From Brentwood Villa To Giant Crabs At Boddam, Peterhead

WAITED FOR AARON TO COME FETCH US FROM BRENTWOOD VILLA, the one and only guest house which makes one not missing home at all... Mary Moh who is not a stranger to many of us, she has opened a Bed and Breakfast guest house in Aberdeen here. Just opposite Aberdeen University.  A very prestigious location especially for parents and students alike, who can gather and stay at her well furnished rooms, plus on top of that, we can have the luxury to choose our own menu rabging from western food to Malaysian cuisines such as Nasi Lemak, Pan Mee both dry and soupy versions, Roti Canai, Fried Koay Teow and even Satay is not excluded!!  Just type in Brentwood Villa, Aberdeen and her website will appears before your eyes!  Lol....

Back to my post.... From Brentwood villa, we went to Peterhead,an half hour drive to fulfill one purpose.  Boddam is the name of the place where we could purchase giant crabs at a very moderate price.  We bought 8 big crabs and one kilo of velvet crabs plus one giant lobster which weigh one kg... All for the price at only £28!!  I just could't believe it.... And our dinner were just crabs and nothin else...

  6. The scenery in this fishing town is beautiful. How awesome! You get the fish and crabs straight from the sea!! The freshest! Plus no store to add money to the bill. Aaron must be a very good cook. He must have learned well from you.

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
