Third Day Of Nationwide Movement Control Covid19

THIRD DAY OF "CONFINEMENT"....

Oh, but I did go out this morning, thought of buying more eggs and a loaf of bread.  The mini wet market had more people today, it seems they are forced to close from tomorrow onwards.  The residents must have heard about it and the panic buying began again.  No more chicken meat and fish by the time I reached there at 10am.  I adjourned to the sundry shop, no eggs, finished too!!  Wow, that is serious, man.... I managed to get 10 eggs from another shop but no bread in sight, all gone... Gone!

I guess I have to ration my stock in the fridge... LOL... My neighbor called me early this morning and told me that she made a special dish today, Hainanese Braised Pork and gave me a one meal portion.  Tasted sourish and spicy... appetizing!  Yes, I guess many of us will gain some healthy weight during this confinement...
I like this new kitchen toy I bought from Lazada....
I can steam my rice... 
and warm up the dish at the same time....

And my meal is done for the day!

  1. Oh dear even telur also habis at your wet market. My neighborhood folks would flock into Hero Supermarket to grab every afternoon when stuffs are replenished.
    You have really good and kind neighbours! They are caring like you.

  3. Oh dear! Yesterday me and my lahling went to look for grocery and the bread section was still empty. Luckily there is a bakery inside Jaya Grocer (The Baker's Son) so we bought their bread. It is more expensive but no choice! Wah, I like your new cooking gadget. I actually like these things, on Lazada I see and can go gila I tell you. But I don't buy because most of the time, it will collect dust. LOL!

  4. Both you and your neighbour's dishes look yummy! You have such nice neighbours. When your country announced the partial lockdown, in sg, there was another round of panic buying at our supermarkets. Our garmen has to reassure the citizens that there will be enough stocks to go around.

  5. Wah! Your new steamer looks cool. Yes, this morning managed to get some chicken and pork. Bread all gone. Some places no eggs. Maybe I have to make some steamed buns to keep.

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
