Handy Andy On The Sew

Andy brought back his "stinky" and tattered comforter from Penang... but now it is not "stinky" nor tattered anymore.. he dumped it inside the washing machine, put lots of "TOP" powder and softener and let it washed for more than 30 minutes, from stinky to nice smelling fresh aroma, just like new if not for one side which is badly tattered...

I told him to get a new one but he quickly said, "NO, NO... This comforter is the best!" Yes, his comforter has been his bedtime companion for more than five years already... ever faithful.. the older it gets, the more comfortable it becomes!  hahahaa....

Well... tattered and torn at the sides... I told him to get the needle ready with the thread so that I could have it sewn... (I never had a sewing machine before)  but Andy told me that he would like to try hand-sewing it himself... pheww.... how wonder-ful to hear that!  
so while he is at work, mum here gets busy with my iPhone... 
for me, threading the needle is a chore...
but not for him, he can easily do it...
I taught him the big running stiches..
so that work will be finished fast....
but he didn't listen to me.... 
to my surprise, his stitches were small and neat....
While I meddled with my pc, he did his sewing quietly...
Sew.... and sew.... and sew.......
till it was all done!!
GOOD JOB, SON!!
and now.... "Can you do that for mama's blanket too???"
 
After all the sewing had been done,I thought he wouldn't want to see another needle again..
Instead.... he remarked...
"Mom, I think I went into the wrong choice...
I should have taken up sewing instead of engineering....."
*HUH?*

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

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....

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...
