Homecoming During RMCO

WELCOME HOME.... even if only for a short while...

When interstate travelling was approved on the 10th, my kids took the opportunity to make a trip home.  Immediately after work at 6pm, they drove back to Ipoh, reaching here before midnight.  It has been several months since Chinese New Year in February.  They have been working from home ever since the lockdown in March and now they are home, they are still working during the day.  Mommy here has to tend to their meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner.... Isn't that nice?  LOL...

They saw my postings on homecooking in my blog here and now they want to try them all.  Of course, not all... I must have the mood too, right?  LOL... Actually they miss the Ipoh hawker food more than my homecooked meals, no doubt about that.  But due to the RMCO, it is a bit troublesome to go out to eat, we have to write our names and contact number at the hawker centers and for those dine-in restaurants, they use mysejahtera or other scan codes.  Ever since they came back on Friday, we have been eating at home....
They wanted Apom Balik... 
So I did them... 
This time I couldn't get the whole pancake evenly brown... 
But the fillings is still the same...
Add in more peanuts and sesame seeds... 
For dinner, my son requested for potato chicken... 
I marinated the chicken with red wine this time... 
A vege dish with broccoli, capsicum and mushroom... 
Just two dishes for the three of us.... 
And for desserts, I made Herbal Jelly to cool down our body system...

  2. Nothing beats mummy's homecooked!!! You must be thrilled to have them home, sure beats being home alone. Indeed, it is rather troublesome to go and eat out...or buy stuff. Best to stay home, save money!

  3. Apom balik with lots of peanuts, so yummy! Long time didn't cook chicken and potato dish. Working from home is so much convenient, doesn't matter where home is.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
