Second Day In Aberdeen Exploring And Lunch

AGAIN BOTH OF US WOKE UP EARLY...
This morning I got up at 6am and it was 1pm in Malaysia... So I presume my brain cells are still following Malaysian time and I just coukd not sleep longer over here in Aberdeen.  Seems it was not only me who couldn't sleep, my girl was affected too.  Both of us got up to prepare breakfast, blending some promeganate and oranges and taking bread with peanut butter.  Very healthy breakfast!

Then we went out to explore another direction from our place...and as I walked, I felt colder and colder... My jeans jacket was definitely not thick enough to keep me warm.... Gggrrrr... "Girl, lets turn back, mama is freezing!"  Weather is unpredictable, yesterday was cooling... Today was super cold...

Good to be home again and ended up spending the next hour preparing lunch for the three of us....

Shivering in my two thinner layers...
Huddling at the corner....
That is the furthest point we explored this morning...
Tomorrow we will continue from this point....
Back home, we prepared for lunch... Herbal soup...
Asparagus with some sambal shrimps and cashew nuts...
Asparagus herbal soup
Mushrooms chicken....
Simple lunch for the trio....
Smiles during lunch break....

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...
