The sky looks like the sea today

Bahay Kubo
Bahay Kubo or nipa hut is an icon of Filipino culture. "Bahay" means house in Filipino and "kubo" means cube. In Malaysia, these huts are popular around beaches and resorts.

MALAYSIAN STREET FOOD

Claypot rice

Think Malaysian paella! Essentially, it is just rice cooked in a claypot with ingredients like Chinese sausage, chicken/pork and/or salted fish, resulting in a crispy crust at the bottom.

KOREA 2002

Alps Ski Resort

Note the time on the clock.
One of South Korea's first ever winter sports destinations, the Alps Ski Resort drew tens of thousands of skiers every year until it abruptly closed its doors in 2006. The resort still remains a ghost town today despite attempts to reopen it. Increased competition from more accessible rivals with newer facilities drove the resort's owner into bankruptcy.

  12. Great photos. Acacia is a beautiful flower with many meanings also esoteric.
    The skywatch is amazing.
    I would like to taste the Malaysian paella: looks delicious.

  13. The nipa hut really does have a fun beach vibe. It would provide the perfect shaded place to hang out, and enjoy a fun and relaxing day at the beach!

  14. I always enjoy seeing the food where you live. It looks delicious.I would like to browse and see all the street food. That is a charming hut, but the roof doesn't look too sturdy to me. The yellow flowering bush is lovely, as well as the Pagoda flower. That one looks like Autumn. So pretty.

    Have a wonderful week.

  17. Just abandoned? Someone should make a horror movie there. That would make a great setting.

  18. Dearest Veronica,
    Always so nice to be fed with images from flowers, foods and things that both of us have known for several years... Terima kasih banyak!
    As for the abandoned ski resort in South Korea, what a pity and also quite a loss on investment.
    When you took the photo, the clock was standing still and now it even looks rusted...
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  19. That clay pot rice looked delicious!! Oh how sad about the ski resort! It must have been beautiful during its "heyday" so to speak. I don't like when things like this close and then stay empty forever. I like buildings to be re-purposed if at all possible. If those buildings and ski lift chairs could talk! What stories they would tell!

    betty

  22. I always enjoy your photos and seeing life from another part of our world! The flowers are beautiful; the food looks amazing, and what a sad loss of such a once-fabulous resort! Wishing you a great week ahead!

  23. I had claypot rice in Vietnam and it was delicious. I am quite sure that the Malayan version is equally appealing. The abandoned ski resort will slowly return to nature unless some entrepreneur figures it can be revived.

  24. The lovely sky really is a sea of sorts. Sometimes, with all the Covid restrictions, it literally feels as if time is standing still and we’re stuck in this moment together.

  25. A lovely potpourri.

  26. An amazing series of photos Veronica. I'm sorry, I thought I had already added a comment here but when I am on my iPad (on my laptop now) my comments sometimes don't make it through.

    ReplyDelete
  27. WoW! I LOVE your gallimaufry! I think the most interesting is the ski resort. We have some old ghost towns in our area and it is interesting to see there are "new" ghost towns in other areas of the world. Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  28. dear all your photos are amazing! So good quality:) You put all your heart in those;) follow:) hope U follow back:)

  29. That's too bad that the ski resort was left abandoned. What a great variety of photos!

    ReplyDelete
  30. the view from your balcony is always GORGEOUS!! a really nice gallimaufry of images, i think i would like the rice cooked in the clay pot!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha , is it always 20minutes past 10 in your world? very funny. I love that you are scanning in your older travel photos, I keep thinking I will do that. With your newer collection, I never know if I best love the skies, the flowers, or the food. I think I'll go with the food today, because I'm hungry and I wish I had some of yours so I wouldn't have to get up from my chair and go cook :>)

  32. Sad to see the abandoned resort. The sky is amazing and looks like waves rolling in.

    ReplyDelete

    Have a nice week :-)

  35. Beautiful photos, Veronica. The Claypot Rice looks like a delicious dish. It's really sad about the resort being deserted and abandoned for so long. What a waste! The time on your photo and the others is indeed uncanny. Hope you have a good week.

  36. Delectable Malay food and such stunning travel pictures, dear Vero.

    Hugs. Stay fabulous my friend.

  37. What a shame the ski resort had to close. Looks like a good opportunity for a budding entrepreneur to have another go with that lovely building.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The food looks yum 😁! And I like the "bahay kubo" also 😃!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great photo mix. It brings mom back to the times she spent in that part of the world. She never went to that creepy ski resort in Korea, though. She did usually go shopping and went to North Korea in the DMZ zone once.

  40. That Pagoda flower is gorgeous! Lovely collage to say how you live your life without saying a word. Love it.

  46. The pagoda flower is amazingly beautiful, Veronica. That now abandoned ski resort was interesting to see and I wondered what will become of the buildings. Did you also go skiing there with your family? The clay pots looked good.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Veronica - love the flowers. And what a tragic story about the bankrupt ski resort!
