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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
