Wearing A Mask At Home Is Safe Too

4TH & 5TH DAY OF COVID CONFINEMENT...

What comes to my mind each morning when I wake up?  These questions...   What shall I eat today, breakfast... lunch and dinner... What shall I cook?  I guess I am not alone thinking about the preparation of food.  We need to ration, right?  Not sure when the shops or markets might be closed one day.  Now the situation is so unpredictable.  

Reading and hearing too much about the bad news is not good though I need to know what is happening.  Staying at home alone too long without talking to anyone can have adverse effects.  That is why I stay sane by talking on the phone, video call, or whatever it takes just to have some voice talking back to me.  LOL.... 

These days it is common to see many of us put up what we cook online.  Facebook, Instagram, blogs, vblogs, we share and show people what we have each day, get some ideas on what to cook for our family, in my case, for myself... 
I start off the day daily with 2 slices of bread with Skippy peanut butter...
Two half boiled eggs... but for this case, it is more than half cooked.. 3/4 cooked in fact...
I was a bit too greedy on the first day... one egg should be enough, not two... 
After that day, I just ate two slices of bread minus the egg...
Have to Ration.... LOL... 
I braised some pork ribs with radish, tomatoes, red chili and lemongrass... 
Shared some with my neighbour... 
Had Kolo mee with this dish.. 
Fried rice for dinner...
Big heavy meals, right?
For snacks in between, eating guava marinated with "dry tangerine skin"... 

My friend forwarded this message to me... 

Please wear a mask at home also, specially when alone.....
This may or may not prevent Corona 
but will surely stop you from eating more... 

I couldn't agree more... LOL!!!

  5. Muahahahahaha! I think that's funny to wear a mask at home. I have been snacking all the CNY cookies while watching TV. There are hampers waiting to be opened too. HELP!

    I am just the opposite. I would ask my wife what we should eat the next day's lunch and dinner.

  6. Your cooking looks so good, Claire!! And think of the money you will be saving now. Enough to buy really fancy meals when the staying inside is over.

  7. The only way to stay connected and sane is through the social media and phone calls. This "stay home" improves your cooking and they all look delicious. Surprisingly, I have no mood to snack during this time, maybe because not burning up calories by staying home and sitting down alot.

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...
