Exploring Kenmore And Taymouth

Yes, I am back in Scotland again.. oopppss.. I mean I am back to posting up my travels while I was in Scotland... the posts seems never ending, right? But they will be... in a couple more posts, my pictures will all be published here in my travel blog here.

I stayed 2 nights in Edinburgh and the very next day, we moved on.... east or west I really did not know.. my SIL and I just let the driver decide our next destination... and in an hour or so, we reached Taymouth.  My son had done some homework the night before, using the venues directory to get all the information he needed ....
Kenmore Hotel, Scotlands Oldest Inn
This reminded me of Cameron Highlands Heritage apartments...
We went in to check out the rooms and get some warmth...
I think this is a good place during winter... I am sure many like to ski here..
On the way to this place, we saw many snow filled mountains..
I am sure this inn will be popular during winter
and I think there have many storage for skis.
Then we walked out from the hotel and checked out the surroundings....
Walking distance to the Taymouth Castle...
Kenmore is a beautiful village with sightseeing landmarks...
Taymouth Castle is one of them and worry not about accommodation..
There are plenty to choose from... cottage homes and country guest houses..
I guess my son is using 
Nestling on the banks of the River Tay, the scenery is really breathtaking...
The three ducklings...
and the Three Swans... hahahaa...
Looks sunny but as usual, freezing to our bones...
Perhaps I was wearing something too "thin"... my legs were kind of shivering against the blowing wind...
Amidst it all, I love this breathtaking and majestic mountains of Kenmore, 
the River Tay is not to be missed spot... a spectacular sight to behold...
the surrounding areas offers a place of relaxation for those who wants to breath in comfort and peace
and for the more adventurous, it is a magnificent countryside to be explored....

  8. It does look so lovely and peaceful! Have you spotted the Loch Ness Monster yet? The Kenmore is more modern and inviting looking than the other buildings.

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 …
