Scottish Highland and Loch Ness

July 23, 2009 in UK

Tons of beautiful pictures from Scotland. But this was the most torturing day for us.

We joined a day tour by to the highlands, Glencoe and Lochness. We paid about £42 each which i think is great if you are lazy to drive. But the entire journey was just quite the beh tahan.

lochness3 by you.


The scenery was amazing all the way up the highlands, but we just dozed off only. Still suffering from jet lag, we had to put up with 7 or so hours drive in the bus what turf.

Scotland is like the greenest place i’ve ever been to in my life. It’s just vast, lush green all the way.

Vene saw a Nessie lol.


Honestly right, i think the lake is ovverated lo. I mean, all you see is some sticker nessies stuck on the boat windows and water and some mountains lo. And we almost froze to death on the deck. And it’s £1o leh. You can skip this ride and just buy a postcard la really.

Ok you have seen enough pretty scenery now it’s time for some ugly. So we went to this waterfall right, and i almost stepped on this bloody thingie:

Slug. FML.

lochness23 by you.


Got a fatter one. FML 2x.

We only reached Edinburgh at night and it felt like we had traveled through space and time, fought a war with Chubaka and giant Nessie and back. Aih.

And all we wanted to do was sleep. FOL.

But because we only had one last day left in Edinburgh, we die die also dragged our ass out to the city to have a pint of pear cider.

And that was the first time we saw Edinburgh in (near) dark. We normally slept before 10PM and it was still completely bright.


Yellow taxi! ^^


Just rained lo. Damn cold.





This is the street where we stayed. Where the ghost tour came every night and told creepy stories FML.

Anyway. End of Scotland.

I have no idea where i wanna go next yet. I’m pretty much done with all the places i can afford and want to go at the moment.

Tell me your favorite place in this world that you have visited/would like to visit?

  2. Lisa Cheah says:

    I saw your shoes, some people can pull off anything. You’re one of them. 🙂

    You should come to Scandinavia!
    Tell me if you do!

    If there is one place I would love to visit, it would be, Italy. *runs to check for cheap tickets online.
    And of course, if I were to go back, it’s a close call between Ireland and Scotland. I love those 2 countries! Love!

    • cheesie says:

      Besides you, I actually have a (kinda sorta, not really) friend in Scandinavia!!!

      No la the shoe, really quite tragic one. i didn’t bring anything else >_< Oooh i didn't get to go ireland i'd reeeeeeally love to!!!

      • Lisa Cheah says:

        Technically, I don’t live in the awesome part of Norway.
        I live slightly off Oslo, and the only thing they are famous for, is the expensive prices.

        But we can definitely take the train! to “the most beautiful scenery in the world”

        *PAUSE : I sound like I am going traveling with you. Haha!

        But, let’s go Ireland, I fly Ryanair last time for like, almost nothing at all. And its ridiculously awesome! 😀

        • cheesie says:

          Wa shiok!!!! is it like, cold now? 💡

          • Lisa Cheah says:

            Norway? Its about 20 today. So, its good. Perfect.
            Come in 2 weeks, and you are invited to my Bday too!

            We were lucky in Ireland, we had a few days there, and it didn’t rain at all. People say it rains a lot. But, I think the temperature never went below 23. 🙂

            And you have never seen a sale, like Ireland. 🙂
            And I have seen a lot of sales, even NY didn’t beat it. 😀

          • cheesie says:

            What! Never below 23? 😯

            Anyway i wanna go Norway see M2M lol

  3. Lisa Cheah says:

    You’re not here to see me? 🙁 😛

    M2M is like. Gone now, but they have loads of concerts around the summertime!
    Well, they were born in Lørenskog, which is pretty much around the corner.

    You can even see Hilton, where Paris Hilton’s ancestors were from, also around the corner. 🙂

  5. xueni says:

    haven been to many countries;

    China (school immersion trip);
    Malaysia + Genting (quite a few times last time, cause it’s the nearest to Singapore; & that was when dad had the car.)

    was hoping to do Japan when i was younger, cause of those kawaii stuffs & sushi + ramen + ubon. (:
    but seems kind of expensive;
    then hoping to go Korea, cause korean drama are dramatic & funny.
    but i cant really stand eating cold, hot kimchi everyday.

    then hope to go Taiwan, cause they speak Chinese & it’s a food + shopping heaven!
    out of Asia, i think i will like to take a look around London or Paris or New York; cause they seem so beautiful after you blog about it. (:

    hah; shall be rich when i grow up!! 😀
    then i can travel, learn & have fun.

    *envy Cheesie!

  6. shchoy says:

    There’s one question i have been pondering for a long time….
    And that is……

    Where do you get all the mooolah to go for these trips?
    I am really curious…

    Advert Sponsors? Honest working money?
    Daddy’s money? perhaps… Sugar Daddy’s? 😉

    • cheesie says:

      Haven’t found any daddy/sugar daddy. You wanna be mine?

      • shchoy says:

        Ahhh… Why not…

        I will bring you to good mamak stalls around Klang Valley..

        I may even throw in a couple of trips for us here and there!
        disclamer: provided if Air-asia got discount. (RM1.99)

        If you want a flashy transport, i will go source for a “kap chai” with some christmas lights attached to it. 😉

  7. zachary says:

  8. Anewxoxo says:

  9. christo says:

    chey of course your fav would be japan la, even Rin was derived from Ringo (in case you forgotten btw :P) and Ringo is Apple in Japan, hence the apple of the eye 😉

  10. Jess says:

    Cinque Terre- Italy

    so far the best place that I’ve been. seriously the prettiest place everrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

  11. axiao says:

    Hi Cheesie,

    Just wanna to say I enjoy ur travel story very much. May I ask how much u spent for the trip to UK? (minus ur shopping of course) Just give a rough estimation..thanks..

  12. JD says:

    Haha, coincidentally I am planning to blog about the top 10 places I want to go. Hmm….but first on my mind right now is Bora-Bora! Then Santorini in Greece, Taiwan, Hokkaido, Halong Bay, HK (yeah, never been to HK before), Positano in Italy, Macchu Picchu and last but not least Hawaii!

    • cheesie says:


      • Meg says:

        Don’t get caught in the storms in Santorini during late September. I did, and it costs me additional 350 pounds to get back to UK. 250 to change my flight and 100 pounds for an additional ferry back to Athens >< And oh, take the island hopping on, Myokonos (to me) might be better than Santorini.

        Get Virgin Galactic to sponsor you a trip to the outer space! If i got the moolah, i would go on it. I’ve been to loads of the ones on earth already, and frankly speaking, getting bored.

        Being in the first few rows at Times Square during New Year in new york was awesome! And Ibiza!

        • Meg says:

          lol, i was half expecting to see a uk flag, and then i just realized in back home lol :):)

          lol typo in the “island hopping one”.

        • JD says:

          Mykonos is also nice, but too bad I didn’t get the chance to island hop when I was there. But still the white houses with blue coloured roof, awesome sight to behold!

      • JD says:

        I went there before during my Uni days…it’s so beautiful…….!!!

  13. Francesca says:

    Europe is so boring -_-

    What’s nice to see in Malaysia? Any recommendations?

  19. WP says:

    Haha, when you first wrote “meh meh” I didn’t get it…then I saw “moo moo” for the other pic…and then only noticed the sheep in the other pic.

    The pics are lovely…the sky so blue!!

    The place I loved the most (as a tourist spot only) is Santorini! (it’s a Greek island, in case you don’t know it 😛 ) It is very very beautiful! But quite “ulu”…for tourists only. (or if you stay there, open a guest house or a restaurant lol) So if you go there you should rent a car, or else you have to walk everywhere, or wait for the bus that doesn’t pass often…

  25. patrick says:

    Hi Cheesie,
    Your travel pics are still the best! You should come to California. It might not be the greatest place in the world, but it’s got to be one of them! What ever you can imagine you can find here. Your photos will be some of your favorite, for sure! Plus, you probably already know some Malaysians that live here, in case you get bored hanging out with me 😛
    BTW- I’ve always been curious how many languages you speak. Do you study languages?

  26. Evelyn says:

  35. cindy khor says:

    when i was in edinburgh, i really did thought of taking the bus ride up to loch ness as the locals said that it was beautiful, but we haven’t got the time, therefore we just tried the 3D lochness experience in one of the edinburgh shop. but it would be great to spot nessie, i love it so much till i bought a necklace of it.

  36. Kynne says:

    Go to Stockholm. Fantastic city. 🙂

  37. Lisa says:

  40. cheesie says:

    Hey Bum, don’t take it the wrong way. I’m merely encouraging people to read through the entries of their interest. 🙂

    Anyway how come u jumped from AUS to MY!!!

    • Bum says:

      Haha I was just playing around lah. See I did that 😛 face after i made that silly reply. Tho i honestly dint c the first bit. heheh.

      • Bum says:

        Oh i geddit, so aussies get the cold shoulder huh.. 😛
        I’ve no idea why its like that. Have been in msia the whole time 🙂

        • cheesie says:

          you know whats funny. just 2 days ago i was playing the mafia game with a bunch of people and it’s always the aussies who got killed or accused of killing. LOL!

      • cheesie says:

        There are loads of other tour companies around, but it was recommended by a friend so we took rabbies. Weird name, though. I suggest a road trip instead of joining a tour though, if you have the time, because it’s dead tiring to sit in the bus for so long.

        Have fun!!

        • Bum says:

          Yeah like rabies the disease or rabbis those jewish religious teachers. wonder what a combination of those two are. Anyway thanks 😀

  41. Bum says:
