Last one last one !!!!

Basically is the last day trekking down to civilisation and somehow in mind that we are going to have a comfy bed and nice shower, we tend to sorta enjoy the trek a little bit .. LOL .. I mean mentally .. Like suddenly we are just stress-free .. Or we just finally get used with all the trekking, the tiredness and everything but it's time to say goodbye already ..

Leaving the camp that we stayed for last 2 nights that was quite an emotional night ... Goodbye is always the hardest thing to say but the memories will also be there in our mind ..

Btw, crossing that not-so-fat of tree trunk with my bagpack and holding walking stick, it's kinda scary  and kept having this in mind like what-if i fall into river ..

On the other side of the river, a Switzerland-look-alike scenary is waiting for us .. Just so nice la ... Not much of ascending today mainly are on flat roads and 2 - 3 hours of descending .. Kinda hurting the knee and toes tho ..

The sky were so blue and grass were so green that we cannot don't stop for some photos .. A last photo of us on the Great Kashmir :D

Then, we walk into rows of trees ... Into forest like trek ...

Cooling trek but damn lots of rocks la .. I officially hate walking on rocks .. Make me paranoid when jumping from one to another afraid that I will just slip and fall =.="

Half way through, come across this not-sure-what-is-that and I thought I'm in Rome .. Hahahaha ..

But my guess is a house for the Gypsy staying around kut ... Hrmmm ...

Then walked for about another 2 hours before we reach to a small guest house where we actually got to order Maggie Mee .. Yeah, you read it right .. Maggie Mee !!! We were so bored of mountain-top dhall with chapati liked food, of course we all chose to pay for the Maggie Mee .. kekeke .. Until it's sold out .. Luls .. Typical Malaysian who were craving for Malaysian food, i think Maggie Mee is one of the cravings this time xD

Not sure why it's called hotel cz errr I don't see rooms .. I would rather call it as a rest stop lor ... And caught this pretty Kashmir ladies on top of the "hotel" looking at the happenings ...

Yush, they looked concern on what was happening, so do I .. One of our team mate, who has always been the top in the trek i.e. first to go, first to arrive the camp .. She actually injured herself during our rock climbing day, 2 days ago but did not tell anyone about her injury .. Somehow her injury sort of got worst on our last day that makes her back (I think) hurt so much that every step she actually shouted so badly ... :( Feel bad when she refused to be on the stretcher and be carried down the mountain as she wanted to finish the trek on her own foot ... But after much persuasion by all of us (not me), she finally give in to be carried down ... :) As much I admire her sportsmanship, I'm even more glad that after seeing doctor when we were down the flat ground, she's find .. Did not hurt the spinal cord ... :))

Btw, these porter and the guide is just so awesome lor .. While carrying her down the mountain which is on a zig-zag trek, they still can sing all the way down .. LOL .. Free radio ma ... I WANT TO BE CARRIED LA !!!! LOL ....

Yeah, that pretty much how we ended our trek .. Reached the based camp and van (taxi) came carried us away to Srinagar town to stay in boat house .... We were probably just too tired that I left my beloved trekking shoe and dad left his walking stick in the car T__________T

Shall blog about things to bring on the next post !!!!! Learnt from experience must share with all ma !! :D

For all of you who have been following my journey of the trek, hope you all love it !!!! *syoksendiri telling myself there's hundreds of readers here* :P

The Cafe by Photo Crafts


CNY has ended 2 days ago together with Valentine's Day and I should get my engine moving on my blog and photography !!!!

Recently, I've loved to exploring new cafe in town that I think I should start sharing here with whoever is going to read my blog here .. LOL .. But yeah, few days ago I was told by my mom that one of her colleague was googling on a place and my blog came out in the Google (Thanks GOOGLE! Love ya!!! Give u 90830192830921830123 of kissess) and was giving positive feedback on how they love I blog. Just so duper happy la ... I always thought I'm the only reader here .. HAHAHA ...

OK OK .. For the love of whoever is reading it ... Here's my new post !!!

Shall share about this cafe that I recently went with my so po that I almost went crazy ...

Why? You say?

After climbing some steps, my first view of the shop is this .. And the first thing that caught my eye are things on the right ... All camera related stuff !!!! laksjdkalsjdlkasjdlkasjdlkasdjas

The surroundings ..

Quite a spacious cafe and just super love the settings la ..

It was quite late when we were there so we just order coffee for a drink and chit chat and of course having me drooling over the displays they have ...

Even the thing that put the toothpicks also come in a film shaped .. Why so cute !!! Almost wanted to put that in my bag quietly without people knowing ... :X

Had latte and I find it's quite good for a price of about RM10 ah, i think .. Can't remember d .. Ooppss ..

Heh .. Sorry on the food and drinks review part .. But I'm just seriously too obsess with the stuffs below ..

This shop which is by Photo Crafts are mainly into lomography so of course the cameras they have are lomo cameras. Oh, and on the 3rd floor of the cafe (simply because they are located on the 2nd floor of shophouses) they have retail too selling all the lomo camera and other camera related stuff like diary, photo album .. They also sell Instax camera ..

Here's the look of the retail at 3rd floor .. So vintage and so many camera that if only I can buy all ... :(

I wasn't into lomo camera so that night I did learnt something about lomo camera or at least the brands they have ...

Just so vintage and so cute lor !!!! I want i want !!!!

Love the middle one ... KEEP CALM & JUST BUY .. hahaha .. *breathe in breathe out*

Some ideas that I'm definitely going to steal to put in my room as I've been wanting to wash out some of the nice photos that I've been taking and put in on my room's wall ..

Not bad hor the idea .. *steals*

So, for all the photography lovers .. I super highly recommend you all to go there to have some drinks ke .. Hehehe .. Promise will go back there to properly have their foods and drinks .. :P It's a nice place to chill out cuz it's spacious and cosy ...
