What To Do Whilst Waiting For Your Food To Come

As I’m a big fan of going out to restaurants, there are always a few times when I’m slightly ahead of my fellow eating companions. And so recently I’ve been devising a few ways that I can stay productive when I’m waiting to be sat down at the table. After all there’s nothing worse than having to wait a long time to eat that large bowl of dry curry chicken noodles!
A lot of the time I will take a book to pass the time, but recently I’ve started taking my smartphone which is packed full of great entertainment regarding film trailers, online games, and even some further restaurant ideas.

When I’m meeting friends for dinner, we often have a big meal before heading out to the movies. And I’m a massive fan of the IMDB app which is specially catered for smartphones and tablets and gives me an exhaustive list of all the upcoming cinematic attractions.

The great thing about this is that it allows me to switch over to the YouTube app so that I can check out all of the trailers for the movies and see whether it’s going to be a suitable film for the night’s viewing entertainment.

However, there are a few times when we’ll be a little more daring and follow up that sweet pear dessert with a suitably glamorous trip to the local casino.

Something about the chandeliers and bright lights of casinos always goes down particularly well after a lavish meal. And seeing as the Betway online gaming site allows you to to get a sign up bonus so that you can quickly and cheaply play their roulette and poker games, it’s provided a pretty good distraction whilst waiting for friends to turn up on a pre-casino meal!

There are also some great apps that can help you find out a little more about the evening’s meal too. I particularly like reading some Malaysian recipe ideas on the Cook Malay app so that I can find out which spices make each of the dishes so appetising. And the app is also good for explaining what some of the more mysterious items on the menu are too!

And then if I’m being particularly lazy and can’t face heading out on an evening, I simply fire up the Deliveroo app and enjoy great takeout food from real restaurants whilst playing some of those endlessly enjoyable casino games - all from the comfort of a smartphone!

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... 

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
