Affordable Stay At Pension Alpha Hotel In Frankfurt

WE STAYED IN A MODEST HOTEL CALLED PENSION ALPHA... It is just five minutes walk from the train station, very convenient for us to move about especially we have to take the tram to visit the city.   At first we didn't notice much of the name but after we checked in, we know why it is called Pension Alpha! 

Let me talk about the hotel, I highly recommend this cos it fits my disability in the room.  Most important is the toilet... There is a slab in the bathroom which I could sit on when I shower and the toilet is near to the sink, It is big enough to put a plastic chair near the sink to do my cleaning... Phew... I was so relieved for I was longing for a good shower!!  
As for the room, there are three beds near to each other... I like... We can have a good bonding before we call it a night....
We stayed three nights here... £50 for each of us which is quite reasonable....
Only setback is I have to hop down six steps to the lift each time we go out...
No complaints about that as long as I can hold on to someone's shoulder.... 😀
Since we stay near to the train station, we had our dinner there on the first night...
So many outlets and much to choose from...
But of course, we chose this... Our first Pork Knuckle in Germany... 
And my friend could not resist the belly as well.... 
With another plate of large potato fries and hot drinks, we were completely satisfied....
After dinner, we had a short stroll around the vicinity....
It was already dark around 6pm... Day is short....
How Hauptbahnhof looks by night.....
After a short stroll, we called it a night....
Wanted to be fully energised and recharged the next day to go downtown.....

As for the hotel, we guessed that it is manned by a few pensioners cos those on duty are all elderly men... Only one of them speak simple English...at first they seem unsmiling but after greeting them whenever we go in and out, they are much friendlier and generous with their smiles.... Well... Cute!!

  11. Good choice of hotel when it is so near the station.
    I would do the same when I visit Japan every year otherwise it would be crazy to walk for miles.
    Their huge pork knuckles look very well done and crispy!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
