Looking Over The Cliff At Collieston Village

AFTER OUR LUNCH AT HARBOUR SPRINGS, Aaron continued to drive us to a sandy and secluded place called Collieston Beach.  Collieston is another fishing village in the ancient days, a shelthered beach in this small village.  First visit for me and the youngsters, Aaron is our tour guide.  I guess whoever comes to Aberdeen, these are the places he would be taking them to.  LOL...

Alright, time to do some exercising after our heavy lunch.  Parked the car and we walked up the cliff to have these breathtaking pictures taken on higher grounds.   Yes, as usual I am afraid of heights but that did not deter me from going up, only thing is that I stay away from edges, praying that the wind would not blow me over.... LOL..
On the way to the Collieston Beach, passing through the meadows on both sides...
Stopped by to say hello to this highland cow...
He or she kept staring at us..
"Who are these black hair people??"
Walking up to higher grounds when we reach the Collieston beach... 
On higher grounds now.... 
Beautiful sight awaiting us....
The secluded beach.... 
Maybe more people in the summer...
It was pretty windy from the angle we took the pictures...
I was actually very worried that the wind could blow me away!
A village across where they offer this below....
But no, we did not have our share of Ice Cream up here...too cold...
And a final picture against the sun before we left...
Taken here and there.... 
And the happy smiles before we left Collieston....

  4. I wouldn't mind walking along the cliff. I like adventure but of course one must be careful not to trip or miss a step.

    Very hairy cow. Haha. But good to keep him or her warm on highlands.

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....

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...
