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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
