Good Food At San Jose

ROUTINE LIFE NOW.... No running here and there, mostly in the house and going out during weekends, that is my kind of life here in San Jose.  

There is nothing much going on here, except the weather now is cold, I am having good restful sleep at night. perhaps due to the energy all used up during the day.  Taking care of an active baby is no joke for a retiree like me, despite the used-up battery, my pains and creaking diminishes when I see and hear the baby's smiles and laughter... Tiring but satisfying.... I want to know when my weary bones give up on me... LOL... so far, they are still intact and creaks only when I sit too long on the floor.... no more spring chicken like my son and daughter in law who can spring up easily!  Gone are the days.....

Most days I cook... on and off, my son and his wife would take over the wok...

My son's special Penang fried koay teow....
Using shrimps, chinese sausage and eggs....
Too bad no spring onions on that day...
Messy at the sides.... LOL...
Other than that, very wok taste... 
especially with the added sambal with the noodles!
On another day, my daughter in law cook nestum prawns....
Yeah, more presentable and impressive too!
Our dinner on one fine evening....
Yummy, right?
Sometimes we just survived on simple set like this.... 
And this.... 
At times they picked these up at one of the dim sum shops...
LOL... 
And for lunch, mostly noodles I cook at home.... 
Empowered by minced meat....
Simple meals on normal days....
Yes, I am really a very good girl now...
At least for another few months...
LOL..

    Yes, we are old now, must slow down a bit. Take things easy and must be very very careful. Old folks must not fall down. Of course, so much joy seeing one's grandchild. Enjoy your time babysitting!

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

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...
