San Francisco Chinatown Lunch

After three days in San Francisco city, I think I have lost some weight! Two reasons... I walked a lot and ate much less than I normally did in Malaysia... LOL..

Everywhere I go, I walk...and walk..blocks after blocks, opening my mouth often to ask about the way... and the latest discovery is Grant Street where the San Francisco Chinatown is...the place where Jackie Chan made a movie here too!

From the hotel where I am staying to Chinatown, it took me around twenty minutes to reach.. a very nice walk in the cooling weather, I have no complaints...
My pictures are not that attractive, I need to say..
Something very different from what others did...
along the Chinatown...
we were actually looking for chinese restaurants..
heard that the Peking duck is famous there...
and we just went into the first restaurant we came upon...
It was quite full when we entered..
but by the time we left, it was almost empty 
except for a few tables not in this picture..
we ordered these.....
and half Peking Duck...
which came with just the crispy skin and small pieces of meat..
oh gosh! surely not enough to feed me?
we chose the pancake to be eaten with the Peking duck
 and these reminded me of capati in Malaysia!
feeling not enough, we ordered these prawn dim sum...
And for the two of us.. the bill came to an astonishing $59usd!
Wow..I was thinking..for this amount of money
I could have a nice feast for some 10 people or more!
LOL....

  8. Now you are eating Chinese food as we know it in America.
    Har gow or Xiā jiǎo (shrimp/prawn dumplings) are my favorite with chili sauce! Here in Honolulu we have many Chinese regional choices plus local Hawaiian-mix style. Hope someday you visit here. Sand Francisco is the best city!

  10. If in Australia, i think it will cost around $40 and the quantity of food will be much more than that. Anyway, like my mum always says, "not many times lah".

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
