River Avon And The Circus, Bath

AS WE STROLLED ALONG THE BATH CITY, we came across the beautiful sights of River Avon and spent some moments there including a light lunch at a pub restaurant overlooking the folds of the river.... Then we proceeded on our walk around the city including the Bath market and Aaron directed us to a place called Circus and the Royal Cresent.  We have to take a long walk up descending street.. pheww.... a very challenging walk for me going up, coming down though is not a problem.... and after our nearly five hours of walking around the city, we called it a day.... Sitting back on the car seat was a Big Relief for my weary legs.  Age is not a number?  For me, age is definitely showing on me... I have walked almost 20K steps in those four hours tour!  Phew.... no wonder I could eat like a horse after that!!

Walking to the River Avon....
Yes, having a rest here... 
And to admire the beautiful folds of the Avon River... 
There is a history behind the river...
We spent some moments here taking lots of photos... 
And since we were there, we joined our fellow tourists here for a light lunch... 
But we wouldn't want to eat under the sun.... cos we are Asians...  LOL... 
We preferred the cooling air inside.... 
And mussels in some creamy sauce and wine is their specialty... 
These came in a set minus the bottle of sparkling lemon juice.... 
It was around 13 pounds if not mistaken... 
Our walking resumed after the light break.... 
Walking here and there with Aaron's directions... he has been here before... 
He always like to take us to markets....
Food and souvenirs at every corner...
But we did not buy anything.... at all... just look see....
And from the market, we walked uphill to a place called Circus... 
 My girl did a "performance" when we reached there... it was a upheaval walk for me..
I thought of doing the same like the others here... lazing around...
And the background is the Circus cos the houses are "curved" like in a circus tent... 
Our Bath for the day.... 
Back to Cardiff for the third night....
And the next day we left for London....

  1. Cooling air inside? That's new! Usually there, it is nice and cool outside...or cold even but stuffy and hot inside. They do not need air conditioning, not like here.

  4. I love YOU behind this cute pink cart of flowers! I could not figure out why it was called the Circus, and you told me before I even had to ask! The steps on the river are my favorite today, I have never seen anything like this! You are so strong to walk this much; this will also build up your strength! I see your daughter has met the queen!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
