My Cucumber Face

Went to the market this morning to replenish the food stuff in my empty fridge. Chicken parts, vegetables and breakfast were bought but I ended up eating alone cos I did not have any "dates" or "appointments" as my kids did. The house was so quiet when they were not around this whole morning and afternoon.

Mum also didn't want to be left out (chap shu) so I went for my badminton session at 1.30pm till 3pm... and now... sigh... "suffering" the consequences of having that game earlier. I really have to give up playing, my arms and back started to get some discomfort again. I must accept the fact that ..... it is time to hang up my racket.

Coming back to the topic, tonight's dinner is just tuna sandwiches... that is it! Tired la... With the excess cucumber, this idea came to my mind...... anyone tried this before???

my girl did this for me and snap a pic...
a "cucumber face" is born....

  8. I tried this before. LOL...claire, wanna put on the face, nonid to peel the skin off la...

  9. Cucumber and the skin share the same level of hydrogen,it helps in soothing and softening your skin and treating many skin problems. The cleaning and cleansing property helps your skin tremendously making it soft and supple.

  10. Well, you are just adorable! Yes, I actually just saw this on the Dr. Oz T.V. show to put cucumbers on your face, it's good for it!! I just had a tuna sandwich, how do you make yours?

    mingna: u r very knowledgeable.. u r a skin doc or health doc? wanna go consult u ..

    ginny: my sandwich is very simple, just put the tuna mayo on the bread.. and wallop them.. :p

  12. Soothe the tired eyes. But I never tried putting on my face though. Nice pic. ;)

  13. I've heard of cucumber on the eyes but I've never actually done it. Interesting.

  14. I heard cucumber is good for the eyes.. cools it and reduces eyebags.
    For the face,, aloe vera is better.

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

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
