From Brentwood Villa To Giant Crabs At Boddam, Peterhead

WAITED FOR AARON TO COME FETCH US FROM BRENTWOOD VILLA, the one and only guest house which makes one not missing home at all... Mary Moh who is not a stranger to many of us, she has opened a Bed and Breakfast guest house in Aberdeen here. Just opposite Aberdeen University.  A very prestigious location especially for parents and students alike, who can gather and stay at her well furnished rooms, plus on top of that, we can have the luxury to choose our own menu rabging from western food to Malaysian cuisines such as Nasi Lemak, Pan Mee both dry and soupy versions, Roti Canai, Fried Koay Teow and even Satay is not excluded!!  Just type in Brentwood Villa, Aberdeen and her website will appears before your eyes!  Lol....

Back to my post.... From Brentwood villa, we went to Peterhead,an half hour drive to fulfill one purpose.  Boddam is the name of the place where we could purchase giant crabs at a very moderate price.  We bought 8 big crabs and one kilo of velvet crabs plus one giant lobster which weigh one kg... All for the price at only £28!!  I just could't believe it.... And our dinner were just crabs and nothin else...

  6. The scenery in this fishing town is beautiful. How awesome! You get the fish and crabs straight from the sea!! The freshest! Plus no store to add money to the bill. Aaron must be a very good cook. He must have learned well from you.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
