Steamed Rice With Pumpkin

LAZY DAYS...

I try to minimize my cooking to once a day... max... LOL.. I am so lazy these days.  Most of the time I cook only for dinner, with a heavy breakfast, I skip lunch.. *I try* but most times I end up taking bread instead. 

Yesterday in Ipoh, heavy rain and thunder plus hailstones!  But thankfully not in my area but certain parts of Ipoh... I was safe in my own house despite the howling wind, seriously howling, never heard such wooooo sounds so clearly before...but this morning when I woke up, I saw two small holes in my kitchen ceiling.  Oh oh... time to check for repairs... sigh... Today I saw the aftermath of the storm, Ipoh being terrorized by the storm is up on viral, really scary if I were driving in the midst of the heavy storm and wind. 

Back to my post..... I just cook a simple meal with half a pumpkin, minced meat, french beans, dried shrimps and red hot chillies...
Steamed pumpkin rice for the both of us.... 
The heavy rain did not stop me from having my desserts.... 
My kind-of-expression after my "fix"...
LOL....

  2. The young man managed to go your place in the heavy rain? No point wasting gas and electricity to cook so many times. Just cook more once a day. Can eat same food. It is ok.

  4. Ya read abt the storm in ipoh in facebook, hope all is well and safe and no injury. Lol, same as you, i would eat bread when lazy to think of wat to eat and lazy to takeaway. Repairing of ceiling should be considered as essential service rite, i hope you manage to get smone to repair it. Your steamed pumpkin rice with minced meat looks yummy and satisfying.

  5. Yes, I read about the storm. Terrible weather these days, global warming!!! We cook once a day, in the morning for lunch and dinner. Evening, we just heat up the food.

  9. This is such a good idea to cook rice with pumpkin. It will make the rice more fragrant and sweeter.

    You and I have same tastes for Baskin Robins ice creams!

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
