After decades of corporate life, I am changing my career into tourism. From my base in Penang, Malaysia, I conduct day trips and overnight trips all across Malaysia. My tour can be custom made for big group or followed a fixed itinerary for small group. I particularly like trivia stuff and would like to share interesting facts about my hometown and country.

Asian Eyes' USA - Texas Lake Travis
Oct/5/2012: During the weekdays in Austin I did not have much time to enjoy the local scene except on Friday evening. After work that day, Apple brought Kevin, Colin, Boon and I to Lake Travis. The attraction here was the restaurants with sunset view overlooking Lake Travis. Yup, the sunset view was beautiful and we happily snapping away until the sun completely disappeared from view. The restaurant's fare here were BBQ meats and home brew beer. We ordered beers, salads, soups, a plate of tortilla dip, moist brisket and 2 racks of ribs. The foods are good, especially the brisket and ribs, but unfortunately we ordered too much ribs for the 5 of us. After we ate our full, we still had 3 boxes of leftovers for supper. Nevertheless Lake Travis was worth the visit. Thank you Apple. Here are the photos we took at Lake Travis: Location: The Oasis, Travis / Burnet counties, northwest of Austin, Texas, USA. Coordinates: 30°23′31″N 97°54′24″W

Nice Baby Rack Rib. We have ordered too much that we have to pack them to take away.
Locally brew cool beer to go with the BBQ meat - nice
Visitors jostling for the best place to view sunset over Lake Travis, reputed to be the best in whole of Austin.
Moist Beef Brisket, tasted like Char Siew but nicer - tender and juicy. It was one of the best I had.
One for the album. We have jolly good time at Lake Travis
