Kathmandu Pt 1

Last December my family and I flew to the Himalayas for 7 days.
This is my 2nd visit to this country after 12 years.
Here are some of the pictures I took when we first touched down the holy land.
It's similar to my hometown, Ipoh- mountains and hills, only more mountains and hills in Nepal.
I will be showing you my entire trip in different posts as there are more than a thousand pictures in the disc.
You just have to be patient :)

The icey cold Himalayas in the far distance.
(It looks like floating clouds.)

Karma Pema welcomed us with his big smile and guided us to the car and the hotel.
The Airport was extremely crowded- very common in Asian Countries.

Hotel Ngudrup.

The airport is in Kathmandu and the hotel is in Boudha,
pronounced as Bao Da.
(it's located approximately 15 minutes away from the airport without traffic jam).

The hotel's website.
It's near to the stupa plus... shoppingg!!!!

The hotel is small, warm and comfy enough for us to stay for some night.
Their staff members are very friendly.
They made us breakfast too! :)

Then, Nepali lunch in one of the few clean/ hygienic restaurants in Baudha.
*tummy screaming for food*

Spot my brother's WAI SEK (greedy) face!


My all time favourite Nepali Tea which taste similar to Teh Tarik.

Momoe, Dumplings in English.

I was amazed at their decorations/ interior design.
It's very different from the streets outside of the restaurant.

After that,
we went to a nearby monastry to visit a monk (Lama Thutop) who was living in Ipoh.
And here's the awesome view from his bed room.
Boudha Stupa, one of the sacred places in Nepal.

There is a story behind this STUPA which I will post soon.

We headed to Namo Buddha (a hill just opposite the Himalayas) on the 2nd day.

Aussie Day 2011

Hello there.
I celebrated Australia Day with Jia Min's church people where we went to a friend's aunt's house for dinner (they cooked!) and to wait for the skyworks.

This house is amazing because it's more than a 100 years old and they have an ancient bathroom- think ancient Rome.
I was told that the government wants the owner to maintain the house and forbid them to demolish it.

Perth City view from the attic.

Here's where 80 of us sat down to enjoy the thirty minutes fireworks display.

All in all, had a wonderful day with them.
That's my first Australia Day in Perth :)

3rd Week of 2011

Hello peeps.
I have nothing much to update these days as I'm currently busy at something else.
Here are some of the stuff from the phone.
I am currently addicted to Strawberry Cream Oreo as it goes well with MILO.

My breakfast. For today.
Very antioxidants.
Cherries, Grapes, Plum.
Took this picture on the kitchen table.
Did not edit anything.
Which explains Perth's strong sunlight.

Had a break with KIT KAT the day before.
I used to love kit kat and had a bar a day.
But not anymore.

Tea time with the babe @ Miss Maud.
Pumpkin Soup and Tuna Sandwich.

I am desperate for a new camera's memory card.

First week of 2011

Some pictures I took during the week:

Sunny day.
Hate it sometimes.
It burns my skin.

Sister baked chocolate cake and chocolate chips cookies.

My first try of FIT CHIPs.

Googled my name and found out that:
