The Lakehouse: Fairytale Tudor Style Hotel In Cameron Highlands

by Riz Baldivia @ Lamyerda

Magical! That’s what I described our Christmas stay in The LakeHouse, a Fairy tale Tudor style hotel in Ringlet Cameron Highlands. I’ve been to Cameron Highlands a few times and I have never been to The Lake House. I thought it would be a good idea to book one of their elegant rooms with my family and friends. Christmas is the busiest day of the year and we were lucky to book the last room! We stayed in a beautiful Family Suite with clean bathroom and luxurious amenities. The bed with its white curtain drapes is not only elegant but is also comfortable. I have a thing for colonial style hotel and it did not disappoint me. The Family Suite is huge which consists of two separate rooms and is decorated in an old classic furniture’s. The only drawback is that the bathroom is attached to the masters room and it’s a bit of a hassle to go through which is quite disturbing to the person sleeping in the masters. There is TV for entertainment and although the WIFI  is strong, it gets intermittent sometimes. The room is blessed with a great garden view, moreover, I am so charmed with […]

Zaanse Schans: Windmills, Chocolates and Dutch Costume in a lovely little town in Holland

by Riz Baldivia @ Lamyerda

Zaanse Schans is the Holland I was looking for! Windmills, cheese, chocolates, wooden houses, Dutch costume, and a historically bucolic countryside! After the rainy days in France and the chill winds of Belgium, we were delighted that Holland gave us a warm sunny weather! And I was all fired up to know that Zaanse Schans is just less than an hour away from Amsterdam. Donna and I took the bus to this picturesque windmill village. And guess what the first thing we did..wear the Dutch costume! We hilariously looked so classic wearing the traditional Dutch dress and the clogs made me feel how it was like to live in a village dating back to 1850s. Beautiful windmills, farmlands, wonderful lake, and cute little cafes. Zaanse Schans is freaking photogenic! It is also impressive that the windmills are still functional! It’s like reviving the past back to life. It is touristy, yet, this quaint lovely town is so charming and romantic.   After having a go wearing, dancing, laughing and taking loads of photos with the Dutch-maid costume, we decided to take a seat at one of the little cafes and had our morning coffee while breathing-in and enjoying the lovely view of the […]

Follow our Saigon nightlife guide to see what are the best things to do if you’re going to spend a night here. 1.

NAMASTE! Heaven Isn’t Too Far Away

by Riz Baldivia @ Lamyerda

I’ve been thinking about good motivational quotes and paragraphs to start this blog but after abusing my backspace and delete buttons, I gave up. It’s been a while since I put my travel stories on paper and I think I’ve lost the touch of the flowery words to start my tales. In that case, let me start this one with a message of gratitude for my good friend Riz of Lamyerda.com for giving me an opportunity to be a guest blogger on her awesome site. So here it is. Most of us do have some silly Bucket List and I am no exception. Two of mine are “Travelling to the Himalayas” and “Experience Snow”. Who could have known that I can tick both just with one trip? And that is all my story about. The Target Location: Annapurna Basecamp is a common topic along the trails of Malaysia. At 4130 meters, Annapurna Basecamp is just 35 meters higher than Mt. Kinabalu. But don’t be fooled as we are only talking about the base camp. Annapurna Mountain is the 10th highest mountain in the world with only 69% of successful summits, the remaining 31%…fatalities. So not be a morbid one, reaching […]

Ghent: Quaint, Charming and the most beautiful city of Belgium!

by Riz Baldivia @ Lamyerda

Arguably, Ghent is the most lovely, historically rich and romantic city in Belgium aside from Bruges. I thought about skipping Belgium as part of my Europe Trip, but glad that I didn’t! I never thought that Ghent is abso-fuckin-lutely gorgeous! The beautiful canals, picturesque Graslei and Korenlei, cute cafes, cobblestone streets, majestic cathedrals, Museums, wonderful bridges, impressive architectures, magical castles and hot men everywhere – Ghent stole my heart! The old city center is so exquisite with attractions that are clustered together which is perfect for a great stroll. Donna and I wander around the medieval streets of the city and relaxed in one of those restaurants overlooking the city with a nice drink watching at the people as they go past. Time seems so fast in Ghent because there are so many things to see! I regret that I only spent a day there! Ghent deserves more than a day to fully explore its stunning city, but it only takes a second to fall under its spell! I felt like I was in a Gothic fantasy book never wanting to reach the end of the page.   St. Bavo’s cathedral was closed during the time of our visit, and […]
