From Aberdeen To London And Oxford

SATURDAY MORNING WE LEFT FOR LONDON... It was only an hour plus flight from Aberdeen to London.  We reached London around 1pm and from there, we hired an Avis car and drove straight to Oxford which was an hour plus away from London.  This is our first time going to Oxford and we didn't know what to expect.  For all we know, Oxford is the place where academic is highly respected.  When you say you graduated from Oxford university, you will expect some expressions like...  "wahhhh, so clever ah".... Hahahaha... Ok, I am speaking for myself only....

Back to my post, we managed to find our guest house without any hassle using the GPS... I think I would not be able to if I were the driver!  The guest house is not so new but nevertheless, it was clean and the staff were pleasant.  Breakast was included, simple food like bread, cereals, buns, yogurt and hot drinks were provided.  All we need actually was a nice convenient spot where we do not have to drive into the city, all were within walking distance...
Arrival at Heaththrow Airport....
Our Guest House called Cherwell... 
Walking distance to the city and restaurants...
Our humble room...
One double and one single with attached bathroom....
Cost around £30 per person and we stayed for two nights....
After a good rest, we had our dinner here... Just 10 minutes walk away.....
Mixed grill....
With pineapple sauce.... Very nice... Around £15
And slow oven baked chicken with some special sauce... Cannot remember what....
Around £11...
After our light dinner, we walked across to complete the meal.....
Many to choose from......
And we got a double scoops to share... £4
Yes, our meal ended in desserts, no less..... Time to call it a night...
Once the light went out, everything was silent to us....
I guess We were fully exhausted after a long day....

  1. Two of my favourite places in England. Make sure you catch a musical at London West End, an experience of a lifetime! Wonder what the ones that are currently showing now are.

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...
