Temple. Done Up So Nice.

The temple behind my condo was renovated and today while at the pool I spotted it. The sun shinning onto it was so nice. Especially as a big black cloud was looming over head.

Malaysia Drive In's and Drive up to Post Boxes?

You got to just love Johor Bahru in Malaysia, with its Drive in restaurants, drive in Banks, drive in ATM Stations, but for the best was in Johor Bahru, the Main post office are kind enough to put a post box at drivers window level, so you don't even need to get out of the car to post mail.

This may not sound like anything special but let me tell you it is. Why? well because 90% of mail boxes are placed near a junction and is usually hard to park so when I saw this I thought that wow this is so much easier.

Keep up the good work PosLaju. I for one appreciate the thoughtful placement of them post boxes in JB.

Any one spotted one of these near them?

Great News! For Causeway Users…..JB to SG

Yes today was the start of school holidays in Singapore so the normal mad rush and jams over the Causeway was not their today it was so quiet around 7am.

The last four days from SG into JB has been totally slow or not moving at all and lots of people sounding horns as they get frustrated.

The Good News is with no school buses plying back and forth the roads are not congested, of course the later in the day then it may build up due to demand but early mornings should be better for your trip over to SG.

But if you do hit the Jams try not to get annoyed just put some music and accept that you are on one of the busiest Customs Boarder in the world.

My Girls Playing Together

I just love watching my two girls Mia and Suki playing together, and nothing gives them a better time than cardboard boxes and today was no different except the play things were from inside the boxes.

My Daily Bread

Woke up this morning with a desire for some herb breads, It's easy to make your own bread, I don't even measure out now the ingredients.

Dump all into basin mix, prove shape let it rise and bake. all in all it takes about 1,1/2 hours from start to finish but the results are great.

What i like about making my own bread is the kneading process being able to use ones hands in a creation of the breads is so relaxing and tension release you get is fantastic.

So much so I now do it each morning around 5. 30am and here i am now with a nice coffee and toasted bread with peanut butter and marmalade.

such a good healthy start to the day.

Getting Back Into the Swing of Things after a Holiday

I find it quite funny really that after a relaxing holiday, I need another one to get over it.

I mean, it feels so hard to get back into the swing of things after a holiday in which you relaxed and unwind, one would think I should be now full of beans but it does not work that way with me.

Once my body unwinds I find it hard to kickstart it back into routine, maybe its just me but be interesting to see or hear from others that feel the same.

Danga Bay at Night - May 2012

Wed night I was at Danga Bay - and had nice evening meal at Lazio Restaurant and Cafe.

Then a nice leisurely stroll along the Marina and bay.

Such a nice way to relax after a tiring day Shopping with my relatives who were over from the UK.

The bar area of Lazio Restaurant and Cafe was a nice place to retreat to after a superb meal, as their was a man/ woman Duo singing, and I have to say they were really good and the man had such a lovely tone to his voice I could have stayed all night -- ha ha I nearly did.

God's Wings - Nice Story

After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park , forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage. 

One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. 

Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick. When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings. 

The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. 

Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast....because she had been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.

Look at the Fantastic Feather artwork.

No matter what your job, you should always try and make it interesting .....

Ha ha This could take off, here in Malaysia they love bowling….

Deer and Cat Make Friends - We can learn a lot from Animals

Enjoy! This picture it was taken in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. 'It's just too awesome not to share. Deer visits cat in yard every morning! The owner finally took pics.

Those we love don't have to be exactly like us. Life is too short for drama and petty things so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly, forgive quickly and pray often! "Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest, it's about those who came and never left your side."

Too cute to not share!!! Have a great day!!!

Shock!! Normally when I look towards the causeway all I can see is the tail lights of cars, vans,and  buses etc queuing up, but today so clear, they must be taking the day in-lieu for the bank holiday over the weekend.

Just as well as the weather today is bad - strong winds and rain. hope it clears up as I have relatives coming to stay from the UK.

Z = Zoo in Johor Bahru.Final Entry of the A 2 Z Challenge 2012

Johor Bahru has it's own Zoo, and while it's local and cheap to enter - From my visit I feel the place needs a hugh upgrade as the animal containment areas were like the ones from the 70's all concrete with spiky bars on top.

However from what i saw, the animals are being looked after and for most seamed happy with the surroundings.

They should spend lots of money to bring it up to 2012 standards, even if it means increasing the cost of entry. to support the rebuild, I feel people don't mind paying more because the people going to the zoo do so at their choice therefore would like to see the animals living in good conditions.

No reason why it could not be a good night attraction if done right, the setting would be quite spooky and add to the excitement.(charge More for this of course)

The Sultan wanted it accessible to his people and the cost remains so low, so to keep it low they need to come up with other events to offset that cost.

The Johor Bahru zoo is one of the oldest in the country. It was built in 1928 by Sultan Sir Ibrahim and was handed over to the state government to manage in the 1960s and open to the public in 1962.

There are 100 species of animals in the 5ha compound. The entrance charge is RM2 for adults and RM1 for children. The zoo opens daily from 8am to 6pm and is visited most during public holidays and school holidays.
