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!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
