Of Awe-Inspiring Falls and Hershey Chocolates...




A child getting some powerful inspiration...





I saw an amazing thing today! Probably the most amazing thing since I came to Canada...


I'm sure many of you would have guessed by now what I saw...My aunt and uncle took me to see the Niagara Falls!





W...O...W...




We left early in the morning to beat the crowd, and I was hoping we would have good weather. We did! It was very, very hot, and I think I got a tan, something I've been avoiding in Malaysia (Ended up coming to Canada to get a tan?!?), but it was a bright and sunny day, and the falls were really pretty.


The parks were gorgeous. It was summer, after all, and the flowers were in bloom. There were also bees buzzing around, and birds enjoying the grass. Hey, people even brought their dogs for a picnic!




A man and his dogs in the distance, sharing water...Pretty doggies, huh?



We also had a walk down the streets to have a look at the shops nearby. We visited the Hershey's Chocolate Shop (They even had a 5-Pounds-Chocolate!!! That's even heavier than me when I was born!!!), the Coca-Cola Merchandise Shop and a number of souvenir's shops...We also browsed the outside of the Guinness World Records, the Ripley's Believe It Or Not ?shops? and the Casinos...It was really like Las Vegas town, actually...






My cousin, Ee Lynn, perhaps the world's greatest Coca-Cola fan...;)




Check this Out:-

Looks like a real person, huh? It's a dummy!





Dummy Climbing...



And more pictures from the falls:-





Maid of The Mist 'cruise' at the bottom of the Niagara Falls, which we skipped because my elderly grandma was with us...



It's ok...There will be plenty of time to take that ride in future...=)





Apple Tree overlooking the falls...






And the Hershey Man himself!!!





Yay! I practically chased the Hershey Man down...Hehe!

Everybody who knows me well knows I have a very child-like part inside me who will get more excited about getting a new giant teddy plush toy and meeting Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, than say, meeting Ricky Martin and getting a new prom dress...;)


Oh well, if it makes me happy, right?

Enjoying yourself in Canada a lot! How are you dear friend? You look happy and that makes me feel happy. Take care.

Puteri said...

Daphne!! Hehe, you are a lot closer to me now that you are in Canada!!

Enjoyed all your posts since you arrived in Canada! I have yet to see the Niagara Falls .. one of the places I must see before I die, eh!

I guess you won't miss Malaysian food since you can get even nasi lemak there in Toronto! I can't get it here in Sacramento. :-(

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your time in Canada! Perhaps you might be able to visit us here in California one of these days. I might even send you an air ticket! :-)

I remember going over to the Canadian side of the fall twice and they were just breath taking. I should plan to go back there soon. Look like you are enjoying yourself there. Take care yea!

Daphne Ling said...

Hey Kak Puteri,

Oh yes, we have Nasi Lemak here! Can't find Nasi Goreng Paprik though =(

You gotta make that trip down to the falls one of these days...But try and come over to the Canadian side as the falls are much bigger!

...Looks like I better get that US visa soon!!! ;)

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Sue Shyan!

You take care now, and if you read this, drop me an email, will you, so we can keep in touch...

Daphne Ling said...

Hey Uncle Jimmy!

Come then! Save money and come, cos it's worth it! ;)

Daphne Ling said...

Hey Aemi,

Aiyo...Sure lar, underneath the rabbit's fur all got bones...Underneath our skin also got bones what! And yes, your bunnies are faaatttt!!!

As for Hershey man, very cool! Suddenly have a craving for the chocolate lar...=(

Daphne Ling said...

Hi ICook4Fun (Aunty Gertrude),

You came to this side to see it, huh? Yes! Bigger version than the US view, from what I saw...

You take care too...

See ya around!

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Jacqui,

Yeap, I'm just being me...Best thing to be, right? Hehe...


Hi NightWing,

Ar...Another chocolate fan, ar? You gotta see the falls for yourself...The movies overdo it and make it so scary...Nothing like that at all!

It's so...calming...
