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!

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 …
