Dinner At Tian Lai Garden, Gelang Patah, Johor

RECEIVED A MESSAGE from my cousin in Singapore stating that he will be coming with his family to JB the next day.  Great!!  I was all ready to welcome them and my cousin kept in touch with me all the way from Singapore till the customs.  After that, no more news from him... Alamak!!  His data must have shut off by the time they crossed over to Malaysia.  How eh... I have not confirmed where to meet and all that with him.  He also must have forgotten about the wifi when he drove over.

Anyway, I took the chance and drove all the way to AEON Bukit Indah, they surely have to pass by there on the way.  We did mention AEON but never confirm where and when to wait.  So I estimated... I parked the car and waited at the grocery entrance.  After some 15 minutes or so, a call from Messenger came in.  Phew... they were just outside AEON at Block D.  Great!! True enough, they did not have data when they came in to Malaysia and one of my cousin quickly subscribed to a plan just opposite the mall.  So all turned out well....

I took them for lunch at Tea Garden, just opposite... and after that, they came over to my little nest to look see and rest.... After a couple of hours, we drove to AEON again, this time to do some shopping and I also ended up buying a piece from Padini. :)  By then it was almost 5.30pm and my cousin suggested going to Gelang Patah for dinner.  Great!!  I have not been there before.... Let's GO!

We went to Tian Lai Seafood Garden along Jalan Leong Bee, it was the first time for them too, using Google Maps, it took around 20 minutes to reach.  Nice timing, no crowd yet and by the time we finished our dinner, the place was fully occupied.
My sengat picture of the entrance... 
Looks like it is a house being renovated to cater its seafood business...
All the dishes were recommended by the "Loe Sai" *Captain*
Curry Pork Ribs in Claypot...
My picture didn't do any credit to the tasty curry....
The curry was thick and not over spicy.... 
Their signature yellow beancurd.. it was yellowish inside... 
Maybe made from pumpkin.... I didn't ask... 
Spicy dry chilies clams.... 
Ching Loong Choy.... 
And the best was the Claypot Fish Bass... 
Thick skin full of collagen, so they say.... 
The meal cost around RM170 or so with drinks and rice... 
My auntie and cousins... 
Thanks for the treat, folks!!

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... 

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...
