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!

Thank you, readers!

Never Have I Ever...

I am not surprised that I would get infected with Covid virus again, I have myself to blame for I did not wear masks ever since I came back ...
