A Long Flight To Aberdeen By KLM

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY..

I took a long flight all the way from Ipoh to Aberdeen ALONE, all by myself... Am I clever?  Says who?? LOL... Nothing great but for me, I think I have achieved a milestone.  LOL.. More to come after travelling alone for the first time, the ice is broken.... finally.

From Ipoh to the KLIA, it took nearly 4 hours to reach due to the jam in the evening, thank God I started out early and I reached the airport half an hour before the counter is opened. Just nice to settle down and then checked in my big luggage.  Went to the premier lounge to have a light dinner and waited for another hour before boarding time.  Up on the plane, I spent my time watching two movies, most of the time, my eyes were closing and I guess the movies were watching me instead.  Food on flight was not to my taste as usual, not their fault but mine, of course... never like to eat the main meals on board except for the cakes or ice cream.  LOL..

Fast forward, after 12 hours of flight from KL to Amsterdam on transit then to Aberdeen, I arrived safely, Thank God for journey mercies and feeling super hungry by then!

The airport was under renovation... and I think I was the first one non EU to come out.. 
How did I know that?
Cos my bag was the first one to come out from the belt! LOL..
From the airport to where hungry tummies go.... 
It is called Frankie And Benny's..
We were the early birds... 
By the time we left, all the booths were occupied... 
We had Spaghetti with Meatballs...
Yes, I could finish all that!
And sweet potato fries... 
There goes my waistline!
Alright, we actually shared this set... 
Must leave some space for dinner!
My first meal in Aberdeen...
Glad to be here again!

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

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
