Mackie's Ice Cream At Marischal Square, Aberdeen

BACK TO CITY CENTER... looking for ice cream before we called it a day.  Our seafood treasure was still at the back of our car boot, thank goodness for cold weather, otherwise our loot would be all spoilt.  We parked our car nearby and walked to the city center which beholds a very tudor like building which captured my eyes....
My handphone can capture only this part of the Marischal College... 
I feel I am not doing any justice to this beautiful structure.... 
And hence the below picture taken from Mr. Google... 
Aberdeen City Marischal College Scottish Tudor Gothic front spires granite silver spires is one of the most recognisable buildings in the City of Aberdeen...
And from there, we walked into this beautiful sculpture f Aberdeen... 
At Marischal's Square just opposite the college... 
The leopard poised at five meters tall with a five meter tail...
weighs over two tons and balanced on a ten meter high steel column...
Yeah, I got the information from here... LOL... 
Officially ready since October 2017...
And now... 
Beside the Poised Leopard lies our destination... 
Mackie's 19.2 is a local Scottish creamery... 
Their prices... 
They have what I love to have... 
The rainbow colours... I opted for the Rum and Raisin... 
And That was our last itinerary for the day!

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!

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....

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...
