Friends at Fraser’s Hill

Last year we were so busy travelling – we managed 6 Β trips altogether. On top of that, we also had a wedding of our eldest child, Nuni and an engagement of our 3rd child. We also tried as much as we could, to visit my parents-in-law in Kelantan, now that FIL is not mobile πŸ™ .

One of the consequences to this life style change was very much less visits to Fraser’s Hill. Our last trip there last year was in October 2013. We wanted to go there in December, but during the only available time, DH was down with shingles πŸ™ .


So this year, again we hope to be able to spend more time at the hill. We were lucky that for the last 2 weekends we managed to do so. Not only we spent our weekends there, but we also had visitors with us πŸ™‚ .


Two weeks ago, Sseme and family came to join us for a night.


While taking them for a tour round this tiny place, I spotted a new attraction, and had it immortalised with this pic πŸ™‚ :


Here’s a pic of us having a breather at a nearby cafe


The next day we came down from the hill together because we were going to attend a wedding do at our friend’s place. On the way down, it was so misty, we decided to come down for some photo shoot πŸ™‚ .


and a selfie:


We also stopped at a bridge;


But hey!! There’s a car coming!! So we dashed away!! (in the mean time, the cameraman, Faim, kept on clicking the shutter, hahahaha!!!)


Here’s a photo of us taken at the gigantic signage, on our way down:


Then last week Ana came with her daughter and son. Here’s a photo of both of us taken in front of “Ye Olde Smokehouse” πŸ™‚


So, those were 2 wonderful, or rather “peaceful and quiet” weekends for us πŸ™‚

Last, but not least, thanks to these friends who kept us accompanied for the duration. We hope you enjoyed the tranquility as mush as us and will come back in the future πŸ˜‰



Taipei (Taiwan)


Note: Just before the fasting month last year, we managed a short trip to Taipei. I have been delaying my blog for this trip because I do not have the photos with me right now, and I’ve forgotten where they are kept πŸ™ ). I Β however want to clear the backlogs of blog entries, so, here you are, hahaha!!!
