Running Errands On The 6th Day Of Chinese New Year

STARTED OFF THE DAY going to the petrol station and the regular attendant who is mute and dumb, came and helped me, wiped my front and back mirror, checked the engine oil and water and after giving the thumbs up, I gave him a red packet.  Not much and he reciprocated with two palms signifying Happy New Year.  I used the same gesture to wish him back, thumbs up and we drove off.  A nice start off for the day.... 

Then we adjourned to have breakfast in Keng Nam, a corner coffeeshop in town, famous for their curry noodles and Kaya glutinous rice.  However we did not order curry noodles but a plate of Chee Cheong Fun instead.  After breakfast I drove to the mechanic, did some alignment and balancing costing RM90.  Went to bank while waiting and the last stop is the mall, did some groceries and by the time we reached home, it was almost 1pm.  Time really passes very fast each day!

A dash of hot and sweet sauce... RM6
A set of toasted bread with half boiled eggs... 
Can't really see the other half boiled egg... 
Been drooling for this.... 
And while I was sitting there, the orders came non-stop for this dessert... 
Sticky rice with sweet Kaya... 

As for yesterday's dinner, I just boiled porridge and ate with these 2 dishes...
Lightly pan fried cod fish... 
I bought this for RM38... 
Long time I did not take so it justifies the pricing... LOL... 
And I added greens to the leftover dish of pork ribs and arrowhead... 
Now I am thinking what to cook for tonight...

  1. Yes, good for you! I also give tips to those attendants at the petrol station, just ask them to keep the change usually. Pity them, having to stand for hours in the heat...plus I hear they are not paid very much. So sad.

    Oooooo...I would love that sticky rice with kaya!!!

  6. I'm drooling at your pan-fried cod fish....haiz, RM38 for such a small piece (is that half a piece?) :D Love it lightly fried like this or steamed...used to buy at a time when it was still affordable.

  7. So kind of you to give a red packet to the attendant, I am sure his service and attitude was good too, that is why you gave the thumbs up! All the breakfast look good, the ccf, the toast with half boiled egg and the glutinous rice with kaya (which I have not tried before). Wow cod fish, yums!

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
