The Two "Fines" In Edinburgh

It was there in Edinburgh when we were "slashed" with two "fines."  LOL... OK, sorry, I shouldn't use the word "slash"... it reminds me of Malaysian crime awareness in FB...

Back to my story telling... we got our first summon fine from the parking attendant.  My son parked right in front of the guest house and it seems the parking lot belonged to a resident.. (you can actually book a parking place, I think)  Aaron didn't know about it till he saw this fine....
If I am not mistaken, the fine was 30 GBP... 
One man saw my son holding the ticket and asked him..
"Is this your rented car?"
My son nodded...
Then the man said, "Just tear it off... "
They laughed.... 

On the second day in Edinburgh, I couldn't bear the "discomfort" anymore.... My son took me to the hospital but unfortunately they didn't want to see me cos I was not ER case... they referred me to a private practitioner and we had to make an appointment beforehand.
 
To cut the story short, I consulted this doctor and I was prescribed some antibiotics and I had to get them from a pharmacy...At that moment, I really miss Malaysia... at least we do not have to make an appointment with our GP and we do not have to go to the pharmacies to get our medicine....
 15 minutes consultation made my pocket very much lighter.. LOL..
anyway, I am thankful that all is fine now....

  1. They only treat 'dying' ppl urgently. As bad as our medical state here, we still get treated no matter what. LoL! Glad you are okay though so much 'lighter' now.

  2. They should have forgiven him the ticket because he did not know, was only a visitor. Here, you cannot see a doctor unless you have an appointment, then you have to go to the pharmacy to get the medecine. With no appointments, aren't here a lot of people at once and lots of waiting?

  4. No medical insurance, never ever see a doctor abroad. You will have to pay through your nose. Ya...they're very efficient in issuing summonses - for speeding also - watch out for the very slow speed limit when driving through villages/hamlets...and in NZ, cannot go below the speed limit as well. If they say 90, you have to stick to that. I guess we are so much "better off" in many ways here...

  5. aiyah, never mind lah, you are rich tai-tai.. consider you have experienced something unique in Scotland, haha.. yeah, i actually do not like the idea of pre-booked appointment with doctors.. unless it's like regular follow-up, i think when we are sick we want to see the doctor straight away, we can't pre-book our sickness also right?? :D

  13. I think since the rented car has the credit card number, I think in the agreement, they can still charge the credit card for any outstanding fine. So in the end, did your son pay the fine?

    Well, money spent to consult a doctor to get a peace of mind is money well spent. Glad that everything is now ok for you.

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

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...
