The 20 Dollars View and Because Every Family is Unique ~
Even each individual is unique. My sisters and I, we don't really have the same interest. My eldest sister, she loves aviation a lot while my 2nd sister loves language and culture. While me, you know right? 😏😄
I am grateful to be part of my family. ♥️ Although we do fight and argue, too sometimes. But that's the rainbow out of everything. If everyone is the same, life would be too boring. ☝️✌️ Yes, like seriously boring. 🙈
Anyway, we were at Moraine Lake, about 14 km away from Lake Louise (see my previous post), which is still within Banff National Park. To get to here, it can be easy if you drive and if you get the parking lot. Else, transfer by the shuttle bus from the assigned points can be a little bit complicated. We reached there around 7.30 am and the parking lots was already full. Dang!
Even so, fret not! It is still recommended to come here. We can do hiking, canoeing or kayaking. Enjoy the beautiful view of this lake which is Glacier-fed with its brilliant blue-green colour water. Luv! And orh, it is 20 Dollar View because this Moraine Lake view was on the CAD 20 old note. ♥️
It is already weekend! So, have you decided where to go this weekend or probably with whom will you spend with? 😉
Narh! Enjoy your weekend!

Because it happens..
I am still suffering from jetlag after three days. Any tips? Tried to take a nap in the afternoon but ended up I slept like a baby like in the night time. Dinner skipped but then I had my supper or super early breakfast at 3 am in the morning. Boo! 🙈
But well, I made a good use of the quiet night to think and work. It isn't that bad at all.☝️ That's how I lived for the past three days - trying to be awake and sleep at proper hours.🙊

O Mountain ~
Nah..I didn't expect it to be this misty. The weather forecast that day wasn't accurate at all. It said that it is going to be a sunny day, hence, I wore a shorts and just brought my thin jacket where as in fact it was 14°C when I reached there ~ 😅
Fortunately, we went there for a little hiking so we got warmer as we moved (+ thanks to the fats I have). But still...why weather..why..it was so misty until I couldn't even see my surrounding. 🙁
But well, probably that means I should go back there again? Probably. Hope to see colourful wild flowers blooming here next time! ♥️ And maybe with you? ☺️

...I got a photo without the crowd. 😆
That's my first expression when I saw the lake. Because of the long line to get to the shuttle bus to Moraine Lake which is still about 20 minutes away from here, I and my family decided to stop by here first. And we didn't regret to make a detour. 😄
A postcard-like landscape which is getting so popular not only to the locals. We can do kayaking and canoeing here with the view. How awesome is that? But we didn't although we wanted. Because the rental price is far out of our budgets.😅
Anyway, we are happy already to sit down here and enjoy the view. ♥️
Will you come here? ☺️

What's your favourite flower?
I love bright sunny Sunflower. It just makes my day. 🌻
So, last Sunday we went for the Sunflower Festival at Chiliwack in British Columbia. It is about 3 hours drive from Washington, USA, cross border to Canada. And the venue is only about 10-15 mins away from the border.
Besides we can spot many kind of Sunflowers (which I just knew there are several types), we can also see other type of flowers, too! This festival only happens during summer starts from June to August.🌻
Btw, don't forget to join the GIVEAWAYS! Check my previous post for more info.🙂
Jadi minggu lalu gw ama keluarga berkunjung ke Chiliwack di British Columbia. Perjalanan dari Washington ke sana melewati border US dan Canada sekitar 3 jam
Selain bisa melihat berbagai macam bunga Matahari, kita juga bisa lihat berbagai macam bunga lainnya. Festival Bunga Matahari ini hanya ada selama musim panas. 🌻
Btw, jangan lupa ikutan GIVEAWAYS! Cek di postku sebelumnya ya untuk infonya 🙂

Sky Above. Sand Below. Peace Within.
A different kind of beach. If all these while the beaches I've visited before are white sandy beaches with blue clear water, then the Rialto Beach is different. Pebbles at some area, grey sandy at the other.
Nevertheless, strolling along the beach is still therapeutic. It is no wonder why some of relaxing instrumental music does include the sound of the waves into it.
Make peace and enjoy the beach, shall we? ☺️
Kalo selama ini pantai2 yg pernah gw kunjungi itu pantai pasir putih dengan air laut biru, nah, di Pantai Rialto ini agak sedikit berbeda. Pesisir pantainya ada yg berbatu2 kecil dan pasirnya berwarna gelap.
Walaupun begitu, jalan2 di pantai selalu menyenangkan. Mendengar suara deru ombak dan burung2 laut berterbangan, pikiran rasanya jadi lebih tenang.
Make peace and enjoy the beach, shall we? ☺️

What kind of stories would it tell~
The more we get older, the more stories we have to tell. I remember when I was a kid, I often heard people say this in Chinese, "I eat more salt than you." It is to tell that older people have more experiences and have been through much than well..younger people do. So, heed advice from them and you will be alright.
While it is not always the case but one thing I am pretty sure that older people have a lot of stories to tell and I love to listen and learn from them especially inspiring ones. Like this big tree in this @olympic_nps, I wonder if it could speak, what kind of stories it would tell. Would it be inspiring ones or stories full of pain knowing how we mistreat the forest in other part of the world.
If we love nature, we should know what to do to protect the environment, don't we?
Do more. Love more.
