Antalya: A Brief Resort Guide

The Turkish Riviera is a piece of turquoise coast that can be found in the southwest of the country, providing visitors with exceptional climes, incredible beaches and crystal clear seas. Located in the area, holidays in Antalya are perfect for anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of some of the more vibrant resorts, giving visitors a more relaxing environment in which to spend their summer sojourn. 

Antalya is heaving with shimmering beaches and delectable eateries that can keep you occupied during your stay, but its appeal doesn’t stop there. History and heritage is rife in the area, with plenty of sites to visit should you wish to spend your time exploring as well as unwinding.

Of course, the resort in which you decide to base yourself for the duration of your stay is an important choice and with various resorts on offer within the Antalya province, you have quite the decision to make. Here’s a brief outline of some of the popular resorts in the area and why they would be a perfect base for your visit. 

Lara Beach would be the ideal spot for sunworshippers. From the azure waters to the glistening beaches, if you’re hoping to do very little during your Turkish retreat, this would be the place for you. If your plans are to top up your tan, watch the world go by and recharge your batteries, you’ll be in the right place here. 

Side is a quaint fishing village that attracts travellers from all walks of life. Whether you want to spend your days on the beautiful coast, stroll around the cobbled streets of the resort or explore the bounty of museums and ruins in the area, there’s something available for you. 

Colakli offers the ultimate in tranquillity. If you plan on playing on the beach with your kids during your stay, Colakli is the perfect resort for you, while a trip to the Manavgat Caves would make an excellent itinerary filler if you can tear yourself away from the golden sands.

Whatever resort suits your personal tastes, an Antalya holiday would be a great way to while away a week or two this summer. Take a look online for some great value vacations this summer.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...

Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
