Christmas Is Not Christmas Without Fruit Cakes

TODAY IS CHRISTMAS EVE... this year will be a bit different for me, staying home the whole day and night.  A very quiet evening at the moment and not quiet anymore in a matter of hours.

I really do not mind the quietness, I am not idling... in fact my fingers never stops... either I am here on the laptop, or playing on my iPad, Sodoku or watching my favourite Astro series which I have been faithfully recorded for many weeks already.

My buddy dropped by to visit me, bringing lunch and accompanying yours truly till evening, then she left.  Half hour later, another friend dropped by... bringing me a gift and special food for my furry member as well.  So nice of them!  My day is
Her special homemade gift for Christmas!
Freshly baked Fruit Cake!
 I couldn't resist and cut a Big piece to eat as soon as she left... 
The aroma of the brandy filled my mouth... hmmmmm......
And at 7pm........
My sister-in-law brought dinner... 
Yum Yum....
She told me it is just simple food, hope I don't mind....
Mind?? I should be the one who say..
"Hope you don't mind cooking for me"
hahahahaa...
How to mind when someone cooks for you and bringing it over....
Must QUICKLY say THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
And that was not all...
She brought over a Big Chunk of her homemade Fruit Cake as well...
hahahahaa...
IN a matter of an hour, I have TWO chunks of Fruit Cakes!!
I can have a fruit cake party now...
hahahahaa....
I guess....
Christmas is not Christmas without Fruit Cakes!

WISHING YOU MY READERS
A BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
