At Raemoir Garden Center And Drum Castle, Aberdeen

FROM CRATHES CASTE, we proceeded to Drum Castle on the way back.  Drum Castle is built way back in the 13th century, one of the oldest tower in Scotland.  Surrounded by the 18th century gardens, it was the home of Alexander Forbes Irvine and today, the castle is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and is open during the summer months.  The castle is also open to weddings and corporate functions and that includes local events such as classic car rallies and musical fetes as well.

This time we did not go into the castle, as the saying goes, you see one, you see all.  We just walked around the grounds, took some pictures.  Oh yeah, we stopped for our lunch at Raemoir Garden Center at Banchory on the way.  A very delightful lunch, I can say.... Cold weather always make me hungry every hourly!
At the Drums Castle.... 
Making my footprints....
And his as well.... 
In and out of the grounds.... 
All granite and stones.... 
Much smaller than the Crathes Castle
At the gardens where beautiful flowers were grown....
Love their combination of colours...
And at the Raemoir, I had Lentil soup.... 
And I shared chicken sandwich with my sister.... 
Beef Stovies.....
For the tour guide... Salmon with condiments... 
Food is quite cheap, less than 30 pounds sterling... 
When all the plates are cleaned, our smiles give credit to the food...

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
