At Aberdeen and London Heathrow Airport

My Scotland trip posts have finally come to an end... After our scrumptious dinner in Mary's place, we checked-in to Jury Inn once more before leaving for the airport the very next morning.  Jury Inn has been our home for nearly a week and we love the place here very much.  Main reason is that this hotel is is inside the shopping mall building, something like Cititel Hotel in Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur.  Very convenient especially for travelers like us who love eating and shopping at the same time!
Entrance to the Jury Inn
We have "grown" familiar with the front desk people and they with us...
Being the only Asians guests there at that time. :)
So.. we bade our goodbye to Aberdeen...from our car.. LOL....
Perhaps we will come by here again...Let's wait and see... 
With the GPS, we drove to the airport...
While we went to check-in our luggages, Aaron returned the rented car...
From Aberdeen, we flew to London.. 
Aberdeen airport is small and very user friendly... 
You can have a nice cup of hot drink while waiting for the call..
The flight to London takes around one hour plus.. 
Distance almost like flying from Ipoh to Singapore...
I guess we were the only Asians to board British Airways then...
Landed in London Heathrow... we were one of the earliest to reach our boarding hall..
From London ...we flew to Singapore....

Reaching Singapore Changi Airport at around 5pm...
Since it was almost evening, I stayed one night in Singapore...

The next morning I took a morning flight back to IPOH...
Firefly flew me back to IPOH....
Pheww... Finally....
Well... that is Our Trip...
Though it was only a 12 days trip, it seems that we have "covered" a lot...
I am glad that I came... I was hesitating in the beginning... worrying about this and that...
And of course, I relented in the end....
This trip is an "eye opener" for me... to see a small part of the world...
To me, this small part is the biggest event so far... 
So much to discover, so much to "wow" over.... 
No Regrets.. Only Full of Thanks...

  10. There's no place like home, sweet home. The mere thought of the long haul flights puts me off flying - I cannot sleep on board, never mind how many hours. Killing!

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 …
