Hit And Injured!

I did not have time to post this up till today... but I had time taking some shots of my injury....

which part of the body had this injury?

I think many of you cannot guess which part of my body I had this big patch of blue black... it was actually swollen and it was caused by a tambourine I hit on myself ...

After the singing and dancing on that night, I felt something swollen on my thigh. True enough when I took off my long pants, the right side was swollen and it was already turning bluish....

This picture was taken one day after.... my kids were shocked!! Me too! Next time I better not be carried away by the music and hit myself too hard.....


  1. What is that tambourine made of? Iron???

  2. Wah, tambourine, luckilly not Bruce Lee's nunchaku....LOL!

  3. Claire, I am sorry but I really couldn't help laughing. It was caused by the tambourine that you hit on your thight while dancing and singing. By the way, you should use a cloth to wrap some ice cube and rub it. It helps to reduce the swollen.

  4. Well, we have a saying here. If someone is too hard on themselves, we say they are beating themselves up. But you actually did beat yourself up!! It a good thing you weren't playing the drums!! Wow! Talk about getting carried away by the music! You didn't even feel it at the time? I think you really throw yourself into everything you do, a lover of life!!

  5. OMG! Thtat sure look nasty! And caused by a tambourine?O.O

  6. Old age...blood circulation not so good liao, or some medication you're taking?

  7. mingna: looks like made of iron, right? my kids didnt believe me when i told them my thigh was swollen.. only when we came back, i showed them, they exclaimed! hahaha..

    pete: that one needs stitches liow!! hahaha..

    sheohyan: i put the chengkwai sui...

    ginny: yes, i really didnt feel it that time... only felt when everything was over.. lol..

    peah: yes, seriously! not abused! :p

    lina: yes, the tambourine! i must have hit it too hard on myself to get the sound out..

    stp: talking about age again.. sigh.. cannot deny we r past age hor?

  8. just need tien chat for the blood circulation..activize is as good.

  9. Ouch!!! Pain? coz sometimes even with a big patch there is no pain whatsoever... will surely take time to disappear..

  10. May be you got too carried away with the cheng cheng cheng, ok lah as long as you enjoyed it,kan?

  11. wenn: i applied the zheng kwai sui.. my son rubbed in for me.. so now it is ok liow..

    just: this is blood clot.. so need to massage to let it disperse..

    eugene: yeah lo.. worth it! haha...

  15. Aijor, must be hurting. I remembered the last time i had such a big purple patch when i back from HK. Got hit by the luggage

  16. Claire: If you knew it earlier, guess it will help with ice. How come tambourine also can hurt you so badly? Guess you are too enjoying, so beat even harder! Get well soon!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
