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 after sprinkling with sesame seeds.... 
One of those days when I am in the cooking mode!


  1. I like the broccoli with prawns better without the sesame seeds but those seeds are good for health, the oil too. That is why the Koreans use them a lot in their cuisine.

    Never mind! My hair is a mess too. Not going anywhere, nobody will don't care lah!!! LOL!!!

  2. hair also need trimming. Me too very sien to install things. I bought a pull up exercise gadget last year. Up till now it is still in the box. LOL!

  3. Broccoli and prawns dish sure is delicious! I also bought two items still in their boxes. 😅 The corn in the soup looks tasty too!

  4. I am not good at installing gadgets too, that is why all the gadgets in my house are all very primitive lol!!

    The broccoli with prawns dish look so tasty and yummy.

    I saw corn soup and what is that third dish?

  5. Yes, the hair can be a big problem! I hope it is not very hot there for poor Labbie! We had to go over a year with no haircuts, our hair was wild!

  6. The sesame seeds did make the difference. Haha.

    Good luck with the hair (fur) grooming.

  7. Poor Labby, she must be feeling terribly uncomfortable and hot in this weather. I too badly need a hair cut but holding on for another few weeks. I couldn't stand the fringe poking my eyes so I took a pair of scissors and trim it shorter. The sides and back will have to wait for my hair dresser.

  8. I am curious whether you could buy fresh prawns from the markets there. I could not find the fresh seafood while I was a student in the East Coast US. I think that's because the ocean is too faraway.

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
