My Songs of June 2018

Image
Wow, it feels like forever since I last posted my songs of the month. I guess I'm not used to the gap of a month and half. Remember, I posted My Songs of May 2018 earlier than usual due to Ramadan? Anyway, I'm so excited to share with you my songs of June 2018. Mainly because I really, really, really like them. I had difficulty choosing songs that best represent my June 2018 because I got attached to more than 5 songs in this June which was unusual. Anyway, these songs will definitely remind me of my June 2018. But before that, let me summarize my June. My June was a mix of excitement, confusion, and sadness? As you all probably know and aware, I was extremely excited to go home and by the time you reading this, insya Allah, I have safely arrived in Malaysia :) As for the confusion, again, I was contemplating about my job. Same old same old but this time I have finally made a final decision. As for the sadness, hmmm, something ridiculous happened to me at my workplace a

Mount Norquay

Mount Norquay June 20, 2018 11:45 AM Went to Mount Norquay for the first time yesterday. It was such a neat experience because it was my first time seeing the Town of Banff and the surrounding areas and mountains from this point of view. It was also a hilarious experience as I had a staring contest with this bighorn sheep. I had a good chuckle when it happened. Too bad that I didn't get to fully utilize this experience as I did not know the best time to visit Mount Norquay and I had a stomachache when I was up there that I had to cut short my stay to 20 minutes. Maybe I'll pay Mount Norquay another visit, again?

Locals' Appreciation Day at Lake Minnewanka Cruise

Image
Pursuit Collection had a Locals' Appreciation Day on May 27, 2018. On this day, locals had a chance to enjoy free admission with donation instead of paying discounted or full rate to selected attractions. Most of my colleagues and friends went to Banff Gondola but I decided to go for Lake Minnewanka Cruise as I have never been to Lake Minnewanka before. Honestly, I wanted to go to both Banff Gondola and Lake Minnewanka Cruise but there's only so much time in a day that I had to sacrifice one of them. Took the 9am-ish bus from the nearest stop to my staff accommodation so that I can catch the first cruise. It took me almost half an hour by bus to reach Lake Minnewanka. It was great to see the vast Lake Minnewanka especially after getting stuck with my routine in Banff Avenue. lol! Anyways, I saw few bighorn sheep while we were on the way to the Lake Minnewanka. So, that was a nice surprise :) There was quite a long line when I arrived at the dock that morning. I

Road Trip to Bruce Peninsula National Park

This post was first published on May 22, 2016  on one of my older blogs. Decided to repost it here in Her Little Guilty Pleasures due to reasons that I mentioned in this post . ********************* Have been wanting to update about this road trip to Bruce Peninsula National Park since last week but I was too occupied with my guests. Well, I haven't seen them since we came to Canada so there were a lot of things to catch up. Plus, we had sendiri-sendiri Korean dramas marathon. Oh my god, we were like the definition of unemployed bums for the past few days. lol! Anyway, I figured I should update about this road trip now than later before I become lazy or too occupied with my other personal affairs. On May 13 (it was Friday the 13th by the way, hehe!), we rent a car to send out soon-to-be-shipped-to-Malaysia stuff to our senior house. After we were done with sending our stuff, my housemate drove us to Bruce Peninsula National Park. Bak kata orang, alang-alang dah ada

Evening at Edith Cavell

This post was first published on September 28, 2015 on one of my older blogs. Decided to repost it here at Her Little Guilty Pleasures due to reasons that I mentioned in this post . ********************* If you've been following my blog since last year, you should know that my favourite mountain in Jasper is Mount Edith Cavell. Mount Edith Cavell was one of the reasons why I went back to Jasper last summer. I was stunned by this view All this while, I have been obsessing over Mount Edith Cavell from afar. And, alhamdulillah, I got a chance to go for a hiking trip to the base of the Mount Edith Cavell last summer. In case you are wondering, nope, I did not climb to the top of the Mount Edith Cavell. Mount Edith Cavell hike is for the professionals. I am far from professional. I only went to the base :) Angel Glacier and Cavell Pond (I assume) The road up the base was crazy because it was zigzagged. Few girls had carsick, so we had to stop few times. I

Emerald Lake

Emerald Lake May 31, 2018 10:57 AM Went for another tour (again!) two days ago. This time around I had a chance to see a glimpse of the Emerald Lake. Didn't get spend too much time here as we were in a rush to go to our final destination that day. Hopefully I'll get another chance to visit this beautiful lake. Pray for me, will you?
