Food For The Unwell - Mee Suah

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I AM HOME SICK...

Not the actual "homesick" sick but at home feeling unwell... Not sure when the last time was, if I were still working, I would have taken two days medical leave and rest at home.  Alas, now every day is a holiday, so sick or no sick, I can rest all I like.

Started with "itchiness" in the throat, stinging and dryness and I filled myself with water and more water.  Water means fruit fuices, lime, hot oatmeal and anything to soothe the dryness... Suddenly appetite was also gone.. the taste buds vanished in thin air... Rice is out of the question, I want to eat something oil-less, clear and soupy....
Late in the evening, my girl bought this home... 
She said this brand is nice.... 
Yes, very familiar brand, I think I ate this when I was a young girl... 
Each bundle tied up with a thin red thread.... 
Would one be enough?
No, I ended up making two for each person... 
Put in lots of greens, meatballs, minced meat and two lighten beaten eggs....
Might not look appetizing but I "walloped" them all.... 
No appetite is an understatement... LOL... 
Oh, I want to get well real fast... 
I haven't even TASTE any Durians as yet!
huhuhuuuu...

  1. Whoah! I also ate from the same box of mee suah with the old God of Longevity brand. I remember this well before Maggi Mee flooded the market. Now I wanna go and buy one box to cook for myself. My servant used to thrown in one egg with half cube of chicken stock. Presto!

    I would advise you to buy a good brand of Lavender's essential oil. It could guarantee to prevent any sore or itchy throats away by just rubbing your affected spot on your neck. I have been doing that for years for instant relief and no more sore throats.

  7. Speedy recovery, Claire!
    Meesua is also nice with chicken soup, especially the Foochow red wine chicken soup.

  8. Oh Claire, I am so sorry you are sick. Maybe it is a cold? You are almost never sick! But this looks like a good meal for a sick person...protein, broth, and greens. I hope you get well really fast!

  9. I had itchy throat too, just yesterday and because of the itchy throat, I cough a lot.

    It is good to eat mee sua rather than rice when sick

    Get well soon

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... 

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
