Souvenirs And Marketing In Victoria Market

So much to buy but we didn't actually bought a lot as yet.  We always ended up buying souvenirs that we don't use and giving out to our family and friends.  But old habits die hard... ladies are ladies.. we still want to grab stuff we find fascinating and cheap, right?  Shopping is endless for us... more pictures here...
Ok, what shall we buy?
Doing some bargaining... hahaha...
But most stalls have fixed prices...
Most of the stalls have the same style and designs..
Should I get these towels.... er... I guess no need ler... right?
Someone was caught in a bored mood!  Oh my!!  I didn't know that till I saw these pictures... 
He is such a "NICE BOY!"  LOL....
The shopping continues....
My girl ended up with a pink cap only $3... 
And finally in the vegetable and fruits section.... 
Need to buy back some for our lunch.... 
Our first apartment cooked meal 
Here is our menu for the day....
Love these fresh scalloops... $10 here...
So sweet.. just stir fry them and we get their sweet juice... 
Slowly does it.....
We ended up cooking spaghetti with ham and bacon... fresh scallops and lightly pan fried salmon!
Got to do this again before we leave.....

    1. Ya...going overseas, if you buy food and cook your own, it is a lot cheaper than eating outside...and nicer too. I think their salaries too high...so the cost is charged to the customers in the prices of the food.

    2. Yeah, you had a point there... normal meal is around $10 so might as well cook some nice meals with that kind of money... but most meals taken out too.. wanna try the western food..

  9. Was about to ask yesterday did you buy some food from the market to cook in your apartment, and today, saw your post liao cooking in the apartment, yay! Oh yes, agree with you "lui yan chin yung yi chan" (ladies money easy to get).. Haha.. Almost anything also we can buy.. Drop me anywhere, I can buy anything although I don't plan to buy anything.. Your home-cooked lunch looks good, I like. But I prefer white sauce to bolognaise.. The next time maybe can get your kids to do carbonarra cream sauce.. Can't wait!

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... 

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...
