Surviving Without A Gadget

Let's talk about our modern gadgets today.  What are the most important gadgets to us these days? Well, for someone like me with three grown up kids, I never leave home without my faithful handphone by my side.  Whenever I go for a walk, I'll always have my smartphone with me; firstly, I can snap photos around by using my smartphone and share them on various social media sites and secondly and most important of all, this is my source of communication with my kids.  Other than that, gadgets like iPad, laptop, desktops, they are my important items in my life now.

But as important as it is, I realized that sometimes you have to be disconnected from these devices to be connected with your loved ones. And so one day, I decided to take a little timeout from all devices for ONE hour to just live my life device-less, just like the good old times.

It was quite difficult for me as I have been pretty much dependent on my gadgets for everything in my daily life, but having an hour to myself without any devices with me gives me time to not only cook an extra dishes for my children when they're back for visit (as I have no reason to stop cooking just so that I could snap photos and share them on social media sites) but I also managed to play longer with my dog and make conversations with people whom I neglected to say hello to when I do my daily walking routine to the park.

An hour off from all your tech device. I think it's a pretty cool thing to do daily. I've done it and felt that I'm much more connected to the world than I ever before. Below are some suggestions what we should do so as to build up a bonding with our love ones. :)

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....

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

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...
