Tiffin Here, Tiffin There

 TIFFIN CARRIER... is now put into full use.  For many years, both my tiffins were lying in the kitchen cupboard, but now, I cannot leave home without them!   That is one of the changes in life since 2020 till don't-know-when.  The other day I thought of buying one more set, the La Gourmet, selling those colourful tiffin... thank goodness I did not.. me and my spending, that never change!

MCO will be starting in Perak from tomorrow but for many days already, I have not dine out already.  I still go out in the mornings, to get breakfast and go to the small market in my area if I run out of food stuff.  From tomorrow onwards, we are not allowed to dine out, only take-aways within the 10km radius from our homes.  I guess I have to log in youtube to check out more cooking/baking as what I did last year in March 2020.  LOL... 

Below are my breakfast/lunch meals.... I only cook dinner.... too stressful to cook three meals a day!  LOL.. 

Roasted pork with koay teow in clear soup...
Of course, this has no kick... 
But eaten with curry pork skin is a different matter.... 
Even though the soup is in a different tiffin, by the time I poured in, 
the food does not look as good as served in the shop.... 
Even the mint leaves have "disappeared"...
Dug out a few pieces of roasted pork for photo taking... LOL... 
Curry is anytime more "kick"than the clear soup!
Bought for lunch but couldn't finish them all....
So dinner same food... no choice...
Nowadays cannot afford to be picky on food.... 
This is for today's lunch, I went at 10.30am...
The food displayed at the shop were still fresh and neat... 
For the above food, it cost RM16...
For that price, I have fish, chicken and 
5 types of vegetables with free soup and rice...
Too bad the shop is quite far from my place...

  1. From Suituapui: Oooo...the fish curry looks good! What dumplings are those, so transparent! Must be good!!! I keep my tiffin carrier in my car boot but so far I have not used it yet - we have been stocking up a lot of food in the house and doing the cooking ourselves, no need to tapao. Wait till the food runs out...or till we get lazy.

  3. Yes. Very good effort to use tiffin to tapau. I have 2 tiffin carriers. One is 4 tiers and another is 3. I should put them to use but I seldom tapau dishes nowadays. Mostly cook at home or the most, order delivery.

  4. Good to use tiffins. All your food looks very good. I guess people now have not been through war times so little little things like having to buy takeaway food, want to complain about food not as nice as dine in.

  5. The curry looks delicious to me. so sorry about your lockdown, do they know how long it will last? Are people there getting the vaccine?

  6. Yes, it is time to use our tiffin carriers again. At least we can still go out to places within 10km to buy take away food. So we still get quite a number of choices, only thing is take away food not so presentable for photography.

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
