Hotpot On A Rainy Day

NON STOP RAINING IN IPOH...  and I heard many places as well.  For the first time, neither fan or air con need to be switched on yesterday, so nice to sleep with the cooling air blowing in through the windows.  On the negative side, there were floods here and there, landslides especially in Camerons.... many places were affected by the non-stop rain for the past two days.  

Today is slightly better, no rain but still cloudy.  The non-stop raining for the more than 24 hours reminded me of Noah's Ark... Yesterday I was thinking whether the rain would continue on and on, it has been a long time since it rained non stop for more than 24 hours.

Since we did not feel like going out in the rain, we had our three meals in the house.  Started with toasted bread and half boiled eggs in the morning, followed by hotpot lunch at 3pm (by the time we finished preparing everything.... No more greens in the fridge and the only option is to call SOS to Tesco and the greens were delivered within 40 minutes.  Quickly I boiled the soup...... and only by 3pm, we filled our hungry tummies.... 

Greens, luncheon meat, fresh prawns and wanton noodles.... 
For 4 hungry people.... 
Our pot of treasure consisting with just vegetables... 
LOL... 
With the pouring rain outside, we were enjoying our hotpot lunch inside.... 
Simple and yet satisfying....

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
