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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

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
