Missing You On Winter Solstice....

Today is Winter Solstice... my kids are not with me but I know they wanted to be home as much I love them to be.  But circumstances do not allow it at this moment but soon... very soon we will be together again!

My siblings and I had a very scrumptious dinner at my mother's place... she is very "terror" one, terror in my English sense is "Power Cook"... she can cope up and cook these dishes at one go.. fast and swift... nice and yummylicious dishes....so these were what we had this evening...
Steamed "Village" Chicken....
Marinated Vinegar Cucumber....
Two types of vegetables.. broccoli and cauliflower... 
Fish Maw soup!
And what is that she is holding?
Yes, Trotters in Black Vinegar!!
My favourite too!  Now I can feel my face having some "burning sensation"............
Simple... Complicated... Appetizing... Yummylicious...
Come Let's Wallop.... 
Last and not least.... 
Odd Shapes Tong Yuen!

My Do Re Mi are not home yet... Yes, I know the three of you like to drink the syrup and eat these rice flour balls... Not to worry, your grandma has saved a packet in the fridge, when the three of you come back, we will do them again!  Whatever shapes you all want to....
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

  10. Hello Claire,

    Your mother is really a great cook as she can make so many dishes in a short time.

    Your children must be also missing you and their grandmother too on this festive day.

    Happy Winter Solstice to you and your family!

    1. Same to you, Mun! Hope you had a good time with your family too!!

  11. Double thumbs up for your mum's cooking! Hers has that mum-cooked look. Too bad my mum can no longer cook for a long time now. Bet she misses that a lot...and misses seeing the family enjoying what she dished out, licking the plates clean. None of your kids home? Hope they'll be home with Christmas - would be so sad and lonely without them...or you'll be going over to Singapore or Penang again?

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... 

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
