Wearing A Mask At Home Is Safe Too

4TH & 5TH DAY OF COVID CONFINEMENT...

What comes to my mind each morning when I wake up?  These questions...   What shall I eat today, breakfast... lunch and dinner... What shall I cook?  I guess I am not alone thinking about the preparation of food.  We need to ration, right?  Not sure when the shops or markets might be closed one day.  Now the situation is so unpredictable.  

Reading and hearing too much about the bad news is not good though I need to know what is happening.  Staying at home alone too long without talking to anyone can have adverse effects.  That is why I stay sane by talking on the phone, video call, or whatever it takes just to have some voice talking back to me.  LOL.... 

These days it is common to see many of us put up what we cook online.  Facebook, Instagram, blogs, vblogs, we share and show people what we have each day, get some ideas on what to cook for our family, in my case, for myself... 
I start off the day daily with 2 slices of bread with Skippy peanut butter...
Two half boiled eggs... but for this case, it is more than half cooked.. 3/4 cooked in fact...
I was a bit too greedy on the first day... one egg should be enough, not two... 
After that day, I just ate two slices of bread minus the egg...
Have to Ration.... LOL... 
I braised some pork ribs with radish, tomatoes, red chili and lemongrass... 
Shared some with my neighbour... 
Had Kolo mee with this dish.. 
Fried rice for dinner...
Big heavy meals, right?
For snacks in between, eating guava marinated with "dry tangerine skin"... 

My friend forwarded this message to me... 

Please wear a mask at home also, specially when alone.....
This may or may not prevent Corona 
but will surely stop you from eating more... 

I couldn't agree more... LOL!!!

  5. Muahahahahaha! I think that's funny to wear a mask at home. I have been snacking all the CNY cookies while watching TV. There are hampers waiting to be opened too. HELP!

    I am just the opposite. I would ask my wife what we should eat the next day's lunch and dinner.

  6. Your cooking looks so good, Claire!! And think of the money you will be saving now. Enough to buy really fancy meals when the staying inside is over.

  7. The only way to stay connected and sane is through the social media and phone calls. This "stay home" improves your cooking and they all look delicious. Surprisingly, I have no mood to snack during this time, maybe because not burning up calories by staying home and sitting down alot.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
