We were supposed to leave for Scotland at a 11.15am flight. Everything was perfect. We left the house at 8am, took a taxi to the airport, arrived & checked in 1 hour and 30 mins ahead of time.
But we somehow still managed to miss our flight.
Looking back now, it is really really very funny.
We missed our flight not because of some paranormal activity or a catastrophe that was totally our of control, neither was it the fault of any other human because of any misdirection of the sort.
We all just plainly forgot to look at our watches and continue jabbering away with ourselves. We could have talked to 3pm and never even realised time flew by. LOOOL!!!!
But this careless mistake pushed everyone into panic gear.
Everyone got very upset (obviously!)
Weird photo moment was despite the stress everyone still had time to pose 'upset photos' for the camera. HAHAHAHAHAAHA!
Therefore,on the very same day, we ended up booking train tickets to Scotland at 11.45pm from London. We had to forfeit a whole day's car rental, one way plane tickets & and one night hotel's stay.
My mother would bitch slap me kau kau if she found out about all this.
Taking the bus wasn't too bad albeit extremely tiring. We stopped at Buchanan bus station in Glasgow where we got our car. And since we had lost one whole day's worth we had to start on our journey immediately!! This meant being in our smelly clothes for 2 days in a row. Eww.
Glasgow didn't have anything much, it was just a city with very huge, dark dirty buildings. But upon driving out of the city with our rented car we finally got to see Scotland's famous scenery for ourselves!!!
Lots & lots of sheeeeeeeeeeeppp!!
Unfortunately, it my haste to take photos of the sheep I dropped Suwen's scarf into goey fresh mud. Sorry darling!!! Luckily she brought two. But the next day she dropped that into mud too. LOL!!!
Our plan was to reach Inverness by evening, but we were all starving so we stopped by at a tiny village called 'Lass' for lunch.
In this town, I saw a real live Shetland pony alone in a fenced field. It was sooo adorable!!
Mr.Pony took an unusual liking to Sam.
Or should I say Sam's coat. LOL!!
The pony somehow started chewing on her M & S coat! God, Sammie was super pissed.
"Cibai you stupid pony!!"
We ate lunch in this small hotel. So expensiveee!! T_T
A real fireplace!! Finally! i'm si beh sick of seeing fake ones.
Please excuse my fucking scary face. this is from sleeping only 3 hours a day.
Aiyo, I forgot to take a picture of a horny ang mo uncle in the same restaurant who had a thing for Melvyn. He suddenly went up and ask us, " can I have a picture of you two?" (But I swear, I saw him glancing at Mel the whole time I was eating lunch)
More gorgeous Scotland scenery:
We later stopped at Fort William to view the Loch Lomond and Ben Nevis. But because it was such a foggy day we could not see the Ben Nevis mountain which was such a waste!!! Ben Nevis is apparently the tallest mountain in the UK.
