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...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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

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...
