Our One Night Stay At Jury Inn Hotel, Glasgow

ONE NIGHT IN GLASGOW...

We checked in to Jury Inn hotel in the evening after dropping Gab at the train station.  This is our first night stay in Glasgow and Aaron booked the hotel through an online website which was giving a discount for this triple room at around 114 pounds.  Initially we thought that Gab would be staying one night with us and since the double room was giving the same rate, why not choose the triple?  LOL... *kiasu*

Parking is another issue here, unlike back home, hotels normally provide parking lots for guests.  Over here, we have to look for our own parking space and it would be a blessing if we could get one opposite the hotel and with discount some more.  Normally the rates can be high as 25 pounds per day, as for ours, we paid 7 pounds after getting a discount from the hotel, that is indeed very cheap already!

It was freezing cold in Glasgow, only 4 degrees from our handphone info.  We wanted something hot and soupy for dinner and we entered one Japanese restaurant without hesitation.  Well, do not have high expectations when eating Asian food in these type of places, we eat just to overcome our cravings for something hot.
From the hotel room during the day... 
Our spacious bed for the night stay.... 
Comfy and nice...
At the Japanese restaurant which was quite crowded... 
My bowl of Chicken Ramen soup...
Forgot to tell them to omit the bamboo shoots..
Really cannot tolerate the strong pungent smell...
Quickly, I gulped them up before they spoil the broth as well... 
My son ordered spicy soup... 
But of course, it was not spicy at all... 
We are Asians ma... LOL... 
Our morning breakfast at the hotel... 
And my dinner and breakfast expressions!

  1. They would be very happy if you asked them to omit the bamboo shoots because there are other customers who would be happy to pay more to add an extra portion of bamboo shoots. Good to see your happy face in the 2 photos during dinner and breakfast! :D

  2. Well, the food looks very good anyway. Here, all hotels have parking lots. So your situation was very unusual! Maybe that was why the price was so good.

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 …
