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.

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...
