a wonder of the world
Saturday... 23rd august..after 21 years of waiting, we finally went to a place where we could take family portraits. i have been bugging my family to go ever since i was a kid as they had taken a family portrait before i was born. dont you think it is unfair that the others had a family picture while i did not?well, i thought so too!!! my father (an unnatural at smiling was forced to pose and smile...but it was extremely funny, dad never likes to pose), my brother(the one who walks like a robot had to pose too)haha...it was a fun thing, hope that the pictures turn out nicely.
We went back for lunch, and then we were well on our way to Niagara Falls...the must see attraction in Canada!! My sister was so busy with her orang putih boyfriend that she did not follow us on that day but subsequently she did on another day go to the falls. it was quite a long journey because many people were heading in the same direction, but when we reached there, it was worth it! it was spectacular....nothing in Malaysia can compare with that...it was truly an art that God created for us mere mortals to bask in His splendour.
The sun was shining so bright that my skin got burnt in a few seconds, the rush of the cool mist from the falls as we walked high above it gave a refreshing light touch on our sunburnt skin. we went on a journey behind the falls which my father complained was a rip off..haha...i wouldnt blame him, the ride on the boat would have been better. Anyway, after breathing in the beauty and one of the wonders of the world, i wanted to go to the IMAX theather where it featured the legend of the falls and also daredevils who jumped the high waters.
I had to practically lug everyone around, because everyone was tired. By 8 at night, we were on our way home, a day worth spent out.
