Yum Yum Restaurant With My Food Gang

I TOLD MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS that I lost weight while in US even when there were abundant food laid on the table each day.  Yes, unbelievable but true though it does not make sense, right?  :)

During my absence, my girl bought a weighing scale online.  Ever since I got home, I weigh myself each morning and that is why I realize that I did not gain any weight at all..... alright, this happened two weeks ago and now two weeks later, I dare not say the same thing.  The moment I put my two legs on the machine, it showed a difference of 1 kg heavier than the last.... hmmmm... just in a matter of two weeks, I gained 1 kg!  No regrets, of course.. but must watch out from now on.....

How not to gain weight when I have foodie friends eating with me every now and then?  I miss them all when I was thousand of miles away.. and now I am back, food brought us together!  These dishes below were from Yum Yum restaurant along Persiaran Greenhill, Ipoh.  Most of the food here are Nyonya styled....

Lemongrass chicken...
A new dish for me to cook one of these days... 
Steamed Okra with Sambal Dried Prawns as toppings... 
Ju Hu Cha served with fresh lettuce for wrapping....
*Sengkuang or White Turnip*
Eggs with minced meat as toppings...
Fried eggplants...
For a moment, everyone thought it was French Fries... 
Total cost for this lunch was around RM70 plus with rice and drinks...
And lastly and not least, my Lunch gang for the day!

  3. I know why you did not gain any weight on the trip. Though you ate a lot, you hiked and walked and walked!! The Lemongrass chicken looks so yummy.

  6. Each time I visited Japan or China, I could easily loose 1-2 kgs after a week as I had to walk over 20,000 steps daily. This is something I hardly do in KL. I would drive my car even to buy grocery from the shop 0.25 km from home.

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
