Our First Homecooked Meal In Johor

We did not eat out all the time, firstly it is quite costly and secondly, most of the food are sort of "fattening" too... my sons prefer homecooked food anytime especially they have been "deprived" from them for a doubly long time already.   So ... most mornings, my girl and I will do some marketing at the grocery malls and just a few days ago, I was told that there is one mini market just near my place.  Now there is no more excuse that I cannot cook.... hahahaa...

For the first few days, I just did some simple cooking such as these...

Broccoli with mushrooms and scallops....
Beans with egg....
There were limited bowls in the house then... 
Only two metal plates, one bowl and one big mug...
So my girl ended up eating rice in the big mug!
hahahahaa...
After that day, we bought the whatever is necessary....
A more proper meal was in store....
Since it's just family, I didn't bother to dish out individual bowls for soup...
We do it the "authentic way" .... 
 This time I did cauliflower with mushrooms and scallops...
Sweet sour prawns....

ABC groundnuts soup....
And peeled oranges done by my girl... 
(for the first time in history!)
Thus the photo as proof.. 
Good job!
Welfie...
Our first proper meal!!

  5. i would certainly agree with that.. your two boys have been eating out all the time, and now they have the "Empress Dowager" to stay with them, for sure they would feel like eating something homecooked!! and i would say, the dishes do not need to be fancy, but would definitely taste a lot more delicious than many food they have been having outside.. :)

  6. I wonder if your sons secretly tell their colleagues: "Yay! we get home cooked meals now because we just imported our maid from Ipoh!"

    That's what my colleague kept saying when his mom retire and moved to Penang to live with him.. XD

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
