Haunted Hotels for Halloween


Halloween is here again, the night when ghosts and other beings roam the Earth while people dress up and head from house to house in search of candy. In some places, ghosts never leave: plenty of castles, hotels and inns claim to have their own ghosts. If you ever wanted to stay at a haunted hotel, now is the ideal chance to do it.

Langham Hotel (London, UK)
Located in the center of London, this grand hotel is renown for its services and for its ghosts. Some famous names, including Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde, have stayed at this hotel together with the ghost of a German prince who fell to his death from one of the hotel windows. Another visitor who never left the hotel is a mysterious man dressed in Victorian attire. Guests who stayed in room 333 claim to have seen floating orbs and non-corporeal entities floating over them, and more than one guest has fled to the safety of other rooms.

Castle Stuart (Inverness, Scotland)
This ancient castle was turned into a hotel... and the ghosts who haunted the castle decided to stay there. The East Tower is known for its ghostly sightings, which include a variety of spirits.  But I love the one which I stayed here in Edinburgh, very comfortable and nice!

Stanley hotel (Colorado, USA)
This palatial hotel can be found near the mountains of the state of Colorado. This hotel is one of the most popular places for those who want to see a ghost: there have been sightings of the hotel owner and his wife, several housekeepers and a variety of unknown spirits floating around the hotel. One of the most famous visitors was Stephen King, who, after a creepy stay in room 217 wrote The Shining. The banquet hall is a notorious haunted spot, where a musically-inclined ghost plays the piano. Steps of running children can be heard on one of the upper floors, and there have been reports of moving objects in room 418,

Hotel Chelsea (NY, USA)
Findingaccommodation in NY is not easy... and some hotels come with their very own ghost stories! Celebrities once flocked to this red brick building, crowned by a neon sign in NY. Some famous names on the guest list include Jackson Pollock, Madonna and Leonard Cohen. Some guests decided not to leave: room 206 is still haunted by Dylan Thomas, an author who died there. The elevator and one of the halls are common areas where the spirits of Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy, whom the bassist allegedly assassinated before his own overdose, can be seen.

Gettysburg Hotel (Pennsylvania, USA)
This creepy mansion used to be an inn... and some people who used to frequent the inn decided to stay there. Guests have claimed that several wounded soldiers and the ghost of a young girl who died during the Civil War can be seen wandering around.

Russell Hotel (Sydney, Australia)
This hotel is located in The Rocks, a neighbourhood in Sydney. It location close to the docks means that previously, it was the place where sailors went for some nightly entertainment... and now the hotel houses several ghosts of crime members, ladies of the night and sailors.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
