highly appreciated by humans and animals.  In addition to these dominant benefits, fountains also present with several subtle advantages.  For example, the falling water can increase the surrounding air's level of humidity by injecting moisture into the air and making it fresher or cleaner to breathe.  By injecting moisture into the air, fountains are also able to remove airborne pollutants or allergens from the air.

1.  The Beauty Of A Garden Fountain

One of the first things people notice when they come across a fountain is the sight of the water rising and falling according to outdoor water feature ideas.  The attraction of this water movement is obvious.  Take into consideration 'Old Faithful' in the Yellowstone National Park where people flock to witness the working of this stunning geyser that has been functioning for longer than most people have been living.  At regular intervals the pressurized steam from the depths of the earth will be released via a hole in the earth's crust and 'Old Faithful' will spout forth the steam through its narrow opening.  This is an intriguing spectacle that produces a sense of awe among all people who witness it.

Fountains available on the market today will rarely mimic forces of nature similar to 'Old Faithful'; however, a smaller backyard water fountain can provide us with joy at anytime of the night or day.  Garden water fountains are easily purchased and range from small models to tall fountains that present with their own ponds.  The tall options are preferable because they increase the babbling sound of the water and allow placement of lights to provide a shining effect on the water.

2.  The Advantage Of Falling Water

Aside from the unique visual display, a water fountain presents with several benefits that can be experienced on a subtle or unconscious level.  Water is crucial for survival and people are made mostly from water, so it makes sense that we would view clean water as a positive thing.  Unconsciously, all people hope that they are never left far from water or need to live without it for a long time.  When a cascade of water is produced, this element is injected into the surrounding air and the particles of water mix with the air to provide us with water.

The added moisture in the air is highly beneficial as it humidifies the air making it healthier and easier to breath.  Outside of the human body, the water particles will combine with airborne particles and remove any dust or free radicals from the air.  This is why air feels cleaner or fresher when in the vicinity of a fountain.  One of the best methods to feel this effect is by hiking up to the base of a waterfall and breathe in deeply. 

Many people perform this act at the Yellowstone Falls in the Yosemite National Park in the US.  It feels so good that many will sit down in the spot and enjoy the environment.  If you are fortunate, you may be able to see a rainbow over the waterfall - a natural effect of the spraying water from the waterfall.  Waterfalls and rainbows have always been considered a sign of beneficence and good fortune.

3.  Water In A Garden

The majority of people do not reside by a natural waterfall; however, it is possible to bring water fountains to landscapes and gardens as a substitute for waterfalls.  This has been done for thousands of years and the type of fountain used will depend on the country, its culture, and the dreams of the person using the fountain.  Water fountains are available in all sizes ranging from balcony urns to large status.  Nowadays, the fountains can also be created using different colors to suit the structure of the garden.

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…
