Swimming Is Hers, Reading Is Mine

TIME FOR HER TO DESTRESS... BY SWIMMING!  While she swims, I read... that is the least I can do since I am not a swimmer and I wish I know how.  Why do I have water phobia?  I just cannot breathe when I am in a pool surrounded by the bluish water... why am I like that?  Swimming is a good form of exercise, all the limbs in our bodies are involved, from the head to the legs, from the left to the right, it is all good!  Is it too late for me to learn now?  Definitely a NO... but for me, it is a Yes!  I am so SCARED of water!

But I could do one thing here.... dip myself in the Jacuzzi which is around one foot deep, yeah... that will be fine for me... for now.... meanwhile, I can only "enjoy" the pool breeze with the sun setting right into my eyes....
Taken facing against the sun... it was after 6pm.... 
Too glaring for me.... and I walked around taking some pictures before I settled down...

 Instead of swimming, I followed the swimmer by footsteps.... North... 
South.... 
Facing me.... 
Un-facing me..... 
I cannot swim and that is the reason why she must Know.... 
And I am glad she does!

Well, I really wish I could join her in the water.... 
But for now, reading will be just FINE!

  1. She has the pool all to herself! So your company is good. They say do not swim alone, in case of cramps or something. So you are watching over her. As for YOU swimming...you do so much walking and other exercise that it is O.K. if you do not swim.

  8. I am not a strong swimmer. I would like to conquer my fear of the deep end due to a long standing accident. I miss swimming in a warm sea.

    1. Oh sea is more dangerous I guess..sometimes we do not know the currents in the water..

  9. Yes, swimming in the sea can be more dangerous but I take calculated risk. I swam a lot in the Mediterranean sea last summer. In one stretch of the sea, the water was freezing cold even on a hot blazing day. It was ok when one was active while thermal waves in another part of the Mediterrean sea kept the water at a comfortable temperature even in winter.

  10. Swimming is the best exercise that could tone whole body at one go. That would help us to look slimmer in the quickest way. There is a huge pool right outside my front door yet I hardly swim. Excuses excuses!

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

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....

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...
