Johor Desserts And Roundup Trip

It has been more than two weeks stay in our new place... soon it is time for us to go back to our hometown...  both of us were really half hearted to leave Johor... only consolation is that we will be back again very soon!

Indeed it is very different comparing Ipoh and Johor... I mean the routine life that we have experienced... many of my friends asked me whether I would be "uprooting" myself from Ipoh to Johor... actually I do not know as yet...  I can adapt myself no doubt about that.... As I always used to say... Give me a Laptop and wifi and I will survive! hahahaha...

So what have we been doing for the past couple of weeks when we were there?  Needless to say.. everything has a balance... We ate a lot... exercised a bit... cleaned some... and travel much....

Here are some Johor desserts which are slightly different from where I was born...
Johoreans call this Ching Tong... 
Ipohians call it Ching Po Leong...
Ice Kacang with Cocoa as toppings...
Something different too!
 Dazzling Bubur Cha Cha....
Need to be shared!
Melon Sago Desserts...
Johor Rojak...
This one with the bunga jintan....
After all the food... 
We worked out almost everyday....
ahemm...correction.... at least I did it trice per week.... 
That sounds more like it, right???
Also relaxed a bit now and then.....
This picture needs no description...
As I said earlier...
Everything needs to be balanced....
Soon it is time for us to leave....
Bye Bye Johor....
Hello Ipoh....
Back to homeland!

  2. I am sure by now you will be missing Johor food and your boys. Then when you are in Johor, you will miss Ipoh food and your girl friends. That will keep you busy travelling to and fro. Hahaa...

  4. The food all looks very good! You need exercise for health, but not to lose weight! You are so nice and slim! Now, why are you having two different cities to live in? And going back and forth?

  9. In the end, you still refer to Ipoh as homeland, so I think you're not so ready to uproot yourself yet. I think, when you decide to stay in Johor for long term, better do it without really disposing of everything in Ipoh first.

    I've seen my milk mother (if you know what that means, nai ma) and my sis's milk mother uproot everything to move in with their kids in another state, only to get depressed after a few months and look for means to move back.

    They said the idea to live with their kids is great, but most of the time the kids are working and they are left alone anyway, and when they moved to a new place, all their friends are not within easy access.

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
