Seven At Sam Po, Ipoh

My big kids are back for the long weekend! Time really flies, right? Every now and then we seem to be back together as a family but in actual fact, it is around one month since we last saw each other.  Moments like these are pretty rare nowadays, we have to adjust to each other vacation's and semester break.   Even if it is only a short four days of togetherness, there is never a dull moment when we are together...

Food brings the family closer.. hahahaa... when we talk about food, our eyes kind of "sparkle"... I guess it is in our genes or in their genes, whatever... we love eating outside (since yours truly rarely cooks but I DID ... er... once... )  hahahaa...   

Okay, back to my present post, one of our meals were taken in Sam Po in Ipoh Garden East.

Part of the "contingent" at Sam Po...
There were seven of us... 
And we ordered six dishes....

Some greens ....for my mom!

  5. All the food looks very delicious to me.....mmmm. I wish I know how to cook that brinjal dish. Looks really good. And for RM91? That's cheap! If I can get such good food at that price here, I think I will close down my kitchen and not cook at all.....haha.

    It's really wonderful to see that all your children can be back together every once in a while. Yes, must really treasure those times cos they won't last. It will get less once they have family of their own. Then you become busy again....haha. But good busyness :D Take care and hope you have a lovely week. I'm praying hard that you will retire early so that you will come here again soon :D

  15. I think 91 for 7 is very affordable too. Here it is at least 20 per pax for a sit down dinner like this. I like the beancurd and petola gourd dish.

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
