River Avon And The Circus, Bath

AS WE STROLLED ALONG THE BATH CITY, we came across the beautiful sights of River Avon and spent some moments there including a light lunch at a pub restaurant overlooking the folds of the river.... Then we proceeded on our walk around the city including the Bath market and Aaron directed us to a place called Circus and the Royal Cresent.  We have to take a long walk up descending street.. pheww.... a very challenging walk for me going up, coming down though is not a problem.... and after our nearly five hours of walking around the city, we called it a day.... Sitting back on the car seat was a Big Relief for my weary legs.  Age is not a number?  For me, age is definitely showing on me... I have walked almost 20K steps in those four hours tour!  Phew.... no wonder I could eat like a horse after that!!

Walking to the River Avon....
Yes, having a rest here... 
And to admire the beautiful folds of the Avon River... 
There is a history behind the river...
We spent some moments here taking lots of photos... 
And since we were there, we joined our fellow tourists here for a light lunch... 
But we wouldn't want to eat under the sun.... cos we are Asians...  LOL... 
We preferred the cooling air inside.... 
And mussels in some creamy sauce and wine is their specialty... 
These came in a set minus the bottle of sparkling lemon juice.... 
It was around 13 pounds if not mistaken... 
Our walking resumed after the light break.... 
Walking here and there with Aaron's directions... he has been here before... 
He always like to take us to markets....
Food and souvenirs at every corner...
But we did not buy anything.... at all... just look see....
And from the market, we walked uphill to a place called Circus... 
 My girl did a "performance" when we reached there... it was a upheaval walk for me..
I thought of doing the same like the others here... lazing around...
And the background is the Circus cos the houses are "curved" like in a circus tent... 
Our Bath for the day.... 
Back to Cardiff for the third night....
And the next day we left for London....

  1. Cooling air inside? That's new! Usually there, it is nice and cool outside...or cold even but stuffy and hot inside. They do not need air conditioning, not like here.

  4. I love YOU behind this cute pink cart of flowers! I could not figure out why it was called the Circus, and you told me before I even had to ask! The steps on the river are my favorite today, I have never seen anything like this! You are so strong to walk this much; this will also build up your strength! I see your daughter has met the queen!

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
