Antalya: A Brief Resort Guide

The Turkish Riviera is a piece of turquoise coast that can be found in the southwest of the country, providing visitors with exceptional climes, incredible beaches and crystal clear seas. Located in the area, holidays in Antalya are perfect for anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of some of the more vibrant resorts, giving visitors a more relaxing environment in which to spend their summer sojourn. 

Antalya is heaving with shimmering beaches and delectable eateries that can keep you occupied during your stay, but its appeal doesn’t stop there. History and heritage is rife in the area, with plenty of sites to visit should you wish to spend your time exploring as well as unwinding.

Of course, the resort in which you decide to base yourself for the duration of your stay is an important choice and with various resorts on offer within the Antalya province, you have quite the decision to make. Here’s a brief outline of some of the popular resorts in the area and why they would be a perfect base for your visit. 

Lara Beach would be the ideal spot for sunworshippers. From the azure waters to the glistening beaches, if you’re hoping to do very little during your Turkish retreat, this would be the place for you. If your plans are to top up your tan, watch the world go by and recharge your batteries, you’ll be in the right place here. 

Side is a quaint fishing village that attracts travellers from all walks of life. Whether you want to spend your days on the beautiful coast, stroll around the cobbled streets of the resort or explore the bounty of museums and ruins in the area, there’s something available for you. 

Colakli offers the ultimate in tranquillity. If you plan on playing on the beach with your kids during your stay, Colakli is the perfect resort for you, while a trip to the Manavgat Caves would make an excellent itinerary filler if you can tear yourself away from the golden sands.

Whatever resort suits your personal tastes, an Antalya holiday would be a great way to while away a week or two this summer. Take a look online for some great value vacations this summer.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
