TGIF With Mary At The Beach, Aberdeen


Yes, I sprained my muscle while playing badminton the other day...  I was trying to retrieve the shuttle at front, I ran over and stretched my knee forward.... and... oh oh... the sharp pain occurred at that very moment.  I told my partner, "I think this is it, you have to cover for me, I think I sprained something at the knee...."  And that ended my badminton session, just after two weeks I arrived... LOL... I have to hang up the racket again!

Since that evening, I had pain while walking up and down the stairs, not so much on walking, thank God.  Bought some supplements and knee guard and that is some consolation for now.... So, now back to basics, walking, shopping and eating...  no more sprinting around like a spring chicken which I thought I could be.  LOL..
The Woodbanks where we played badminton...
Guess I won't be coming here for the rest of my stay for now...
The beautiful red tree in front of Woodbanks...
Bye bye Red Tree... 
One evening Mary and I went for dinner at TGIF... 
Actually we just wanted something light cos both of were still full from lunch... 
We started off with an appetizer....
Followed by a half rack of ribs in Jack Daniel sauce...
Just two dishes for two small stomachs...
Happy moments at TGIF....
Back home, I was treated with a piece of Macha Cheese Cake baked by student.... 
He loves to bake and I always get a chance to try!


  1. Oh dear!!! You had a problem with your leg once...just before we left for Aberdeen. Do be careful, people our age need to take extra care - hope you are ok now. That red tree is really beautiful!

    1. Oops...before YOU left for Aberdeen, I mean. Excuse the typo.

  2. OUCH, I am so sorry about your injury!! The red tree is gorgeous.

  3. Oh dear...hope your leg recovers soon. Is it the same one that you broke sometime ago?

  4. please take good care of your knee. did you both finish the rack of ribs? looks tasty!

  5. Take care and speedy recovery. The red tree looks really lovely. Wonder what tree is that. The matcha cheese cake looks tasty.

  6. Do take care. Sprained muscle is not little business. Could get worse if not rest and treated well.

    I have been to TGIF once and that was in KL. No outlet over here (yet).

  7. Guai guai take it easy ah... man man lai ok

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

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

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...
