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.... L

Plants And Kiwi Cherries

FALL IS HERE... sometimes it is cold till I have to wear long sleeves and pants, but today is sunny.  I am still surviving with short sleeves and shorts at this moment.  LOL....  We have a very small mini size area and the soil is very fertile.  During the summer, they were very productive, I mean the plants, not the humans.  :)  Every now and then, these need to be plucked, I like the cherry tomatoes, they are very sweet even when eaten raw.  Oh, I forgot to take the cilipadi pictures, too bad... they are pretty dried up by now.  Buying cilipadi (hot chillies) in the malls is not cheap and during this season, we have to pluck them and put them in the freezer.  The plants will go into "hibernation" during the cold season.....  Sometimes I eat them raw and most times, I just add to the vegetables I cook....  For flavor.... LOL... Capsicum and they come in odd shapes.... See..... short and stubby..... Butt shape too! This one is most normal.....  Oh, we did not plant these.....

TRAVELING MADE EASY.... is happening now in Malaysia, no need to apply for police permit or getting My Travel Pass approval.  Good or not good?  As for me, at the endof the day, we, the people have to take our own precaution, we have to face risks if we want to go out freely and at the same time, life just have to go on.  The virus is definitely now here to stay...  Over here, I also try not to go out unnecessarily, the numbers here are low, just a few hundreds but we do not actually know the real figures, right?  So it is like in Malaysia, "sendiri jaga diri".....  So most days I prepare my own breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Breakfast as usual is very simple, followed by lunch, mostly noodles or leftover food from previous day and dinner, I try to have one or two dishes done by then.  Juggling an active baby who sleeps one hour nap in between, there is not much time to do what I want to do.  LOL... With this routine, my blog is often left neglected and for my readers, please
