There was a graveyard right in front of me

(viewed 729 times)
We went to our old house yesterday afternoon in Ampang to get my mails. On our way, Oya fell asleep. After taking the mails from my former landlord, we decided to drop by at the nearest Super mart to buy some groceries. Since Oya was asleep, hubby had to do the shopping instead accompanied by Lissa. Ally was asleep too. So I stayed in the car. We parked our car at the parking space right in front of an old graveyard (nobody is buried there anymore I guess). Really in a sorry state, maybe nobody ever came to visit their dead loved ones anymore, maybe because they're dead too by now and buried somewhere else. There's a stagnant green pool right smack in the middle of the graveyard and there were lots of crows. I can't help but to notice there were many 'little' graves. Once upon a time, ages ago there were many grieving parents visiting the graveyard. I can only imagine their despair and sadness having to let go of their little ones, young ones. I recited few verses from the Quran for those who were buried there in the old graveyard and I prayed that Allah would always give His blessings to my family and protect us. Amin.

My backyard

Then (a mini banana plantation) and now (a mini fortress with papaya trees, pandan and daun kari (dunno what to call in English help! hehe) LMAO)

It cost me MYR2,000 to build that wall. I feel more secure sleeping at night now, check out the broken glasses on top of the wall hehe.

Oh btw, that's Oya, trying to drown her barbie.

National Park Malaysia - Jungle Trekking

What we found in the rainforest while trekking to the infamous hanging bridge a.k.a canopy walkway - wild flower and a giant centipede.

National Park Malaysia - Canopy Walkway

(viewed 2702 times)
In National Park Malaysia (rainforest reserved), is said to be the longest canopy walkway (hanging bridge) in the world at 45 metres high and 510 metres long.

After about 30 minutes (can't recall anymore) of jungle trekking, we reached the walkway checkpoint. I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw the walkway, I didn't know it was gonna be that high and long! If we had known, we wouldn't be taking the kids along. There was no turning back so we went ahead: hubby, me, Lissa (who was 8 that time), Ally (5) and Sophia (2).

Sophia was the hardest to handle coz midway on the canopy walkway she refused to walk and asked to be carried instead! That was one hell of experience, my heart nearly stopped beating..there we were on top of a hanging bridge that felt like it's ready to topple over with a crying toddler!

In the end hubby carried her halfway the bridge but when we reached the steps (like in the pic) we managed to coax her to take the steps slowly with hubby holding her hands.

Phew..old pics sure brought out a lot of memories, we were out of touch with the civilised world for 3 days, that was the day when we came home and found out Tsunami has wiped our major populations in Thailand, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, Malaysia were affected too :(
