My "Family" In Aberdeen

FEELS GOOD.. to feel young among the youngsters....

Staying in Aberdeen makes me wish that I am young again, to experience university life with the students.  Each day I see them, they are just staying around us, left, right, up and down.  LOL... We share our meals, inviting each other to come over, having the same interest, singing, playing badminton, bowling.... the list is endless!  After staying for so many weeks, these youngsters are like a family to me.  Auntie or not, I tend to forget my age when I am with them and I am so touched that they count me in as well!  LOL...
We have meals together, whether it is inside the house or outside...
My extended family from various countries....
Asian smiles....
Gathering at Woodbanks....
A talented student always entertain us with songs..
And his rendition of "Perfect" is indeed Perfect!!
Our favourite restaurant at all times!!

  2. I could see the fun & excitement for you being with these foreign Asian students. There is so much warmth and unity in them for being away from home. I still miss such good days living with Japanese and Korean students in the boarding school. The good memories are priceless till today.

  8. I think there is no age limit so you can always enrol and join your "family" in the uni. Never too old, age is just a number!

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?

Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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....

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
