Do Something Different & Take Up A New Hobby!

No matter how busy you are - you always make time in your life to try new things. To stay vital and alive it's crucial that you continue to push your brain and your body to new heights. A challenge is something that should not be avoided. Someone that constantly pushing themselves to reach new heights will be rewarded and will thrive. You don't need to be young to learn. Taking up a new hobby will spark your imagination and pique your interest in a variety of things. Don't miss out on learning something new just because it feels alien to you. It's always hard to be a beginner at something but once you start to get the hang of it, you'll feel so proud of yourself!


1. Learn to play a new instrument
There's something truly magical about learning to play a new instrument - especially when you are a little older! I can be truly rewarding to take yourself off to a lesson once every week and pick up a new skill. It will completely take you away from your comfort zone and push you to remember things that you might not have thought about before. Playing an instrument is also a great trick to pull out unexpectedly at party to entertain people.


2. Start a collection
Whether you want to start a beautiful stamp collection or prefer to research and discover rare zim currency; building a collection is something you can put your heart and soul into. The wonderful thing about collecting is that it can purely be for you. No one else even has to be bothered about how much you have. You will feel an enormous sense of satisfaction when you find something to add that you've been looking for for ages! Start off slowly and order things is a way that you'll continue to enjoy. You never know, you could end up making your collection worth something!


3. Begin to paint
You might not have picked up a set of paints since you were at high school. If this is the case, you might have forgotten just how soothing drawing and painting and being creative it. You don't have to be the most amazing artist to feel good about doing it. Painting and drawing are more about learning what you like and what you find difficult. It also gives you the chance to improve your existing skills. You will build your confidence with it over time so don't give up.


4. Knit something
Knitting is a hobby that is portable. You can take your knitting needles and your wool with you anywhere that you go. It gives you the perfect excuse to put down your phone and focus your energy elsewhere. If you have small babies in your family, set yourself a task of knitting them something cute like a scarf. Everyone will think you're very clever and you'll get such a sense of joy when you see them wearing it.

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....

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...
