We took a 5 - hour trip by bus to from the city of Harbin to the snow village. When we arrived, I was awestruck by the beauty of the snow in this district. At the same time, I was also shivering at the village because the temperature there was around -30 degrees Celsius'The snow that gathered on the dead trees make them look like snow toadstools. A lot of snow seemed to fall in this village and I once appeared to have my left foot buried deep in snow when I was caught unaware while walking around the village. The thick snow present in trees and piles of snow hovering on each and every roof is brought in by the 8 months of winter experienced by the inhabitants of the snow village every year. This is me trying to make a snow angel on snow but it failed as there was not enough snow. Many winter games can be experienced here from
riding on huskies tobogganing and skiing while sitting but the snow
village sure demands for a price. Every activity cost about 100yuan.

01-05-2010 was Labour Day, Aunt Ebbie organised a half day trip toFRIM(Forest Reserve Institute Of Malaysia) which is located at Kepong, Kuala Lumpur. This was the first time we walked through a Malaysian rainforest to help increase our understanding of the forest. This was a back-to-nature experience, we were
enjoying the floral, fauna, landscapes.......We also crossed a waterfall and had a picnic over there. The highlight of this trip is the canopy walk above the tree tops. The canopy walkway was 200m long, it was constructed in 1992 with assistance of the Germans for scientific studies of above ground for seeing both flora and fauna. By the time we reached the beginning of the walkway. We were terrified as we moved warily along the walkway because the canopy was built 30m above ground level. Various species of palm trees were below the canopy.
I found this beetle, but its horn is still very short, My Dad told me the horn will grow longer as the beetle grows. We also found a St. Andre…
