Feelings, Nothing More Than Feelings...

Life is such... When I read my son, Andy's blog just now, I also felt a pang of sadness. He wrote about missing everyone he loves as he is going back to Penang tomorrow and he is feeling sort of lonely and homesick even before he leaves. Saying goodbye is always a bit sad...

Over at dinner just now, I told him about mine too... tomorrow is a new day, going back to office with lots of work piling up is not a thing to look forward to.... After a week of lazing around doing practically nothing, work is the last thing on my mind... (yes, I admit I am getting lazier and I am trained to be one...)

Life is such, as I said. We can complain, we can mourn, we can grumble or groan...

Coming to think of it now, I wonder why I must feel this way... why make myself sad... why don't I think in a happier positive note? Shouldn't I should be thankful I have a job to go to tomorrow, colleagues to be together with, a salary to take care of my love ones, a car to take me wherever I want ...etc etc... the list of goodness goes on and on....

Yes, I miss my boys when they are not around... the house is very quiet without their presence. Meanwhile, it is back to normal life, knowing in just matter of time, we will be together again....

  11. Thank God for blogging,when we are sad we can rant it and vend it here........

    I think souls like us in this age range, should have known what life's is but then again when we thought we knew what life was, life keeps teaching a many many more new lessons,,,,,,,,, so we keep looking forward to what more life has to offer, be it good or sad,,, life goes on

  12. Manglish: as Tekkaus said, this is part and parcel of life, one day we will lead our own separate lives, with or without our love ones beside us. As long as we continue to love one another, this is all that counts...


    Eugene: yes, even at our age, we are still learning to adapt to life, we experience new changes and phases as days go by.. maybe this sums up the reason why life is indeed interesting and precious to each and every one of us..

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
