NASI AYAM PENYET BEFORE A RUNNING EVENT (FOR MY FRIENDS)


20th JANUARY 2017 ~ An old friend from college was in town (again) with her friends for another running event, and they came all the way from KL. [Just to run?] Puan Maslinda Mohd. Dahalan was my ex-coursemate from UPM TESL group. It was my pleasure to meet and take them to my favourite "nasi ayam penyet" [translate: smashed chicken rice] restaurant - LC Catering, for dinner.






It was just a short rendezvous but I was glad we managed to meet up. I guess I will be seeing her again with her running friends when they sign up for other event held in JB.

A NEW PARADIGM SHIFT FOR THE YEAR 2017


19th JANUARY 2016 ~ Puan Mazzelina was kind enough to invite us to her house and cooked special food for our academic discourse session. This should be some kind of paradigm shift for us.










Thanks Puan Mazzelina and Mr. Khir for the hospitality and awesome food. I think we should do this more often.

STROLLING ALONG NAM KHAN RIVER


6th DECEMBER 2017 ~ We decided to take a (long) stroll along the Nam Khan River which was actually on the other side of the town. I was quite confident, we would come back to the city just by walking downstream.








We reached at a spot which should be very significant - when the two rivers, Nam Khan and Mekong, met. We went down to the river bank to the moment. There were just us and a few people enjoying the scenery but soon after, more people started arriving.

so sweet ❤

We had been walking non-stop from day one since we arrived in Luang Prabang and we came across and saw many interesting things along the way. That is how you should do it when you go on a holiday.

VISITING THE TRADITIONAL ARTS AND ETHNOLOGY CENTRE


6th December 2016 ~ After the visit to the waterfall, we decided to see what was there in the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre which is situated at the town area. In other words, almost all the attractions are close to each other.




In this building, visitors learned about the lifestyle of the indigenous people of Laos which are related to cloth and accessories making - the traditional way. There were many traditional costumes were put on display, as well as the essential machines and raw materials which were needed to produce them.







































just a small incident

The place was quite small with limited exhibits but we still learned something new from there. I was glad I saw this place on the map. Drop by when you are in Luang Prabang.
