Scotland

July 4, 2009 in UK

Hmmm. I kinda ran out of pictures on Japan. Here are many many big pictures for you from Edinburgh!

edinburgh

Edinburgh is a beautiful city! I loooooove!!! Very very Goth. And there are plenty of Goth shops and people dressing up Goth everywhere!

Just have to excuse my atrocious ensemble a bit throughout this entry though i normally don’t pair my outfits liddat but it was really too cold.

edinburgh1

Some free tour thing. Basically it is a 3-hour walking tour where they bring you around, tell you stories (mostly gruesome stories about tortured prisoners and ghost, didn’t think so grimly about a city so beautiful as Edinburgh), and… erm, that’s it.

In the end you are supposed to tip them la. But Vene and i escaped half way so we didn’t have to pay. Very mean hor. But the tour guide was really boring so…

Yea.

edinburgh13

This is taken outside where we stayed. We stayed in a holiday apartment. I think each of us paid about 30 quid a night, very nice place, clean and comfy.

But apparently it is one of the most haunted place in Edinburgh, because every 10PM sharp at night (the sun hadn’t even set then), there will be a group of people from the Ghost Tour gathering up right outside our apartment and tell ghost stories. FML.

Very beautiful, but a bit wasted because can see some new construction going on in the city. Spoiled the view a bit.

My bikini tee from Supre.

edinburgh17

Beautiful hor. We wanted to climb Arthur’s Seat too, where we get 10X nicer view but we reckoned we might die half way up the hill, of cold, of thirst, of a broken shoe strap, of melted make-up, of whatever bimbotic or princessy reasons we could think of, so we decided against it.

  30. I love love love Edinburgh too!

    Just a random funny story, I too took the Ghost Tour, and about 15 minutes into the tour, the tour guide brought us outside the church, which used to be a graveyard, then he babbled on for a while, then told us, that we are not moving on the the undergrounds of Edinburgh, then we heard a large PLOOP! and a woman fainted! =O.

    Then while everyone was calling the ambulance and all, my boyfriend headed towards me, and passed out too! FML!

    *Maybe the story wasn’t too awesome in words, but imagine on a ghost tour, and people starting passing out. Wtf right.

    Seriously, tell me if you ever come to Scandinavia! :D

    I want to hear more of Japan!

  31. Great bunch of pics. Reminds me of the last time I was in Edinburgh. It looks like you had a great time.

    Dear Author of this blog,
    From my brief reading of ur post recently, as a non malaysian, I wld like to suggest u shld be chased away fr ur own country, Malaysia. U complain abt idea why foreigner love ur country & y some proud Malaysian (unlike u) miss to come home when they r away. U mentioned abt politics & weather, how on earth u shld know other countries’ flaw & predicament if u only been there for 2-3 weeks, with adequate pocket money & stay in the hotel/motel/friend’s around the city. If im not mistaken, people travel ard the world, bring themselves as a reprsentative of whr they are from, not dissing their homeland.
    U shld be proud of ur origins & step back to reality that u are Malaysian. Ur Asian eyes are meant to be black no matter how u keep changing those colorful lenses. No matter how good ur english, it doesnt mean ur iQ say the same. Your nipple will not be pink no matter how u try to be what u wanted to be. Now u wish u belong to other country, u wish u are Japanese eating raw food everyday, & my dear, Im afraid 1 day u wish ur mother is soemone else & not the one who actually give birth to u and look after u. U such a disgrace to ur own country, to ur own race (I believe is Chinese isn’t it?) & to urself for being perplexitively of what is Travel experience & what is Ignorant. But 1 thing I salute u, at least u recognize u are a bimbo indeed.
    I hope u wake up and come down to earth again (if u still consider “earth” is the planet u shld stay)

    • Irene Yeo says:

      Wow. As a Singaporean, I must say this kind Malaysian mentality is common nowdays. Yep, they never grateful with what they have unlike us. We are small and yet we pround of being Kiasu Singaporean and came from very tiny island. Pfftt talk about politics, & government rules bla blah blah, at least chewing gum are allowed in their country. However, we proud that the rules made Singapore unique & people became very vigilance once they stepped into our tiny land. I also wonder why this cheesy blogger have not migrate & change her nationality to other country yet, since she dislike her own country so much.

      • Ms Irene, could you provide concrete proof that this kind of “mentality” is common in Malaysia?

        If you could, kudos for proving yourself. If you can’t (I have a gut feeling you won’t) I hope you would ensure you have proof to back up your claims in the future.

        As for your questions for Ringo, I’ll leave that for her to answer if she deems it worth answering.

      • Excuse me Irene Yeo, would you like to rephrase your highly offensive sentence; “this kind Malaysian mentality is common nowdays”

        How old are you anyways, to pass such judgement ?
        IMO, you sound like a 12 year old passing blame just to play the devil’s advocate. That was a sweeping judgement made and not in anyway fair to the other Malaysians. Cheesie’s own choice to travel wherever and whenever she likes, I’m afraid, is her own perrogative.

        And I’m glad to know that you all are proud of coming from a tiny island, and are kiasu, and “very vigilance”, GOOD FOR YOU. Clap clap, I’m sure all of us here are insanely ecstatic for you.

        BTW, kindly reshuffle your thoughts and attend an English grammar class, I’m sure they are scattered everywhere in your little island. But wait, aren’t you Singaporeans supposed to be highly English savvy ?

        Tsk, I apologize, it appears that I have made the exact same mistake as you; making a sweeping statement.

        Obviously, there are a few exemptions.

        Have a good day.

  46. More about UK please.
    I have fond memories of UK as well.
    I’m super excited now that my photo of purple statue in York is short-listed for The Star photo contest.
