The Chinese New Year Journey Down South

TIME TO REPORT BACK TO WORK AFTER THE FESTIVE SEASON....

After a long break, it is going down south again, we need to start work in order to bring food on the table.  Oh, not me though, I have my share of working already for the past thirty years or more.  It is time for me to sit back and see others work instead.  Aha.... no, I am just kidding...... Of course, I still work, only difference is that now there is no more boss hovering behind me, I am a so-called Home Minister or in other words a "Housemaid?"  LOL...  I am paid to manage the homes, I clean, I mop, I wash, I cook... these are endless work which I do not really like but have to....  The only consolation is that I can do at my own pace and time and get paid regardless... LOL.....

So... here I am with my Two Bosses... wherever they go, I follow.... This time I do not have to drive, I just have to sit back and relax for a few hours journey.   We stopped in Sg. Buloh for a break and we went to take the most expensive food court meal we ever had in our whole life!  Quote from son.
The Trio going on the journey with us.... 

Wherever they go, I just follow.... 
Stopped for a break in Sg Buloh corner coffeeshop...and had these....
And we also ordered this...
Fresh Garoupa with noodles...
Each of us ordered a bowl.... 
And a big bowl of Fish Balls.... 
For five bowls of noodles plus a bowl of Fish Head and Fish Balls, 
the bill came to a whooping RM160!
Believe it or not, it is true.... 
The lady was laughing when she collected the money but certainly not us... 
Well, I say it again... must be the Chinese New Year prices...
Then we proceeded on our journey after the "heavy" lunch.... 
Raining at certain parts...
Anyway, all was good, Thank God...
We reached our destination around 7pm just in time for dinner!

  5. I dis not know you had taken a job. But now you can choose your hours, and that is great! Here, we call these house tenders maids. One of my good friends does this. You can make pretty good money, and it is a good job for retired people. Being helpful is always good!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
