Running Errands On The 6th Day Of Chinese New Year

STARTED OFF THE DAY going to the petrol station and the regular attendant who is mute and dumb, came and helped me, wiped my front and back mirror, checked the engine oil and water and after giving the thumbs up, I gave him a red packet.  Not much and he reciprocated with two palms signifying Happy New Year.  I used the same gesture to wish him back, thumbs up and we drove off.  A nice start off for the day.... 

Then we adjourned to have breakfast in Keng Nam, a corner coffeeshop in town, famous for their curry noodles and Kaya glutinous rice.  However we did not order curry noodles but a plate of Chee Cheong Fun instead.  After breakfast I drove to the mechanic, did some alignment and balancing costing RM90.  Went to bank while waiting and the last stop is the mall, did some groceries and by the time we reached home, it was almost 1pm.  Time really passes very fast each day!

A dash of hot and sweet sauce... RM6
A set of toasted bread with half boiled eggs... 
Can't really see the other half boiled egg... 
Been drooling for this.... 
And while I was sitting there, the orders came non-stop for this dessert... 
Sticky rice with sweet Kaya... 

As for yesterday's dinner, I just boiled porridge and ate with these 2 dishes...
Lightly pan fried cod fish... 
I bought this for RM38... 
Long time I did not take so it justifies the pricing... LOL... 
And I added greens to the leftover dish of pork ribs and arrowhead... 
Now I am thinking what to cook for tonight...

  1. Yes, good for you! I also give tips to those attendants at the petrol station, just ask them to keep the change usually. Pity them, having to stand for hours in the heat...plus I hear they are not paid very much. So sad.

    Oooooo...I would love that sticky rice with kaya!!!

  6. I'm drooling at your pan-fried cod fish....haiz, RM38 for such a small piece (is that half a piece?) :D Love it lightly fried like this or steamed...used to buy at a time when it was still affordable.

  7. So kind of you to give a red packet to the attendant, I am sure his service and attitude was good too, that is why you gave the thumbs up! All the breakfast look good, the ccf, the toast with half boiled egg and the glutinous rice with kaya (which I have not tried before). Wow cod fish, yums!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
