Food For The Unwell - Mee Suah

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I AM HOME SICK...

Not the actual "homesick" sick but at home feeling unwell... Not sure when the last time was, if I were still working, I would have taken two days medical leave and rest at home.  Alas, now every day is a holiday, so sick or no sick, I can rest all I like.

Started with "itchiness" in the throat, stinging and dryness and I filled myself with water and more water.  Water means fruit fuices, lime, hot oatmeal and anything to soothe the dryness... Suddenly appetite was also gone.. the taste buds vanished in thin air... Rice is out of the question, I want to eat something oil-less, clear and soupy....
Late in the evening, my girl bought this home... 
She said this brand is nice.... 
Yes, very familiar brand, I think I ate this when I was a young girl... 
Each bundle tied up with a thin red thread.... 
Would one be enough?
No, I ended up making two for each person... 
Put in lots of greens, meatballs, minced meat and two lighten beaten eggs....
Might not look appetizing but I "walloped" them all.... 
No appetite is an understatement... LOL... 
Oh, I want to get well real fast... 
I haven't even TASTE any Durians as yet!
huhuhuuuu...

  1. Whoah! I also ate from the same box of mee suah with the old God of Longevity brand. I remember this well before Maggi Mee flooded the market. Now I wanna go and buy one box to cook for myself. My servant used to thrown in one egg with half cube of chicken stock. Presto!

    I would advise you to buy a good brand of Lavender's essential oil. It could guarantee to prevent any sore or itchy throats away by just rubbing your affected spot on your neck. I have been doing that for years for instant relief and no more sore throats.

  7. Oh Claire, I am so sorry you are sick. Maybe it is a cold? You are almost never sick! But this looks like a good meal for a sick person...protein, broth, and greens. I hope you get well really fast!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
