Shopping At St Enoch, Glasgow

SHOPPING!!

The last time I visited Glasgow was in 2015 and it was not an ordinary trip, in fact, I made "headlines" when I came to this trip on two wheels!  That was a very extraordinary trip which will never be forgotten by many, especially me!  LOL.... I dug back my old blog posts and there I was... wheeling through Europe!
Taken in October, 2015
And now taken in November 2018... 
At the same area three years later.... 
Yay!!! 
Thank God for His Blessings that I could come here again, without the wheels!!

Back to my present post, this place St Enoch is not to be missed.  From our Jury Inn Hotel, it was just a few minutes walk to this Glasgow Institution whereby it is now a home to many big brands including the biggest names in High Street fashion.  
There I am... at Cath Kidston... 
There was a sale going on... 
I sent some messages to my friends...
And got what they needed me to buy!

I could not remember how long we had walked, definitely more than two hours, going in and out of the malls, ending up buying a knee guard and some supplements for my poor bones!  Yes, my knee was still hurting from the twist I got from the badminton game, but it was a small problem compared to the fracture I had in 2015!  LOL... 
And on and on we walked... and walked... 
And of course, taking pictures as we strolled along the cold weather... 
The whole area was bustling with people from all ages... it was a weekend, after all... 
Soon it was time for us to leave the city.... 
Driving through the city to the highway.... 
Back to Aberdeen... home sweet home....

Our One Night Stay At Jury Inn Hotel, Glasgow

ONE NIGHT IN GLASGOW...

We checked in to Jury Inn hotel in the evening after dropping Gab at the train station.  This is our first night stay in Glasgow and Aaron booked the hotel through an online website which was giving a discount for this triple room at around 114 pounds.  Initially we thought that Gab would be staying one night with us and since the double room was giving the same rate, why not choose the triple?  LOL... *kiasu*

Parking is another issue here, unlike back home, hotels normally provide parking lots for guests.  Over here, we have to look for our own parking space and it would be a blessing if we could get one opposite the hotel and with discount some more.  Normally the rates can be high as 25 pounds per day, as for ours, we paid 7 pounds after getting a discount from the hotel, that is indeed very cheap already!

It was freezing cold in Glasgow, only 4 degrees from our handphone info.  We wanted something hot and soupy for dinner and we entered one Japanese restaurant without hesitation.  Well, do not have high expectations when eating Asian food in these type of places, we eat just to overcome our cravings for something hot.
From the hotel room during the day... 
Our spacious bed for the night stay.... 
Comfy and nice...
At the Japanese restaurant which was quite crowded... 
My bowl of Chicken Ramen soup...
Forgot to tell them to omit the bamboo shoots..
Really cannot tolerate the strong pungent smell...
Quickly, I gulped them up before they spoil the broth as well... 
My son ordered spicy soup... 
But of course, it was not spicy at all... 
We are Asians ma... LOL... 
Our morning breakfast at the hotel... 
And my dinner and breakfast expressions!

A Balanced Diet To Healthy Living

With my "travel mode" on for the past few months, I have been busy going here and there.  Now after all the traveling, it is good to be back in back in my home sweet home again!  I have been busy getting my house cleaned up after my absence. I am also trying to do some healthy home cooking after consuming so much of arteries clogging food during my travel.

It is possible to lose a large amount of weight in a short amount of time. The way to do it is a combination of many things - diet, exercise, calorie deficit, etc. There are many weight loss diets that show results fast. As you all know from the postings on my blog, I have been savoring and indulging in lots of mouth-watering food for the past few months. Not only that, now that I am back in my hometown, I have been going out daily with my friends to "catch up" and eating all the local food which I have missed while I was away.  Needless to say, I have put on weight, not surprising since I have been eating too much and now is the time for me to shed some of my body fat.

Other than losing weight through dieting, there is another option for those who loves food as much as I do.  The solution is ultrasonic weight loss machine, a product using fat freezing that uses controlled freezing to eliminate stubborn fats that is not possible through dieting and exercise.  The advantages of using Lipo Freeze Body Sculpting Salon Equipment are as follows:-

1. Cool and comfortable, painless;
2. No need for surgical operation, no wound;
3. No anesthesia and no pinholes;
4. Safety, no recovery period;
5. An average of 20% fat could be reduced.

Another product is called Body Massage Machine which is also used to control the cryopreservation effect, and cryopreservation subcutaneous adipocytes with high efficiency and precision.  It can also reduce fats without side effects, according to the website here.


Having said that, it is best that we resort to natural dieting. A typical meal day consists of a combination of food, all meant to give you the requisite calories. Breakfast is mostly simple - toast, sometimes with egg, sometimes with peanut butter or a banana. Lunch is toast again with tuna, and coffee. Dinner has treats like ice cream, apple, banana and food like beans and meat. As the week progresses, food alternates among cottage cheese, hot dogs, carrots, broccoli, cheddar and crackers. Pretty simple and still effective.
