Ruby Tuesday: A Garden of Red Flowers in Genting


 

The sight of of this lovely garden of red flowers is just one of the many spectacular views we saw while riding the caterpillar in Genting Highlands.  There wasn't much crowd yet because we got there at dawn which sent chills to our spine.  I must have covered myself with layers of clothing that day.

Genting Highlands in Malaysia is a six-hour trip from Singapore.  We left Singapore at 10PM and arrived in Genting Highlands at almost 5AM.  There are plenty of things to do in Genting Highlands, tourists can stay at the Genting First World Hotel, shop at branded shops and have fun with different amusement rides.  This is also where the famous wind tunnel can be found.  I would have loved to try it and have a picture with my face distorted as I tumble and spin inside the machine but it's kinda grand for a traveler on a budget like me.

Ruby Tuesday #7: A red truck of pop corn



How wonderful it would be if this was a real truck full of popcorn! Well, it is but it's a popcorn store inside the Universal Studio in Singapore. My Universal Studio experience is probably one of the happiest of my recent past.  It's great to be able to bring out the inner child in us once again as we watched and guffawed like carefree kids while watching Far, far away and giggling like wide-eyed kids whenever we see Kung Fu Panda or Puss in Boots.  

There were a  lot of attractions to see but trying to see them all in a day would be too impossible.  I hope I'd be able to go there in the future again and I would love to be with real kids because it's such a joy to see kids really happy.  See more red here.

This blog's got a new name

Surprise! I decided to blog again after several attempts to blog again.  I got caught so caught up with my desire to lose weight hence blogging took a back seat for almost a year.  But now that the weight loss goal's met and I feel that I have been so brain-dead for ages, it's time to stroke the keys again and let my stories be told.

To begin with, I got tired with the old title of this blog so I decided to change its title to "My Happy Feet" to share chronicles of my travels.  I am not a very well-traveled person and I have been to few places in my life that I envy people who had been to so many places and have experienced so many cultures.  It's a fact that life is so short and we have to make the most out of it and one of the things that one should strive for in this short life is to see as much of the vast beautiful world out there and experience different cultures and weathers of course. I remember as a child, how I wished to be able to see and touch a real snow. 

This year proved to be a milestone for me because for the first time, I was able to step outside the Philippine Soil.  I know that may sound pathetic but like the twist to the old cliche goes, it's better late than later.  It was a very fun and thrilling experience and it revived in me a feeling of wanting to see the world, more of it.  And this blog will always remind me of that desire.
