Next Destination Cardiff In Wales

AFTER TWO NIGHTS IN OXFORD, we checked out and continued our journey to another country, Wales which is part of UK (I just got to know that recently only) Oh my Geography!

Our next destination is Cardiff and we spent three nights here in a modest hotel called Ibis!  A budget hotel and yet clean and comfortable, most important, walking distance to town.  Three nights cost around £200 or less but parking is £4-7 a day... for two nights we came back late and we had to park for £12 per night at another place.  Other than that, Cardiff is a nice place to visit....
Reminds me of Penang Bridge and toll is £6.60 one way ..
Our humble lodging for three nights...
Walking to town the Beer Brain in front of us.. Took this picture as a landmark..
At Frankie n Benny having our lunch... 
We had our lunch at Frankie and Benny's at the mall. No choices for me here, but to my surprise, the spaghetti was fabulous with the meatballs, I was pretty satisfied! 
After a fifteen minutes walk, we reached the shopping street...
Checking for directions to which mall....
Castle at the backpground... 
We came here to wait for a friend....
She caught a giant pokemon at one of the shops...
At the Cardiff market...
The aroma of the Welsh cakes led us here...
29pence per piece....

We were told that we must try their Welsh cakes, 
buttery and soft especially just freshly baked from the oven... 
It was drizzling at the later part in the afternoon, the rain was soft so it didn't dampen our spirits and we continued to Walk around till nearly 6pm. Rested awhile at the hotel before our next itinerary ...
Cardiff Bay!

  2. I have always wanted to go to Wales, so have really enjoyed this tour. The meal looks American! Wow, what a great bakery! Looks like an old castle wall in the middle of the city!

  6. The cost of the Welsh cake is reasonable. I have never had freshly baked ones.

    Have a lovely time.

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... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
