Our Farewell Home Cooked Dinner In Aberdeen, Scotland

The next morning after our breakfast in Stirling, we had to check out and soon it was time to go back to Aberdeen. Our one week stint has ended.. finally! With the help of GPS, we reached our hotel Jury Inn in Aberdeen in the afternoon.  I was actually feeling very happy to be back in Aberdeen... WHY?

Well, Mary is the reason!  She sent messages in FB while we traveled and I almost jumped with joy when she extended her invitation to her house for dinner  in one of her messages.  She hoped we could make it for dinner...bI quickly replied her message YES, YES without feeling a bit of embarrassment!  (Mary, I was hoping that we could see you again! LOL.... )

Really.... imagine so many days traveling and eating western food, I was actually yearning and craving for  homecooked Chinese food!  Phew... Mary, you know my heart's desire!  LOL...

When we reached her house, she was still preparing her the dishes... but knowing Mary, she is really a fast worker!  In no time, all the dishes were "deliciously served" on the table!
Just look at these!!!
"All these good food for us???" 
Aaron seems to be saying... LOL...
  
Home Made Chicken Rice - Aberdeen style!
Salmon Curry!
This one doesn't need introduction, right?
Oh Me Oh MY!  Really Yummylicious!
A veryWell Balanced Meal with a plate of greens...
After dinner... we were served with .... 
All these Goodies!
Home Made Ang-ku-s!
Mary's BBQ Dumplings! 
What a Scrumptious Meal !!
A picture to remember us by....
  
I believe that SOMEONE GREAT arranged this meeting....
He brought us together...Allowing us to know each other..
Though we are staying thousands of miles apart...
Nothing seems to be impossible...
Mary... Stephen...
Thank you once again for making us feel at home
It is a Great Pleasure to know both of you.... 
Hope we can meet up one day... yes..One Day...

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
