Fishing Village Called Boddam For Crabs and Lobsters

SATURDAY MORNING...

We set out on a short trip to Boddam, a coastal village, half an hour north from Aberdeen.  It is a small fishing village and Aaron used to get his fresh seafood from a fisherman named John.  The night before Aaron called him to reserved some crabs and lobsters. Oh yes, he enquired about the prices too.. one kilogram of crabs is 2.50 pounds (around RM14)  and one kg of lobster is around 13 pounds! (around RM70)  Ohhh... how not to buy!  We must go, I told Aaron.....

The next day, the weather was very nice... sunny all the way for our one hour day trip.  Five of us squeezed into the car the next day... bringing home around 17 crabs and 2 big lobsters for dinner that evening.  
Such a lovely weather on the highway.... 
I think I can drive too... if given a chance... LOL... 
About an hour later, we reached Boddam...
The harbour where John is waiting for us... 
ahhhh.. there he is... 
Hauling the net of crabs up to his boat....

His name for the boat is Fertility.... indeed very productive!
His assistant going down to the boat to help John.... 
16 crabs was around 14kg and he gave one free crab to go...
Total we paid was 35 pounds for 17 crabs and 2 big lobsters....
Brown Crabs... 
Aaron was most excited...

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
