Friday's Close Work Lunch At Kim Wah Restaurant, Ipoh

CLOSE SHOP LUNCH IN PROGRESS...

For the past few years we make it a point to meet up to "close work" for the year before ushering in the New Year according to Chinese calendar.  "We" here are the ones working together for the past number of years, now most of us have retired except for a few younger ones left behind.  Now we retirees has outnumbered the working ones..... sooner or later, in another one or two years time, there will be only one young lady left behind... a lone ranger... while the rest of us are lazing around the house!  LOL...

Today is the day we meet up again... I went to my old office and met up with them.. and off we went to our designation, Kim Wah Restaurant in Farlim.  It was almost 1pm when we reached, Fridays are always jammed up everywhere.. the weather nowadays is flaming hot and other than that, we looked forward to our "Food Gathering" in the cool air con restaurant....
The Ten of Us... 
Half retirees, half workers... LOL...

Happy Chinese New Year!

  5. Wow.. the food so sumptuous ! I guess in this day and age of the working class, there won’t be so many gatherings of long time colleagues as people moves around as well as on contract work.

  7. It is wonderful that you keep in touch with your ex co-workers! Usually when we move away from friends, we say we will keep in touch. But rarely do. This is a very happy event!!

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...
