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.

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

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...
