Covid-19 Rants And Bakesville

SPIKING HIGH...  Every each day I receive worrying messages about Covid-19, how it has affects many lives in Malaysia, a country now almost having the same dilemma as in India.... sounds kind of frightening, right?  Not only that, what is more worrying is the health frontline people, their lives are at risk each day in the hospital while we have the comforts of our own home and what is most worrying is that they might have to play God one day, who to live and who to die... due to the insufficient of ICU places....  and the list goes on and on.... 

Every now and then, I used to think back.... before 2020, life was very normal for us... and then in a matter of days, our lifestyle have change so drastically.  How can we play a part in the midst of this pandemic?  Stay home, stay home and stay home... for us retirees, this can be possible, however, for those who are bread winners, it is quite an impossible task.  Anyway, I wish all of us continue to be optimistic and strong, stay positive and pray.... 

Not sure why I am 'talking' about this today.... just came to my thoughts and I pen it down.... for future reading.... 

Back to my food post, I ordered two buns from Bakesville Bakery....
Rolled oats bun with tuna fillings.... 
They were still warm and soft upon arrival...
Looks kind of plain, right?
But not so after adding Avocado in.... 
So nice and yammy!
Yes.... and very filling too!
Ordered this too... 
Egg Mayo Bun... 
Actually quite big in size... 
Ordered through Grab, costing RM20... 
My buns for one day!


  1. I am glad you talked about this. Because I am always interested in how the virus is there, and how you are doing. I sure hope it will not get as bad as India!! I am so glad you are staying safe!!

  2. I share your concerns too. In Selangor the cases are so high and chances of becoming a close contact is also high. Now at the mall, we have to show the guard our Mysejahtera status before they let us in. Your buns look good lah. I love this type of food.

  3. I worry just as much as you over this no ending pandemic. I would wish that India would accept help from China. Their ego and refusal is killing lives daily.

    I love that bread loaves with rolled oats. I am still trying to like Avocado. My wife loves to drink the Avocado Milk and eeeewwww!!! LOLOL

  4. I don't think things will ever be the same again, definitely not going to be like how it was before. I only hope for the numbers to drop and we can get on with our lives the "new normal" way - masks, physical distancing, sanitise, sanitise and sanitise and washing our hands regularly. We will just have to get used to it, no choice.

  5. Both buns looked yummy especially the egg mayo bun. Yum yum. I could skip a meal and have buns or sandwiches some day.

  6. Praying for the safety of frontliners who have to do their jobs. We just do our part to wear our masks at all times and stay home. Love that you added avocado to your tuna bun. So tasty!

  7. Been quite some time since I last had egg mayo sandwich, yums!

    Dine in will not be allowed starting from tomorrow, 16 May (Sunday) as community cases are more than imported cases.

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....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
