Reanaclaire Cooks - Not-So-Appetizing

Hot weather looming above Ipoh for the past many days already and I lost the battle to the heat... Was on medical leave for the past two days and still not fully recovered.  Despite being on medication, I do not really understand why I have a good appetite.  Thank goodness I did otherwise it would be "disastrous" time for me to stay at home and having oats all the time.  That is definitely sad news...

This morning I felt better but I gave myself one more day of rest before going back to the air con office and might get chilled again.  Since I was yearning for some hot piping soup,  my girl and I went for this special pan mee cooked with spinach....
The lady knows my request by now...
Less noodles... More spinach... 
Price is the same RM4 per bowl.... 
Was sweating profusely by the time I finished this hot soup.... 
For our afternoon tea break, I steamed two types of sweet potatoes.... 
Good enough for the two of us...
As for dinner.... one dish is enough for both of us...
Consists of capisium, tomato, carrot, big onions and some minced meat....
Taken with white porridge with carrots....
Not really appealing or appetizing but it will do ...
At least for me... for now....

  1. Your dish looks better than the pan mee! Throw sweet potatoes into the porridge - will make it very nice and sweet, sure to bring the taste to a whole new level. Nicer! (I would not use the purple ones though - the porridge will turn all purple!)

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....

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

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...
