Reanaclaire Cooks - Using Electrical Gadgets

My day started off with a nice breakfast in Bercham with my girl ... today we were quite adventurous, we ventured out to a new place in Bercham and we enjoyed our brunch tremendously.  Too bad we did not take any pictures but worry not, we will come back to this shop again some day...

After our brunch, we adjourned for some shopping at Kinta City, both of us bought something nice for ourselves before we went to the supermarket to get some stuff for tonight's dinner.  Our intention was to buy fish and some greens.  On top of that, we bought some other stuff as well... and at the cashier's counter, my phone rang.  Meanwhile my girl has taken some of the stuff to be weighed and by the time she came back, the goods were all paid and ready to be deposited into the trolley.

Upon reaching home and while unpacking the foodstuff, I realized the fish and the greens were missing... Oh oh... Not wanting to say defeat, we drove out again to the supermarket... but then when I asked the cashier, she said she didn't see anything left behind.... sigh... my dinner package was gone with the wind... I calculated.. it was around RM20 worth of food.  :)   No worries... hope someone else will enjoy the food instead...

Leaving no choice, our menu was changed last minute.... And to my chagrin, the stove ran out of gas while boiling the soup half way.  The man told me that there would be no delivery on this public holiday.. sigh...

No worries again... anything can be solved.... Why not use the Induction Cooker, my girl asked... hahaha.. I really forgotten about that... Really!
My office gift being made to use.... very timely indeed especially situations like this...
Boiling chicken with herbs...

Another gift being used is this...
Given by my colleague.... 
First time using this too... 
Steamed rice....
As for the top plate, sliced arrowhead and chinese sausage...
were cooked so nicely!!
And then we tried stir-frying one dish on the induction cooker....
First blanch the Broccoli...
Then sauteed the onions and garlic...
Add in the fresh scallops and broccoli
And it is cooked in no time!
A simple dinner for two....
My two gifts are being used to full force...
At least for today...
hahahaha...

  4. Nice meal - just right for two! Good also that you have a chance to use your two gifts.

    Once I forgot to take my grocery too and only remembered when I reached home. Went there again and luckily the cashier kept them for me under the payment counter and gave them to me when I showed her the receipt. May the person who took your fish and vege make good use of them.

  7. We have an Induction Cooker too, seldom use...keep for emergencies. Consume a lot of electricity or not? That steamer looks great for the recent fad/craze - the tomato rice.

  8. Hah, again ahh food went missing? I remembered previously it was the pumpkin or something like that in the wet market.. And this time it was the fish, and you drove back somemore.. Nevermind, you have the induction cooker and the electrical lunch box.. I use the electrical lunch box to cook small portion of food too :)

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... 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
