Dating Night Special At Miller & Carter, Aberdeen

MIA! Been missing from blogging for the past few days... it has been 10 years over since I started to blog, first few years, I was very faithfully writing away... I am still wondering How I was able to do that during my working years and not now when I am retired..... queer, right?

Alright, let me get back to the next post..... according to my photo gallery, this post will be on a steak post, this time we had to make reservations few days in advance.  Miller & Carter is the name and we started walking from our place to town at 5.30pm.  Our reservation was at 6pm and it took us nearly half an hour walking to reach.  That is what I like about Aberdeen... eat more and yet not worrying about gaining weight!

It was a Thursday Date night, the 3 course meal cost is special on this day.  So the 6 of us went for the Date night special though only one couple is actually "dating."  The rest of us just wanted to try the special on this evening.  Not cheap though... One person is like paying 33 pounds!

The meal started off with appetizer...
Chicken and Duck thigh for Aaron...
Mine was Calamari..
Then the main meal.... salad was served in a wooden bowl....
And fried sweet potato chips...
Aaron's order... Rum steak or something like that...
Medium done and Aaron complained it was a bit dry.....
Mine was Sirloin Steak...
Which was done to my expectations.... medium done, tender and soft....
I gave some of this to Aaron since his meat was not as nice as mine....
We had a glass of red wine for 5 pounds...
As for desserts, we chose the Sticky Toffee Pudding since this is a Scottish dessert...
Warm Caramelized Pudding.....
Brulee....
Cheese cake with chocolate toppings...
The special night for the 6 of us....
Indeed a very costly night too...
For that kind of money, it is enough to cover one week's grocery!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
