My Favorite Ways To Say Thanks

I love traveling, and I love food. Quite often I choose to travel to a destination just to sample the local cuisine. Of course, I wouldn’t be able to travel and enjoy all the gorgeous meals I’ve had without the hospitality of some wonderful people I’ve met. And when people do those lovely things for you, I love to say thanks in my own way. Here are some of the best ways I’ve found to say thank you:
Flowers
Sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers is a lovely way to say thank you when someone has put you up in their home. It takes time, effort and lots of extra cleaning and tidying to have a guest stay in your home. I really do appreciate all that extra work when I stay at a friend’s home or with my family. Arranging a flower delivery by Flowers For Everyone offers a token of thanks after I’ve left. It says I’m remembering having a lovely time.
Wine
When I am invited to a home-cooked dinner, I think it is polite to bring something for the table. Lots of people like to bring a bottle of wine. Not all my dinner parties include alcohol, though. I’m just as happy bringing the dessert! Sometimes it’s nice to bring a fruit basket. They always look so beautifully presented as well. It all depends on how healthy I’m trying to be!
Card
Sometimes when I’m on my travels, I find I’m offered extra help here and there. Most people are really generous with their time and go out of their way to make sure I’m comfortable. It’s really sweet, so I try to remember that with a thank you card. It’s always nice to receive a thank you after you’ve helped someone. I’ve even sent them to companies whose staff have gone the extra mile to make me feel welcome.   I love music and I will check out how much are keyboards are.  After purchasing one, I will learn up and dedicate a song to my love one!  That would make a great gift too!
Reciprocation
Of course the best way to say thanks is to reciprocate. If I’ve had a lovely meal with a friend, then I want to invite them to my home to enjoy the same. I love spending time with people. And best of all, I love a good meal! I do my best to cater to all tastes. I try to provide the same good accommodation when I can too.
Gift
If you know the person well that you want to thank, then you might be able to select the perfect gift. Perhaps they’re into horse riding? A crystal ornament of a horse can be a lovely way to say thanks. My musically minded friends always love it if I find them a rare recording of a much-loved artist. Gifts come in all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to spend a lot of money. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

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
