My Quiet Christmas 2015

CHRISTMAS DAY 2015!
 My most quiet Christmas moment... year after year we entered a different phase... changes in life... This is the year I retired for good, once and for all... This is the year my sons are not with me, one hundreds of miles away and one thousands of miles away in another continent...

From the year I started blogging, that is 2008, life is always not the same anymore... year by year, there are new changes in my life... and each year is a bonus and I am really thankful for everything that comes my way... my daily life is fulfilling... be it peace, joy, pain, hurts, happiness, contentment, I shall be thankful for each day....

An ecstatic moment as I dug out my Christmas posts....
Christmas Greetings....

My life is surrounded by beautiful people... 
my kids, my family, my friends from all over... 
though they are not always by my side, 
I am very grateful that...
I am OFTEN on their mind as they are in mine..... 
BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!

  3. Though your kids are not around to celebrate Christmas with you, think on a brighter side that you are surrounded by great friends who cares for you. Nice flashback. God Bless.

  4. A quiet Christmas of looking back, looking around and inwards. Even though some of your kids are not with you, you all are united in love and thoughts. Every year will bring a new chapter in your life. Merry Christmas and wonderful weekend!

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

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....

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...
