Scenic Views Of The Taiping Lake Gardens(Taman Tasik Taiping)

One of the beautiful trees at the lake garden with branches grow towards the water.

On the 18th July, I visited the Taiping Lake Garden ( Taman Tasik Taiping ) in Perak on the way back to KL from Butterworth, Penang.

The place is very, very, very beautiful.

The Taiping Lake Gardens is the first public garden established during British rule in Malaysia.

They started to plant the garden with grasses, flowers and trees in 1884.

Now there are many beautiful big, old trees along the road in the garden.

When we drove pass, I fell like going into a tree tunnel 😉

All of the trees are more than 100 years old.

Lots of the branches of the huge trees bend towards the lake and their leaves touch the water 🙂

A nice place in the garden.

I wish that I can go there again and stay at the hotel around the park so that I can spend more time watching and make drawings of the trees 🙂

I also wish to visit the ‘Night Safari’ at the Taiping Zoo near the lake garden and visit the Bukit Larut(Maxwell Hill)

Shaun The Sheep

I watch ‘Shaun the Sheep‘ on TV3.

(Please click here to visit Shaun the Sheep’s official website)

The story is about a sheep named Shaun who loves to play with his friends and they always get into trouble.

But the characters can’t talk, they only speak using their animal languages.

The main antagonist of the series are the pig and Pidsley the cat is Shaun’s nemesis.

The middle part of the story will be very funny when they try to solve their problems so they won’t get into trouble.

Shaun, Bitzer and the flock.

The animation is beautiful, but not as beautiful as ‘3rd & Bird’ 🙂

The story’s animation is similar to ‘Wallace & Gromit’.

The genre of the story is an animated children’s comedy.

In Malaysia ‘Shaun the Sheep’ is aired on TV3 at 8:30 a.m.

The main characters are:

Shaun is the leader of the flock. He's clever, cool and always keeps his head, when the other sheep are losing theirs!
Shirley is an eating machine! She's so big that she often gets stuck and needs the other sheep to push, pull or even sling-shot her out of trouble!
The farmer's faithful dog and a good friend to Shaun, Bitzer's the ever suffering sheep dog, doing his best to keep Shaun's pals out of trouble!
Running the farm with Bitzer at his side, the Farmer is complelety oblivious to the human-like intelligence of his flock... or their stupidity!
He may be the baby of the flock, but Timmy is often at the centre of things! It's a good job his mum is always there to keep him safe.
One big happy (if slightly dopey) family, the sheep like to play and create mischief together, though it's usually Shaun and Bitzer who sort out the resulting mess!
Shaun's nemesis, Pidsley, desires to be the sole recipient of the Farmer's attention. He is jealous of Bitzer's relationship with the farmer and dislikes the sheep, thinking them stupid and beneath him.
