Intended to write a story
and share my nice adventure
of places I had just been
but my body and mind are out of sync.
Feeling droopy and sleepy
fingers resting on keyboard but not moving
words got stuck in my head
can’t find their way into this page.
The ideal solution
to get my message across
with the least effort is through
pictures that speak louder than words.
My vision of Hong Kong Airport with a different perspective – our first stopover
A hawker selling ‘stinky’ Tofu in Huizhou
Strips of sun dried pork – a local delicacy in Huizhou
Frogs for sale in Huizhou supermarket
All sorts of dried seafood available in supermarket – Huizhou
Chinese sausages of all sorts available in Huizhou Supermarket
Sweet Potatoes for sale by roadside hawkers – whose potatoes are these? whose hand? Not mine
A dragon rock in Huizhou
Ladies from Huizhou walked kilometers up the mountain. A favourite past time is to play homemade shuttlecock with a ping-pong bat or kick the shuttlecock lifting up their ankle (if you can figure it out) – shuttlecock kicking game.
During festivals, locals walked up the mountain to this Wishing Tree, wrote their wishes on red paper, threw it up on the tree and may their wishes come true – and that model in the picture is no local resident but my daughter throwing a ‘good luck charm’ wishing for ?????
This is the first part of my recent trip – a visit to Huizhou, Guangdong Province, China.
Now I am fully awake when it is past midnight !
Little Borneo Girl had been away.
The last three weeks had been a great time of family reunion and of course lots and lots of feasting.
Sharing a photo each of the places I visited from Huizhou, Guangzhou, Macau, Bali, Kuching and Singapore. Amongst the many shots, these are significant shots of those places visited.
To Huizhou for JoJo & Vincent’s Wedding Dinner
Beijing Lu (Road) in Guangzhou for those who love shopping
Macau’s most famous landmark, Ruins of St Paul’s
Mulia Nusa Dua, Bali is the place to be to relax and unwind
Once upon a time, our ancestral home was on this vacant piece of land in Tabuan Rd, Kuching where I grew up. We returned to Kuching this trip for a family reunion on the occasion of JoJo (my daughter)’s Wedding.
