My Gross Post (Not For The Weak Hearted)

In my previous post, I blogged about eating mangosteens...In this post I will blog about the outcome of eating too much mangosteens... hahahaa...

I think I took around 10 mangosteens or a bit more .. not sure exactly how much I took and after taking that amount and 2 pieces of agar agar, I began to feel a bit "uneasy"... Uneasy in terms of headache and a bit of giddiness.  Then I prepared a hot drink of oats to drink... and that was it...

After work, I quickly went for an early dinner... took a big bowl of noodles and a glass of fresh soursop... During the evening, my shoulders felt like very "heavy".... and when I pressed them, I burped... Chinese says "Wind" (foong)

To release the "wind" from the body, my sister is very "lar sau one" (expert)... she used the old traditional way of releasing the "extra wind" by using a ceremic spoon and "wind ointment" (minyak angin) ... On and On, she "scraped" and "scraped" on my back starting with the neck and shoulders....
She exclaimed after a few strokes on my left shoulder...
'JUST LOOK AT THIS!  TERRIBLE WIND WITHIN YOU!"
My right shoulder was bad too but not as bad as the left...
No, I did not feel any pain at all...
Instead it was a BIG relief...
My headache was gone after the "scraping" and many more BURPS!
It works!
Believe it or not.....

Moral of the story:  
Mangosteens cannot be taken a lot at one time.. 
Best taken after a bout of Durians!

  5. Not gross at all. with your sister around you don't have to worry about too much wind!

  6. Alamak, that shows how heaty your body is. Maybe due to eating too much durian and the crazy hot weather. You should have drunk some salt water after each durian session.

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...
