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.

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! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
