Our Farewell Home Cooked Dinner In Aberdeen, Scotland

The next morning after our breakfast in Stirling, we had to check out and soon it was time to go back to Aberdeen. Our one week stint has ended.. finally! With the help of GPS, we reached our hotel Jury Inn in Aberdeen in the afternoon.  I was actually feeling very happy to be back in Aberdeen... WHY?

Well, Mary is the reason!  She sent messages in FB while we traveled and I almost jumped with joy when she extended her invitation to her house for dinner  in one of her messages.  She hoped we could make it for dinner...bI quickly replied her message YES, YES without feeling a bit of embarrassment!  (Mary, I was hoping that we could see you again! LOL.... )

Really.... imagine so many days traveling and eating western food, I was actually yearning and craving for  homecooked Chinese food!  Phew... Mary, you know my heart's desire!  LOL...

When we reached her house, she was still preparing her the dishes... but knowing Mary, she is really a fast worker!  In no time, all the dishes were "deliciously served" on the table!
Just look at these!!!
"All these good food for us???" 
Aaron seems to be saying... LOL...
  
Home Made Chicken Rice - Aberdeen style!
Salmon Curry!
This one doesn't need introduction, right?
Oh Me Oh MY!  Really Yummylicious!
A veryWell Balanced Meal with a plate of greens...
After dinner... we were served with .... 
All these Goodies!
Home Made Ang-ku-s!
Mary's BBQ Dumplings! 
What a Scrumptious Meal !!
A picture to remember us by....
  
I believe that SOMEONE GREAT arranged this meeting....
He brought us together...Allowing us to know each other..
Though we are staying thousands of miles apart...
Nothing seems to be impossible...
Mary... Stephen...
Thank you once again for making us feel at home
It is a Great Pleasure to know both of you.... 
Hope we can meet up one day... yes..One Day...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL... 

Purnama Beach Resort, Pangkor

We thought we would be sleeping in these type of chalets when we checked in on Monday. But no, the lobby girl led the way.... passing by here.... and to this.... ....place instead... they looked new to me, thank goodness, only the weather turned us off on the first day, it was Xtremely hot that day and the air con was not working that good... that was why I complained on the 1st day but it was much better on Tuesday... we could stand outside here and have a little chat.... this was the place we stayed for 2 nights... ok lar. . I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
