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.

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 …
