The Bay Fish N Chips, Stonehaven, Aberdeen

THE NEXT EVENING WAS A FRIDAY.... Aaron came back earlier than his usual time and took us to Stonehaven, a 15 miles away and a half hour drive from our place.  It is my third time going to Stonehaven and as far as I can remember, the famous joints are The Bay and Auntie Betty's.  

Originally a fishing village built around the High Street, and formerly known as Stonehive, the town has grown to a population of around 11,000. The sense of history, with the impressive ruined fortress of Dunnottar Castle, the awe inspiring views of the sea and harbour, the friendliness of the local people, combine to make Stonehaven  special.  Stonehaven is the main county town of Kincardineshire and the Mearns, although, due to Local Government changes, the town now lies within Aberdeenshire.  In August 2010, Stonehaven was voted the best seaside town in Scotland in a survey carried out by the Bank of Scotland which looked at the quality of life in coastal towns throughout the country, looking at factors such as crime rates, weather, property prices and earnings.

I normally don't like the normal Fish n Chips cos the fish Are usually frozen.  But I have second thoughts when I tasted The Bay Fish n Chips, the fish is so fresh and succulent.  My girl who is rather fussy on food, told her brother that we must come here here again for their Fish!!  And of course, it includes their homemade ice cream too!
The Bay is our first stop!
Just look at the long queue... 
Two lines and someone need to queue up for the famous Fish n Chips, right!
While waiting, we walked around.....
Ample parking for the locals and tourists....
Along the beach....
Stonehaven is another one of the famous beach spots....
A relaxing place to chill out.....How I wish... 

Yes, wishing Labby is here strolling too....
Outside the Auntie Betty's ice cream shop....
And our enormous fish n chips!
Two scoops of rum n raisin and diam something....
Thanks Aaron for waiting and getting us our dinner!
We are famished....Let's dig in!!

    That fish and chips place is a good find. Very hard to find restaurants selling fresh fish there, since their SOP is immediately freeze everything.

  8. The traditional fish and chips. Looks good!

    Triple cooked chips were at one point quite readily available in traditional fish and chip shops in London but not so now. I don't know about up North. Unfortunately, polystyrene is still widely used although paper plates and paper food cartons can be seen in fish and chip shops in London including other eateries.

  9. What a lovely place by the beach! I agree that most Fish & Chips used frozen fish and they tasted different.

    Without your glasses, you always looked like Aaron's sister. Now you looked like his loving mama! You look elegant with glasses.

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

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

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 str
