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!!

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...
