My Chinese New Year Eve Dishes

SMALL AFFAIR .... This Chinese New Year Eve is a very different one from my 6 decades, different not in terms of food but in terms of company.

A small scale this year, only three of us and I just did one dish... Soup!  The rest of the dishes were "contributed" from my neighbour and my sister-in-law.  I did not go over this year, she has four eating in her house which is a rare sight, all along there are more than ten each year.

Anyway, keep safe and still be happy, that is all that counts!!

For lunch we had these dishes... 
Bak Kut Teh given by my neighbour.... 
Ju Hu Char given by my neighbour too....
So nice of them!
Our CNY Eve lunch.... 
Then around 4.30pm these came...
I ordered from a friend's friend....
This Poon Choy it is called...
It cost RM238...
They gave the pot too....
I just have to heat the gravy and pour over these ingredients....
And then warm it up over the stove for awhile....
Meanwhile, my sister-in-law brought over these for me...
Black fungus with pork belly....
And our dinner for three....with the remaining soup....
We finished the dishes except for the Poon Choy...
There's one third left and I will do something with it one of these days!
LOL.... 
How about your CNY Eve this year?
Any Special Reunion?

  2. You are so lucky to be blessed with so many dishes! I did not have a reunion dinner as I prefer to stay home and stay safe. Hopefully next year's CNY will be back to normal. Let me now wish you Gong Xi Fa Cai!

  5. Ah, at least you have some sort of reunion dinner with a total of 3 pax including yourself. All food looks good. The poon choy gives the pot as well, so convenient!

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
