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!

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....

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...
