Haunted Hotels for Halloween


Halloween is here again, the night when ghosts and other beings roam the Earth while people dress up and head from house to house in search of candy. In some places, ghosts never leave: plenty of castles, hotels and inns claim to have their own ghosts. If you ever wanted to stay at a haunted hotel, now is the ideal chance to do it.

Langham Hotel (London, UK)
Located in the center of London, this grand hotel is renown for its services and for its ghosts. Some famous names, including Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde, have stayed at this hotel together with the ghost of a German prince who fell to his death from one of the hotel windows. Another visitor who never left the hotel is a mysterious man dressed in Victorian attire. Guests who stayed in room 333 claim to have seen floating orbs and non-corporeal entities floating over them, and more than one guest has fled to the safety of other rooms.

Castle Stuart (Inverness, Scotland)
This ancient castle was turned into a hotel... and the ghosts who haunted the castle decided to stay there. The East Tower is known for its ghostly sightings, which include a variety of spirits.  But I love the one which I stayed here in Edinburgh, very comfortable and nice!

Stanley hotel (Colorado, USA)
This palatial hotel can be found near the mountains of the state of Colorado. This hotel is one of the most popular places for those who want to see a ghost: there have been sightings of the hotel owner and his wife, several housekeepers and a variety of unknown spirits floating around the hotel. One of the most famous visitors was Stephen King, who, after a creepy stay in room 217 wrote The Shining. The banquet hall is a notorious haunted spot, where a musically-inclined ghost plays the piano. Steps of running children can be heard on one of the upper floors, and there have been reports of moving objects in room 418,

Hotel Chelsea (NY, USA)
Findingaccommodation in NY is not easy... and some hotels come with their very own ghost stories! Celebrities once flocked to this red brick building, crowned by a neon sign in NY. Some famous names on the guest list include Jackson Pollock, Madonna and Leonard Cohen. Some guests decided not to leave: room 206 is still haunted by Dylan Thomas, an author who died there. The elevator and one of the halls are common areas where the spirits of Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy, whom the bassist allegedly assassinated before his own overdose, can be seen.

Gettysburg Hotel (Pennsylvania, USA)
This creepy mansion used to be an inn... and some people who used to frequent the inn decided to stay there. Guests have claimed that several wounded soldiers and the ghost of a young girl who died during the Civil War can be seen wandering around.

Russell Hotel (Sydney, Australia)
This hotel is located in The Rocks, a neighbourhood in Sydney. It location close to the docks means that previously, it was the place where sailors went for some nightly entertainment... and now the hotel houses several ghosts of crime members, ladies of the night and sailors.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
