My First Dinner In Aberdeen

IT WAS 6 DEGREES... in the evening, my body is definitely undergoing a big change of weather, from hot sunny weather to chilly cold.  When it is cold, I get hungry super fast and anything simple will taste super good for me and him... LOL...

Took out the curry vegetarian paste brought from Ipoh, chop-chop all the vegetables I found in the fridge and a enormous dish is whooped up!  Shared half of the portion with my son's neighbour and we finished the remaining portion.  Marinated some chicken drumsticks and wings for a couple of hours and our dinner is done.
Two dishes for our dinner... 

My first meal in Aberdeen....

A Long Flight To Aberdeen By KLM

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY..

I took a long flight all the way from Ipoh to Aberdeen ALONE, all by myself... Am I clever?  Says who?? LOL... Nothing great but for me, I think I have achieved a milestone.  LOL.. More to come after travelling alone for the first time, the ice is broken.... finally.

From Ipoh to the KLIA, it took nearly 4 hours to reach due to the jam in the evening, thank God I started out early and I reached the airport half an hour before the counter is opened. Just nice to settle down and then checked in my big luggage.  Went to the premier lounge to have a light dinner and waited for another hour before boarding time.  Up on the plane, I spent my time watching two movies, most of the time, my eyes were closing and I guess the movies were watching me instead.  Food on flight was not to my taste as usual, not their fault but mine, of course... never like to eat the main meals on board except for the cakes or ice cream.  LOL..

Fast forward, after 12 hours of flight from KL to Amsterdam on transit then to Aberdeen, I arrived safely, Thank God for journey mercies and feeling super hungry by then!

The airport was under renovation... and I think I was the first one non EU to come out.. 
How did I know that?
Cos my bag was the first one to come out from the belt! LOL..
From the airport to where hungry tummies go.... 
It is called Frankie And Benny's..
We were the early birds... 
By the time we left, all the booths were occupied... 
We had Spaghetti with Meatballs...
Yes, I could finish all that!
And sweet potato fries... 
There goes my waistline!
Alright, we actually shared this set... 
Must leave some space for dinner!
My first meal in Aberdeen...
Glad to be here again!

A Visit To Design Village, Penang

DESIGNER VILLAGE..

Or is it Design Village?  Anyway, on another different trip to Penang, we stopped by at Batu Maung.  We have to use the second bridge to come here.  It was very quiet on a weekday, smooth drive and also window shopping without any hassle.  Oh, I ended up buying a pair of Levi shorts for 70%, just a piece and that is it.  I can be very frugal at times!  LOL...
At then entrance to Design Village, so it is called... 
Something similar to Factory Outlets... 
This is my first time visiting here... 
Still lots of places to unwrap, it seems... 
See quiet it is.... no rush, no hassle... 
Will pick up during the school holidays.. 
Meanwhile, it is pretty good and peaceful for us to walk around... 
We had a late lunch in Penang... Sungai Nibong... 
This is one of the best Koay Teow Th'ng... 
A bit different from those I have eaten... 
Any style will do as long as it is Koay Teow Thng!
