Exploring Kenmore And Taymouth

Yes, I am back in Scotland again.. oopppss.. I mean I am back to posting up my travels while I was in Scotland... the posts seems never ending, right? But they will be... in a couple more posts, my pictures will all be published here in my travel blog here.

I stayed 2 nights in Edinburgh and the very next day, we moved on.... east or west I really did not know.. my SIL and I just let the driver decide our next destination... and in an hour or so, we reached Taymouth.  My son had done some homework the night before, using the venues directory to get all the information he needed ....
Kenmore Hotel, Scotlands Oldest Inn
This reminded me of Cameron Highlands Heritage apartments...
We went in to check out the rooms and get some warmth...
I think this is a good place during winter... I am sure many like to ski here..
On the way to this place, we saw many snow filled mountains..
I am sure this inn will be popular during winter
and I think there have many storage for skis.
Then we walked out from the hotel and checked out the surroundings....
Walking distance to the Taymouth Castle...
Kenmore is a beautiful village with sightseeing landmarks...
Taymouth Castle is one of them and worry not about accommodation..
There are plenty to choose from... cottage homes and country guest houses..
I guess my son is using 
Nestling on the banks of the River Tay, the scenery is really breathtaking...
The three ducklings...
and the Three Swans... hahahaa...
Looks sunny but as usual, freezing to our bones...
Perhaps I was wearing something too "thin"... my legs were kind of shivering against the blowing wind...
Amidst it all, I love this breathtaking and majestic mountains of Kenmore, 
the River Tay is not to be missed spot... a spectacular sight to behold...
the surrounding areas offers a place of relaxation for those who wants to breath in comfort and peace
and for the more adventurous, it is a magnificent countryside to be explored....

  8. It does look so lovely and peaceful! Have you spotted the Loch Ness Monster yet? The Kenmore is more modern and inviting looking than the other buildings.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
