First And Second Day Of Chinese New Year

AND IT'S ALL ABOUT FOOD...

Very quiet along my row of house this year unlike the past years, fire crackers could be heard on the eve, first day and more noise on the second day of Chinese New Year.  Today is the actual first day of the Year 2021 for Chinese, we called it Hoi Leen in Cantonese, supposedly to be more important than the first day.  Am I right or wrong?  LOL... 

Anyway, as I said earlier, it was a quiet affair, we had our reunion on Facetime, Ipoh, Johor, Singapore, US... we arranged to meet at 12 noon and we interacted for almost an hour.  That is family our reunion for this year 2021.  I invited two friends over on the first day of CNY, just simple brunch.   I just did one dish, vegetarian noodles and a sweet dessert consisting of a few varieties.... 

For the four of us.... 
And today we had these.... 
I cook three dishes and 3 others were "contributed".... 
A new dish my friend taught me.... 
Using garlic, ginger, scallop sauce and kimball chili sauce...
Reminds me of my childhood days... 
LOL....

  4. Good that you ate vegetarian on the first day of CNY. I did not eat vegetarian this year as our uncle invited us over to his house for steamboat dinner. Great bonding and chatting over Facetime with your family. The prawns look yummy! Happy Niu Year to you and your family Claire!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
