A short visit to a castle

Heard about Kellie's Castle? It's situated near Baru Gajah, Perak. It's about 20 mins drive from Ipoh.

the view from the front. This unfinished castle was built by a Scottish planter, William Kellie Smith since 1915

we paid it a visit last Sunday..

the view from top of the castle... the entrance ticket is RM4 per person

all of us in front of the castle

it was like posing in some historical place at Rome, LOL

with hubby

we climbed to the top of the castle. There's actually nothing much to see in this castle, only those walls and some architecture. A friend said, a nicer way to name it, is Kellie's Castle, in another word, it's actually 'ghost house' =_=

last but not least, a group photo of us!

We then headed to Tanjung Tualang for some nice seafood. Stay tune for the photos!


  1. Hayley,

  2. any ghost story to tell? i'm interested ^^ i nvr visited the place before, mayb should go one day, so that when people ask, i can tell them about it.

  3. I visited that place for my 2010/2011 new year trip down to ipoh. yes it does have a ghost story too... haha

    Its really nice place for photography, but sadly nothing much there to make you stay longer..

    Still its a fun place to visit and pictures :D

  7. If not the mistaken, i heard background story it was dedication from a guy to his loved one & after google confirmed LOL

  8. ADD-ON : If these is "symbolic visit", may it strengthen the strong bond btw both of you -so what's next - Taj Mahal?

    Ok just kidding :)

  9. Many people told me about that place but I haven't been there before. But was it boring?

  12. was it spooky when you were there? didn't know they now charge a fee to visit. i went there about 20 years ago...before anyone did anything to the castle. it looked scary back then.

  13. RM4 to enter the ghost house, hehehehe! I may need to consider going there. hahahah!

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

Hi world! It's been a while! Hope you are doing fine! ;)
Life is busy as usual, and extremely tired lately due to the crazy weather and sick bugs came visited me :( 
Got to sleep soon, just wanna come in here to make my blog a bit alive, haha!
Take care and have a nice week ahead!

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
