Sang Choy AKA Lettuce For Chinese New Year

TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN!!
Seeing this pot of Lettuce means it is the festive season again!!

My friend's agriculture farm is blooming with these beautiful pots Lettuce at this time of the year again, Chinese New Year is just around the corner, in fact just a week away.   Many of us are now very busy in the kitchen or busy doing some last minute shopping at the malls or online.  I know someone is busy doing some last minute buying her clothing online, no time to go visit the malls and secondly, she told me online shopping is cheaper.  But I do not always agree... cos recently I have bought one dress and I have given it away two days ago... Cannot wear at all... LOL... 

Oh, back to my pot of Lettuce... I ordered 5 pots of this Pesticide free Lettuce from my friend and many orders have since come in too...  I like this pot of Lettuce cos it is very fresh and sweet too, goes so well with my favourite dish Ju Hu Char!  Last year I bought a few pots too and given them away as gifts... Chinese love this vegetable cos of its name too, it is called Sang Choy and it means "Alive and Active!"  LOL... 
No pesticides or chemicals sprayed... 
Can eat in Peace... 
LOL.. 

And it can still bloom and bloom... 
And my friend's treasures.... 
Thousands of them!
A very successful harvest indeed!
One pot of this Pesticide free Lettuce cost around RM15
And the price will be higher by next week... I think!
LOL...

  4. Wow, very healthy!! And pretty too. We have lettuce here that looks like this, but it is called Butter Lettuce. Sorry about the dress. I always have to try mine on. Even though it may look good,seems when I actually have it on, not good.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
