A Walk At Duthie Park Winter Garden, Aberdeen

FLOWERS LOVER...

Definitely not me, I mean I am not one who knows about gardening, flowers or planting.  I only see and admire them... "ooohh... ahhhh... "  That's me... but not one who have knowledge like my friend, Florence has.  She knows almost everything in this Winter Garden, she gave me a guided tour, what these flowers are called, the leaves that lives on air... etc. etc... oh dear, now I forget almost everything already! 

Alright, what was I babbling about?  Well, one fine morning or was it noon... despite of her daily busyness, Mary took us to David Welch Winter Gardens at Duthie Park, it is one of Europe's largest indoor gardens and Scotland's third most visited gardens.  It boasts a beautiful floral paradise all year round, with many rare and exotic plants on show from all around the world.  Entrance is free and my friend, Florence was the happiest lady the moment she entered into the Gardens!  LOL...
I only know know to get my photos taken only... 
When it comes to names, this student failed terribly.... 

I don't know what these flowers are called... not even one of them... 
Florence, I am so sorry, my memory is really bad!
I only know they are simply fascinating and beautiful... 
Duthie Park Winter Garden is worth making a visit to!

  2. What beautiful festival! Talking about winter, it was the Winter Solstice Festival yesterday. I guess you did not get to eat those tang yuan glutinous rice balls there...unless our friend, Mary did make some?

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
