First Sunday To Church In Aberdeen

SECOND DAY OF ABERDEEN... It was a Sunday and we set out earlier to town before church service starts at 3pm.  Aaron took me to the Chinese section because the English pastor would be there to deliver a sermon.  The streets of the city was very quiet on this day, Aberdeen always remind me of Ipoh, in terms of traffic.  The people here are quite slow paced like in Ipoh, no jams on the roads whether it is weekdays or weekends.  Slow and steady, people...

As usual, I wrapped myself up from top to bottom, against the cold outside.  Scarfs plays an important role to keep our neck and chest warm, besides that a good pair of warm, furry and comfortable shoes help a lot too.  Weather is very unpredictable.... in the morning, it was very cloudy and by sunny when our church service was over at 4pm. 

Let's go....
Time to do a leap before setting out... 
Aquatics Centre where the workouts are... 
At the city junction... 
One is still a church whereby one turned into a pub..
Wonder why... 
The hotel we stayed when we visited Aberdeen the first time a few years ago... 
A cup of hot chocolate and a fresh warm chocolate croissant after a long walk... 
Window shopping at UNION Square before it is time to leave for church...

  3. Looks like it is more quiet and slow paced than Ipoh. Hardly any traffic on the road on Sunday.

  4. Midday is an unusual time for a church service. But it lets you sleep late! It does look cold and grey!

  5. Very peaceful here, good for holidays, but I wonder would city dwellers like me get bored after a while.

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

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

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
