Blessings From Aberdeen, Scotland

Aaron flew to Aberdeen on the 19th October, 2014 and he was supposed to work there for ten days...
 
During his seven days in Aberdeen, I was not worried about him at all... I know that he would be well taken care of in a way especially after office hours.  I am so thankful to Steven and Mary Moh who are residing in Aberdeen for welcoming Aaron into their home, he knows he will get to taste special food in their home!
Such a heart warming gathering....
With all the glorious dishes...... 
and all the desserts prepared by Mary.... 
Isn't Aaron Blessed!
Aaron told me that he had a wonderful time with the Moh-s and knowing new friends there...
On his last day in Aberdeen, he was invited to give a sharing in church....
It is indeed an honour and a blessing to share... 
The church is very blessed by this lovely couple...
Thank you, Mr & Mrs Moh...
For "taking care" of Aaron and your "goodies!"
God Bless Both of You...

Coming back to Aaron's trip, he was supposed to be there from 19.10.2014 till 28.10.2014.  But upon arriving in Aberdeen, his boss called him to cut short his trip by three days.  I believe it is God's timing .... if he flew back on the 28th October, he would not be able to make it to my mom's funeral... He gave an eulogy to his grandma, he has lots of fond memories of her at a very young age.....

  4. Yes, Steven and Mary are such wonderful people. So nice and friendly and easy to get along with. Wonder when they will come back to Sibu.

    Aberdeen is so beautiful. In fact, they say all of Scotland is beautiful...but the mere thought of flying long haul puts me off already.

    Sure, sure, Sharon. Everybody is welcome to visit us here in Sibu, anytime.

  6. Nice! Not many people can boast that they have been to Aberdeen before. It is quite out of the way from the more popular south and west side of Scotland. I hope Aaron had a taste of haggis and lots of whiskey though :D

  8. How far away are you from Aberdeen? We have a restaurant called "The Aberdeen Barn". Looks like he had a wonderful time, he is lucky to have such a job that sends him to places like this, and he does not even have to pay! I hope you are doing well, Claire.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
