TGIF With Mary At The Beach, Aberdeen


Yes, I sprained my muscle while playing badminton the other day...  I was trying to retrieve the shuttle at front, I ran over and stretched my knee forward.... and... oh oh... the sharp pain occurred at that very moment.  I told my partner, "I think this is it, you have to cover for me, I think I sprained something at the knee...."  And that ended my badminton session, just after two weeks I arrived... LOL... I have to hang up the racket again!

Since that evening, I had pain while walking up and down the stairs, not so much on walking, thank God.  Bought some supplements and knee guard and that is some consolation for now.... So, now back to basics, walking, shopping and eating...  no more sprinting around like a spring chicken which I thought I could be.  LOL..
The Woodbanks where we played badminton...
Guess I won't be coming here for the rest of my stay for now...
The beautiful red tree in front of Woodbanks...
Bye bye Red Tree... 
One evening Mary and I went for dinner at TGIF... 
Actually we just wanted something light cos both of were still full from lunch... 
We started off with an appetizer....
Followed by a half rack of ribs in Jack Daniel sauce...
Just two dishes for two small stomachs...
Happy moments at TGIF....
Back home, I was treated with a piece of Macha Cheese Cake baked by student.... 
He loves to bake and I always get a chance to try!


  1. Oh dear!!! You had a problem with your leg once...just before we left for Aberdeen. Do be careful, people our age need to take extra care - hope you are ok now. That red tree is really beautiful!

    1. Oops...before YOU left for Aberdeen, I mean. Excuse the typo.

  2. OUCH, I am so sorry about your injury!! The red tree is gorgeous.

  3. Oh dear...hope your leg recovers soon. Is it the same one that you broke sometime ago?

  4. please take good care of your knee. did you both finish the rack of ribs? looks tasty!

  5. Take care and speedy recovery. The red tree looks really lovely. Wonder what tree is that. The matcha cheese cake looks tasty.

  6. Do take care. Sprained muscle is not little business. Could get worse if not rest and treated well.

    I have been to TGIF once and that was in KL. No outlet over here (yet).

  7. Guai guai take it easy ah... man man lai ok

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...
