A Visit To The Gordon Highlanders Museum, Aberdeen

One of His highlights *not mine* is the Gordon Highlanders Museum here in Aberdeen.  My BIL is all for history, especially those war memorials.... visiting museums is the main itinerary for his trip to UK.  Before he came, he already did a lot of research on where to go and places to visit. 

And so here we are on one fine weekend...

The Gordon Highlanders Museum... it is based in Aberdeen and it celebrates the story of the Gordon Highlanders which were active from 1794 to 1994 and it is a 5 star Scottish Tourist Board attraction, according to Wikipedia.
Walking up the entrance to the museum.... 
At the entrance, the two guys bought their tickets to go in....
While the two ladies made their way to the cosy cafe..... 
We ordered a light breakfast..... 
Lentils soup and tuna sandwich...  around 6 pounds... 
I was not a Big Fan of soup before... 
But now, I definitely AM!
As long as it is not milky creamy based, I am fine with any type of soup... 
While waiting for the guys, we walked around the gift shop.... 
One hour later, they exit from their tour.... 
My BIL gave full praises for the guided tour... 
Definitely worth the visit, he said... 
hmmm.... 
And before we left, a Salute to the heroes....

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...
