Lion Dance At Aeon Falim, Ipoh.

Last few days I have been busy cleaning up my house and my garden. Age is catching up and I need to downsize my garden to make it easier for me to maintain the garden. I have given away some of my plants to a friend who is happy to adopt them into her garden.
After my early morning walk and breakfast, I continued with my work in the garden. The work stops when the sun gets too hot. There is still plenty to clear and to give away.

After lunch we were at Aeon Falim.
There was a lion dance performance on the ground floor.
 I took this picture from the 1st floor through the partition.
 By the time we went down to the ground floor, the next lion was performing.
 While it was on the floor, I couldn't take a good picture.
 I could only take these pictures when it was up on the table.
 Many were video taping the performance.
 The red and black colours stood out very well.

 One last picture before we move over to the supermarket.

That evening we had a dinner date with friends and we ordered the following dishes for 4 people.
Steamed chicken with blended ginger paste.
Assam curry fish with assorted vegetables.
Stir fried green vegetables.
It is wonderful to have company for dinner.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Happy is the man who doesn't give in and do wrong when he is tempted,

for afterwards he will get as his reward the crown of life

that God has promised those who love him.

  3. As sad as it must be to downsize your garden, you are smart to do it anyway to preserve your health.

    Someday i would like to see a lion dance in person.

    1. I might as well start when I am still able to handle the moving of pots, etc. Have a plan ahead.

  7. I can't do all the things I used to do as well either. The time comes when you slow it down to what you can do. I get that.

    I love the dragon. That's beautiful.

    You know how I always enjoy your food. Yummy.

    Have a fabulous weekend, my friend. ♥

  15. Guess too many plants are hard to maintain, and you'd be rather tied to the garden.

    1. You are right, Stacy! Don't want to be tied too much to the garden. Want a more relax way to enjoy gardening, not with too much work.
