Next Destination Cardiff In Wales

AFTER TWO NIGHTS IN OXFORD, we checked out and continued our journey to another country, Wales which is part of UK (I just got to know that recently only) Oh my Geography!

Our next destination is Cardiff and we spent three nights here in a modest hotel called Ibis!  A budget hotel and yet clean and comfortable, most important, walking distance to town.  Three nights cost around £200 or less but parking is £4-7 a day... for two nights we came back late and we had to park for £12 per night at another place.  Other than that, Cardiff is a nice place to visit....
Reminds me of Penang Bridge and toll is £6.60 one way ..
Our humble lodging for three nights...
Walking to town the Beer Brain in front of us.. Took this picture as a landmark..
At Frankie n Benny having our lunch... 
We had our lunch at Frankie and Benny's at the mall. No choices for me here, but to my surprise, the spaghetti was fabulous with the meatballs, I was pretty satisfied! 
After a fifteen minutes walk, we reached the shopping street...
Checking for directions to which mall....
Castle at the backpground... 
We came here to wait for a friend....
She caught a giant pokemon at one of the shops...
At the Cardiff market...
The aroma of the Welsh cakes led us here...
29pence per piece....

We were told that we must try their Welsh cakes, 
buttery and soft especially just freshly baked from the oven... 
It was drizzling at the later part in the afternoon, the rain was soft so it didn't dampen our spirits and we continued to Walk around till nearly 6pm. Rested awhile at the hotel before our next itinerary ...
Cardiff Bay!

  2. I have always wanted to go to Wales, so have really enjoyed this tour. The meal looks American! Wow, what a great bakery! Looks like an old castle wall in the middle of the city!

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 …
