A Long Flight To Aberdeen By KLM

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY..

I took a long flight all the way from Ipoh to Aberdeen ALONE, all by myself... Am I clever?  Says who?? LOL... Nothing great but for me, I think I have achieved a milestone.  LOL.. More to come after travelling alone for the first time, the ice is broken.... finally.

From Ipoh to the KLIA, it took nearly 4 hours to reach due to the jam in the evening, thank God I started out early and I reached the airport half an hour before the counter is opened. Just nice to settle down and then checked in my big luggage.  Went to the premier lounge to have a light dinner and waited for another hour before boarding time.  Up on the plane, I spent my time watching two movies, most of the time, my eyes were closing and I guess the movies were watching me instead.  Food on flight was not to my taste as usual, not their fault but mine, of course... never like to eat the main meals on board except for the cakes or ice cream.  LOL..

Fast forward, after 12 hours of flight from KL to Amsterdam on transit then to Aberdeen, I arrived safely, Thank God for journey mercies and feeling super hungry by then!

The airport was under renovation... and I think I was the first one non EU to come out.. 
How did I know that?
Cos my bag was the first one to come out from the belt! LOL..
From the airport to where hungry tummies go.... 
It is called Frankie And Benny's..
We were the early birds... 
By the time we left, all the booths were occupied... 
We had Spaghetti with Meatballs...
Yes, I could finish all that!
And sweet potato fries... 
There goes my waistline!
Alright, we actually shared this set... 
Must leave some space for dinner!
My first meal in Aberdeen...
Glad to be here again!

  3. I have never seen you go anywhere alone. Glad everything went well. You are so right about airplane food! You are so bundled up, is it cold there? Do you have real cold winters? The spaghetti and meatballs look so good! You have the most beautiful big smile, you just light up your blog!

  10. I am just the poosite. I always enjoyed the free food on the planes as I am a greedy glutton.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
