Badminton At Woodbank, Aberdeen

SWINGING THE RACKET...

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.. 
LOL...

  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.

  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.

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...
