Travel Plans

Autumn  is coming soon, how about making a trip to Europe?  i have not been to the many countries in east or West Europe as yet.   My last furthest trip was during the spring and I spent two beautiful weeks in Scotland.  The weather was at its best,, it was very cooling and I love it very much though I was wrapped up from the top to the bottom.  This was my second trip to Scotland, my first time to this beautiful country was in the 1980.  I was there to attend my brother's convocation and that was my first trip overseas. I remember during my two week stay, my brother took me around a few places such as Edinburgh, Dundee and down south to Lindon.  I can still remember the historical castles and one of them is the Edinburgh Castle.  It was one of the most memorable place I have ever been and I wouldn't want to miss it when I went there again last April.  The scenery was so spectacular! I can remember going to the beautiful parks and gardens, the flowers were fully bloomed then. Now thinking back I wish I could make another trip to Edinburgh once again. I would love to visit the cathedrals and the museums, Mary King's Close and the Outlook Tower.

But the next trip I would like to visit are some Europe countries such as Italy, Austria, Belgium, France and the list goes on and on.  But before I go, I must get more information about these places I wanted to go.  I am sure my kids will love to follow me.  My second son has plans to further his studies in UK. I have seen him checking out details on some universities and I hope he will make his decision soon.  His finals will be in December and hopefully by then he will be able to make up his mind.  Before he goes for further studies, we hope to do some traveling, together as a family.  I guess traveling is in our blood... Lol... Most important thing is money when it comes to traveling especially to faraway places.  Better put some savings aside from now on, it is never too late to save, right?

  1. We love, love, LOVE Edinburgh! Definitely visit again.

    Six years ago, we rented an apartment (I forgot the name, but it was next to a brewery). The apartment was very affordable then, but it has doubled now.

  3. Hi Claire, yes will be nice, however I prefer Glasgow, not so cold. While Edinburgh is the capital city, Glasgow is largest with more excitement I believe.
    Must try the whisky, make you feel warm.
    While there take some time to travel south to the Lake District. Will be nice.

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...
