Lunch With Friends At Wan Li Xiang Roasters, Ipoh.

I was at a friend's house and just before I wanted to leave, my friend suggested going for lunch because she wanted to introduce a new place to me. As I am always game to try a new place, I agreed and together with her hubby, we drove to this new place with her directing the way. My friend did the ordering because they are regular customers. 
 Roast pork and char siew (sweet bbq pork)
The skin of the roast pork was very crunchy.
Crispy deep fried abalone mushrooms and baby French beans with salted egg yolk. I love this dish!
Black vinegar pig's trotter in clay pot - very appetizing dish.
 Stir fried sweet potato leaves in prawn sauce.
Overall, it was a delicious lunch but we couldn't finish the food and ended up taking home most of the food. Total cost of lunch including rice and drink for 3 people = MYR 66.40

Address: Wan Li Xiang Roaster,
No. 2, 4-6, Susuran Pasir Puteh, Taman Sentosa, Ipoh.
I have yet to try their roast duck.
We enjoyed the lunch very much and we have booked a table for 10 people for the new year eve's dinner. In a few hours time, we will be bidding 2017 goodbye and will be welcoming the new year 2018! See you next year!

IN 2018!

Bonsai Suiseki Competition At Aeon Falim, Ipoh.

A friend informed me that there was a Bonsai Suiseki competition and exhibition at Aeon Falim. The exhibition was held on the 23rd Dec. Two evenings later, we dropped by to see the exhibition. We have never seen so many Bonsai plants, wood and rocks on display and we were glad we went. Thanks to our friend for informing me. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Suiseki also known as viewing stones is the Japanese art of stone appreciation. Formed through time by wind and water, stones can take several sizes and shapes, reminding us of natural objects.
These are wood
If I am not mistaken, this is one of the overall winner.
Left - Mulberry bonsai
Right - Ixora bonsai
A Calamansi Lime bonsai
A Bougainvillea bonsai.
These are rocks. The one on the right is shaped like a fisherman.

Choosing Between Lace Closure And Lace Frontal

When someone makes mention about pack hair, it means that the hair is processed hair with the hair cuticles stripped off during processing. They are cheap and of poor quality and are usually bought from beauty supply store and the hair could only be used once. The hair is not virgin hair and it can easily gets tangled. The hair shed easily, cannot be dyed nor shampooed. The hair is collected primarily from poor countries. These hair are sometimes mixed with nylon threads and animal hair. 

Hair bundles are hair extensions that are of purely virgin quality. The hair cuticles remain intact and with all the hair strands flowing in one direction. The virgin hair does not gets tangled easily and they last longer. They do not shed, can be coloured and washed frequently. The hair bundles are directly ordered from the hair supplier and are not bought from any beauty store which sells the hair in packs. The hair bundles are divided into grades, the bigger the number the better the grade and more expensive.

The most common hair extension choices are the lace closure and the lace frontal. These two give a natural hairline look. A lace closure is much smaller than a frontal. The lace closure is sewn into place while the lace frontal is generally meant to be bonded in place. Both the lace closure and lace frontal can be placed either in front or behind the natural hairline, but the lace frontal since it is bonded, is usually placed in front of the hairline.

Both the lace closure and lace frontal are made with lace or silk. The lace based closure and frontal have a much natural or accurate resembling of the wearer's scalp. The lace closure covers a small portion of the front of the install and it is not possible to have pulled back hairstyles without exposing the tracks. The lace frontal covers the entire hairline and allows more styling options than a lace closure.
A lace frontal will be more suitable to those who likes pulled back hairstyles. A lace closure will do just fine if you just want to get a natural looking scalp. Lace frontals are available in different styles, hair types, and colours. It is a thin, transparent piece of lace mesh around the hairline, attached to a wig made from human hair or synthetic hair.

A lace frontal is usually used to cover the loss of hair along the hairline. It has a coverage area from ear to ear and is designed to mimic the wearer's natural hairline.

Turquoise Blue Jade Vine From Cameron Highlands.

Here are some photos from our previous Cameron Highlands about 2 months ago. I have to finish posting these and other photos before our next visit next year.
The apartment we stayed in - Nova Highland Resort & Residence.
Blue sky and white cloud.
Floating cottony white cloud.
We bought these white corn to try. These are more expensive than the yellow corn. These were very juicy without any fibre.
We paid a visit to this garden before we started our journey home.
As we walked through the entrance, we saw these turquoise blue vine flowers hanging from above us. 
I have never seen these flowers before.
This is a close up of a flower.
We also saw a few fruits hanging above us.
These are for sweet memories.
More for sweet memories.
White wooden fence and some seats for those who need a rest.
Below are some more photos for joining Good Fences.
