Ferry Across And Seafood Dinner At Isle Of Skye

ISLE OF SKYE...

We have to make it to the ferry terminal to cross over to the Isle of Skye before 4.30pm.  Actually there are two options to cross over to the isle aka island, one is by using the ferry from Mallaig and another is by using the Skye bridge which we did the next day.  Aaron wanted us to try the ferry first and so we did.  The ferry catered for cars too, (just like Penang) and it took around 30 minutes to cross over to the Isle of Skye. 
Ferrying us across... 
As we sailed along... 
On the ferry... indoor and outdoor... 
Of course, I was indoor... the guys are more adventurous...
They took these pictures.... so beautiful... 
Nearing the Isle of Skye... 


Isle of Skye is a popular resort for both locals and tourists far and near.  It is known for its rugged landscapes, picturesque fishing villages and medieval castles.  Portree is the name of the town, a base for exploring the island and it features harbourside pubs and boutiques.  But first.... before it turned dark, actually it did turn dark by 5pm, we were huddled into a restaurant for our dinner, we were super hungry by then!

Cuchullin Restaurant it is called.... a 16th century lodge which serves fresh and local seafood and meat.  Actually we did not do any homework on this, we just randomly entered into one...

I sat beside the giant lobster at the window... 
Ordered seafood pasta... 
Must try their lobsters... not the one by the window though... 
Seafood platter.. consisting of fresh scallops, fish, mussels... 
I like the scallops... so big and juicy!
Part of our order...
These too.... 
Actually not a lot... everything was wiped off clean... 
And we must not leave the place without this below... 
Ice cream with Moist Chocolate Cake or was it Brownie.. 
And our meal... before and after...
And the next hassle...
Finding our AirBnB in the dark up the mountains!

  3. A beautiful blue journey. And the food looks divine! I hope you managed to ignore that lobster perched beside you; no guilt for eating his brother!

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

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....

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...
