Lockdown Mind And Food

LOCKDOWN MIND...

Today is the third day since I last took my car out for a drive, so this morning I have to do that again.  The night before I have thought of 101 things to buy from the sundry shop.  When I reached there, I could remember one thing only, ie. a 5kg packet of rice.  I told the young boy my problem.... "Give this auntie a minute to recall, ok?"  He reassured me... "no problem, take your time to think, you are the only customer now."  He gave me some hints, flour, eggs... bread...fruits?  And then I suddenly remember, yes, for baking, then my 101 things came to my mind.  LOL....  One lesson learnt, next time I better write a list!  Or think first before getting out from the car!

My breakfast and lunch consist of the following....
Half boiled egg and a hot cross bun given by my friend... 
She gave me 4 and this was the only piece left for breakfast... 
For lunch, I braised pork ribs with tomatoes, ginger and small chilies... 
Greens as per above with fish cake... 
Two dishes for the whole day.... 
Or perhaps add an egg for dinner...
Simple dishes for the day!

  3. I never make a list plus when I go out to stock up on food, I will not have time to look at the list. I will be running here and there, rushing and grabbing anything and everything. May end up buying things I do not intend to buy and forget what I want to buy in the first place. Never mind! At a time like this, sometimes we just have to do without.

  4. I love hot cross bun. Used to buy from bakery but not every time it has it. Now with the lockdown, it mostly sell bread.

    I give list to my man when he goes shopping. He is in charge of shopping right now. Luckily he has no problem when it comes to grocery shopping.

    Easy to cook for a person or two. Not like me, need to think of menu everyday, fit for all as each has their own preference and taste. Headache.

  5. You were so cute and funny to head to sundry shop with 101 things that dwindled to only 1 item! Muahahahaha

    I normally have to key all these check lists into my phone. No sane person has the brains to remember so many chores and shopping errands.

    I love all your meals. Simple yet tasty and nutritious! Hope you will enjoy staying at home now. I worry that when MCO is over, I want to stay away from office.

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
