Homely Exotic Malaysian Food In Aberdeen

MARY'S KITCHEN IN ABERDEEN...

My friend, Mary opens a AirBnB house in Aberdeen.  Besides being an owner, she does everything that needs to be done, from A to Z...  She cleans, she cooks, she shops, she manages.... oh my goodness, you name it, she does it!  She is such a capable lady, multi-tasking in all her chores daily, phewwww... just thinking about what she does each day already tires me down, what's more having to do them in reality!  Salute you, Madam!! 

Not only she is energetic, enterprising... she is also a very generous owner and hostess.  She makes sure her guests are well fed, guests such as Me.. LOL... and I can never get enough of her food.  Why?  Cos she serves Malaysian food!  I know I can count on her whenever I feel like eating Chicken Rice, Nasi Lemak, Roti Canai and even Satay is included in her menu.  My goodness... what else can I say?
Her homely Brentwood Villa... 
A homely feeling away from home... 
Some Malaysian locals who love to come by here for the homely and homecooked food.. 
Greece peanuts were served.... 
Her souvenir from Greece when she went for holidays recently... 
For starters, we have grilled chicken satays!!  
Her special Roti Canai made from scratch... no joke... 
Eaten with curry chicken.... 
I must say her Roti Canai suits me best cos less oil and crispy at the sides...
Her version of Chinese dumplings also made from scratch... 
Vegetable soup noodles with roasted pork....
What more can I ask?
Fried chicken.... 
Fried Prawn Fritters...
And know what???
I forgot to take another two main meals and desserts too!
Chicken rice and Nasi Lemak, Lemon Cake etc etc... 
I guess I was too hungry after all.... !

Anyway, I worry not, there are still many days ahead that I would be tasting her other special Malaysian food..LOL...   Below is a short excerpt from her website Brentwood Villa.

Brentwood Villa is a beautiful traditional Aberdeen detached villa which offers quality accommodation at an affordable price. We serve a delightful and generous breakfast of your choice - English, Scottish, Continental or Malaysian breakfast. You will also get to taste some of our special home bakes during your stay. Exotic Malaysian food is available for order in the afternoon and evening by request.  Brentwood Villa is right across the main entrance of Aberdeen University. It’s the closest B&B to the university, about a minute walk away.

A Visit To Hazelhead Park When The Sun Is Up

SUNNY EVENING....
After the church service, it was nearly 5pm and when we were walking to our car, the sun was UP!!  Wasting no time, Aaron suggested that we should make use of the sunny sky to go to the park, it is a rare opportunity to see the sun in the evening... though the weather was still cold, psychologically, it warms us up.  And off we went to Hazelhead Park.....
At the entrance.... 
The fall with different kinds of color on the trees.... 
Too bad my camera did not do justice to the nature park... 
Anyway, we ended up taking lots of pictures on ourselves instead of the park... LOL.. 
Some kind of berry tree?
Yes, my many pictures in the park... endless!
Me with the young people...the students from the Universities here... 
They make me feel young too!
My kids for the day!!
 One is from Hong Kong and another from Sibu.... 
 And of course, I must not lose out on my signature pose!!  LOL...
My hands wide poses... as usual...
My hands wide pose!
Receiving Blessings pose... 
I like this one too.. 
that's the reason for a double posting here... 
LOL...

First Sunday To Church In Aberdeen

SECOND DAY OF ABERDEEN... It was a Sunday and we set out earlier to town before church service starts at 3pm.  Aaron took me to the Chinese section because the English pastor would be there to deliver a sermon.  The streets of the city was very quiet on this day, Aberdeen always remind me of Ipoh, in terms of traffic.  The people here are quite slow paced like in Ipoh, no jams on the roads whether it is weekdays or weekends.  Slow and steady, people...

As usual, I wrapped myself up from top to bottom, against the cold outside.  Scarfs plays an important role to keep our neck and chest warm, besides that a good pair of warm, furry and comfortable shoes help a lot too.  Weather is very unpredictable.... in the morning, it was very cloudy and by sunny when our church service was over at 4pm. 

Let's go....
Time to do a leap before setting out... 
Aquatics Centre where the workouts are... 
At the city junction... 
One is still a church whereby one turned into a pub..
Wonder why... 
The hotel we stayed when we visited Aberdeen the first time a few years ago... 
A cup of hot chocolate and a fresh warm chocolate croissant after a long walk... 
Window shopping at UNION Square before it is time to leave for church...
