More Critters From Tanjung Bungah Beach, Penang.

For today's post, here are the remaining critters shots taken at the Tanjung Bungah beach in Penang. I didn't expect to see some of these critters at the beach but they were there. I will start from the roof top where the swimming pool is.
A shining black crow perched on a lamp post.

It flew down to get a drink from the swimming pool.

Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow [seed]

nor reap [the harvest] nor gather [the crops] into barns,

and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them.

Are you not worth much more than they?

(Matthew 6:26, Amplified Bible-AMP)

Chicken at the beach.
These critters belong to the fisherman community.
Taking a cat nap.
 I am riding a skateboard.
 Would you like to join me?
 A curious puppy. 
 With sad eyes and big upright ears.
It followed us to the beach.

 It wanted to make friends with me. It came to lick my toes.
 So sad to see us leave.....goodbye, my friend......

Picking The Right Wedding Dresses And Bridesmaid Dresses.

I love weddings and I am sure many of you feel the same too. It is a beautiful day for two unique individuals coming together to start a new life united as one. From then on, they will live with each other, to have and to hold, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do them part. A beautiful and solemn beginning to a marriage life for the newly wed.
Talking about weddings, the stars of the events are the bride and the groom and then followed by the co-stars, i.e. the bridesmaid and the groomsman. Weddings can be a grand one or just a simple event, depending on the budget. But the highlight of the day is for the bride to be dressed in her best and that is why picking the right wedding dress is very important.
Some brides like to dress in a long flowing wedding dress with long train. There are others who are more adventurous and want to dress differently. Some prefer the short or mini wedding dresses. Whatever your preferences or choices, there is a wide selection of fashionable and gorgeous wedding dresses waiting for you at PickWeddingDresses. Here, you can choose wedding dresses of whatever styles for whatever shapes and sizes to fit your budget. The wedding dresses are made from the most exquisite fabrics and intricate finishes.
I have always like lace materials. There is something in the lace materials that attracts me. That could possibly be the reason why I love wedding dresses because most of them are made of lace materials. Besides the wedding dresses, the bride to be will also have to look into the bridesmaid dresses if you want to include them in your wedding. While you are browsing through your wedding dresses, at the same time you can select your bridesmaid dresses too. In this way, it is easier to match the bride;s and bridesmaid dresses both in style and colours.

From Penang To Ipoh - A Short Visit To Taiping.

Travelling from Penang back to Ipoh, we made a short visit to Taiping. Our friends wanted to visit a relative in Taiping town. Before that we stopped at Antong Coffee Mill, tasted their coffee and bought some coffee. After that, we drove on to Taiping town.
Antong Coffee Mill - the oldest coffee mill since 1933.
Notice the chain link fence behind the giant cup?
Taiping's market, consisting of 2 markets built separately.
The first was built in 1884 and the second was built in 1885.
Can you see the fence around the market?
A back alley behind shop houses.
After visiting our friends' relative, we walked over to a nearby shop for lunch.
Even though it was early about 11.30 am, business was good. We ordered chicken rice, popiah (wrapped spring rolls) and drinks for lunch. I got myself distracted and ended up without any photos of what we ate for lunch. 
 I only had the above shark and turtle photos found on the wall of the shop. 
 While walking back to our car, I passed by this shop and the above caught my attention.
"A loving old couple"
We stopped at a shop we passed by to buy some freshly fried banana fritters.
 More fence photos for Good Fences.
These fence shots were taken at the ferry jetty and the last one on the ferry.

You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds,

O God our Savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth,

even those who sail on distant seas.

Roof Top Views & Flowers From Tanjung Bungah, Penang.

After walking back from the beach which was a short distance from the hotel, we were still early and breakfast was not ready. We heard of the hotel's roof top swimming pool and we decided to take a look.
Photo #1 - It is an open air roof top swimming pool. We found a worker cleaning the pool.
Photo #2 - The view was good from on top of a 7 storey building.
Photo #3 - Golden reflection of the sunrise on the opposite high rise buildings and also on the railing around us. The stainless steel railing looks like gold railing.
Photo #4 - High rise buildings on the left and open sea on the right. The air was cool. This is the best time to take a morning swim before breakfast. No swimming for me because my swimwear got too tight for me to fit in. Lol!
Photo #5 - Hope you enjoy the photos taken from the roof top.

Photo 8 - From here we can see the main road in the above photo. 
Photo #9 - Pretty cloud formation over the hills.
Photo #10
The following flowers shots on our morning walk near the hotel.
Beautiful yellow and orange Heliconia flowers.
I had these in my garden but they started spreading all over the ground that I had to dug them out.
 I tried growing them in the pots but they didn't do well in pots. 
I also had the dark purple leafy plant on the right. It is the Cordyline red plants. They were removed from the garden when we replaced the old garden fence.
These Heliconia plants make good hedges around a building.
These colourful flowers and their leaves are great for flower arrangements.
Deep Pink Ixora flowers.

And why do you worry about clothes?

See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.

Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed

like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field,

which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire,

will he not much more clothe you - you of little faith?

(Matthew 6:28-30, New International Version-NIV)
