Ended another long haul flight.
Stepped out the plane, i shivered.
O.M.G.. i am not joking that i overestimated myself. My extra fats didn't perform well and I WAS FREAKING COLD !!!!! ....
Welcome to Heathrow Airport!!! WOOO~~~HOOO~~~~
The airport is huge.
We walked quite a distance for luggage collection. Next, we proceed to Bristol by coach.
The best way to get to Bristol from Heathrow Airport will be by coach. The coach service under National Express between Heathrow Airport and Bristol runs 11 times /day with the first Bus starting at 00:30 and the last bus is at 23:15.
To avoid hassle, it is always better if you can BOOK here in advance and travel at off-peak times after 09:00. A return fare cost from 40.80 GBP. Bristol is 105 miles (169.05Km) from Heathrow Airport and the journey time on the Bus will take about 2hr 30min.
I had a soundly nap during the trip;)
Reached Bristol !
Look at the dog, such a KEAT *strong in Hokkien* and fat dog. Well, the pets really do need more fats for winter and honestly, it was FREAKING COLD !!!!
I finger crossed hoping my Battery Boy need not to travel during winter , i really can't imagine how big he can get and how am i going to drag him out with his extraordinary weight .
HERE.. please allow me to share you a photo of my cute fatty Boy.
Let's just forget about how Battery Boy will look like if he happen to be in winter country.
THIS!!!!!! THE ROYAL MAIL!! WOHOOOOO!!!!!!
FINALLY!!!!! I think the human beings around me at that moment must be really amazed with my extreme excitement towards this Royal Mail cast iron pillar box! I was just so getting used to see it in much smaller size.
DAY 1 in Bristol
Time difference between Malaysia and UK is:-8:0 hours. Malaysia is 8:0 hours ahead of UK. That means when it is 8:00 am in London UK, it is 4:00 pm in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Woke up in the morning, the skies was gloomy.
But, i wasn't, at all.
Thanks to UNIQLO .This Light Weight Down Hooded Coat could probably the most functional coat i ever brought over for that trip! It is so soft and light in weight and it is so easy to be pack into the luggage without taking much space.
If you are traveling now during the winter season, GET IT HERE.
I got my very first proper Italian breakfast at Rosemarino.

My cravings for a good Italian breakfast fixed!
We were then headed to the Cabot Circus.
Cabot Circus is a shopping centre in Bristol.There are over 120 shops , 2 department stores, restaurants, cafes, cinema, golf centre, and etc. We took an Uber service to here. The nearest railway station is Bristol Temple Meads. It can be reached by bus, taxi or even on foot.
Christmas Market is just across the Cabot Circus.
THIS IS SOOOO MY THING!!!! The lightings and the colourful christmas decoration is so ON!!!!
I LIKE !
Look at those giant cookies! Those are my fats contributors!
Something that i need to highlight here: MULLED WINE
Mulled Wine is a beverage of European origins usually made with red wine along with various mulling spices and sometimes raisins. It is served hot or warm and is alcoholic, although there are non-alcoholic versions of mulled wine. We can normally get it during Christmas or Halloween.
It is perfect for winter! My all time warmer during the trip.
I am not a fans of HOT
However, this huge footlong super duper chewy sausage sandwich made me addicted to it. I WANT TO EAT IT NOW SO BADLY..... :(
A Hot Sausage Sandwich stall can be so catchy....
Malaysia ~ oh Malaysia~~

You’ll easily find THE STABLE right in the heart of the city, on Bristol’s Harbourside.
The Stable on Bristol's Harbourside proudly serves award-winning pizzas and over 60 varieties of cider. They are family friendly and open everyday from 11am-midnight. All their pizzas are lovingly handmade onsite in their beautiful Cathedral to Cider.
This place is a must go for those who love CIDER. They have more cider than you can shake your tail feather at. Everything is fresh and organic.
The ciders were served before food.
Personally, i am not into cider. Thus, i may not be a suitable person to comment on their ciders. Reviews are good thou. Try it since they claimed they are the expert in cider ;)
OH ! BUT I AM AN EXPERT IN FOOD.
PIZZA IS GOOD! yummmmm~~
THE AVONMOUTH ANGLER
As for the PIE ... er.. forget it...
THE STEAK OUT
I dislike the pie. Totally regret with why didn't I go for a different flavor pizza instead since they claimed to be an expert for pizza too.
I HATE YOU PIE... make me no space for dessert...
THE MILK THISTLE
*THE HIDDEN GEM IN BRISTOL*
Quay Head House Colston Avenue Bristol BS1 1EB United Kingdom
+44 117 929 4429
AN AWESOME SPEAK EASY BAR.
This is definitely a place that i want to review it so bad but don't want anyone else to know about this amazingly little find!!!
The Milk Thistle is a prohibition bar hidden in the centre of town and it is just what the doctor ordered.
Tom is the legend of a barman who make drinks that would normally blow your head off when he was just mixing up with a cheap mixer and it just work so so well with their amazing recipes! It's a great place to impress someone *I GOT IMPRESSED*
The smaller groups the better as it's not a large space downstairs . The 5 of us were comfortably fitted into the cozy corner. I didn't want to leave until i have to.
Headed back for a good sleep after all those great cocktails.
It was a great great night.
*Stay tuned for the NEXT*
