Bye Aberdeen, Hello Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam

HAPPY MOMENTS PASSES BY VERY FAST AND SOON IT IS TIME TO SAY GOODBYE... Sounds familiar? Yes, it is time to bade goodbye after a 25 days vacation in UK.  If not for my girl whose semester break has ended, I would have stayed longer... perhaps for another month or two... hahahaha... By then, any mention of Malaysian food will make me drool and drool.....

Anyway, back to the day that we left Aberdeen... on the morning we left for the airport, it was very foggy.  Even Aaron had to drive very slowly to the airport, it was almost 8am.  After checking in our luggage, Aaron left for work.  Our flight was supposed to be at 9.15am... but due to the bad visibility, our flight was postponed till 12 noon.  Yes, all the time we were at the airport just waiting and waiting for further instructions.  We were given 9 pounds voucher for food and drinks and while my girl was buying some sandwiches, announcement came and it was time to board....

Thank God for the smooth one hour plus flight to Amsterdam.  Our connecting flight was supposed to be 1pm... yes, naturally we have missed the flight and we were rebooked to another flight which was at 8pm.  And we have six hours to pass at the Schiphol Airport, ranked as the 6th largest airport in the whole world...
This is the airline that we booked but this is not our flight...
Booking the same reconnecting flight has its benefits... 
Any delays, the same airline will rearrange the next flight... 

So what shall we do during the 6 hours wait?  
No more Train to Busan to watch for one thing... 
We walked around the huge airport... and went from one shop to another.. 
Beautiful Tulips everywhere... 
Thought of getting one of these for Andy.... 
But he replied that he would buy it himself the next time when he goes.... 
Meanwhile we were fascinated by the comfortable and endless resting place here and there... 
A very unfamiliar scene from some airports as in KLIA for one... 
No humans lying and sleeping on these... 
Only this small human who could not resist cuddling the giant bear....
Or it is a Giant Doggy?
There is even one Science section for adults and kids alike to spend time on.... 
A very nice airport to sit quietly and comfortable while waiting for the flight.... 
Alright, time to move on... 
Flight was right on schedule and we reached KLIA 12 hours later... 
And ow we are back in our Home Sweet Home.... 
Thank you for making this trip safe and smooth for us!
Hope to be there once again in 2017!!

  9. Isn't it great that so many airports have such shops, and are now almost like malls? Especially when you have to spend the day there. Sorry to see your beautiful trip come to an end. We live at the base of the mountains and there is lots of fog regularly. It is usually the low clouds. The road has fog lights in the ground all along the highway, but the fog can be so think that they can be of little help.

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
