Festive Time Of Togetherness

:: Thank You Lord for the food glorious food on the table....Amen.....::

Back to work after a 4 1/2 days of CNY celebration..time passed doubly fast when holidaying..
Briefly about my cny, as usual reunion dinner was at my in laws place..now that our kids hv grown up, the used-to-be big table couldnt fit in all, we were tightly squeezed and one of them just couldnt even hv space to hold the chopsticks..imagine..i guess next year, we need to put an extra small table by the side..all are big hunks now, by the way.. After dinner, stroll to my mum's place to join my siblings..the atmostphere naturally is better there..someone prepared a session for ginrummy..great..i miss that..but after an hour or so, my eyes were blur blur already.. i guess age is catching up and mind deactivates quicker than before...

On the first day, makan at in-law's house again..see how blessed i m ? i dont hv to cook..hehe.. most are left over dishes from the previous nite, nevertheless, they were still as yummy...but i realise that my appetite was not really good, i ended up taking vegetables only instead of meat, meat and meat... maybe my digestion has slow down year after year..

Oh, not forgetting, my 2nd precious came down with a fever, rashes all over, i suspect it was measles, true enough, when i took him to see 24hr doc at 11.45pm, it is really confirmed measles.. too many late nites and taking too much heaty food prior to cny.. He felt sore, asking himself why of all days, he must get sick during this festive season??haha..i guess there is always a reason behind it...anyway, sick or healthy, continue to be thankful that we r still healthy and normal, that is what i always be thankful for...in all circumstances...one day, we will know the real reason...just be patient and live each day feeling blessed..

Had a reunion with my old former classmates on the 2nd day nite, i wasnt expecting many, in fact just a 3 or 4...but to my amaze, a total of 12 turned up..wow... long lost frens we havent seen for decades came to my doorstep, one mouth to another...all were looking forward to seeing each other's face after umpteen years..haha...some aged, some looked more robust than ever, some still sexy looking and one used-to-be 'hot stuff' turned out to be a typical mum of 4 kids...haha..my goodness... Well, i guess this is the cycle of life...unexpected things happens...

Sent my 1st precious back to his campus on Sunday...looking at his face as he waved goodbye, I felt a pang of sadness from him...he will miss this wonderful festive season but i hope he will have a wonderful time partying with his hostel mates, after all, he brought a lot of food stuff that will remind them of this special occassion.... Son, if u r reading this, just wanna u to know we r looking forward to seeing u in another 2 weeks time...

Despite all the good and bad times, chinese new year is a time where families should gather together..a time to share memories, a time to be fellowship with one another.. this festive season will continue to come and go and families should take this opportunity to treasure moments of togetherness with one another... a time to share, to care and to love..................................

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
