INTO THE WOODS...camping #1


MT. Pinos road

destination, McGill Campround. lunch time, we had baked chicken

the kids pitching their tent

my guy, pitching the toilet, our tent was an easy one, it was a KODIAK pop-up tent. absolutely love it. easy as 1-2-3. You just open the zipper, pull the string..and whalaaaa...there's your tent!

TADAAAA.......this we spent a few minutes to finally set it up. i wish theres a pop-up shower too!

So we went camping last week at Mt. Pinos. We go there just about once or twice every summer.
We love the place so much, since it is really far far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The campground is so primitive, no lights, no shower just restroom. But i never enjoy that part, so i had to bring our own shower tent and portable potty and doodie bags. At around 10 pm everything is just peace and quite, except the rolling sound of wind, the night birds and some other night creatures. The temperature was just perfect, though it was freezing cold at night, around 40 something degrees.


  1. Your camping trip looks so amazing, I am enthralled by the pop-up toilet! Haha does someone have to carry it out into the woods to empty it?

    Bak Kwa is a type of barbequed pork meat, and it's texture is similar to beef jerky but softer and more pliable. It's a very popular snack among the Chinese community. :)
