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

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
