From Aberdeen To London And Oxford

SATURDAY MORNING WE LEFT FOR LONDON... It was only an hour plus flight from Aberdeen to London.  We reached London around 1pm and from there, we hired an Avis car and drove straight to Oxford which was an hour plus away from London.  This is our first time going to Oxford and we didn't know what to expect.  For all we know, Oxford is the place where academic is highly respected.  When you say you graduated from Oxford university, you will expect some expressions like...  "wahhhh, so clever ah".... Hahahaha... Ok, I am speaking for myself only....

Back to my post, we managed to find our guest house without any hassle using the GPS... I think I would not be able to if I were the driver!  The guest house is not so new but nevertheless, it was clean and the staff were pleasant.  Breakast was included, simple food like bread, cereals, buns, yogurt and hot drinks were provided.  All we need actually was a nice convenient spot where we do not have to drive into the city, all were within walking distance...
Arrival at Heaththrow Airport....
Our Guest House called Cherwell... 
Walking distance to the city and restaurants...
Our humble room...
One double and one single with attached bathroom....
Cost around £30 per person and we stayed for two nights....
After a good rest, we had our dinner here... Just 10 minutes walk away.....
Mixed grill....
With pineapple sauce.... Very nice... Around £15
And slow oven baked chicken with some special sauce... Cannot remember what....
Around £11...
After our light dinner, we walked across to complete the meal.....
Many to choose from......
And we got a double scoops to share... £4
Yes, our meal ended in desserts, no less..... Time to call it a night...
Once the light went out, everything was silent to us....
I guess We were fully exhausted after a long day....

  1. Two of my favourite places in England. Make sure you catch a musical at London West End, an experience of a lifetime! Wonder what the ones that are currently showing now are.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
