Travel Plans

Autumn  is coming soon, how about making a trip to Europe?  i have not been to the many countries in east or West Europe as yet.   My last furthest trip was during the spring and I spent two beautiful weeks in Scotland.  The weather was at its best,, it was very cooling and I love it very much though I was wrapped up from the top to the bottom.  This was my second trip to Scotland, my first time to this beautiful country was in the 1980.  I was there to attend my brother's convocation and that was my first trip overseas. I remember during my two week stay, my brother took me around a few places such as Edinburgh, Dundee and down south to Lindon.  I can still remember the historical castles and one of them is the Edinburgh Castle.  It was one of the most memorable place I have ever been and I wouldn't want to miss it when I went there again last April.  The scenery was so spectacular! I can remember going to the beautiful parks and gardens, the flowers were fully bloomed then. Now thinking back I wish I could make another trip to Edinburgh once again. I would love to visit the cathedrals and the museums, Mary King's Close and the Outlook Tower.

But the next trip I would like to visit are some Europe countries such as Italy, Austria, Belgium, France and the list goes on and on.  But before I go, I must get more information about these places I wanted to go.  I am sure my kids will love to follow me.  My second son has plans to further his studies in UK. I have seen him checking out details on some universities and I hope he will make his decision soon.  His finals will be in December and hopefully by then he will be able to make up his mind.  Before he goes for further studies, we hope to do some traveling, together as a family.  I guess traveling is in our blood... Lol... Most important thing is money when it comes to traveling especially to faraway places.  Better put some savings aside from now on, it is never too late to save, right?

  1. We love, love, LOVE Edinburgh! Definitely visit again.

    Six years ago, we rented an apartment (I forgot the name, but it was next to a brewery). The apartment was very affordable then, but it has doubled now.

  3. Hi Claire, yes will be nice, however I prefer Glasgow, not so cold. While Edinburgh is the capital city, Glasgow is largest with more excitement I believe.
    Must try the whisky, make you feel warm.
    While there take some time to travel south to the Lake District. Will be nice.

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
