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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
