EMCO IN IPOH!!!

 OH NO.... EMCO IN IPOH STARTING FROM TOMORROW!!  

This is the most drastic movement order, I started to think of barbed rolls of wire encircling my residence and being "imprisoned" ... my imagination ran wild the moment it was announced that IPOH among few other states are going to be put under Enhanced Movement Control Order.  

When we heard the news last night, phone calls and whatsapp messages coming in continuously... Questions like we going to be distributed food by the government?  My friend even joked about the distribution of two chickens to each house, etc etc.... Should we go out to store up our pantry?  Do we have enough food in the house if we do not go? And the list of questions went on and on.... 

I guess we should not be too "worked-up" or paranoid about food, more importantly, we should be concerned about the safety and abiding to the standard of procedures.  We can still go for online delivery where food, groceries and essentials are concerned... No need to join the crowd in rushing to buy anything in the malls, convenient stores, sundry shops.... Mind safety measures... no crowding please... 

These were received last night.... 
Last minute shopping before EMCO on Saturday....
Even Speed99 were crowded... tin cans all finished... 
Sundry shops were having brisk business too....

This morning we received the SOP for EMCO in Ipoh...
Only one person can go out for essentials...
That is fine... 
So that also means there would be no free chickens after all!

  1. Oh dear!!! I wish we had this here - I bet it will more effective than the half-baked efforts we have here in Sarawak. More and more cases every day and Sibu is always the worst in the state. So pissed off!!!

    Take care there! Stay safe, stay well. stay home!

  3. We went through this some time ago. We could not get any toilet paper or paper towels. I am so sorry, Claire! This must be really hard on you, because you are so used to being on the go.

  4. No need to rush or join in the long queue. I think it is just the last minute announcement of sop that causes the panic. Like you said, the word EMCO causes our mind to think of barb wires around our houses. Hope this EMCO will help to bring down the cases.

  5. Goodness me! I am reminded of how it was when MCO 1.0 was implemented back in 2020. It was so crazy at the supermarkets . I was quite worried yesterday and luckily government decided not to lockdown. Phew!

  6. Mad shopping rush!! Wonder we will follow suit or not in Sarawak but no cross district travel, no dine in and limited operating hours are implemented.

  7. all these EMCO and new enhanced SOP are making people panic! sometimes I think our government did not do enough to 'communicate' the expectation to the people and thus causing wild speculation and mad rush in the supermarkets.

  8. No more panic buying in SG since the announcement of HA Phase 2 as compared to the Circuit Breaker period last year.

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...
