Third Day CNY In Sg Buloh

I had never traveled out of town before during CNY but this year is quite different. This is the first year that my mom is not around to celebrate CNY with the family. Without her during this festive time, the feeling is just not the same anymore. Something is still missing and it looks like we siblings have to fend to our own programs and plans. It will take time to get used not having her during festive seasons from now on.

For the first time in history this year, we did something different.  We decided to go to KL to visit my sibling and together with my sister, we loaded all our "goodies" and stuffed our cars with a bit of everything, so much so... my car was full to the brim!
The goodies and the frozen food were "seated" in the middle....
Even the "Hushie" need to stand in the middle with our favourite snacks beneath his bottom!
Thank goodness Hushie does not "f**t"  hahahaaa...
And off we went to Sg. Buloh...
A two hours drive...
 A bonding time in the kitchen.... 
"Slaughtering"....
Stewed Duck!
Next came the yellow skin meat....
Woo Soe Kai....
My SIL's specialty... 
Tom Yam Spaghetti!
Someone is really interested!
This is our favourites!
Ju Hoo Char... wrapped with lettuce...
A Sitiawan Dish....
So appetizing that it was finished up very fast!
And lastly and not least.... 
Seafood varieties topped with abalones....
 As usual....
 Soon it is "walloping time!"
Free style....

  5. This looks so good! Your mom would love it that you are getting on with life and all together on the holiday. You will always miss her, as I do mine. And holidays are the worst. But she is walking on streets of gold now!

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...
