My Travel Pass "Passed"

NO HIGH HOPES NOR EXPECTATION when my son applied on behalf for me to the relevant authorities for approval to travel during this period.  

The day I received the vaccination appointment, my son started the application process online.  Though the terms and conditions did not apply to my reason of traveling, we just gave it a try, after all, no harm done by submitting, my son said.  Two weeks later, I received the response stating "Rejected" and the reason given was "Incomplete Supporting Documents."  Oh, does that mean to say if we submit more documents, we stand a chance?  Our hopes were lifted.... at least it did not mention that I do not have a valid reason to go..... 

My son reapplied again, this time he submitted more than 10 documents and whatever certificates irrevelent or not, he just uploaded them.  Appeal letters from both sides were also submitted.... and after that, we just prayed... and wait....

And a week or two later, I received their email... this time... APPROVED!

We were really really surprised that I was given the opportunity to exit Malaysia.... Thanks to the officer-in-charge whoever you are!  

The Travel Pass is valid for 3 months only and by the time my second dose of vaccination was done, it was almost one month.  Made the necessary arrangements and preparations such as police permit and PCR swab test, it was another half a month later.... and I was on the way to the airport during the last weekend to board..... finally!

Bye Ipoh... till I see you again... don't-know-when....

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!! No wonder you have been very quiet all this while. I was getting rather worried.

    San Francisco? Your sister's place? Your son is in Scotland, right? You're not going there?

    Well, wherever you are, take care, stay safe, stay well. God bless, you and all your loved ones.

    1. Btw, where's your girl now? Still in the Uni? So she is left alone on her own in Ipoh...or has she followed you to the US?

      I guess Andy is still in Johore? That state is like Sarawak, many cases every day.

      Yesterday, Sarawak was No. 2 in the nation, so scary, this Delta Variant!!! And now, there's a new one, MU!!!

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....

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

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...
