Port Dickson

Brought Tristan to Port Dickson during the Hari Raya Aidilfitri holiday, I was hoping that he would have a great time playing with the sand there.

The beach was dirty and I didn't really want him to get down there, but it was too late, he just rush himself down and start walking towards the water :(

Next thing I know, he already started digging the sand using his hand ... So I had to provide him with the tools we brought along.

He really enjoyed himself playing with the sand, but the sun is getting too strong that we had to bring him away, which ended up with a cry ...

At one stage he used to pull the sunglass away, luckily he's accepting it now, at least his eyes are protected against the sun.

He loves playing in the water, normally it's not easy to get him out of the pool.

Took a few photos before we left the Legend's chalet.

Tristan is almost 16 months now, he loves to imitate adults languages and actions, I like to hear him talk continuously in his own language, sometimes sounds like Vietnamese, and other times like Hokkien.

Sedona resides in the northern region of U.S. state of Arizona. It's not far from Grand Canyon, so we went there on our way back from Grand Canyon. Sedona is famous for its amazing red sandstone formations, which is refered to as the Red Rocks of Sedona.

Some red rocks there resembles things like Snoopy (when he lies on his back on top of his dog house), another Peanut comic character Lucy, courthouse, coffeepot, devil's kitchen etc. But we didn't manage to see all of them.

We did see something like Snoopy but the front leg were missing :( See the bottom left of the picture below :

You can see a drawing of the Snoopy red rock that's published by the Sedona City's Website here.

We stayed over for a night, and went ahead to the the Red Rock State Park the next morning.

We didn't follow the guided nature walk, instead we just did a free and easy nature walk.

It was all quiet, we were the only 2 human being in the wild.

Some people go to Sedona for spiritual pursuits and others are there for hiking and mountain biking. For me, I think it will be more fun to go hiking there with a group of friends.

David, a copy that stands in front of Palazzo Vecchio.

He's my favourite statue, I think you can tell from these pictures I took.

The original is in The Accademia Gallery. I insisted to go there, just to take a look at David.

It was sculpted from 1501 to 1504, by Michelangelo.

Hope you like David too, have a great weekend :-)

Jerry's Tags

Owed Jerry 2 tags :

1) If I have a million dollar (should be RM kua since I live in Malaysia)
2) 38 Q&A

The million dollar tag was received quite some time ago, but before being tagged I have never seriously think about this and after I draft out what I wanted, it sounds so boring that I thought I'll probably get it done "some day" when I have a way to make it interesting, but that has been left untouched until today, when I received a second tag from Jerry, so I thought I would just do both tags in 1 post now - Jerry, here's the 2 in 1 :)

For the first tag, these are my wishes (3C) :

1. Continue to work but only 4 hours or less a day, 4 days or less a week.

2. Create a fund for children who needs help, eg. those who's in hunger, who has lost their parent, abused, who needs education and shelter etc.

3. Create a "travel fund" for myself where I would be able to travel at least once every quarter.

It's that simple.

And the second tag :
