“Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose”. ~From the television show The Wonder Years
This morning, most of my stuffs have been collected by the shipping company to be shipped to Malaysia. i don’t have much left with me here. It is sad seeing my almost-empty-but-very-messy room which indicates that my journey here has almost come to an end. The walls of my room once full of pictures, now have nothing on it. The realization hits me hard, I really am going home…huhu… 🙁
Anyway, I’ve told myself that b4 going home, I MUST go to Loch Ness. You know, the lake where people claimed to see a monster called Nessie..ring a bell?.. huhu.. Anyhow, because of the monster thingy, Loch Ness has become one of the main attractions of Scotland ever since which was why I really feel like going there….
Thanks to K Linda, Cidud and Eby for making my dream come true. We decided to rent a car on the 27th and 28th August 2008. On the 27th, we went to various places in and nearby Edinburgh starting with Livingston Designer Outlet to shop for my family. After spending almost 4 hours in the mall and hundreds of pounds, we continue our journey to Portobello Beach. Here I took loads of picture especially of Eby and Cidud jumping around and I tell you, it was hilarious..hehe… i will upload some of the shots taken in my friendster and fotopage (LATER..). After cam whoring in Portobello, we went to K Lily’s place and have our dinner there. At 8pm, we rushed to Fountainpark to catch the final show of Hellboy for that day at 8.20 pm. Luckily we managed to arrived there on time and after the movie, Cidud and Eby drove us home around 11pm. K Linda and I were very exhausted and already sounded asleep before midnite.
As early as 5.20 am the next morning, both of us were already getting ready to go to our Loch Ness road trip. I called Cidud to wake him and eby up. K Linda prepared the fried rice and I took my bath and checked my camera. At around 6.30 Cidud and Eby arrived at High Riggs and pick us up.
We didn’t really have anything in mind on where to go or where to stop. We just stopped whenever we saw beautiful sceneries and castles. Our first stop was the Loch Ness. We had our breakfast there and took a lot of pictures (which will be uploaded in Fotopage later). Next we stopped at Urquhart Castle (only from outside..huhu), Fort Augustus, Inverlochy castle, Stirling castle and few other places and lochs in between. We were not aware of their names but the sceneries were really breathtaking. I ‘oohh’ and ‘aahh’ all the way from the start of our journey until we were back on motorway.
I enjoyed every second of the trip even though we had to rush so that we could arrive in edinburgh before dark. I really wish I had more time to explore the Highland and not rushing like we did, but nevertheless, I really enjoyed the trip. Again, many thanks to K Linda, Cidud and Eby for putting up with my ngade-ngadeness throughout our two days together. I really gonna miss those days and thank God I have more than 600 pictures of us and all the places to remember them by… 🙂
