A Non-Oomph Feel Tonight

Nothing special to write about... the"oomph" is not here tonight.... lots of things on my mind... but I try to "divert" myself from those issues... Ranting out in my own blog sounds like a good idea, however.... some are too personal to disclose... To overcome this problem, I must open up a new blog with a new identity and then whatever XXXX can be blast out.... one fine day I might do that... 

Meanwhile bear with me... being a Food-holic, these were taken today, Tuesday 24th June.....
Chee Cheong Fun in Thean Chun Old Town... 
RM3.20 for the above.... 
Some fish balls must go with the CCF then only "shiok"
Another RM2.80 for the 4 pieces...
And as if they are not enough, I ordered my dessert to make the meal complete...
RM2.50 or so... cannot remember the price for this.. haiyah...
*  yan loe chor... *
 
Now... adding them up, my meal cost around RM8-9...
If I just order a plate of CCF and a glass of plain water, it would be less than RM4...
And for tonight's dinner, I just whooped up a simple meal like this...
Penang white curry noodles without the creamer.... about RM1.50
And a packet of organic spinach... RM3.50

Oh gosh... I seem to be very calculative tonight...
Something is very wrong here... hhmmmmm...

    1. Yeah so so only la.. I prefer the non-spicy type.. chicken mushroom or whatever.. but it is better to make own soup and pour over the noodles after that... :)

  4. I am having ccf nearly everyday for brunch. Just can't eat enough but I can only eat 1 portion (one sheet - RM1.60) per meal. Your dinner got vege is got enough. Tell us the price is not calculative lah. Really hope you let out whatever is bothering you - write it out on paper to rant and then tear up the paper to keep it private. Could work.

    1. Yes, I do not like the creamer so I didn't add.. just curry Ipoh style instead of Penang.. .

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
