Pre-Chinese New Year Gathering At Mun Choong Restaurant, Ipoh

EACH YEAR WE COLLEAGUES GATHER TOGETHER TO HAVE A "STOP WORK LUNCH" also known as SAU KOONG CHAU in Cantonese.... Though a few of us have retired, we still anticipate and look forward to seeing each other before the Chinese lunar year ends.  This year is no different, exactly one week from now is the Chinese New Year and before that happens, our group organized a get-together.

Thanks to the modern technology of group chatting in smart phones, our plan went on schedule and this year, we had our gathering at Mun Choong Restaurant just this afternoon.  Our theme for this year is RED!  *Ang Ang* as in Hokkien dialect.... and it was a really fun and enjoyable meal, meeting up with my ex-colleagues again for this auspicious season.  From the pictures below, our group seems to be getting smaller in size.... We miss one friend who couldn't make it at the last minute and we hope that she will be able to make it after the Chinese New Year.  Yes, we already planned ahead... our next meal will be in Yellow... LOL...

And now.. pictures of the food and my lovely friends in Red... all look so vibrant joyful....  ahemmm... 
Both of us were the early birds... so we captured a picture of us proving so... LOL... 
And the rest came soon after.... 
Our first dish... a combination of this and that in sweet plum sauce... 
And as we stood up and used the chopsticks to mix everything together,
we wished Good Wishes to ourselves... LOL... 
After our appetizer, the Marinated Pork Ribs is served... 
Steamed Ginger Chicken...
Kailan with yummy Yam...
hhhmmm... what shall I call this?
Lastly and not least, their signature Beancurd... 
THE ANG-ANG LADIES!
YES, EVERYTHING WAS GOOD... 
We ended our gathering wishing everyone...
SUN LEEN FAI LOK
*A HAPPY NEW YEAR*

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
