Shopping At Union Square And Primark, Aberdeen

AFTER OUR LUNCH, AARON DROPPED US AT UNION SQUARE....
We have approximately four hours plus to do our shopping!  My girl was all Yes for it while the mother has to start refilling the wallet before we set out.  I told her i have 70 pounds in my pocket, would be enough and I received groans... Ok, ok, Mama added in another 100 and a piece of credit card, enough?  Her smile appeared and We set out happily after that....

First shop we stepped in was JD Sports, Nike was on her mind.  Very nice designs and each pair cost around 65 pounds.  We walked out empty-handed.  On my mind, it is Primark, Primark... Very affordable prices there, to my astonishment. One dress displayed was only £1 !!  Yes, no joke, I quickly took a picture and whatsapp to my siblings, they took some time to reply and by the time they did, The dress has disappeared somewhere in someone's bag presumably.... Too late....

Anyway, we had a good loot spendin more than two hours there... And that was only the ladies' section!  We did not have time to go for men's.  Lol... We must go there again some day.  To our delight, Our loot came to a total of £27 plus!! Oh my goodness... If those were purchased in Malaysia, the total could be easily few hundred ringgit!  Yes, I bought all on sale from £1 and most expensive is my girl's pair of jeans which is £8!  Ok, must go again!! Ladies.... Lol...

Hollister is next!  The cheapest on the rack is £7.99... Good buy... Got a few for the males.... And after that, no more... My weary legs were screaming rest...rest.... Total damage for the shopping done was around £70... Indeed the standard of living here is very much lower than my country, no doubt about that...

Arrived at the Union Square....
Oh, we did not have time to go to T.K.Max...
JD and Clarks....
But she was more interested in JD for her Nike....
Inside Union Square...
We explored further to Trinity Center...
Looking for Primark and we found it after some enquiry...
And our giant bag with our loots....
Still had time to cook a simple dinner and soon, time for us to hit the pillows!
I am really surprised that I could sleep soundly even before it hits 10pm!!

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
