More Sightseeing In Edinburgh City

Stretching out my Edinburgh posts and pictures....

We continued our sightseeing around the town by driving a bit and walking a lot... I remember the last time I came here, it was in the 1980s... I could only remember seeing a few castles and nothing to remember about the town.. well, what to expect from my memory.. after all, it was more than 30 years ago!  LOL.. Before I flew over to Scotland, I read a bit here and there about the places I was going to visit.. and now I am going to share a bit of information here...

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland (ok, now you know, right?) and it has a population of around half a million or more. (Now I know...  Ipoh only has around 250,000 people)... Edinburgh is also the world's first UNESCO City of Literature and one of the most beautiful cities in the world, regularly polls as one of the best places to live too!  Well, I don't mind staying there for a couple of months...(provided someone is willing to sponsor me...)
Come, take a walk with me.....

my tired legs....
Lets rest for a while here... 
We should have taken the city tour on the double decker bus
or taken a cab like this to paint the town red...
but instead we walked... 
and walked...
and walked....
and walked.....
Ok, take 5... 
cheese....
after that... I could hardly walk anymore..
and the rest of the sightseeing was done by driving... :)

    Hmm, walking is unavoidable during travelling, so a good pair of shoes is very important!

  13. I took the double decker on both my trips but yet did not finish going to all the places that it stops at. You only need to buy the ticket once and you could get on and off at various places many times so it is really worth it.

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
