From San Francisco To Aberdeen

HERE THEY COME!!

My sister and her husband landed in Aberdeen in the evening after a five hours transit in Dublin.  Their journey from San Francisco took 12 hours plus 5 hours transit and then another one hour plus flight to Aberdeen, meaning total of nearly 19 hours!  Almost the same number of hours as mine... and all the time I thought it is nearer for them to fly over.  Anyway.... all is good, they arrived safely and this is all that counts.

The very next morning after a good night's rest, Aaron dropped us at Union Square and we had a good walk around the mall.  Had a simple lunch at Nando's, I was surprised when they told me that they had never tried Nando before in US.  hahaha..
One whole chicken with two sides and two bottomless soft drinks cost 20.95 pounds.. 
Relaxing lunch... 

Then from Union Square, we took a long walk back to our place... 
It was drizzling at certain parts... 
And we stopped here and there to take pictures... 
Weather was 5 degrees celsius...
Freezing indeed but someone doesn't look like it!

  2. One whole corn on the cob, that's the way to do it! The place in my blog today, they give you a spoonful of canned Ligo sweet corn kernels. So cheapskate, no class at all.

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...
