My first winter...

and my first snow of course...

Can you imagine how 'rusa masuk kampung' I was... hahahaaaaa... so funny! Everyone was running trying to get away from the snow... Like how we run away from rain, finding shades... Not me... I found an open space, spread my palms open, trying to catch the little snow balls...

Snow, I always imagined it would feel like grated ice, but really it is soft like cotton...

I wish my family was here... especially my beloved mommy...

Cik Ct insisted that I check how the snow flakes looks like... so I did... without paying attention at people passing by or whether they were looking at me... who cares? I was enjoying my first snow. How cool is that? So cool!

Observing the snowflakes, I found that there are a few patterns of them... they are so tiny, I only managed to identify one or two and it looked something like this....

Yesterday, it was quite warm. I think it was about 0 degree... never thought I would classify 0 degree as warm... but it is warm if compared to the other days when it was -4 degrees and the wind was blowing... and today it rained almost the whole day...

Tomorrow... maybe it'll be snowing...

I was hoping for a white winter... you know, when the white snow covered the pathway, the leaveless trees wrapped in those soft white 'cottons'... but, I didn't get my chance. But it's ok... I enjoy the cold weather anyway :)

I also enjoy wearing my old big long water resistent coat with hood. It has 3 pockets... the inside pocket to keep my important things... 2 outside pockets... one for my gloves, the other for my long scarf... It's a perfect coat for me. As kampung as I am, I wear 2 layers of coat with gloves covered hands & mafleur wrapped around my neck while the local ladies wore blouse with skirts & long stokings... plus a layer of knee length coat. That's all...

I bet I'll freeze if I dressed up like that.

This trip has been wonderful for me... as well as the last autumn. I always know that I enjoy spring and autumn the most, but winter is also not so bad. I only wish I had time to walk around to capture the beauty of winter...

Maybe some other winter, some other place...

Thinking of winter sonata... so romantic...

Forever dreamy signing off... nite nite...
