The Sights And Food At Oban Town, Scotland

OBAN TOWN....

Oban is also a port in western Scotland, a gateway to the Hebridean islands.  Seafood eateries cluster by the harbour and we walked around the seafront, from one end to the other.   That is how I lost the food calories when I travel around...  I walked and walked till I felt my legs were on "auto cruise!"  But I love it!  I can eat more after that!  LOL.... I really don't mind walking long distance even though the weather is below 10 degrees.

Yes, I think everyone would have noticed by now that I always have my pink winter jacket on... LOL... That is the warmest jacket I have and beneath the winter jacket is just a pullover.  With one wool scarf around my neck and a pair of comfortable walking shoes, I feel safe from the cold.

After the long walk, we randomly walked into one of the cafes at the harbourfront to have our lunch.  For the five of us, we ordered a few dishes and beer, costing around 50 pounds.. Now looking back at our lunch, we did not actually eat a lot, did we?  :)
Beautiful Oban... 
At the harbourfront... 
The Walkers... 
Sunny but cold... 
Along the main street.... 
Quiet and peaceful... 
We stopped by here to the famous Oban Distillery... 
However we did not go for the wine tasting and tour... 

We are more interested in this place instead...
FOOD!
Seafood pasta... 
Sea Bass with creamy sauce.. 
Seafood chowder... 
And I forgot what else... 
Fresh mussels not to be missed... 
And before digging in.... cheese!!
Now I know why Oban is highly recommended!

  4. This is a beautiful place, it has everything! Good tour. Wow, you will walk when it is 10 degrees!! Well, I guess as long as there is no wind! Look at the beautiful ceiling in the distillery! And the seafood pasta looks wonderful, wish I had the recipe. The pink coat is made just for you!! No one else could look or feel better in it.

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 …
