My Encounter With Covid-19

MISSING IN ACTION AGAIN... and now this is my first post since a month ago....

IN this post I will blog about my Covid-19 experience, not something nice to brag about in a post, but since it is such a common thingy nowadays, it is not surprising anymore.  

I was stricken with a flu bug in early January, the first one in the family to get it was was my son.  His initial symptoms was diarrhea and since he was the only one in the family to get it, we thought it was a stomach flu, food that he has eaten.  The next day he was having dry itchy throat and slight fever.  Then only he realized it might be Covid.  During that time, we did not have test kits in the house and he went to drive through center for checkup.  Within 24 hours, the results came back positive.  By the time we knew, it was already too late.  No quarantine was implemented before this and in a day or two, he got well... but I already was infected....

I did not have diarrhea but dry throat and bad cough.  I kept coughing and coughing... my throat was very itchy especially during the night, I had to sit 45 degrees to get my sleep.  Other than coughing, it was just a normal day, my appetite was good and all I did was drink lots of warm water and honey lemon each morning, Vitamin C, garlic pills and Echinacea.... and let my body system did the rest.

Within two weeks, we recovered .... during the two weeks, my daughter-in-law and the baby were also infected.  Baby was having the least symptoms, just a slight cough for a day or two... mother was like me, coughing and there was nowhere to avoid it.  

That time in January California was having the peak of Omicron.... and now it is in Malaysia....

On the positive side, we did not have to do house quarantine when we came back to Malaysia.... and once I reached home, I went for my booster dose!  
The med which cured me too...


  1. I think you are so blessed that it was not a lot worse, and that you and your family escaped any severe symptoms. You all must have very good immune systems! Had you gotten any vaccinations?

  2. So glad you are all right now. You are back here in Malaysia? Of course, no place like home. Take care, God bless.

  3. Oh dear! Thankfully you and your family are all recovered now. So scary!

  4. Thanks for sharing your experience. PTL all of you have recovered now. Please take good care. 🙏

  5. Good to hear from you. I was wondering at the long silence on your blog. Thank God for the speedy recovery for you and your family. I was also tested positive on 12/3 and quickly self isolated for a week and thank God all is good now. Take care.

  6. Common to get the virus nowaday. Self testing kit and self quarantine. Guess it is part of life for dont-know-how-long.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. Take care and stay healthy.

  7. Hope all is well with you now. Take care and blessed Sunday

  8. Thank God that everyone is alright now. It is a common thing now, not like before the initial stage of pandemic when it was so serious and scary. So now, your body has its own immunity.

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....

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...
