A Visit To The Gordon Highlanders Museum, Aberdeen

One of His highlights *not mine* is the Gordon Highlanders Museum here in Aberdeen.  My BIL is all for history, especially those war memorials.... visiting museums is the main itinerary for his trip to UK.  Before he came, he already did a lot of research on where to go and places to visit. 

And so here we are on one fine weekend...

The Gordon Highlanders Museum... it is based in Aberdeen and it celebrates the story of the Gordon Highlanders which were active from 1794 to 1994 and it is a 5 star Scottish Tourist Board attraction, according to Wikipedia.
Walking up the entrance to the museum.... 
At the entrance, the two guys bought their tickets to go in....
While the two ladies made their way to the cosy cafe..... 
We ordered a light breakfast..... 
Lentils soup and tuna sandwich...  around 6 pounds... 
I was not a Big Fan of soup before... 
But now, I definitely AM!
As long as it is not milky creamy based, I am fine with any type of soup... 
While waiting for the guys, we walked around the gift shop.... 
One hour later, they exit from their tour.... 
My BIL gave full praises for the guided tour... 
Definitely worth the visit, he said... 
hmmm.... 
And before we left, a Salute to the heroes....

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger!

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

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...
