Holiday Home Craigh Na Dun, Portree

ONE NIGHT STAY...

After the seafood dinner, our adventure began... Looking for our AirBnB in the dark up the mountains was no joke.  While driving up the hill using the GPS to lead us to the cottage, the signal went off in the middle of nowhere.  No street lights and just the car lights, Aaron managed to maneuver the car safely, yes, credit to the co-pilot beside and two more co-drivers behind the driver himself.  As for yours truly, I was snoozing once again after the heavy dinner.... I could hear voices at the back of my mind though but I was feeling kind of confident, I know we could get through this somehow.... I just have to lay back and closed my eyes.... prayerfully! 

Yes, we made it to the holiday home in the dark!  Upon entering the cottage, we were all mesmerized by the beauty and deco of the cottage called Craigh Na Dun.... someone commented that he would love to stay there for the rest of his life!!  LOL... After choosing our own rooms, (there were 3 this time), we refreshed ourselves.... by then I was wide awake and fresh.... and we had a good time relaxing by the fireplace till our eyes could no longer open....

The next morning, someone woke up early and walked around the area... First of all, all of us were thankful that nothing happened the previous night, our cottage was indeed down a slight slope... phewww... next time we better come during the broad daylight and not when it turns dark....  Other than that, the garden and the surrounding area was indeed very beautiful, just like living in a modern farmhouse, with cows, goats and chickens... just around the neighbourhood...
These greeted us in the morning!
Just like in the books Enid Blyton!
Main door leading into the house... 
Leading to the living hall... 
Living hall...
Master bedroom... 
With attached bathroom...
Two rooms similar to this... 
And a very big kitchen!
The next morning we walked around the area... 
The white cottage is where we stayed for the night... 
If opportunity arises, we would like to come here again.. and again!
With Our faithful Red Babe which faithfully carried us around for hundreds of miles....

  3. How nice! You all book a cottage all for yourself instead of staying at a bed and breakfast place. Did you all light up the fire place yourself? Is it an electrical fire place or is it one that requires fire wood?

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...
