okok by then you would have noticed it's always Kevin had this Kevin had that. The train ticket to Edinburgh was a friggin SIXTY TWO pounds=( that's why Steph didnt join us in the end. We've been spending alot on travelling lately. so i basically packed sandwiches everyday to save cost.
So the coffee was a treat from Kev. Gaelic refers to a language origin, like Irish is to Ireland. Gaelic coffee is coffee with Scotch Whiskey, my experience with Irish coffee at Penang's The Ship made this alcoholic coffee relatively palatable. not too bitter so to say as one would expect from alcohol.
ok to be fair i bought this - from an indian kebab shop where u can get a cheaper versions of the scottish food. It's a pig blood free variation of the black pudding. Kevin was saying we should blend both black and white pudding together to make a Michael Jackson pudding. took me awhile to get the joke.
love the oaty taste of the white pudding, lots of barley in it so it's high in fibre and very chewy.
no, roti jala is not a Scottish food. It's Malaysian! But I've just came across this dish when I was browsing through the blog, Rasa Malaysia. And Cho Ee was showing me his roti jala making tool. So he decided to make roti jala for this christian fellowship picnic that evening...and I shamelessly decided to stay just one more night to see the "legendary" roti jala in the making.
3 spoon fulls of flour + 1 egg, and sprinkles of chili powder, tumeric powder, salt and cornflour. add water till its runny.
then draw the number " 8" and finish it off with a circle. the drips of batter should be interjoined so that they will peel off as a whole when cooked. dont even have to add oil to the wok.fold it in halves twice, and voila!served with daal or any curry ( ready cooked curry from Sainsbury)met2 Taiwanese cute girls at the picnic. Hui Yu is doing Musical Therapy, I was kinda intrigued and pestered her with questions. Basically the patient is given the choice of a range of instrument and plays whatever he/she wants. It doesnt matter even if the patient does not know how to play an instrument, all they have to do is express themselves, even if this means playing a nonsensical tune.
the therapist's job is to improvise the patient's playing and try to make a connection through the music. They do not attempt to interpret the patient's playing. And the treatment regime varies with individual patient.
For autistic children, they think in a fixed pattern, they need security of a routine lifestyle. So the treatment aims to increase their flexibility, by playing them variations of a particular favourite song that the child is familiar with. ( some background research is required here to identify such a song.)
would have loved to learn more from her. music therapy. hmm. only 5 universities in the UK offers this course. Hui Yu is studying in Queen Margerette University.
