My Humble Dinner On Dumpling Day

On medical leave today because I spent the earlier part of my sleep coughing and coughing... something sharp seems to be poking at my throat so much so that the tears came if I retrained from coughing. My sleep was really disturbed and I told myself that I really need to go and pay a visit to the doctor the very next day...

I went to the Government clinic in Kampong Simee during lunch time and I was expecting a big crowd since it is Monday... but to my astonishment, there were just a few patients....
Just a mere seven before me....and everything was done up so fast... 
By 2.20pm, I was out from the clinic already.. only a half hour wait...
and I went home with a bottle of cough mixture...
I have yet to take a sip... yet to.... 
As for my humble dinner, it is just some dry noodles made in Sitiawan....
Add in some meat and greens to make the soup tasty a bit.... 
Since it is Dumpling Day, the meal must be complete with one....
My sister gave me one of these.... 
I called it "Hoong Tau Kan Sui Choong"  (Red Bean Dumpling)
It would taste great if only there is some gula melaka syrup...
But for tonight, a bit of sprinkled brown sugar is satisfactory enough...
 Yummmss!
Enjoy your Dumplings, folks!

  4. Hello Claire,

    Get well soon! Haha, I did not even know that it is dumpling day until I read your post. The red bean dumpling looks tasty. I can eat it just like that without any sugar or kaya.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
