On The Campus Grounds At Aberdeen University, Scotland

ON UNIVERSITY GROUNDS...
Aberdeen University is just opposite Brentwood Villa, the guest house which is owned by my friend.  Professors from foreign countries love to stay at her place, parents of students also find her guest house very convenient, it is just directly opposite Aberdeen University and I, too is staying nearby.  This area makes me feel younger, walking alongside with the students and whenever I look out from my window, mainly are young looking people!  LOL...

One evening before dinner, Aaron and I took a walk to the inside grounds of the university.  Unlike in Malaysia, where there are guards all around the campus, over here, it is a free ground.  We can go through the main entrance and to the campus grounds, no one bothers.  My son told me that I could even go into the lecture hall... serious???  Well, I guess I am not going to try that.... but I do not mind going again into the vicinity of the halls, the landscaping is too beautiful to resist....

This evening we just walked a small bit.... it was almost dusk when we came out.... one day, I must go in when the sun is shining bright...

At the entrance.... 
And as we walked around.... just a small fraction of the campus... 
The University of Aberdeenis a public research university in Aberdeen, Scotland founded in 1945
No wonder it is open to the public... 
One section of the lecture halls... 
Aberdeen has approximately 13,500 students from undergraduate to doctoral level, 
including many international students..
The main campus is now at King's College, where the original buildings are still in use in addition to many newer buildings of largely modernist style.
As dusk falls.... it is so beautiful.... 
One can just sit here on the grounds... just to relax... if not for the cold weather... 
See, get what I mean?
Relax....
Very historical feel.... 
And the rest of my poses.... 
Taken on a brighter side... 
And this the original lighting at 7pm...

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....

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...
