A Hike Up To Donnottar Castle, Stonehaven

TIME TO LOOSEN UP...

After the Fish n Chips, we shed off our calories by walking up to the Dunnottar Castle in Stonehaven.
At the foot of the hill leading up to the castle...
And we made Hip Hop Jump at the entrance... 
And the walk started here... 
Freezing cold for us ladies.... from top to bottom, left to right, covered... 
From one side from the cliff overlooking to this castle to the left... 
Love the beautiful scenic from the place we stood... 
I remember the last time I came in October last year, this was not covered... 
I mean there was no wooden barriers.... 
We have to walk up this trail to the castle... 
Up and up we went... 
One lane on the left led down to the beach... 
We did not venture to the beach... too much for us... 

 From where we stood at another side of the cliff.... 
Dunnottar at the background...  
It was indeed a long walk against the wind....
By the time we returned to our car, we yearned for food again!
Shall we or shall we not.....

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
