Street Performance At Romans Bath Abbey

ON THE THIRD DAY, Aaron drove to Bath, it was more than an hour drive from Cardiff.  Though the journey took more than one and half hours from Cardiff, Aaron preferred to stay in Cardiff so that we do not have to pack and go from one place to another.  It can be very "stressful" for the mother to leave from one place to another so he rather drive a bit longer to our next destination.  Yes, the place is called Bath... *if I did not come to Wales, I would not have heard of this place before*

Bath is best known for its Roman-built baths, the city became a spa when the Romans built baths and a temple in the valley of the River Avon.  The Romans took advantage of the area's natural hot springs by building the majestic Roman Baths, now a UNESCO heritage site.  Another attraction is the city's elegant Georgian architecture and it is best appreciated on foot.  

And that was exactly what we did when we arrived in Bath... we managed to get a parking near the train station, five hours for around 5 pounds.  From there we walked from one part to another and imagine we have walked for few hours around the town, fully amazed by its historic buildings and houses, all of the same colour.  The town looks so neat and Roman-nic like...
After more than an hour drive from Cardiff, we arrived in Bath.... 
We walked from the train station to the tourist street... 
At the happening place...
Music was in the air along the streets,
First thing, we looked for food, it was almost noon...
The shop which caught our eyes...
Sweet or savoury... hmmm... which one to choose... 
Oh, if we eat here, they will cost a bit more... if we take away, these goodies are cheaper...
We decided to take away, just sat at the bench some footsteps away from the shop....
 
This is the place where the attraction is... Bath Abbey.... 
 A lively piazza which is often filled with musicians and street artists....
Here and there, people everywhere.... 
We joined in the crowd.... taking pictures and listening to the music.... 
Near the Bath's famous spa... 

At the traffic free Abbey Churchyard....
And the two ladies joined in the crowd.. relaxing and listening to 
one handsome artiste with his classical guitar.. yes, I took some video clips....
Too good to miss that.... 
Too many pictures to withhold..... 
We ended up doing some street performance too...
But no one paying us any pennies... LOL.....

  2. Bath? Wowwwww!!!! You people really travelled really very far...go further south to Plymouth - I was there for 3 months...and head to St Ives, Land's End...don't bother going to Stonehenge, just a pile of stones and you are not allowed to go near.

    Oh ya!!! If you can locate it, Sheepstor is the place to go, not far from Plymouth - the burial grounds of the Brookes, the White Rajahs of Sarawak...and the lovely church beside it. So so so privileged to have been there!

  8. I always love the culture and lifestyle in overseas where the folks would laze all day on the public benches!

    Over here, no benches and if there are, some beggars and peddlars would be busy hawking.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
