The Sights And Food At Oban Town, Scotland

OBAN TOWN....

Oban is also a port in western Scotland, a gateway to the Hebridean islands.  Seafood eateries cluster by the harbour and we walked around the seafront, from one end to the other.   That is how I lost the food calories when I travel around...  I walked and walked till I felt my legs were on "auto cruise!"  But I love it!  I can eat more after that!  LOL.... I really don't mind walking long distance even though the weather is below 10 degrees.

Yes, I think everyone would have noticed by now that I always have my pink winter jacket on... LOL... That is the warmest jacket I have and beneath the winter jacket is just a pullover.  With one wool scarf around my neck and a pair of comfortable walking shoes, I feel safe from the cold.

After the long walk, we randomly walked into one of the cafes at the harbourfront to have our lunch.  For the five of us, we ordered a few dishes and beer, costing around 50 pounds.. Now looking back at our lunch, we did not actually eat a lot, did we?  :)
Beautiful Oban... 
At the harbourfront... 
The Walkers... 
Sunny but cold... 
Along the main street.... 
Quiet and peaceful... 
We stopped by here to the famous Oban Distillery... 
However we did not go for the wine tasting and tour... 

We are more interested in this place instead...
FOOD!
Seafood pasta... 
Sea Bass with creamy sauce.. 
Seafood chowder... 
And I forgot what else... 
Fresh mussels not to be missed... 
And before digging in.... cheese!!
Now I know why Oban is highly recommended!

  4. This is a beautiful place, it has everything! Good tour. Wow, you will walk when it is 10 degrees!! Well, I guess as long as there is no wind! Look at the beautiful ceiling in the distillery! And the seafood pasta looks wonderful, wish I had the recipe. The pink coat is made just for you!! No one else could look or feel better in it.

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...
