A cocktail of photographs

Away for 2 weeks and I have so much to tell you all! Missing my blog soooo much! Not to mention this is the only thing I have with me right now :)

Thanks a lot for staying with me. The minute I posted the short note saying I'm Back, the visitor count shoots up! For that, I'm treating you all with photographs!! Here we go...

Genting Highlands
Yea, I went to Genting Highlands. Believe or not, there is no single photo of me taken :P I only have few not-so-good photos. This is the entrance of the SnowWorld in the Indoor Theme Park. I went inside once during my previous trip. Not as impressive as I expected it to be.

Genting Highlands
There was a Chinese troop performing. Reminds me of Chinese New Year :)

Genting Highlands
Gone were the days when swimsuits are meant to be 'sexy'. *sigh

Shameli's birthday
Enough about that boring trip. This is my cousin sister. She turned 6 last month. Cute ain't she?

Canon
Moving on to my another trip to rural area. It was a group 'trip'. We visited a home and the lady insisted us taking a look at her 'canon'. Apparently it has been there since the war time.

Mangosteen
I never had so much mangosteen in my life!! :D

What is this?
Found this "bird" in Segamat. The students called it Turkey-Chicken hybrid. Do you know what is it?

Grandma's 69th Birthday
Moving on to another birthday event - my grandma's 69th birthday celebration. Everything seem 'normal' in this photo.

Grandma's 69th Birthday
My nephew quickly blew the candles after we all sang the birthday song! Hehehe...

Grandma's 69th Birthday
They fought for the knife!!

Grandma's 69th Birthday
 Finally, peace prevailed!!

Ammu,

Great pics. Turkey is something like vankozhi in tamil and here during thanksgiving day people eat them as saying thank you which goes with the tradition and history of ancestors.
