Dong Shan (东山), China (中国) :东山关帝庙, 有准哦!Been Blessed here! :)

China Part 8 - Dong Shan (东山), FuJian (福建)
寡妇村 (Village of Widows), 马銮湾 (MaLuanWan), 风动石风景区 (Feng Dong Shi Scenic Area) and 关帝庙 (Guan Di Temple)

It was evening when we arrived at Dong Shan after a long trip from Yong Ding (永定).


- Sunset of Dong Shan -

Gorgeous sunset. :) Caught my eye with the details of fisheries home.


- Village of the Widows 寡妇村 -

It was a very short evening with historical stories for us to understand bits of Dong Shan.


- Village of the Widows 寡妇村 -

Sad story I could say, imagine the women waited for her husband to come back to China for her whole life since the day the man left for war. And in the end, bringing a new wife aside. :(

And we proceed to the beautiful beach of "Ma Luan Wan" 马銮湾.


- "Ma Luan Wan" 马銮湾 -

A short walk along the beach! Well, I still our perfect view of Tanjung Aru Beach! Horray!


- Dong Shan Map -


- "Ma Luan Wan" 马銮湾 -


- Happy Birthday to me! -

It was my first time celebrate away from Malaysia. :) Our kind tour leader from China arranged a surprise cake for us!

After our dinner and its time to rest and another day to go in Dong Shan!


- 风动石风景区 (Feng Dong Shi Scenic Area) -

Had a simple breakfast before we start our day. :) 

A short walk and we could see a perfect calm view along the coastal area of Dong Shan. It was really amazing how China have uplifted so much to suits the world and yet still keeping the authentic ones.

Open wide with the sea, breezy morning we had!

海阔天空哦!!


- 风动石风景区 (Feng Dong Shi Scenic Area) -

Brief introduction about the surrounding of that fishery village. Bricks houses along the coastal.


- 风动石 (Feng Dong Shi) -

The huge stone which magically won't fall down. I wonder.

You know what? There's a phrase that China always say,

"the more you imagine an object (stone), the more it sees like what you imagine."

Plenty of stones for us to imagine and with tales.


- 风动石 (Feng Dong Shi) -


- 风动石风景区 (Feng Dong Shi Scenic Area) -

Ain't they gorgeous?


- 关帝庙 (Guan Di Temple) -

The temple was closed for renovation that time and we have been directed to another temporary building for prayers and fortune teller. 

The temple was one of the oldest temple in China and of course, the temple also well known for its prayers to be granted. Well, I do believe in heaven of Gods. I did ask about my future and it seems pretty correct when i think back.

It just a wise things to do. :) We can't run away from the question of career and relationship.


- 关帝庙 (Guan Di Temple) -

The sculptures on top of the temple roof. The heaven of gods. :)

And we were heading to Guang Zhou! Finally Guang Zhou! Lots to see and lots to love!

Happy weekend to you!

The Bean Factory 豆豆咖啡厂? Lido Plaza, @KKCity

It was my first visit to Bean Factory.

Cakes were good, coffee was nice. 

Moreover, I saw the marshmallows 棉花糖 above the cup of coffee serving at the next table. @_@  (And, it will be my next try out.)


- Bean Factory -

I love the taste of their cakes, generous amount of chocolate and cream. Bean Factory left me a good impression that they will make sure their cakes are freshly serve everyday. After 9.00pm (if not mistaken), 50% OFF!


- Coffees -

Coffee and Latte with homemade cookies! I love this!

Do Famous Amos ring the bell?


- Beverage and Food -

Not to be mean, but perhaps they can write in a better handwriting or draw with style.


 - The Counter -

Well, I might drop by again!

Brunch at Fook Yuen 富源, Oceanus Waterfront Mall, #KKCity

Everyone in town are starting to talk about Oceanus Waterfront Mall.
 
Non the less, Fook Yuen 富源 extended their business to this new mall in town and now serving with more varieties at the golden triangle of #KKCity!

No matter the locals or tourists, they know about the soft bread serve by Fook Yuen. Some of them said that it was like eating "air", which I'm not sure how's that feel. (haha)

Fook Yuen = BREAD AND MILK TEA!


- Signature Teh C -

In Malaysia, we called it as Teh C, in fact, its milky tea. The thick tea and milk combination made one addictive beverage that local love!


- The Signature drinks and Roti Kahwin -

Direct translation of "Roti Kahwin" is Married Bread! The married bread consist of coconut spread and the think cold butter. It's delish and eat like the local!


- Chilled Beverages -

I love the concept of this, chilled drinks and not with the ice inside the drinks. The ice dilute the good taste of the original drinks.

Now, lets us look at some other must know surrounding at Fook Yuen, Oceanus Waterfront Mall! :)


- Economic Side Dishes -


- Porridge/ Congee Area -


- Bakery -


- Muesli -

The bakery area. Selling fresh baked bread every day! And it's half price after 7.00pm to 10.00am!

Fook Yuen do take care of the quality of bread freshness. :)


- Air conditioning Zone -

As offered by Fook Yuen, Oceanus Waterfront Mall, it is the first Fook Yuen which provide air conditioning area, how can we don't wanna sit in at this comfortable area? Don't they have beautiful Spanish tiles there? Personally chosen by the owner of Fook Yuen, Oceanus Waterfront Mall.


- Smoking Zone/ Open Air Zone -

In fact, with improvement by owners of Fook Yuen, it seems to be upgrading their level from normal kopitiam to high class and comfortable kopitiam.


- Signature Malaysian Drink -

Teh Tarik! It's open air and we took a photo of him!


- Beverage Selections -


- Counter at the Non Smoking Zone (Air Conditioning Zone) -


- Macarons -

There's macarons too!


- Dim Sum -

Offering varieties of Dim Sum which favourite by most of us! Don't worry, they are serving NO PORK at Fook Yuen! In fact, I do love their evergreen Dim Sum!

Now, EVERYONE CAN EAT AT FOOK YUEN!


- The last shot at Fook Yuen, Oceanus Waterfront Mall -

That's all for the day!

Yong Ding (永定), China (中国) : Experiencing Tu Lou (土楼之游)


China Part 7  - Tu Lou (土楼), Yong Ding (永定), Northern FuJian (福建)

It was one of our effort to visit the local village during our China trip. And after a long journey from XiaMen to Yong Ding, we stay at the best hotel in that village, we could feel the cold air inside our room as well, covered myself layers and we could still felt the cold air. In fact, we do have heater. Oh Gosh. 

We began our second day with an early visit to the clay house! 土楼 (Tu Lou) at their Scenery Area.


 - Cigarettes -

The local made cigarette, anyone? Spotted this during our nature call (WC visit).


- The Ticket -

I still keep them and nicely left inside my diary. :)

And let us took a long walk to the clay house!


- The Clay House behind -


- The Jump Shot -


- One of the old Clay House -

A short story of Tu Lou, each Tu Lou (either it is round or in block), it represent a family under one roof, with relatives etc. The more people stay in the Tu Lou. the more solid it will be. It means that with the human "energy" in side, the building will last longer!

The funniest story I heard during my trip was, the English back then thought that China has been building tombs to prepare to have war! From the satellite signal, it does look round and huge!


- Souvenirs -

China has been categorising Tu Lou as the World Heritage. It was really good to know more about China lifestyle for Chinese from other countries.


- Tu Lou in block -

This building is an old building, we were directed to the new one which is in rounded building.

You will be surprise when you saw chickens walking around. They raise chickens inside the building. OMG!


- Sweets -


- The beautiful sight -


- Tu Lou -

Here we are!

We went to visit one of the Tu Lou, we were lucky to see the nicely decorated building which they were going to held a wedding ceremony! :)

In there, we won't be surprise that people are selling souvenirs as well. Reasonable priced and try to bargain with them!


- Inside -

The hall and rooms surrounded.


 - The Hall -


- Families -


- Random Shot -


- The second Tu Lou in block -

It was very far difference with the round one we compared earlier. We were surprised with the lifestyle here. 

Yes, they still live in there. 


- Last shot -

I love the handbag I bought!

That's all!
