Love Rhossili Bay At Swansea

SECOND DAY IN CARDIFF- We started off the day driving up to NewSouth Wales University to pick up a friend and we proceeded to Bridgend which is around an hour away.  We stopped at Bridgend Designer Outlet Shopping Centre for a couple of hours, all because of my girl.  Something new to her and she spent a couple of hours walking around and eventually ended up buying just one piece!  Phew...a Big relief for me!!  Lol....

After our lunch at the food court, we continued on our journey to Swansea!   Aaron told us that we must visit Rhossili Bay, it has been voted into the top four of Britain's Best Beach by TripAdvisors Travellers’ Choice for four years running AND was the first beach to be awarded Britain's Best Beach for two years in succession!  The journey up the narrow roads were quite challenging and took us around 45 minutes to reach the spot....
The landmark ... Rhossili Bay....
Hotel named after the famous Worm Head island....
As we walked down the road leading to the hills.....
And one song came to my mind....
The hills are alive.....
With the sound of sea breeze......
Beautiful sight...just mesmerizing....
Layers and layers of waves.....
Panorama view.....
The Worm's head stretches out to sea and becomes an island when the tide comes in. The breathtaking view is completed by the long sandy beach and the towering cliffs and this makes it a popular destination throughout the year with surfers, paragliders and ramblers. However, Rhossili still manages to maintain its tranquility and unspoilt beauty.
We were at the cliff overlooking the sea....
Warning.... Steep cliffs....
However the young are very adventurous.... I get cold feet just looking at them from a distance..
That is the furthest I could stand and pose....
My cool pose... Lol...
Yes, I wish I could fly....
See the cliff behind me..... That is nothing compared to others...
I think I am safer with the sheep....
They are te happier lot!  Did a lot of Yaying Jumps!
We took numerous pictures just at the bay here....
A Must Visit place if anyone were to visit UK.... Swansea!!

  6. Lovely family pic.

    I think there is a large, covered market in Swansea if I am not mistaken selling a range of foods.

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 …
