Bukit Tinggi Resort


 On Saturday, we took the girls to Bukit Tinggi Resort in Pahang. Sha had planned to go there since last year as a family-day-out but it was never materialized until now. Anyway, it is a beautiful place for sight seeing perfect for family outing and even honeymooners... I spotted  a few young couples there...



It was raining slightly when we arrived but that didn't stop us from exploring the place.


And for the girls to enjoy the moment... the fact that it was drizzling intermittently had given the nice cool setting to the place...it was like autumn...





Mimi and Nani with the white swan, the last time we went when they were much younger, they were afraid to get near the swan...


The map of attractions at the resort



At the Japanese village...





beautiful flower at the botanical garden...


Hiking down the Japanese village in the rain...

The final stop was the Animal Farm, you need to pay RM 3.00 each to enter the farm which in my opinion is more suitable if you have small children where they can play with the rabbits and deer...


The cute guinea pigs...


Getting up close with the deer...

Big Bad Wolf


So, yesterday the girls finally succeeded talking dad into going to the the world's biggest book sale @ Big Bad Wolf books sale ... heard a lot about this craziest book sale in Malaysia but it was the first time for us to go there and we were super excited about it...


The entrance...


it was not so crowded when we first arrived at around 10.00 in the morning...we took our sweet time to search for the books of our taste but I was so disappointed with the selection of fiction...the books are either too old or uninteresting, at least to my preference...




Sha and Mimi with one of 2 boxes of the day's catch...another one was with dad...


Nani was searching for fashion design books, but to no avail...there were lots of books on cooking but limited choice for fashion design... double disappointment 





 These are some of the books that we managed to haul. We bought the total of 15 books @ RM 137. I think  it is a very good deal indeed and everybody seems to have the books of their choice after all and they want to go there again before it ends on 23rd December....

Herbs Garden


After going to MAHA twice, we started our own herb garden at the courtyard....


Rosemary and oregano


Green onion


beautiful 'misai kucing' and 'salam'


This mint is from Floria... still surviving...

There are more herbs that we planned to plant but lately it has been raining almost every day. I'm fear for my herbs to be over-watered and their roots will rot.  Need to build a shade before I get too ambitious and to protect them before it is too late...

MAHA 2012


It was the first time we went for MAHA 2012. We went there with one thing in mind, that is to buy a lot of herbs since hubby was so excited to start our own herbs garden in our courtyard...



The place is so big thus we need to board the tram to get to exhibition places(the showground). We arrived early at around 10 o'clock and just waited for a few minutes for the tram to arrive... 



The showground....we need to download the map so that we won't lose our way around...


There are a lot of animals on display and also for auction at the livestock showground...these deer attracted the kids' attention...


At the paddy showground...



I just love walking under this pergola with with veggies hanging above our heads...





Arrays of orchids at the Floriculture...


Vegetables on display...


It was a hot and sunny day, the girls were just too tired to explore more places


And finally at noon, before going back we stopped at the makeshift nursery to buy some herbs, this oregano is one of them...
