German Christmas Market, Glasgow

Hey All!... I am Still alive despite the snowy weather that has been peppering the quiet streets of byres road. It dosen't snow much over here but this year seems to be a little different. 7 weeks to exams and you can probably guess why I haven't been posting often but I thought I shall take some time off the books and post some pictures from the weekend visit to the German Xmas market at St Enoch's. Gosh its been 2 years i think since i came to this little fair tuck at the south end of Buchanon street.

Well.. Most of these fairs are pretty standard and sell the usual christmasy stuff like artificial snow, xmas lightings, xmas trees, blah blah blah and lotsa candies which kids love.

There we go... a candy shop with lotsa lotsa candies. I used to love these alot especially the cola ones. Not that I don't like them anymore but rather I've found more interesting stuff to eat

Food's the biggest attraction for me at such markets and the main reason why I have come all the way from the comfort of my room to -4 in the open.. brrr...

Goulash and potatos..

Some yummy yummy German sausage. I had one. Super duper oily

And I had another beef burger.

To be honest, the food was ok only and definately was overcharged but it was the novelty of eating out in the cold and doing the whole xmasy activity that made it memorable.

Before we made our way out, we stumbled upon this!!!!!!

A huge candy store selling chooclates and nuts. As you can see they are really overpriced. 8 pieces of grapes for 2 pounds ... hmm... IT WAS WORTH IT... SO GOOD !!!!! I bought a strawberry for C on K's recommendation

Sugar coated nuts. Got Aa a packet.

More yummy ginger bread cookies with sugary frosting

Can't wait for Xmas and the boxing day sales.

Rice Wars III: The Bowl Strikes BacK!!!

Alamaks... Just when I thought the rice bowl would never be set upon my table again, I was proven wrong. The moment the waitress ask us how many bowls of rice we wanted, an air of suspicion surround the table and we were presented with the horrible truth.. . Sighz... (See Part I and Part II here)

Align Centre

Complimentary soup. Less salty today and more "gum" bitterrishh?

Aa's favourite Yam duck. Ok la ..

Oysteregg? haha not quite. Some sort of teochew clam egg... ok only la..

Beef Horfun. C's request. This was good. A tad oily

Papaya Soup Dessert. Nice way to emulsify all that fatiness.

Wait... no favourite dish for myself?? ....... NO ... because my favourite rice was ruined...... it was so heavily pressed into the claypot bowls that it somehow lost its fluffiness and tasted dry.... Sianess... At least there was horfun..

Been really busy with studying... so fewer and fewer post coming in but watch out for the Christmas postings coming up. Aa is whipping up a feast.!!!!

Bar Soba

A quick post from one of my dinner socials a couple of weeks back at Bar Soba. I have omitted the food because they were really not up to mark. The deserts on the other hand were ompfalicious.

Above is a mojito vanilla icecream topped with fresh berries. It certainly packed the right combination of alcoholic kick and minty essence to conclude my meal

Some of the others had the vanilla cheesecake. One of the better ones around in Glasgow as most mentioned that it was dense, flavourful and was made even better but the rich chocolate ice cream.
