Greenery at North-South Highway

I take the highway every now and then, especially to go back hometown.
However, I never stopped at this point right before the tunnel at Jelapang, Perak.

I decided to stop by during my trip back for Chinese new year.

It is a park where you can overlook the forest area while taking some fresh air, and also for toilet (temporary type).

Magazine: 好吃 & hibi 日々and Haruki Murakami's 村上收音机2

I could hardly resist myself from buying books and magazines whenever I got the chance to visit Kinokuniya KLCC. I grabbed 2 magazines and 1 book during my last visit to the book store.

My 3rd collection of  好吃 (means tasty in Chinese), a Taiwan food magazine.
This issue is about vegetables, including a small guide book on buying quality vegetables as well as other farmers' harvest in Taiwan.
This is quite handy for chenyee as she plans to visit some farms in Taiwan.

hibi is originally a Japanese magazine on lifestyle.
The one I bought is a mixed of translated +original articles from Taiwan.
Also a backdated issue (published in Taiwan last year, original articles from the Japanese version from year 2006), hence the old style photos featured in the magazine.

This issue comes along with a recipe book. 
The cover is very clean n nice.
I thought it's a recipe book with recipes inside, but actually it's an empty one for you to write down yourself. ;P

I'd never read Haruki Murakami's book, although chenyee has a few of his books that had been translated to English.
This book compiles his weekly stories published in a Japanese magazine.
All short stories, some are funny and some are just his random thoughts. Interesting. :)

Happy 3rd birthday to photo crafts!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Photo Crafts!

In conjunction with their 3rd anniversary, for every purchase made with receipt ended with number 3, 6 or 9 will be entitled to one mystery gift!

And I was being lucky to have my receipt number ended with 6~

A Cycling KL Bicycle Map Project sharing session by Jeffrey Lim at Coffee Famille last Friday night.
He was to brief and hand out of maps to volunteers in helping to make the printed map a reality by the end of this year.
