My Angel Hair Day

APRIL MONTH IS HERE... and we are still under Movement Control Order for another 2 weeks.  It will not surprising if the MCO is extended till end of April unless there is a drop on new cases and recovery is increasing.  For me being a pensioner, there is no difference in my revenue but I really feel for those who are deeply affected by this lockdown.  Those who are sole bread winner in their families, these are the most trying times in their lives.  Anyway, let us do what we can to help, in fact, everyone plays a part, whether our part is a small one or big one like those frontliners... as commoners, we shall do our part and cooperate... be obedient and stay home.

I bought 2 packets of angel hair type of spaghetti before the MCO and I have eaten half a packet since.  Verdict:  I love it!  Firstly, it is fine and springy, just like wanton noodles which I am missing each day.  Secondly, so easy and fast, just less than five minutes in boiling water unlike the normal spaghetti which takes longer time. 
My simple dinner on that bacon day where I have leftovers... 
I just stir in my angel hair noodles with the remainders and my dinner is served... 

Yesterday I cook curry pork ribs with potatoes...
I had rice with just the curry dish for lunch... leaving half for my dinner...
Then last minute nephew called ... 
And I passed the remaining curry to him... 
For dinner, I just added in some pork balls and that was my meal!!

  1. No hassle to cook for ourselves. I like angel's hair. Sometimes I fry it like Chinese style.

  3. Your meals always look so yummy. We love Angel Hair, and I have maybe 6 boxes of it now! I do not use regular spaghetti anymore, we like the Angel hair much better.

  4. Both dishes you cooked are so delicious! I prefer Angel Hair because it is thin and easy to eat.

  5. I went to the shop near my house yesterday - no spaghetti, no angel hair. In the end, I bought macaroni, spirals and shells...and bottles of Prego pasta sauces. We prefer Angel Hair to spaghetti.

  6. That looks yummy! I've been cooking a lot of vegetable stews with beans. No worry about not being home while it cooks now. Thrifty and tasty and no one seems to be stockpiling root vegetables. Take care!

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
