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.

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
