A Drive Up Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven, Aberdeen

WITH TUMMIES FULLY FILLED WITH FISH N CHIPS AND ICE CREAM, IT IS TIME TO SET OFF.... Aaron drove another ten minutes and stopped to visit the Dunnottar Castle.  Last year I stayed inside the car and waited because the trail is not suitable for wheelchair.  This time I managed to go and I need to hold on to my son's arms for the trail was quite stoney and rocky.... Ever since I hurt my leg last year, i have no confidence walking along uneven roads.  I worry about twisting my leg again... But if I did not visit Dunnottar this time, I would not be able to feel this breathtaking scenery....

This dramatic and evocative ruined cliff top fortress was the home of the Earls Marischal, once one of the most powerful families in Scotland. Steeped in history, this romantic and haunting ruin is a photographer’s paradise, a history lover’s dream and an iconic tourist destination for visitors the world over. Visit Dunnottar Castle for your own unforgettable experience and discover the importance of Dunnottar – an impregnable fortress that holds many rich secrets of Scotland’s colourful past.

Our walk started from here.....
Soon ... I saw this awesome sight before my eyes....
The blue sea around 7pm in the evening... The days were longer here...
The cliffs ... The kids... I was so fearsome for them...
The castle in sight on the right....
Even my girl was near the cliff.... I have to stand at a distance to watch.... Very phobia...
I am glad they are not like me....
Scenery Reminds me of some movies....
It would be more beautiful to see the sun set....
Can't leave this place without my poses, right?  Lol....
One....
Two....
Three.....
Four......  That's it!!
I have left my "footprints" here this time!!

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
