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.

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....

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...
