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!

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
