The National Folk Museum of Korea - Part 1

These were taken two years ago during a trip to Korea. It was our first winter experience and was fun, and cold of course. Malaysians aren't really used to cold because of our very  hot and humid weather here, so it took some time to get used to the weather.

Great trip. Korea is a country that I would like to visit again soon.



Korean hats.

some of my fav....olden days shoes

With this, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas :)  Thank you to my dear blogging friends, it's good to be back blogging again.

Madrid, SPAIN

My always first preference of traveling is NOT via a group tour. However, sometimes it was necessary to cover to places in a very short time. Like this Spain and Portugal tour. While I loved every bit of discovering everything, it's too rush and unfortunately, there was more time spent on the bus than actual traveling. However....a good trip. Not sure about the flying though as there are no direct flights to Madrid, so total stopover at Frankfurt is almost 20 hours of flying + waiting.  Seems like forever actually.

Whenever I travelled in the past, I always used a proper camera. This time, I had with me a lighter semi DSLR, an Olympus camera which I love. However, I changed my handphone to a Sony Xperia Z5, and I can tell you, it's a whole load of FUN. What sold me the Z5 was the camera. 23 MP. That said it all, and I took more than 2500 pictures with my new Z5 and hardly used the Olympus.  So, I can tell you the Z5 camera is really great, for me at least.

I need more time to sort out all those photos, so meanwhile, here's sharing some:

I love taking photos of tour buses, even though I didn't have time for the hop-on-hop-off bus. Love the colours :)

That's the thing with group tour, you maximize all time. Immediately after the getting our bags from the terminal, it's TOUR time. No time to rest or recover.
First stop was the Royal Palace. Beautiful, will write about it more.

To round up our first day tour of Madrid, we visited the Real Madrid stadium. My son is a huge fan of football, so nevertheless, he was very excited.  Interesting for me as in Malaysia, I dont know of anyone visiting any stadium if there is no match :)

See you all soon :)

There was a change of plans.
The trip to Turkey didn't happen, but will be in the future.
Instead, we took a 12 days trip to Spain and Portugal.

Our annual haze is back. Indonesia burning is on every year, and we get the free haze from them, lasting weeks and posing tons of health problems for Malaysians here.

So, I am sharing my photos of a place I missed a lot. Cameron Highlands Resort by YTL is my favourite place to stay.

I love Cameron Highlands due to the cool weather.

Some pictures from the Resort.

From my balcony.

Breakfast setting, one of the best :)

Outside resort.

Wonderful fruit carving.

We are planning for a trip soon. Winter trip, though I would really, really love to have spring or autumn, but my husband wants to go for winter.

Next destination in December, Turkey. Hopefully all the planning goes well.


I miss blogging. A lot.
I miss travelling, even more.
