Two Meet-Ups, Three Meals On A Beautiful Day

HOW I SPENT MY DAY.... 

Sacrificed my sleep, waking up earlier than usual and out from my house at 8am to First Garden to have a nice breakfast and most importantly, to meet up with my ex-colleagues, catching up with the latest "gossips" from one another.  LOL... Those days I used to rush back to the office after breakfast but it is so different now.  Eat with peace and leisure, enjoying every moment lingering at the coffeeshop with my gang and this only happens once awhile.... 
This piping hot of meehoon with fish cost RM8 now!
From those days when I was still working, it cost around RM5.50.....
What a difference... but then... once awhile, just eat and enjoy!
As Hokkien saying, "ku ku jip pai"  
LOL... 

After the meet-up with the gang, I went home and lazed around the laptop till my second meet-up with a blogger whom I got to know not too long ago... Her name is Irene Chan and she is a sweet young lady who is still working, unlike yours truly.  Actually she came to my blog and commented and I went over and somehow, I know she is Ipoh nang too... and that transpires our meet-up and we chose this place for our rendezvous.... 
Irene suggested this place O'Days and I am so glad she did...
It is my second time here in this place.... 
And there are much more varieties compared to the last time I came... 
I arrived first and she came soon after.. 
I could recognize her immediately when she entered and vice versa....
Well, easy only after all, which lady sits alone and which lady comes in alone, right?  LOL... 
Before we began our "questioning", we ordered some desserts over our chat... 
Since both of us had a good heavy breakfast, we just wanted something light... 
And we settled for these... quality kuehs... 
They cost RM1.50 each.. no joke!
Three of these... RM4.50...
Mini Otak Otak... RM2.50
And two glasses of tangerine... not sure how much...
Cos the tab was on Irene.... 
And for those who doesn't know Irene, here she is!
If curious, this is Her Blog.
Thank you Irene for taking off your precious time to meet Reanaclaire... 
And for the Sweet Temptation's Treat.... 
Yes, do keep in touch for more meet-ups, K!!
I thought I would be skipping dinner after those sweet desserts... 
But no, the temptation for fried rice was too great!
Ended up "walloping" a plate of my fried rice before I finally call it a Day....
*patting my tummy*
A very productive and foodful day indeed!

  1. Hahahah! Claire, you beat me to it. I have a few more minutes before I need to get ready for another meet-up with another friend. So I thought I'd check to see if you have a new post. It sure was a great time meeting you and getting to know you in person. Somehow it was like meeting an old friend, coz I already know quite a bit about you from your blogs.

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
