Cadiz And The Beaches Of The South Of Spain

Cádiz is an historical city located in the province of the same name in Andalusia, a region in the south of Spain. The area is known for its pristine, sandy beaches and its historical towns.

Explore the historical towns.

The city of Cádiz is located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. This city has many cultural landmarks, the most famous of which is the Cathedral. There are many terrace bars, cafés and restaurants near the cathedral square.

If you choose to visit the area, then you will find many historical towns and seaside resorts peppered along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Two of the most famous ones are Puerto de Santa María, known for its cobblestone streets that lead to an ancient castle, and Algeciras, a windy city with white washed buildings on the coast.

Do not miss the coastal town of Tarifa, which is known for its beaches and its historical city center. The town center is filled with low, stone buildings decorated with colourful flowers. At night, the town becomes a popular meeting place for windsurfers, who fill the bars and restaurants before heading to one of the many clubs and discos located in the area.

Tour the White Villages

The White Villages are a set of traditional villages located in the mountains of the province of Cádiz. They are known for their whitewashed houses decorated with colourful flowers. Arcos de la Frontera is one the most famous villages, located on a hill. Ubrique is another place worth visiting, being the birthplace of many bullfighters and having been recently declared Property of Cultural Interest.

Relax on the beaches

There are many blue-flag beaches in the province of Cádiz. La Cachucha beach is the urban beach located in the Bay of Cadiz, close to the historical landmarks the city is famous for. In the traditional town of Chiclana de la Frontera you will find La Barrosa, a clean beach with golden sands.

If you are into kitesurf and windsurf, then the sporty beach of Tarifa is your ideal choice. There is a camping and many hotels next to the beach, which is considered to be one of the province’s most clean beaches.

The nearby Bolonia beach is known for its beach bars and restaurants, located in wooden huts next to the sea. This beach offers a variety of water sports and a separate bathing area. North of the Bolonia Bay you will find a several ancient Roman ruins and a set of natural dunes overlooking the blue waters. Another beach one must visit is Zahara de los Atunes, known for its stretches of golden sands and turquoise waters. The African continent can bee seen from these beaches on a clear day, all of which are located in the southern tip of the peninsula.
Well, I love beaches and looking at these pictures, it reminded me of my own beach holiday I had last year.   One day I would love to go again for beach vacations and hope it will be soon!

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
