Fifth Day Of Chinese New Year

FIFTH DAY...  Looks like it is back to normal, no more festive mood.  My kids, my friends... they start working again.  For retirees like me, it is just another normal day, wake up thinking what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.   Just the daily chores, sweeping, washing, cooking, eat, watch TV while dozing off at times and then bedtime.   This is retirement life... sounds kind of boring eh... know why?  Traveling is prohibited!  Sigh... otherwise life wouldn't be so quiet as it is now....

So now it is back to normal, normal means Movement Control Order, only two can dine out.  This morning I bought back food for breakfast instead of eating out...

Felt like eating curry noodles from Ye Sing... 
Days before MCO, their curry sold out by 9 or latest 9.30am...
Nowadays they are still available even at 10 or after... 
This was yesterday's lunch.... 
4 leftover prawn curry from the previous dinner... 
I just added in some greens and one dish is ready... 
Oh, did I tell you about my smart cooker?
I just took it out in full use a couple of months back...
And since then, I don't want to keep it in the cupboard anymore... 
Never realised that it was so so useful!
OK, I will tell more about it... 

Back to this dish, I braised pork ribs, arrowhead, black fungus... 
marinated with fermented beancurd and chili sauce... 
Add in garlic and ginger... 
Cooking time 30 minutes and the dish is done!

  1. Here, we call them Instant Pots, I bet that is what you got. I wait to see what you are making in it! Maybe I will buy one. The curry noodles look so good!

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...
