Visit To The Paddock In Fraser's Hill.

We have visited the Paddock once many year ago. For this trip, we visited the Paddock again since it was a first time for the youngest in our group. It was a week day and the place was very quiet. We saw 2 cars parked on the road side outside the gate and the visitors' parking lot a short distance away was empty.
A short distance to walk after going through the gate.
One for our albums and one for my blog.
From afar, we saw 3 horses.
Warming up for one of the horses.
A horse ride experience for this young child.
For me and my photo taking friends, this Secret Garden got us curious. Secret or not, we had to take a look.
And look what we found in the Secret Garden! Giant red bracts/flowers. 
These two were still upright with yellow flowers.
We also found some interesting plants in the garden.
Orchid flowers.

And we also found a green seed pot hanging from the Trumpet plant.

We intentionally had a group photo with this standing order for our sweet memories.

Another one at the Clock Tower, also in the same standing order. Why? To compare! Before our Fraser's Hill trip, our friend dug out an old photo and share it with us through whatsapp!
1998/1998 - Church Family Camp in Cameron Highlands.
Here is a photo of the same 3 couples taken in 1998/1999 in Cameron Highlands. The difference is about 18 years. Can you see any differences after 18 years?

Once you were less than nothing; now you are God's own.

Once you knew very little of God's kindness;

now your very lives have been changed by it.

(1 Peter 2:10, The Living Bible-TLB)

  7. The one main difference is that your hair is now white. I like white hair and I hope my hair will be fully white as yours one day.

    1. Thank you, Mun. Initially, there was so much discouragement but now, everyone is telling me to let my white hair be natural. Now I save time and money, no need to spend time at the hair saloon and pay for the hair colouring!
