Home Is Where Our Hearts Belong...

Home is where our hearts are?  Perhaps I should say this..  where there is food, inside or outside the house, we are joined together...  :)

I took off on Monday to have a long weekend with my kids and for once, I woke up early to go marketing.  Aaron joined me as a "carrier"... yes, he shall carry the weight off my shoulders while in the market... hahahaha...

Before going into the market, we had a light breakfast at a coffeeshop... too bad, forgot to take the curry noodles shared by both of us... and after our marketing, we went straight home and blew the trumpet!  LOL..  The rest of the gang woke up and we went to old town for our lunch....

By the time we reached home, it was almost 2pm and into the kitchen I went... and with some help here and there, we managed to scoop up a dinner by 6pm.... Eat and eat... thus the saying.. Food is where our hearts are....
For starters... ahemmm...
Turnip soup...
Someone told me that they are anti-oxident... 
 My sister "donated" some curry chicken.... 
and I gave her some soup in return... hahaha...
 My kids like "Siew Bak Choy" and I added in a packet of enoki mushrooms..
Made a mistake, added a bit too much water...
 My girl requested for steamed fish topped with Tomyam paste...
I put lots of shredded ginger to take away whatever smell...
 Bought a steamed salted chicken from the famous shop in town...
I cut it up... but the cutting up process was kind of messy!
Ok, here they are anyway.... 
Not nicely arranged yet.. 
 Someone looks like he was already drooling by the time the dishes were laid on the table...
And the "drooler" ended up washing the plates after the meal....
hahahaaa...

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
