The Long Journey From South To North

TIME TO HIT THE ROADS AGAIN... Yes, our ten days stay in Johor has come to an end.  We woke up early in the morning, packed our stuff into the car, bade farewell to our little nest and adjourned to have our breakfast before we headed for the highway.  During our stay, we did not have Dim Sum till the very last moment, my girl suggested going to Changman.  According to my son, prices have gone up steeply... oh well, nothing surprising, everything seems to have gone up and I told him that we would go to check our the prices... we simply cannot leave JB without going for our regular place of Dim Sum... 
 My girl's favourite BBQ dumplings... she finished the three of them... 
I took a small bite only.. they are mini-sized anyway...
I had Chicken Koay Teow soup... my girl took a small portion.... 
Steamed Chee Cheong Fun with BBQ pork...
And a plate of three mini egg tarts...
Before we left, we also packed some cakes and dumplings... 
Just in case we get hungry on the way... 
We started our journey around 10.30am.... 
Weather was good, thank God... traffic was smooth.... 
And my girl drove 3/4 of the five hours plus journey... 
Young people's eyes are always sharper, right!
We reached Ipoh around 4pm... 
This is the first time both of us drove alone without the guys.... 
For the journey to and fro, the expenses came to around RM250...

  4. 5 hours? Wowwww!!! That's a long time but then again, you have nice highways there. Here, you would probably need 10 hours, same distance.

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...
