A Walk Up to Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven

MEADOWS UP THE HILL...

Our calories from the lunch was soon burnt when we walked up the hill leading to the Dunnottar Castle in Stonehaven.  Dunnottar Castle is a ruined medieval fortress build in the 15th and 16th centuries, located upon a rocky headland on the northeastern coast of Scotland, 3 kilometers from Stonehaven.

This time round, we used another way to walk up the hill, it was around 3pm then and very chilly.  Days are shorter now, it could grow dark anytime around 4pm onwards.  So we have an hour to make our way up and down the hill, walking on the grass pathway up, leading us to mesmerizing scenery of the cliffs and the sea below....
The meadow walkers... 

This is the way we went up the hilly... 
The stairs leading to the Dunnottar Castle... 
It was a long way.. the long and winding stairway...
No, we did not go there... 
We just passed it by.... 
And came to this part of the cliff instead.... 
Nice... breathtaking... 
We stood up here and let the wind blew into our faces... 
*Yeah, have to be careful that I don't get blown away too!*
We could hear the waves splashing about below...
Our shadows making our presence here... 
And then we made our way back to our car....
The sun is setting down at around 4pm... 
Getting the feel of the cold... 
Yes, this is a Good Walk!
Would love to come back again soon!!

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! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
