Flying On Wheels From Aberdeen To Amsterdam

WE LEFT ABERDEEN VERY EARLY THE NEXT MORNING...It was raining quite heavy when the cab came to fetch us to the airport.  For the past ten days while we were there, there was no rain to deter us from going out, thank God for that... I did not sleep well the night before, maybe due to the fact I had to get up early the next day...
At the airport as usual, I am now in the special assistance care... Going to disabled toilets is a norm for me now besides being wheeled about endlessly....
We had another one hour to go before boarding... And we were feeling very sleepy and cold...
First to line up as usual but this I was last to go in because the van which was supposed to "forklift" me up to the airplane was held up by another disabled... πŸ˜€
I was "scooped" up the plane via the emergency exit and was given the privilege to sit at the first class... So nice of them even though it was only a short flight to Amsterdam...
Above the clouds and I could only see this horizontal line....
Our first time sitting first class...
Food served for us at tge first class..... 
For economy only chips and drink for the short flight...
Finally we landed.....
Waiting for our luggage and my left and right chaperon....
The Schiphol airport is really huge, really... We could easily walked endlessly if not for the 'assistance'..
After everything was done and checked, we waited outside for hour host to pick us up....
Our tour has begun... I am having mixed feelings... Excited and nervous at the same time..
We are now on our own, staying in new places and depending on public transport...
In my present condition, I hope we can overcome all odds and have a good time....

  2. I guess it's ok, you get wheeled and carried around. Not too much pressure on the injury. Take good care, most important.

  7. Err.. okay one lah, Europe is very OKU friendly one, all their buildings and systems are designed as such. I think you won't run into any obstacles there. Probably the biggest problem would be encountering those IS refugees, seems like they are all over Europe and camped out in the streets.

  14. They Europeans are always very flexible and very considerate to allow you better seats.
    You are lucky to get the snap shot of the guy in uniform as most airports would grab our cameras.
    Even I kena at LCCT last time when he accused me for snaping the check in counter. In the end, there was nothing inside my camera pula.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
