Exploring Stirling On Foot

The journey to Stirling from Kenmore took more than an hour to reach.. (if I am not mistaken.. maybe I slept in the car that I couldn't remember much) All I remember was looking for a place to stay and we went in the wrong way.  Eventually our car got stuck in the one-way path and we had to reverse the car out almost immediately... Some of the local folks were grinning from ear to ear when they saw us squeezing our car out of the narrow path! :)

No, I was not the driver who went in the wrong route.. hahahaha...
After some turnings, we finally found our One Night Stay Home...
Not the luxurious type..
A bit compact but as long as it is clean and cozy, we don't mind..
B & B here cost 89 pounds...
From the window sill, this is our scenery....
We left our stuff there and headed off to town to explore...
Busy with my gadget... 
One thing I notice in Scotland...
Wherever we go, we do not see people holding on to smart phones or Ipad..
Young or old, they are not engrossed with those gadgets...
Not like us here...Oh Gosh!
The people there communicate more with real people..
Looking to each other face to face...
Just like we were when we were younger... 
Didn't see much vehicles around too..
Less pollution...fresher cleaner air...
Peaceful ... serenity fills Stirling town...
Read something about this town...
Stirling is the "brooch which clasps together the Highlands and the Lowlands."  

I notice each town has a clock tower.. hmmmm..
then we shopped around a bit in the ladies' section...
More like a Union Square here... 
Stirling is a compact and pedestrian-friendly town with a
 population of 100,000 living in and around the city.
Yes, I believe this... 
Next... we took a half hour walk to Stirling Castle..
Yes... WALK.. 
My poor legssss!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
