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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
