We are going on a roadtrip tomorrow... without Dommy and Piper. They are both going to stay at home and take care of the fort.

Every year... at almost this time of the year, we go back home to Grandpa's hometown and visit him too. Its All Soul's Day for the Malaysian chinese folks.

Grandpa's hometown is in Lenggong, Perak. Its a wonderful small little town with two rows of shophouses... and a big bus station (where grandpa used to be station master). Its always a nostalgic trip for my papa and his brothers. They always drag us to their old house which is not ours anymore... and drag us all over town. All the town people still remember them.. and its wonderful to see papa and his brothers grinning here and there like small kids.

The old cendol man even remembers grandpa... (i think he's gone now). Grandma uprooted the family after grandpa passed away and they moved to Ipoh. We were all born in Ipoh... and our roots all continue from here.

But i love Lenggong. Its laid back... people are nice... and the fish is nice (more on the fish next time) and the water is like ice. Try taking a bath here. You'll be shivering in your skin. The waterfalls are just too wonderful and like ice too.

Every year since we were little, we make this trip back to Lenggong for All Soul's Day. I am looking forward to tomorrow's trip even though my siblings will not be with me. At least it will still be photography trip for me. More on Lenggong tomorrow.

I better get a rest or i'll be too woozy to drive and hold the camera tomorrow. Then it will be more blurry pictures... which photoshop sometimes cannot fix.. hehehehhee

My papa might just wake up suddenly now and nag me for keeping a late night cos tomorrow i need to drive... eeeeeeeeiiiiii... scared.

I am too old to be afraid of being nagged... hahhahaa..

Goodnite folks. I'll end this post with the road leading to Grandpa. :) More pictures tomorrow.

Opps! papa just woke up.. i better go hide for a while under my table... *shush*

Lucky you still have a grandpa. Both my dad and mom's side have left... (bless their souls). I didn't even get to meet my mom's dad cos he died when I was still a kid.

It's sad cos I didn't have any memories of him whatsoever :(

I love the road leading to your grandpa's house... the hills add character to the place as well as the gravel road! Macam professionally taken photo je... ada awan, bukit, pokok, jalan tak berturap :D

I blum pernah gi Perak lagi. One day nak try jalan2. Hopefuli tak
sesat la... hehe

My grandpa is long gone too... we go every year to Lenggong for All Soul's Day.
The picture is the road leading to his "new home"
I never knew this grandpa too.. he passed away after my mom and dad got married. But his stories live in the people who knew him because he was a very kind man. A lot of people in Lenggong still knows his children as anak Ah Tok. Papa also told us many stories about him, so we kinda knew him that way :)
Hey.. if you are coming to Ipoh for a visit... anytime welcome.. i will be your guide :)

Anny said...

Nessa said...
