Pre CNY Lunch With Friends At Delight Restaurant

IT IS FEBRUARY... THAT MEANS I HAVE RETIRED FOR A YEAR NOW... 365 days have passed, the day when I retired is still so clear in my mind. I don't miss the office work at all but I do miss my colleagues who have worked with me before. Even though we do not work together at the same floor, we have so much fun being together with one another, during our tea time and lunch time gatherings.  That, I would never forget....

With this apps group, we still keep in contact with one another and when someone mentioned a gathering to commemorate a "Close Work Lunch" aka "Sau Koong Chau"... everyone readily agreed to the suggestion.  Never mind whether we are working or non-working, we really look forward to our getting together session!
And so our gathering is held at Delight Restaurant...
Refreshments sponsored by one of us retirees... 
While waiting for the rest to arrive, these was what we did.... 
*welfie-ing* and *yam-sing-ing*
These condiments were served as appetizers....
Our first dish!  
Loe Sang with stripes abalone...
Followed by the "Lang Poon" aka "Cold Dish"
The first dish itself has us half full already!
And we had steamed fish....
Special Kai Lan... Steamed stem with crispy fried green leaves....
And this dish appeared again... the one I had just few days ago.....
Last and not least, my ex-colleagues whom have been working together with me for umpteen years...
Yes, our group is getting smaller and smaller...
Some are being transferred and some have retired...
Anyway, big or small group, it does not matter...
It is the present that counts... 
And I hope we have more of these Food Sessions for joy and laughter!

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....

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

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...
