Covid-19 MCO : Day #19 (Kyochon Fried Chicken)


Every afternoon during the MCO, I have been enjoying iced coffee at home.

At the office pre-MCO, once in a while I would nip over to Dal.Komm Coffee@Damansara Uptown or Baristar Coffee & Tea@Damansara Uptown for my iced Americano fix.

I had to be careful not to drink the coffee too late or else it would keep me awake at night. Miraculously at home, I don't have this problem. 


Today I had another incident with my cat. She was on the sofa when I walked into the living room and I caught a whiff of something stinky. 

So I walked over to her litter box and was confronted with this horror.


What the.... She did her business on the litter mat. I was super annoyed. So I went over to the sofa and scolded her. Why Girl? Why?? Why??? Don't you ever do that again!!!!


She knew Mommy was angry.


This is not the first time she got told off. The first time was during Chinese New Year when she sneaked up at my feet in the kitchen. I tripped on her and my metal bowls went clanking away. My Girl made a dash for the sofa as  I let out a shout. I promptly chided her for her behavior.

She was cowering on the sofa and I swore that I saw tears in her eyes (I think I may have imagined it). She was all quiet and my heart broke. Haiz..... I scooped her up in my arms and comforted her while telling her I loved her. Pulak

I imagine this is how it is like for parents when they scold their children. You actually break your own heart doing that. Am I right?


As usual she knew how to charm and melt her Mommy's heart.


So all was forgiven.

Today I did not cook. For lunch I ate the leftover mixed vegetable dish that I cooked for my partner yesterday.


I also ordered Kyochon fried chicken via Grabfood. I like the packaging as it has a tamper-proof sticker. I have watched horror videos of delivery guys pinching the food that they picked up before delivering to customers.


I ordered extra so that I can have some tomorrow. I don't mind eating cold fried chicken and it will go with a salad.


I bought one Honey Series - Wingette & Drumette and one Soy Garlic Series - Wingette & Drumette.


I transferred these into my glass containers for storage. I'll have some for dinner with a salad this evening.

My girl went out for her jalan-jalan this morning and came back for some snacks just now. I left her downstairs and came up to my study room. She did not make any noise and when that happens I am suspicious.


There you go. As predicted. 


To my relief she decided to come outside the room for her afternoon siesta.


This is where she parks herself in the evening when I have gone to bed.


I'm still thinking of yesterday's fried rice hah..hah...

  1. Cats!!! Grrrrrrr!!!!

    I'm wary about ordering food delivery as I am not comfortable not knowing anything about the people at the source. News has it that a laksa stall in Kuching has closed down as the couple have tested positive. The Good New Fellowship Church is right next door to that coffee shop, they say so the couple must be connected to that cluster.

    Other than that, the Food Panda delivery guys here do not look very clean in their faded t-shirts. The carrier at the back of their motorbikes sure needs thorough cleaning. One look and my appetite would be gone, that's for sure.

    Sigh!!! I wish all this would end soon so we can get on with our normal lives.

    1. from experience, the restaurants packed the food tightly, hard to tamper and the delivery is very fast, no time to tamper too.

    2. Arthur : I have ordered from Kyochon and MyBurgerlab even before the MCO and I trust their hygiene standards. I may have my doubts about other restaurants. So far I have no issues with the Grabfood riders and service has been satisfactory. I too wish for the MCO to be over. Staying at home too long even for someone who loves to stay at home can be too much!

    3. Mun : So far so good!

  3. I've been enjoying my iced coffees too (half in the morning, balance half in the afternoon and a second cup of hot coffee in the evening) ^.^ What's with the first photo of girl...she seems to be complaining about something. And yes, that's how parents feel after scolding their children....and they scoop them up and plant kisses on them! :D I've stepped on Cookie's tail before coz they're so quiet when they walk, you just don't know they're behind you. That's the reason I put a collar with a bell on him so that I'm alerted to where he is...no sneaking up on me.

    Ok, my cat consultancy is open for consultancy...hehehe! ;) By the way, cats don't do their business outside their litter box (and thanks for blotting out the 'graphic' sight). If they do, I read that it could be because of an underlying medical condition (if it happens frequently). Once in a while are 'accidents' and I don't think Ah Girl did it on purpose. What I think happened here is that Ah Girl may have been spooked by something (or a sound) and bolted out of her litter box before she could 'finish' her business (this has happened to Cookie before). The other reason would be that some of the poop got stuck in her anus and she couldn't defecate it out (you know, we humans face that problem too sometimes with hard faeces...sorry for being so graphic!), so she rubbed it on the floor in the hope of getting it out of her butt. I've seen Cookie do this before too...and that's the reason why my litter box is outside the house...in case of 'accidents' like these...haha! ;D

    1. Girl complained because I pointed my camera at her too often hee..hee.. She knows how to protest >.< Ever since having her, I get to experience the little nuances of parent-child relationship.

      Thank you for you consult hah..hah... I know I could google but I prefer to hear it first hand from a cat owner whom I know. So that explains it and this morning there was no repeat incident. It could be a case of being spooked because there were a few occasions when she left the litter box in a hurry and ran across the room. I am guessing a lizard or cockroach was in her box (?).

      By the way, do other cats kacau Cookie's litter box? When he is in the house and needs to use his toilet how? I am contemplating putting girl's litter box outside.

    2. I've answered these questions about the litter box before but I think you missed it (I went back to your blog posts and found it in Day #13). If you need peace of mind, find something to cover the litter box at night once your cat has done his business for the day. I don't know about other cats but mine doesn't poop in the house...he will poop only when I let him out of the house (they go jalan-jalan a few times a day anyway) and he follows a routine and usually poops or pees by 6pm every day (he poops only once a day and won't poop again at night). He does pee outside the house once a while (not in his litter box) but that's because he's male and he's marking his territory I think (probably when he feels threatened by other males in the area). You'd be surprised that cats can tahan their poop and pee very well. I suppose you have to train Girl into a routine. Good luck :)

    3. Oh sorry I missed it! I went back to that post to read and many thanks! No wonder in the past before I set up the litter box, my girl did not pee or poop inside the house. It happened only once she peed on her cushion in the cage when I woke up late on a Sunday. My girl poops twice a day (hah..hah..gah!), once in the morning and once in the evening.

    1. Now the Grabcar drivers also double up as food delivery because there is less demand for taxi service. I had my donuts and fried chicken delivered by car too.

      Delete
  13. I ordered Kyochon fried chicken too the other day because they having promotion under Grabfood, buy 2 get 1 free. It came in a set with rice + drink + pickle, but the portion was really small though :(
