Hello! Welcome to the first post of my Melodious Friday feature.
Sitting here thinking of which music to share, it was then I decided that today I would like to dive in and share something deeply soulful.
If you’re craving for a good old wan tan mee (雲吞面 aka dumpling noodles) in Klang, I would recommend a good place to go — Indiana Cafe.
Wan tan mee is a common street food which can be found practically in all food courts, however to find a tasty one requires an adventurous foodie soul.
It is a dish of egg noodles served with wan tan, slices of char siew (BBQ pork), leafy vegetables usually choy sum, garnished with spring onions and available in dry or in soup variation.
Cameron Highlands is a beautiful hill station in the state of Pahang, 6 years since my first visit there.
It is named after Sir William Cameron, a British surveyor who in 1885 was commissioned by the old colonial government to map out the Pahang-Perak borders.
The climate on the hill is cool thus became a flourishing home to our locally produced tea and other fresh produce like strawberries, vegetables and flowers.
I remember visiting the Boh Tea plantation. There was a cafe and I spent some time sitting at the terrace, sipping hot tea overlooking the green valley, just like this picture above. Now that’s a great relaxation, too bad I didn’t have a book with me!
I felt like I’ve missed out many locations during the last trip. If I were to visit again, I would make a better travel plan with better photo shooting skills to explore this beautiful land.
If you’re a fan of tea, I highly recommend the strawberry tea which is available at most of the tea shops on the hill. It tastes heavenly when you have it with milk. Remember to buy it while you’re there because it is only available there!
Just before leaving the highlands, I saw this cute plushy strawberry keychain in a souvenir shop. I loved it the moment I saw it and “plucked” it for keeps, as a memory of my holiday there.
In response to this week’s Camera Lucida — The Park Bench
This picture of 2 beach benches were taken in Redang Island, one of the beautiful islands on our east coast.
That was my first trip to Redang and I fell in love instantly.
How I yearn to return to the island’s embrace once more.
The surreality of crystal clear waters and blue skies.
Camera Lucida is a weekly photo challenge hosted by Julia every Wednesday on her blog MyRedPage.
I know I’ve promised this a week ago.
I was suppose to post the books I acquired during the BookFest but last week I was so tied up with Blogging 101 that I have to reschedule to today.
I was super excited delighted to have discover the #1 book where 2 masters in their own league talked about music. One being Seiji Ozawa, my favourite conductor and Haruki Murakami, a famous contemporary writer.
Unbelievable 15 days! That’s how I feel about Blogging 101.
Aww… The Blogging 101 assignments had reached an end yesterday. However today and tomorrow Blogging U will wrap up with a few suggestions about what to do next for our blogs, as below.
Some reflection for today:
This summer course is counting down to its last days, save tomorrow and Sunday for the extra homework, here is today’s task: Develop a regular feature for your blog.
I love Fridays, who doesn’t? 😛
So I choose to do a feature on Fridays…
Something that is an important part of me.
Thus I would like to introduce you to… Melodious Friday!
What is that? You may ask.
To answer that, Melodious Friday is the day where I would like to spread the joy of music.
Music has been around since the existence of human. Aside from speaking language, we communicate and express ourselves via tunes and music.
Every Friday I shall pick a piece of song/music from different genres along with some brief stories to share with you. Hopefully after listening to it, you would fall in love, or get inspired by the melodious music.
I would also welcome you to share your favourite songs with me too, whether it’s your beach collection, favourite song in shower or a piece of music that moved you deeply.
Let’s us speak in the universal language of music! ❤
Note: Melodious Friday will start next Friday (31/7) 😀
