Our First Day In Aberdeen

MY EYES OPENED TO A NEW MORNING IN  ABERDEEN AT AROUND 7AM...

YES... Definitely jet lag is the cause, it is 1pm in Malaysia... And I was not the only one, when I turned to the side of the bed, my girl was already up with her handphone in her hands already!  Lol... For someone who loves to sleep, that was a rare sight.... Since we could not sleep any longer, we got up without wasting any more time in bed.  And funny thing is, we were both famished and the first thing she requested was a bowl of nice piping hot noodles!  Yummmmsss... I certainly would love that too and within some half hour or do, our breakfast was ready!

Wasting no time, we prepared ourselves for an outing around the vicinity.... The groceries were all within walking distance and you know what?  It feels so good to walk on the ground for the first time even though this is my second time here.  My previous trip during last October, I was not in a walking mode but on the two big wheelchair and needed to be pushed all the time.  Thank God for my two patient companions who made the trip possible and enjoyable for me despite my handicap.  Now thinking back, it was indeed a hassle.... Hmmmm....

Back to our first morning, we went to get some groceries... And while walking to the cashier, I realized I did not have any cash with me.... No sterling ...no pounds... Oh dear, how forgetful can I get!  We shedded off more calories by walking home again to retrieve some money... Lol...

Oh yeah, we made appointment to meet up my ever faithful and helpful Mary Moh at Asda.... Great to see her again!!  And to cut my post short, we had lunch in her her B and B guest house.... Her homecooked bowl of noodles received warm applause from both of us... Mary is a fast and efficient cook, within few minutes, we were served with her famous noodles in chicken and wine soup!   Not only that, we came back for dinner in the evening to have dinner and fellowship with the some wonderful Asians from Malaysia and China.

Food and fellowship indeed blends well together!

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

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

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...
