I was told not to miss Sugarloaf Mountain for my trip to Rockville. Well, i do agree with that. The mountain view is just spectacular. Feel peace and calm visiting in cold freezing winter. It's the outskirt and i dare not travel there without any GPS.

Geologically, Sugarloaf is known as a monadnock, a mountain that remains after the erosion of the surrounding land. Here, that process took approximately 14 million years. The rugged cliffs on the summit are composed primarily of quartzite, the predominant type of rock on the mountain.

The dominant tree species on Sugarloaf are the oaks of both red and white groups. These trees are being threatened by oak decline, a result of several factors of which the introduced gypsy moth is a part. Other trees include black gum, tulip poplar, black birch and eastern hemlock. The more than 500 species of plants here include a variety of wildflowers, many of which can be found blooming during the warm weather months.

White tailed deer are abundant on and around the mountain. Other mammals include flying squirrel, red fox, eastern cottontail and raccoon. The forest birds include the great horned owl, pileated woodpecker, wild turkey and red shouldered hawk. During the spring and fall, many migratory species of songbirds can be found.

My plan to New Jersey was cancelled due to the bad and unpredictable weather. For an 30 min drive, i visited Frederick, an old town with old buildings and antique shops. Give me a malacca impression.

I like the scenic view when it snows. Maybe it is human nature that will be more appreciate to something we do not own. Walking on the snow just like stepping on the sandy beach. However, it is damn difficult to control the car.

One person only can buy 5kg. My wife was unable to get even one of the regular cooking oil. It will be a hike in price again. :( What will happen to our economy.....

5kg buying limit on cooking oil

PUTRAJAYA: Five kilograms – that is the maximum amount of cooking oil that each consumer can buy when a move to solve the shortage of the essential item is enforced next week.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal however did not specify when the move would be implemented to increase stocks of cooking oil, especially in areas like Kelantan, Pahang, Malacca, Kedah and some parts of the Klang Valley where the shelves are getting bare.

Scarce commodity: A customer picking up a bottle of cooking oil from an almost empty rack at a hypermarket in Petaling Jaya yesterday. The Government hopes to overcome the shortage in a week or two. — AZHAR MAHFOF / The Star
Shafie said that while manufacturers have been instructed to increase production from 48,000 tonnes to 53,886 tonnes a month, the restriction in purchase was necessary to ensure there would be no hoarding or panic buying.
