Asians and Bacon Make Everything Better

I didn't think I'd enjoy visiting Glasgow, but I was wrong because I really had fun there. I booked a flight and was satisfied with British Airways’ service and food. I asked my friend who I have not seen for years to pick me up at the airport and look for a hotel for me. I was happy with his choice of accommodation, because Ibis Hotel is conveniently located in Central Glasgow. I was able to save some money since the hotel is just a few minutes away from various tourist destinations, restaurants, shops and even the Genting Casino Glasgow, so there’s absolutely no need to spend money on a cab or a bus just to get there. The Genting Casino Glasgow has many choices in games such as Blackjack, Baccarat, American Roulette, and Electronic Roulette. The only problem I had was finding appropriate clothes to wear, so I only spent three nights playing at the casino. 

It was such a bummer that fancy casinos have a dress code. I was glad a friend introduced me to, an online casino. Now I can play Blackjack and European Roulette all night wearing just a simple shirt and shorts. I would rather play games on this casino site, and spend my winnings on traveling and shopping instead of buying a formal outfit for a night at a land-based casino. Glasgow seems to have rubbed off its magic on me because I took home double of what I spent when I joined the casino tournament at PartyCasino. My jealous friend said I had “beginner’s luck” because he had been playing for almost a year now and never won any tournaments. Well, I guess my lucky shorts won me that game then. 

Now that I have more money to spend on my holiday in Glasgow, I was able to tour the city and see some of its beautiful attractions such as the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, Titan Clydebank, St. Andrew’s Cathedral, and The Tall Ship. For an “out-of-this-world” experience, make sure to visit the Glasgow Science Centre, where there are many fascinating things to see, like “The Sky Tonight”—a live star show, and “Shiny Time”. The planetarium was my favorite place in the Science Centre because it feels somewhat relaxing to stare at the star-studded sky. 

Speaking of relaxation, my friend and I enjoyed a cup of tea at the Willow Tea Rooms. It was the perfect refuge after a tiring day of sightseeing. We felt like we were back in time because of the tea room’s art deco design. Aside from their wide selection of teas, Willow Tea Rooms also has a restaurant called Anne’s Kitchen, which serves sandwiches and goodies. Their meringues were simply to-die-for. I emailed my friend from Glasgow recently to send me some meringues this Christmas season. I just hope he sends me a bunch so I can munch on those sweet goodies while playing my favorite games online.

Hi there. Feel free to comment, but keep this in mind:
This is a happy place, lets keep it that way, together. In this day and age of spam and idiots, I need to check every comment before it gets published. If it's now 2013, odds are I'm on a tropical beach somewhere in South East Asia, or possibly checking out some abandoned Soviet-era architecture in Eastern Europe, and maybe your comment won't appear for some time. But leave one anyway! If you have a personal message for me, I won't publish the comment, so feel free to submit it here. Thanks for checking out 6000TIMES, and have a nice day.
