Our First Day In Aberdeen

MY EYES OPENED TO A NEW MORNING IN  ABERDEEN AT AROUND 7AM...

YES... Definitely jet lag is the cause, it is 1pm in Malaysia... And I was not the only one, when I turned to the side of the bed, my girl was already up with her handphone in her hands already!  Lol... For someone who loves to sleep, that was a rare sight.... Since we could not sleep any longer, we got up without wasting any more time in bed.  And funny thing is, we were both famished and the first thing she requested was a bowl of nice piping hot noodles!  Yummmmsss... I certainly would love that too and within some half hour or do, our breakfast was ready!

Wasting no time, we prepared ourselves for an outing around the vicinity.... The groceries were all within walking distance and you know what?  It feels so good to walk on the ground for the first time even though this is my second time here.  My previous trip during last October, I was not in a walking mode but on the two big wheelchair and needed to be pushed all the time.  Thank God for my two patient companions who made the trip possible and enjoyable for me despite my handicap.  Now thinking back, it was indeed a hassle.... Hmmmm....

Back to our first morning, we went to get some groceries... And while walking to the cashier, I realized I did not have any cash with me.... No sterling ...no pounds... Oh dear, how forgetful can I get!  We shedded off more calories by walking home again to retrieve some money... Lol...

Oh yeah, we made appointment to meet up my ever faithful and helpful Mary Moh at Asda.... Great to see her again!!  And to cut my post short, we had lunch in her her B and B guest house.... Her homecooked bowl of noodles received warm applause from both of us... Mary is a fast and efficient cook, within few minutes, we were served with her famous noodles in chicken and wine soup!   Not only that, we came back for dinner in the evening to have dinner and fellowship with the some wonderful Asians from Malaysia and China.

Food and fellowship indeed blends well together!

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
