Love Rhossili Bay At Swansea

SECOND DAY IN CARDIFF- We started off the day driving up to NewSouth Wales University to pick up a friend and we proceeded to Bridgend which is around an hour away.  We stopped at Bridgend Designer Outlet Shopping Centre for a couple of hours, all because of my girl.  Something new to her and she spent a couple of hours walking around and eventually ended up buying just one piece!  Phew...a Big relief for me!!  Lol....

After our lunch at the food court, we continued on our journey to Swansea!   Aaron told us that we must visit Rhossili Bay, it has been voted into the top four of Britain's Best Beach by TripAdvisors Travellers’ Choice for four years running AND was the first beach to be awarded Britain's Best Beach for two years in succession!  The journey up the narrow roads were quite challenging and took us around 45 minutes to reach the spot....
The landmark ... Rhossili Bay....
Hotel named after the famous Worm Head island....
As we walked down the road leading to the hills.....
And one song came to my mind....
The hills are alive.....
With the sound of sea breeze......
Beautiful sight...just mesmerizing....
Layers and layers of waves.....
Panorama view.....
The Worm's head stretches out to sea and becomes an island when the tide comes in. The breathtaking view is completed by the long sandy beach and the towering cliffs and this makes it a popular destination throughout the year with surfers, paragliders and ramblers. However, Rhossili still manages to maintain its tranquility and unspoilt beauty.
We were at the cliff overlooking the sea....
Warning.... Steep cliffs....
However the young are very adventurous.... I get cold feet just looking at them from a distance..
That is the furthest I could stand and pose....
My cool pose... Lol...
Yes, I wish I could fly....
See the cliff behind me..... That is nothing compared to others...
I think I am safer with the sheep....
They are te happier lot!  Did a lot of Yaying Jumps!
We took numerous pictures just at the bay here....
A Must Visit place if anyone were to visit UK.... Swansea!!

  6. Lovely family pic.

    I think there is a large, covered market in Swansea if I am not mistaken selling a range of foods.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
