Covid-19 MCO : Day #81 (Our First Restaurant Dine In)

Yes! Last night was Friday night, our date nite hee..hee... And guess what? My partner suggested why not we eat out?

Covid-19 MCO : Day #80 (Closed.Closed.Closed)

So is the MCO going to be lifted? At the time of writing, no decision has been made as yet. Maybe we will know today. But I guess it doesn't really make any difference since everything seems to have returned to "normal".

Covid-19 MCO : Day #79 (Fried Chicken Again)

I was craving for fried chicken again. No. Not KFC. The last  fried chicken I had was Texas Chicken ordered via Grabfood from the Damansara Uptown branch. It was not that good and the packaging was bad. The box was torn at the bottom >.< (happened again a second time, so no more ordering from Damansara Uptown)

Covid-19 MCO : Day #78 (Saturday Nite's All Right)

Last Saturday I went to work again. I wanted to clear a few things and prep for the coming week. I feel a lot better when I sacrifice a Saturday to have a peaceful week ahead.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #77 (Bad Pizza. Worse BBQ Chicken Wings)

I had a craving for pizza. The last time I had this pizza was in Kuala Terengganu when my partner and I drove all the way back to my hometown to pay our last respects to my late grandmother.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #76 (Dicing with Danger. Ribeye. Rare)

Parasites! Always cook your meat thoroughly! That was my late grandfather's advice. My late grandpa was a very well read man. He did not receive tertiary education due to lack of opportunity.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #74 (Mala Hotpot Curiosity Satisfied)

This happened yesterday, Friday. After having prepared my meals for a few days in a row, it was time to take a break. What to eat?

Covid-19 MCO : Day #73 (I Eat Too Much)

That's nothing new. My plate or rather glass container runneth over. Melimpah-limpah like that.   I can eat and I eat a lot.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #72 (He Popular)

His cooking lah. Macam popular to amuse you. When I posted that "He Heard You" and cooked a new dish which was a lot more colorful than his usual porridge-fried mackerel-eggs dinner, I was taken by surprise the next morning when that post shot up to number one on "Your Favorites For The Week".

Covid-19 MCO : Day #71 (Recalling a Past Uncomfortable Dining Experience)

This post is about my experience at Hayaki@Damansara Uptown way before the MCO. This restaurant has been around like for ages. The name Hayaki sounds Japanese to me hah..hah.. It is near Village Park, occupying the corner lot, so it has a big floor space.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #70 (My Slimming Food)

Slimming is always a subject of interest isn't it? Weight loss is a multi billion dollar industry and I admit, every time I see an article on how to "bust belly fat effortlessly" or "what to eat to burn fat" or something to that effect, it gets my undivided attention.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #68 (Healthy Cheat Day Meal)

Today is Sunday and Sunday is cheat day where I can eat nonsense as much as I want. But today, sempena Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, and besides Grabfood sent me a message saying that service today might be slow, I decided to cook me a cheat meal. A healthy one.

Saturday, 23 May 2020

Covid-19 MCO : Day #67 (Work Queue Work)

Today is Saturday but I went to work. It was a last minute sort of thing because something came up and I didn't want to spend time in the office next week.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #66 (My Friday Sushi Fix)

Are there any sushi fans out there? When was the last time you had sushi? For me it felt like 100 years ago.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #65 (Haiz. Everything is Yours)

I did mention that I wanted my cat to give up the 3-seater sofa by putting towels that she does not like on the cushions.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #64 (Last Night's Dinner)

When I got home yesterday evening, I was hungry. It is so nice to open the fridge to find containers of ready cooked food. All the hours spent on Sunday prep was so worth it.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #63 (Thinking of Nasi Kerabu)

Way before the MCO, I had the hots for Hayaki's Nasi Kerabu. Via Grabfood  because I somehow couldn't bring myself to sit alone at Hayaki@Damansara Uptown. Why? Why? Why, you ask.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #62 (When Will I Eat Out Again?)

I haven't decided yet but boy, do I miss eating out! The other day on the way to the bank I spotted Home's Kitchen. They are still in operation and they opened way before the MCO.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #61 (Same Old Food Prep)

It is Sunday and I was feeling particularly industrious this morning. I got up at 4:30am and by 5:30am I was already pling pling pliang pliang in the kitchen.

Saturday, 16 May 2020

Covid-19 MCO : Day #60 (Noodles Again)'s day #60 already. So fast, eh? Today I was supposed to eat steamed chicken and vegetables. Slimming food. Boring food. Blearkkssss...

Covid-19 MCO : Day #59 (Meat Eater)

Today I had another piece of steak and I made sure not to overcook it like I did the other day. I always put a timer on but I tend to allow it to cook longer than the time set because I don't want to eat a rare steak. Medium rare is fine but not rare. Geli. hah..hah..

Covid-19 MCO : Day #58 (Nonya Chang All The Way From Melaka)

This MCO, I tell you, is all about food as far as I am concerned. I see what people eat, where they ordered it from, I get tempted and I start ordering too. Case in point - Damansara Kim Bak Chang.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #57 (What Does He Eat?)

I have been showing you what I eat, be it sendiri masak or delivered by Grabfood. Some of you (or rather one of you) are curious what does my partner eat?

Covid-19 MCO : Day #56 (My Wanton Mee Fix)

This happened on Day #54 (Sunday) which I have designated as my cheat day. Cheat Day = No fasting, eat whatever I want, eat as much as I want.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #55 (Domino's Roast Chicken for Lunch)

Got ah? Domino's got roast chicken, ah? I checked the menu online and the closest thing I could find was Chicken Wings BBQ. Maybe this is the one.

Heh..heh..heh.. So happy! Finally my Kueh Bingka Labu jadi lah! This morning I fed my lahling one slice and he said it was pretty good. Ho chiak

Covid-19 MCO : Day #53 (Overcooked Steak)

Today I overcooked a piece of steak. Bah! I have to adjust my timing. I set a timer beside me and many times, I have no confidence in my judgement and I always err on the side of overcooking.

Thursday, 7 May 2020

Covid-19 MCO : Day #51 (I Lost My Food Photos)

I was very careless today and accidentally deleted the photos that I took of my lunch. Bah! So what you see up there is the uncooked chicken wings. Paiseh...paiseh...

Covid-19 MCO : Day #50 (Pickled Green Chilies)

It is day number five oh already and to those of us who have returned to work/reopened for business, it feels like things are back to almost normal except for the face masks, temperature screening and social distancing at public places.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #49 (Angry with The Eggs)

So I am showing you the ugly side of me. The one that can throw a tantrum while peeling eggs. Look at the poor eggs, so violently treated.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #48 (What MCO???)

I went to office today. It was thankfully very smooth and peaceful. I managed to catch up on my work and I am very pleased.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #47 (Butter Cake)

Yesterday evening I baked a Butter Cake because I found 3 blocks of Golden Churn butter in the fridge. These will expire in November and Golden Churn being so expensive, I do not want to waste it.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #46 (Salted Egg Fried Chicken Nasi Lemak)

It is Saturday, day #46 of the MCO and counting down to Monday blues. Oh no, more like Sunday evening blues. Do you get that on Sundays during normal pre-MCO days?

Covid-19 MCO : Day #45 (It's My Blog Anniversary!)

Covid-19 MCO : Day #44 (I Ate Big Prawns Today. Jealous Or Not?)

Before the Chinese New Year, my brother (the married one) gifted me a packet of large prawns. He was sharing his stash of prawns (gifted by his wife's customer) with me and of course I gratefully accepted. Rezeki jangan ditolak!

Covid-19 MCO : Day #41 (Today Eat Dumplings)

Covid-19 MCO : Day #39 (Boring Lunch)

Today's lunch is a little lackluster. Sure there is a bunch of siew yoke but what, accompanied by leftover broccoli and pineapple?

Friday, 24 April 2020

Covid-19 MCO : Day #38 (MCO Salad)

It looks like we have to stay at home a lot little bit longer with the MCO going into the 4th phase from 29-04-2020 to 12-05-2020. In his speech yesterday evening, our PM hinted that the MCO may be further extended beyond Hari Raya. Haiz...

Covid-19 MCO : Day #37 (Pasta Kerabu)

I am waiting with bated breath for the government announcement on whether the Movement Control Order (MCO) would be lifted as scheduled. The 3rd phase of the MCO is supposed to end 28-04-2020.

Covid-19 MCO : Day #35 (Nasi Lemak)

On day #35 of the MCO, Tenaga Nasional (TNB) decides to commence maintenance work in my housing area. What? Duduk Rumah Diam Diam with no electricity?

Covid-19 MCO : Day #34 (Sambal Belacan Nyum! Nyum!)

Anybody loves sambal belacan? With sambal belacan, fried fish and vegetables, I can eat two plates of rice. That was in the past lah, now I limit my intake of rice (except during my cheat days).

Sunday, 19 April 2020

Covid-19 MCO : Day #33 (Chicken Rice)

It is Sunday, day #33 and still counting. I wonder if the MCO would be lifted week after next. Phase 3 of the MCO is scheduled to end 28-04-2020. What are you hoping for?

Covid-19 MCO : Day #32 (Roast Chicken)
