Watery Wednesday: Penang




http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

From the snowy Southland of New Zealand, and the hail storms of Auckland, I dedicate this post to http://rainfield61.blogspot.com/ of sunny Penang. "The Pearl of the East aka "The Pearl of the Orient", "东方花园". I love visiting the Botanical Gardens and didn't mind the humidity and the heat.

I love botanical gardens, and that is an impressive little waterfall! Do you have pictures of the flowers?

Gorgeous pictures from Penang, Ann.... That is perfect for Watery Wednesday ---and for you, a nice change from the cold and snow in New Zealand...

Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures.

The waterfall looks so refreshing for our summer heat here (although officially it is already Autumn).

I'm a fan of botanical gardens too - altho' unlike you I easily gets bothered by the combo of heat and humidity.

That's a good place and you look so young.

I might have seen you at the same time you visited the botanical garden, only that we were strangers to each other.

I love going to the botanical gardens too...next time you go...I'll be there with you?

My Watery photos are about the 'disaster area' in town during a day long rainstorm. Click Here if you'd care to join me today with your visit.

haha! i didn't know Cerok Tokun is in Penang. been there last year, haven't posted about the trip yet in my blog but i posted photos in my FB. you can add me @ chersc29@gmail.com if you have an account. otherwise i will post about the trip one of these days. it's a nice place, we went to the Butterfly Farm and Kek Lok Si Temple. didn't get a chance to explore the botanical gardens and Penang Hill though due to lack of time...

btw, my daughter just turned 8 yrs old. the big cat is not that close to us, i used my 300mm lens. :)

the spider was taken @ the zoo as well. haven't explored Pulau Ubin yet, hubby is not very keen on island hoping.

thanks Ann for being my frequent visitor, appreciate it so much. :)

I wouldn't mind heat and humidity with a nice watery scene like this either.
