My Full Time Job In San Jose

FULL TIME GRANDMA... LOL...

I have been looking forward to seeing my grandson ever since he was born and I thought that it would not be possible at all until he knows how to run.  LOL.. That was what I told my son, with the never ending Covid virus, we did not know when we would be allowed to travel.  

Now I am really here, it has been more than a month now and I am more or less settled down, being a grandmother and nanny, two in one.  LOL... How many years since I last take care of a baby?  More than two decades and I am back to refreshing course with this active boy!  He is going to be six months and still needs full attention to his needs.  So my real job here is just to look at him... look after him.... 

My "job" starts around 8am, I prepare breakfast in the morning and then breathe in the morning air while waiting for my "baby boss" to wake up.  He is usually bubbly in the morning and as evening comes, he becomes more cranky cos he faces more difficulty to sleep throughout the night.  Old granny here does not "jaga" nights, I would be very groggy if I do not have enough sleep. 

In between his naps, I quickly prepare lunch, simple ones for my daughter-in-law who works from home and for myself.  That goes for dinner too.... and time seems to fly each day.  That is why my blog has to be put on hold till I am really-really free ... 

Morning breakfast on most mornings.... 
Noodles for lunch.... 
Yes, the pantry is full of dry noodles....
I just have to prepare the ingredients to go with the noodles.... 
On some evenings, my son would buy back dinner.... 
Over here, there are always fries to go with fried stuff....
On this particular day, we had our dinner in the garden....

  2. Ho mia! Ho mia! We say in Hokkien! Meaning, a good life!!! Aha!!! At least your DIL works from home so you are not left alone with the baby. Always good to have someone else around.

    Your noodles look very good, the first one.

  5. I am sure this is one job which you enjoy very much. You are going to miss your baby boss when it is time to return to Malaysia.

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...
