Tropical Fruits And A Homecooked Meal Before Departure

Leaving Ipoh without enjoying durians is unheard of.... due to some recommendation from friends, some from FB to confirm this too, we came upon this special uncle with one leg.  He is well known for selling quality durians in Ipoh Garden...he sells at the pavement of one of the shops along the Shell Petrol station..
He doesn't have many durians... but I heard most of them are good taste!
Among durians, he also sells mangosteens and duku langsat..
The fruits are now in season...

My boys patiently awaiting for Uncle to choose the durians...
 
Uncle is now performing his task....
 While Andy is looking on.....
Uncle asked him nice or not each time he opens one... 

Soon all are opened and ready to be packed... 
We bought 4 for RM37.... cheap!
Before my boys left Ipoh, a homecooked meal was prepared ....
This is their special request dish....
With durians as desserts and a homecooked meal, 
I hope they find this homecoming trip a worthwhile trip!
Till we meet again... 
Not sure when but I hope it will be soon! :)

  4. Bet that was the best meal they had when they were home. Nothing can ever beat mum's cooking, that's the bottomline. Back to missing them again, eh? At least I get to see my girl once a week, not too bad.

  13. Hmmm, I wonder why u don't cook for your family when they go back home. My mum makes sure we have home cooked food every time we go home as to her, eating out is unhealthy and expensive. That is how she shows her love for us.. 😍

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
