Exploring Stirling On Foot

The journey to Stirling from Kenmore took more than an hour to reach.. (if I am not mistaken.. maybe I slept in the car that I couldn't remember much) All I remember was looking for a place to stay and we went in the wrong way.  Eventually our car got stuck in the one-way path and we had to reverse the car out almost immediately... Some of the local folks were grinning from ear to ear when they saw us squeezing our car out of the narrow path! :)

No, I was not the driver who went in the wrong route.. hahahaha...
After some turnings, we finally found our One Night Stay Home...
Not the luxurious type..
A bit compact but as long as it is clean and cozy, we don't mind..
B & B here cost 89 pounds...
From the window sill, this is our scenery....
We left our stuff there and headed off to town to explore...
Busy with my gadget... 
One thing I notice in Scotland...
Wherever we go, we do not see people holding on to smart phones or Ipad..
Young or old, they are not engrossed with those gadgets...
Not like us here...Oh Gosh!
The people there communicate more with real people..
Looking to each other face to face...
Just like we were when we were younger... 
Didn't see much vehicles around too..
Less pollution...fresher cleaner air...
Peaceful ... serenity fills Stirling town...
Read something about this town...
Stirling is the "brooch which clasps together the Highlands and the Lowlands."  

I notice each town has a clock tower.. hmmmm..
then we shopped around a bit in the ladies' section...
More like a Union Square here... 
Stirling is a compact and pedestrian-friendly town with a
 population of 100,000 living in and around the city.
Yes, I believe this... 
Next... we took a half hour walk to Stirling Castle..
Yes... WALK.. 
My poor legssss!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
