Five Of Us Gathered At Old Man, Ipoh

A FEW OF US EX-SCHOOLMATES gathered for a dinner to celebrate the November "babies" ... Yes, I know I posted a post on a dinner with my ex-es recently at Lanna Thai restaurant.  That is a different group... LOL... and on this evening, it is another group whom I also mix with.  Well, I guess I am a "good mixer" in school last time.  LOL... Just kidding!  Frankly speaking, I held a very "low profile" during my school days, not many know me then in the 1970s.  Well, now in the 2000s... I am still the same.  Mention my name, many of them still reply, "Who?? who is T... S... L.... Can see picture first??" 

Alright, back to my low profile birthday celebration, five of us had a simple dinner at a place called Old Man Restaurant!  Yes, what a name for a restaurant, I must ask the owner one day the reason why it is named Old Man.  Yeah, I know what you are thinking.... Add a Dirty in front and everyone will remember this place forever!  LOL...

Since there were only 5 of us, we ordered four dishes to accommodate our tummies....
Very flavourful Yam with Braised Meat.... 
I "stole" the yam only from this dish ... 
Recommended is the Chicken Chestnut in Claypot... 
A bit sweet cos of the sweetened chestnuts.. 
Not too bad, something different... 
I welcomed this dish with open arms... 
Claypot Cabbage cooked with Glass noodles and beancurd skin.... 
Yes, it was fuming hot when served.... 
Buttered Mantis.... goes well with the dinner anytime!
The Four dishes for the Five of us... 
Bill comes to around RM70plus with drinks... 
Not too bad at Old Man, right?

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
