The Good Old Days And Now

During my childhood days, I remember playing Card games with my neighbours, all of us were not from rich families, so naturally, we made our games from cardboards then. We were very cooperative, helping each other, colouring the cards and spent a lot of time doing the numbers and creating our own patterns. One of the cardboard games is bingo.  The fun part was when the winner had all the numbers called out, he/she would repeatedly shout 'BINGO' a number of times excitedly, so loud that we used to get ticked off by our mothers.  Those were the good old days! 

When I started working, there were times when my elder sibling would take me to a club for Some board games once a week. I can still remember it was a Thursday each week and I was always looking forward to it. We really enjoyed ourselves very much, the chances of winning was high, but besides the snowball prizes, Some of the board games were very interesting and fun, play, we enjoyed watching and listening to the compere making jokes every now and then.  Besides the games, we had a good time bonding with other people in the club,  we really enjoyed ourselves and each event brought laughter, well, it was very all very hilarious then.

But with the new millennium days, I am now hooked to the computer, friends called me a "computer addict."  I cannot survive without a computer, literally saying.  Most of my time I stay connected to the internet whether I am at home or in the office.  I love to surf websites and weblogs, writing my journals and some time back, I was "hooked" onto online games.  There are some days that I could not sleep and I log in to just like to play for fun, just to get back the nostalgic feeling of my younger days.  There are times when I check out for online bingo but eventually, I ended up more awake than sleepy instead... 



Talking about online games, one of my friends now prefers to stay at home and plays games on her iPad.  Her kids are all grown up now and away from home and she told me that she is having a time of her life now, relaxing and once awhile she ends up buying some online lotto tickets for fun.  She said, "You'll never know, I may strike one day and then I will take you along on a cruise adventure!"  LOL...  Well, online games might be interesting and as long as we know where our limits are, these games bring around adverse effects if we do not have self control.  I now this friend of mine is very cautious with money and as long as she does not go overboard, she is safe as she is now.  As the saying goes, it is time to unwind and have pleasure after a long day of pressure. :)

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... 

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...
