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 Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
