Awesome Algarve



On the west of Europe surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and nestled tightly against the east coast of Spain, sits a country famous for its beaches and hospitality. Portugal has mature holiday resorts that have, over the years, become perfect tourist traps providing top class holidays and relaxed friendly atmospheres. It's no wonder Portugal is one of the top destinations in the holiday brochure.

Portugal has many resorts and regions that all offer beautiful beaches to bathe on, clean sparkling waters to swim in and wonderful fresh cuisine to taste. So which area do you pick if you want to spend time there? It would depend firstly on how you want to spend your vacation. If you are a culture vulture then the best advice would be to head towards Lisbon where you can soak up scores of sites and historical landmarks. If you are a party animal and want to spend your nights swinging along to the Portuguese vibe, then Areias de Sao Joao will fill your soul with the sound of music.

However if you crave a classic coastal getaway then Algarve holidays could be right up your street. The Algarve has become one of Portugal’s best loved regions and with good reason too. The most southerly region can offer a little taste of everything depending on which resort you stay in. The Moorish capital of Silves is an enchanting little town with a fascinating history including an ancient castle and a cathedral. Peppered with orange and lemon trees this area is great as either a destination or a daytrip. Lagos is also full of history but has a bubbling vibe as well, making it the perfect holiday town for those who love something with a bitoflife. Then there is the stunning Caldas de Monchique, with miles of limestone caves, grottos, rugged cliffs and breathtaking scenery.This is a wonderful area to spend time in, either as a day trip or for a thoroughly restful and relaxing holiday.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
