At Aberdeen and London Heathrow Airport

My Scotland trip posts have finally come to an end... After our scrumptious dinner in Mary's place, we checked-in to Jury Inn once more before leaving for the airport the very next morning.  Jury Inn has been our home for nearly a week and we love the place here very much.  Main reason is that this hotel is is inside the shopping mall building, something like Cititel Hotel in Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur.  Very convenient especially for travelers like us who love eating and shopping at the same time!
Entrance to the Jury Inn
We have "grown" familiar with the front desk people and they with us...
Being the only Asians guests there at that time. :)
So.. we bade our goodbye to Aberdeen...from our car.. LOL....
Perhaps we will come by here again...Let's wait and see... 
With the GPS, we drove to the airport...
While we went to check-in our luggages, Aaron returned the rented car...
From Aberdeen, we flew to London.. 
Aberdeen airport is small and very user friendly... 
You can have a nice cup of hot drink while waiting for the call..
The flight to London takes around one hour plus.. 
Distance almost like flying from Ipoh to Singapore...
I guess we were the only Asians to board British Airways then...
Landed in London Heathrow... we were one of the earliest to reach our boarding hall..
From London ...we flew to Singapore....

Reaching Singapore Changi Airport at around 5pm...
Since it was almost evening, I stayed one night in Singapore...

The next morning I took a morning flight back to IPOH...
Firefly flew me back to IPOH....
Pheww... Finally....
Well... that is Our Trip...
Though it was only a 12 days trip, it seems that we have "covered" a lot...
I am glad that I came... I was hesitating in the beginning... worrying about this and that...
And of course, I relented in the end....
This trip is an "eye opener" for me... to see a small part of the world...
To me, this small part is the biggest event so far... 
So much to discover, so much to "wow" over.... 
No Regrets.. Only Full of Thanks...

  10. There's no place like home, sweet home. The mere thought of the long haul flights puts me off flying - I cannot sleep on board, never mind how many hours. Killing!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
