Street Performance At Romans Bath Abbey

ON THE THIRD DAY, Aaron drove to Bath, it was more than an hour drive from Cardiff.  Though the journey took more than one and half hours from Cardiff, Aaron preferred to stay in Cardiff so that we do not have to pack and go from one place to another.  It can be very "stressful" for the mother to leave from one place to another so he rather drive a bit longer to our next destination.  Yes, the place is called Bath... *if I did not come to Wales, I would not have heard of this place before*

Bath is best known for its Roman-built baths, the city became a spa when the Romans built baths and a temple in the valley of the River Avon.  The Romans took advantage of the area's natural hot springs by building the majestic Roman Baths, now a UNESCO heritage site.  Another attraction is the city's elegant Georgian architecture and it is best appreciated on foot.  

And that was exactly what we did when we arrived in Bath... we managed to get a parking near the train station, five hours for around 5 pounds.  From there we walked from one part to another and imagine we have walked for few hours around the town, fully amazed by its historic buildings and houses, all of the same colour.  The town looks so neat and Roman-nic like...
After more than an hour drive from Cardiff, we arrived in Bath.... 
We walked from the train station to the tourist street... 
At the happening place...
Music was in the air along the streets,
First thing, we looked for food, it was almost noon...
The shop which caught our eyes...
Sweet or savoury... hmmm... which one to choose... 
Oh, if we eat here, they will cost a bit more... if we take away, these goodies are cheaper...
We decided to take away, just sat at the bench some footsteps away from the shop....
 
This is the place where the attraction is... Bath Abbey.... 
 A lively piazza which is often filled with musicians and street artists....
Here and there, people everywhere.... 
We joined in the crowd.... taking pictures and listening to the music.... 
Near the Bath's famous spa... 

At the traffic free Abbey Churchyard....
And the two ladies joined in the crowd.. relaxing and listening to 
one handsome artiste with his classical guitar.. yes, I took some video clips....
Too good to miss that.... 
Too many pictures to withhold..... 
We ended up doing some street performance too...
But no one paying us any pennies... LOL.....

  2. Bath? Wowwwww!!!! You people really travelled really very far...go further south to Plymouth - I was there for 3 months...and head to St Ives, Land's End...don't bother going to Stonehenge, just a pile of stones and you are not allowed to go near.

    Oh ya!!! If you can locate it, Sheepstor is the place to go, not far from Plymouth - the burial grounds of the Brookes, the White Rajahs of Sarawak...and the lovely church beside it. So so so privileged to have been there!

  8. I always love the culture and lifestyle in overseas where the folks would laze all day on the public benches!

    Over here, no benches and if there are, some beggars and peddlars would be busy hawking.

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
