My Memorable Toasts And Cheers!

There are many occasions where we drink to good health and happiness.  Every year I make it a point to get a few nice bottles of wine to keep in the house and come every occasion where the family gathers, I would bring out a bottle to commemorate the special event.  We love the cheers as we click our glasses and wishing everyone something good!

I remember a few special functions where families gather around the table for a reunion gathering.  This does not happen often because my siblings are living apart from one another.  We have our own families now that we are getting older and our kids are grown.  But we make it a point to have a family reunion at least once a year to gather for a nice wonderful dinner together.
This is one happy reunion that I had in Sacramento.  My mother prepared a very scrumptious dinner and invited a few close friends to come over for the gathering.  Just look the the table full of food, glorious food and our happy cheers to one another!
Let's drink to good health and peace on earth! 
When I was in Las Vegas, I tried my first cocktail offered by my brother-in-law, it is called Mathai.  He told me that I would love to drink this once I have tried it!  It is a fruity cocktail with a dash of rum, vodka, tequila etc etc.  Well, that was what I was told and true enough, I love it!
We ordered three glasses and coming to think of it now, I wish I could have a glass by my side! 
We ordered a few pieces of honey lemon chicken to go with the cocktail...
Well, that was my kind of celebration I have yearly...
Now that my kids have grown, they are welcomed to drink a bit here and there...
Anything taken moderately is good for our bodies, right?
 Cheers, everyone!  
Christmas is around the corner....
Let us wish one another Good Health and Happiness!

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...
