First Sunday To Church In Aberdeen

SECOND DAY OF ABERDEEN... It was a Sunday and we set out earlier to town before church service starts at 3pm.  Aaron took me to the Chinese section because the English pastor would be there to deliver a sermon.  The streets of the city was very quiet on this day, Aberdeen always remind me of Ipoh, in terms of traffic.  The people here are quite slow paced like in Ipoh, no jams on the roads whether it is weekdays or weekends.  Slow and steady, people...

As usual, I wrapped myself up from top to bottom, against the cold outside.  Scarfs plays an important role to keep our neck and chest warm, besides that a good pair of warm, furry and comfortable shoes help a lot too.  Weather is very unpredictable.... in the morning, it was very cloudy and by sunny when our church service was over at 4pm. 

Let's go....
Time to do a leap before setting out... 
Aquatics Centre where the workouts are... 
At the city junction... 
One is still a church whereby one turned into a pub..
Wonder why... 
The hotel we stayed when we visited Aberdeen the first time a few years ago... 
A cup of hot chocolate and a fresh warm chocolate croissant after a long walk... 
Window shopping at UNION Square before it is time to leave for church...

  3. Looks like it is more quiet and slow paced than Ipoh. Hardly any traffic on the road on Sunday.

  4. Midday is an unusual time for a church service. But it lets you sleep late! It does look cold and grey!

  5. Very peaceful here, good for holidays, but I wonder would city dwellers like me get bored after a while.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
