Smaller Portions Meals For Me

BACK TO MALAYSIAN FOOD.... after the short vacation in the Lion City...

First, we landed in Penang and I had a bout of stomach discomfort as soon as we landed.  The pain in my stomach became more intense as we reached and I had no choice but to visit one 24 hours GP after dinner.  After medication, I was feeling much better the next day.  I guess it must be due to too much rounds of food, either that... or perhaps I did not have my regular meals during the time in Singapore.  

The next day I took an early meal, warm oats, bread and went for porridge at Canton-I in Queensbay Mall.  I must be more careful with my intake, my stomach was still tender... other than that, I was fine. 
Hot porridge in Canton I...
Fish porridge actually....
Ordered some greens and a double boiled soup to go with the porridge.... 
All grins again...
I must eat moderately this time round....
That means small portions and more frequent meals.... 


  1. oh gosh....i dislike the discomfort of stomach pain, what more after a flight....

  2. Oh dear! Glad to hear you are better now. Did you have a thorough check up? Can go for a blood test. People our age will have to be more careful what we eat - cannot go on feasting like there is no tomorrow. You look fine though! Take care there!

  3. Please take good care! Yes, must take care of what we eat and when we eat.

  4. I am very scared of stomach pain, especially when travelling. Hope your tummy is settled and you are feeling better.

  5. I am so glad there was nothing serious wrong with you, Claire! You do not even look like you have been sick, you are still as beautiful as ever! I have a condition called Gastroparesis, where the food will not leave my stomach, causing pain. So I, also, need frequent small meals. Though I don't do that. Ginger gum helps!

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....

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
