December is the month of happy matrimony!

Our neighbors are celebrating their marriage during this wonderful season in December. We hosted a bunch of jolly good people who had booked our Homestay for their guests to stay overnight and have more joyous moments with their extended family members!

We just hosted a group of Cyclists all the way from Penang Island

Tonight, we hosted a group of cyclists who crossed the border on their bike all the way from Penang Island, accompanied only by their friends on four wheels who acts as their refuge in case anyone of them suffers from cramps or injuries along the way of no less than 97km to Raintown Homestay in Taman Lake View.

I believe they have another plan to come to Taiping next month on January as they had already booked another weekend. May be one day I should join them too?
