Lakeview In Kampar & Homeward Bound

After Prawn Village in Tanjung Tualang, we drove to Kampar. 

It was still early and we were not ready to go home yet.
Blue sky and white clouds.
We reached Kampar Westlake at about 2pm.
We stopped to snap some photos.
I have been here a few times when my sons were studying here. This is a nice place for the students to gather and loiter here especially in the evening.
We wanted to have ice-kacang or shaved ice dessert in one of the shops in Kampar town but found the shop closed. So we decided to drive straight back to Ipoh.
Sign by the roadside.
Passed by a petrol station. Dark cloud looming over us. Later there was a heavy downpour but stopped before we reached home.
I bought the above snack from Tanjung Tualang.
I bought 2 packs. 1 plain and 1 with black sesame.
This used to be our favourite childhood biscuits, folded into a triangle.
There used to be a folded paper inside the triangles but only a few with coins.
We kids are more interested in getting the coin than eating the biscuits. Those were the days. These days, these biscuits no longer have any coin inside.

Since it was still early when we reached home, I had time to boil plain rice porridge for dinner.
I had some leftover pork cooked with belimbing buluh or Averrhoa bilimbi fruits.
I opened a packet of preserved vegetable with peanuts.
The amount is just enough for 2 people.
A simple and light dinner after a sumptuous lunch in Tg Tualang.


 Come to me and I will give you rest -
all of you who work so hard beneath a heavy yoke.
Wear my yoke - for it fits perfectly - and let me teach you;
for I am gentle and humble, and you shall find rest for your souls;
for I give you only light burdens.
(Matthew 11:28, The Living Bible-TLB)

  12. Thank you Nancy for showing us
    the Lakeview In Kampar. Very serene looking. I think better for the biscuit not to have any coins inside due to hygiene reason. The preserved vegetables and peanuts are so convenient to use, to go with congee. Where did you buy it?

    1. The coins were wrapped in paper before placing inside the biscuits. I bought the preserved vegetables and peanuts from one of the nearby grocery shops in my area.

  17. If these biscuits were accessible here, I would have done the same. That's a lovely lake, and I'd love to spend some time on its shore.

  18. Sounds like you both had a lovely, idyllic day.

  19. Guess coins in biscuits wouldn't be too hygienic, even if wrapped in paper. Oh what joy those days when we found a coin!
