Moonlighting, Lollies and Stalactites


I can't believe it!! It's so sunny today and the temperature is currently 11 celcius !! What happens to winter ? Not that I'm complaining... it's just that it's so unpredictable !! We have been looking forward to more snow so that we could play snow sledding (we just found the perfect place for it recently after the snow has already melted). We are also hoping that the canals will be frozen so that dear son could try his luck in ice skating :D

*sigh* I suppose I will just have to show these winter photos before the crocus and tulips decide to show their buds in January he..he.. These were all taken between 18 - 20 December.



I love the sight of these lights topped with the fresh snow. Quickly grabbed my camera and went out in the cold to snap them before the snow started to melt.


Double moonlighting..



Ice cream lollies...

Stalactites..



My bird house..

My rubbish bins...

Cheqna,

Kononnya nak cuba ambik gmbar yg artristic la.. hmm.. tu je hasilnya, memang bukan photographer :D

Dulu masa winter pakai tights & skirt pendek pergi kerja ok, tapi la ni.. dlm rumah pun stoking 24 jam he..he..

Kalau iceskating tu jgn harap nak boleh cuba lagi.. lutut yg sebelah ni dah x kuat!!! bahayaaa...
