Twilight At Stonehaven Harbour

FROM THE DONNATHO CASTLE, AARON DROVE TO TOWN and it was my first time visiting the fishing village.  We parked the car and walked awhile bit before we headed back home.

Stonehaven is a pretty harbour town south of Aberdeen, famous for its Hogmanay fireballs ceremony. Attractive Stonehaven has a sheltered working harbour busy with sailing yachts. The Tolbooth museum is a notable building on the quayside, from where boat trips run to see the legions of feathered friends at Fowlsheugh RSPB reserve, home to the largest seabird colony in mainland Britain. 
This scene is taken at the opposite side where we took our Fish n Chips....
It was almost 8 by then....
Sitting here and enjoying the dusk....
So blue and serene....
Panorama scenic....
At the fishing town.....
Kids were out to play....
Time to take a break...
The kids in their own world... No iPad ... Just the sand....
Stonehaven Harbour....
Across the harbour, the locals chilled out at The Ship Inn....
Took some pics before leaving.....
Yes, my son must have brightened up the pictures.....
My last post on Stonehaven... Indeed a haven for locals and us....

  3. Beautiful place to visit. I think I can smell the sea and hear the sound of children playing at the beach.

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...
