Intoxicated In Balik Pulau, Penang

There is only one main road and we parked our car right in front of a friend's nursery.  First time meeting her and she is such a nice and friendly lady.  Through her, we managed to taste the best durians because her family has a durian orchard.  :)
 Admiring some greens while waiting for our durians.. :)
While browsing around, I was telling myself...
"I gonna do some gardening when I retire.....
I like looking at the greens... 
They soothe my "computer" eyes....  
Then suddenly...
My eyes rested on these here!
Durians right in front of my eyes!
My friend is the creative one...
hahahaaa....
Balik Pulau Durians....
Pure Bred Ones......
Alas... I am a very small eater.... 
Just a few seeds....
And I kept *burping* left and right... 
*Excuse me*
Now I know why some durians are called XO...

  1. I had a few seeds too when I was in Kuching...and I kept burping after that. I don't usually burp, one. Terrible.

  2. The durian really looks good. Though a durian lover, I also cannot take a lot at one time.

  10. OMGGGGG!

    What kind of durians are these? I've been to Balik Pulau before to get Red Prawn (Ang Heh/Udang Merah) but I also know they have different types of cultivars over there, rare and good stuff like Koh Soo Koon (which has no seeds at all and sells for RM 50 per small durian).

    Lucky you, I'll love to go to Balik Pulau again.

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
