Shopping At Union Square And Primark, Aberdeen

AFTER OUR LUNCH, AARON DROPPED US AT UNION SQUARE....
We have approximately four hours plus to do our shopping!  My girl was all Yes for it while the mother has to start refilling the wallet before we set out.  I told her i have 70 pounds in my pocket, would be enough and I received groans... Ok, ok, Mama added in another 100 and a piece of credit card, enough?  Her smile appeared and We set out happily after that....

First shop we stepped in was JD Sports, Nike was on her mind.  Very nice designs and each pair cost around 65 pounds.  We walked out empty-handed.  On my mind, it is Primark, Primark... Very affordable prices there, to my astonishment. One dress displayed was only £1 !!  Yes, no joke, I quickly took a picture and whatsapp to my siblings, they took some time to reply and by the time they did, The dress has disappeared somewhere in someone's bag presumably.... Too late....

Anyway, we had a good loot spendin more than two hours there... And that was only the ladies' section!  We did not have time to go for men's.  Lol... We must go there again some day.  To our delight, Our loot came to a total of £27 plus!! Oh my goodness... If those were purchased in Malaysia, the total could be easily few hundred ringgit!  Yes, I bought all on sale from £1 and most expensive is my girl's pair of jeans which is £8!  Ok, must go again!! Ladies.... Lol...

Hollister is next!  The cheapest on the rack is £7.99... Good buy... Got a few for the males.... And after that, no more... My weary legs were screaming rest...rest.... Total damage for the shopping done was around £70... Indeed the standard of living here is very much lower than my country, no doubt about that...

Arrived at the Union Square....
Oh, we did not have time to go to T.K.Max...
JD and Clarks....
But she was more interested in JD for her Nike....
Inside Union Square...
We explored further to Trinity Center...
Looking for Primark and we found it after some enquiry...
And our giant bag with our loots....
Still had time to cook a simple dinner and soon, time for us to hit the pillows!
I am really surprised that I could sleep soundly even before it hits 10pm!!

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

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

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...
