"What's For Dinner, Mi?"

Went to fetch Andy from the bus station at 4.30pm... good to see him again after three weeks of absence... he looked so fatigue and tired when he came into the car and after talking to him for a moment, I realized that he didn't even greet me... "hi mum" or "mother" or "mi" or "mama." When I asked him, he said he was like blurred....still in dreamland... so exhausted because of an assignment last night that took him to finish only wee hours in the morning.

Pure exhaustion.... poor boy....

Now? Wow... after a clean up and shower, he was whistling just a moment ago and happily said, "Mi, what is for dinner?"
Here are the dishes for dinner, boy...

potato with minced meat
mistake! too much black sauce...

steamed fish...

french beans with garlic.. hahahaa
and ABC soup...

OK, going down for dinner now...come!


  1. A balanced homecooked meal with love, better than any restaurant dishes.. I like..

  2. The dishes are so typically 'gong fu' style. I thought the potato and onion dish is a secret recipe inherited from our grandmothers in a typical Cantonese family. I'm so proud to be a Cantonese (though the Cantons were called the Southern Barbarians during the last dynasty. Btw, Claire, are you Cantonese?

  3. Where's the pic of the ABC soup? I likey french beans.. with garlic! Yum :D

  4. virtualust: yes, yes.. fresh!

    inspiredmum: anyone can cook these.. hehee.. those are my limited choice...

    mingna: actually i m half teochiew but speak cantonese from young till now.. cos my mum is cantonese..thus the dishes also inherited from her.. :)

    merryn: soup still in the pot so i didnt take the pic.. all carrots, tomatoes, potatoes and pork bones.. hehehe.

  5. not bad .....not bad.... cooking seems improve a lot already :P

  6. Potato and minced meat is our favorite dish (both my girl and me). The french bean is what we had today and our soup for the day is 'fan kot'... hehehe

  7. chris: actually it got worse.. hahaha...

    kiasu: long time didnt boil fun kwot... good idea.. tomorrow i m going to the market.. see got the kwot or not..:)

  8. yerrr... looking at it at 1am makes my tummy growl...

  9. You cooked this?? I am so used to seeing the food you eat at restaraunts. Wow, you could open your own restaraunt! I wish I could taste it. What is the black sauce made of?

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

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
