X'mas Trip: Part Deux

At a standstill

Fried Shrimp Rolls

Dined at Shanghai 10 @ Genting Highlands and tried these Avocado Paste Balls - they weren't that appetizing afterall

Feeling the mountain breeze through my fingers 

Here's wishing everyone good luck in all your endeavors in the coming new year!

X'mas Trip: Part Une

This year, my family decided to spend Christmas out of town, on a mountain an hour away from Kuala Lumpur, in a French-Themed Village cum Resort - Colmar Tropicale. Boy, was I thankful this Christmas was gonna be a cooling one. I hope you'll enjoy these.. inept visuals I snapped here and there!

Detoured to an old restaurant in KL just so we could taste the same braised meat we did a few years back - we got disappointment in return due to their devolution into commercialised methods of cooking 

A nearby pushcart stall with an elderly couple making and selling traditional deep-fried snacks

Medieval Knights' Armor Vests hung on the walls of our lobby

Worn but pleasant looking shelf in the middle of our living room

Potted plants right in front of our living room window

Looking through our bedroom window on the 2nd floor of the apartment

... I had to air them

Just an ordinary salad I compounded with the available ingredients on the buffet table for dinner

The end of Day 1

Stayed tuned for X'mas Trip: Part Deux! A very Happy New Year to all of you in advance.
