Badminton At Woodbank, Aberdeen


I thought I am done with badminton, I had not been playing for a few years already in Malaysia...  and now over here in Aberdeen, it seems I have to hold the racket again, I just cannot resist playing though the "skills" are no more there.... LOL... NO power, no accuracy and slow of course, really "rusty" ... feel kind of "shy" to be in the courts with new people, new grounds and learning from them. 

Seems this will be our regular hangout during the weekdays' evenings, at least twice a week to lose some sweat, real dripping sweat from the running..... otherwise, it is all about burning fats due to the coldness of the weather.  The weather makes me hungry very fast and I keep eating every hour or so...
Before entering the courts, we had a light tea at the Woodbanks club for Shell members....
A nice glass of hot coffee or was it cappucino?
No, it is not mine, I settled for lemon tea which I had forgotten to take... 
Two badminton courts.... 
After some warming up, the game starts....
Partnering with Mary who is the real good player... 
Ready to "kill".... LOL... 
Nice to meet with new friends from Brunei, Miri and Germany... 
Aaron waiting for the opponent to smash... 
And the evening ended one for the album... 
The blurry picture must be due to the shaky hands after a good match.. 


  1. When you mention badminton, I was thinking about Mary...

  2. lol, blurry picture due to shaky hands after badminton....very true!

  3. Of the 3 games, ping pong, tennis and badminton, I love the game of badminton the most, as tennis rackets are too heavy for me and I don't really like the ping pong game. I love to "aim" at my opponents and "smack" when playing badminton, LOL. I miss my badminton game days and we can spend hours just playing badminton.

  4. Good that you are playing badminton there for exercise. Good workout for the whole body.

  5. Yes, cold weather makes me hungry too - I would want to eat all the time...and because I will not be sweating as much, I will put on weight fast. Good that you go and play badminton there.

  6. I wonder I still got it or not badminton. Ages I didn't hold racket. Lol.

    Not bad, can meet new friends from other countries on the court.

  7. Good opportunity to brush up your badminton skill. Now can eat more and then sweat it out in the badminton court. Lol!

  8. Very good lah you, still got stamina!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
