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.
Have you ever peeled eggs and the shell (or rather the membrane under the shell) sticks to the egg? I know that you are supposed to immerse the eggs in ice water after cooking to allow the egg to contract and therefore pull away from the membrane.
But I don't have time for that early in the morning.
This was my lunch at the office today.
I felt very tired after a long day but managed to go to Jaya Grocer to pick up some supplies.
It was quite hard to maintain social distancing as I noted people just don't bother. They will come near you when you are picking stuff from the shelf instead of waiting a little bit for their turn. I'll say our fellow Malaysians lack self-discipline.
Anyway, let's see what I bought.
Shao Hsing Hua Tiao cooking wine and Narcissus Rice Vinegar. I want to make pickled green chilies but could not get green chilies. Haiz...
I re-stocked my peanut butter. This is my favorite brand because it is so delicious.
I was running out of baking paper and my usual brand, Glad, was not available.
I needed more eggs for baking and had to settle for this variant of the Nutriplus brand. I also picked up a tray of duck eggs. I love duck eggs!
I bought this Mission wraps because I want to make my own burrito.
My eyes were naughty and I bought Oreo cookies. When I am in the munchie mood, I can finish the whole box in one sitting. Bad.
Today my cat did not want to eat kibble (in the evening). I gave her kibble instead of tuna after the episode the other day. She was fine with kibble for lunch and dinner yesterday. But this evening she was all whiny and meowy. So irritating.
My dinner this evening. A simple soup. The eggs were so nicely peeled hah..hah...
She came to kacau me.
She even nibbled at my tee shirt.
Then I sort of figured that she wanted to eat something else. So when I served her Whiskas tuna, she went for it. Gobble..gobble..gobble... I took away the kibble. So picky!
Then as usual she wanted to go out. Made so much noise.
I was quite tired mentally and all this whining was driving me up the wall. I was like a tired working mother coming home to a troublesome kid.
She even tried clawing at the door.
I cannot tahan, so I left her and came upstairs to write this post hah..hah...
I'm not working tomorrow, so I can spend a bit of time blog hopping and replying to comments. Here's hoping for a lovely day tomorrow lepak-lepak at home!
You are really funny with the eggs. You should have carried them to office and peeled them later by knocking it off. 😂😂ReplyDelete
I think I must slowly eat peanut butter again. I vomited them out when I was in kindergarten and never ate them ever since. I love peanuts and butter! So why cannot combine in my mouth?? I love peanuts dessert too which is quite similar 😋😋
I think you really need a cat door to give yourself a peaceful mind. Don't worry about intruders as you can lock it when your Fei Mau needs to sleep.
What happened with you and the peanut butter in kindergarten? You did not like the taste? Try one teaspoon of Pic's peanut butter. Guarantee you will be hooked. But this peanut butter is natural, so the oil separates. You must stir first before taking. A bit expensive but worth it.Delete
I think sometimes very fresh eggs will stick like that and nothing will make it better. Yes I agree that people here don't bother to keep their distance in a supermarket so I am still not going to supermarkets and malls yet until June. Just an arbitrary date set.ReplyDelete
You are right about fresh eggs. Best to go during off peaks hours or else there is no way you can avoid these inconsiderate people.Delete
Ah, my post on Sunday is titled Rice Vinegar because I bought the exact bottle as you did because my family want to pickle homegrown very spicy Habanero chilies. since you love very spicy chilies, you could plant habanero instead of Jalapeno because habanero is very much hotter than jalapeno.ReplyDelete
Although I like hot chilies, I probably cannot tahan Habnero!Delete
I've never tried peeling eggs when they're hot coz I just can't, it'll burn my fingers. I dunk them in water (not ice water) to cool them down first. Never knew it would turn out like that if peeled immediately. So, is this your 'contribution' to "masak apa tak jadi hari ini"...not caramel pudding or curry puff...but hard-boiled eggs? Wahahahahaha! :DReplyDelete
I dunk the eggs in water too but as I was peeling, although the shell appeared to have separated from the egg, somehow a vacuum formed and the shell stuck firmly again. So frustrating! I should have posted the violated eggs in the "masak apa tak jadi hari ini" FB. hah..hah...Delete
Thanks for writing about Girl Girl. So adorable la, she eating your tee shirt to let you know she wants to eat her whiskas tuna. Her face is so expressive! Thanks!ReplyDelete
You are welcome! She is a joy and a pain. LOL!Delete
I have eaten this peanut butter but the chunky version. They are tasty!ReplyDelete
They only had the smooth one or else I would have gotten another bottle of the chunky.Delete
"It was quite hard to maintain social distancing as I noted people just don't bother. They will come near you when you are picking stuff from the shelf instead of waiting a little bit for their turn. I'll say our fellow Malaysians lack self-discipline." EXACTLY!!! That is why I avoid the one in town that sells all the nice imported stuff. Not very big, small alleys...and customers behaving like that. So pissed off!ReplyDelete
I've tried that peanut butter before. Nice too. Gee! My post today on peanut butter too. Must be International Peanut Butter Day. Lol!!!
They say eggs are like that if too fresh, dunno how true.
It is true - fresh eggs are hard to peel. Haiz...Delete
Same scenario here in sg, people cannot be bothered and walked so close to you. So i just "siam" (hokkien).ReplyDelete
I will feel happy if the eggs i peeled turn out to be perfect and shiny. For those not up to standard, i will just gobble them up and eat them on the spot. No wonder the more i peel, the lesser eggs i get, lolx!
Hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.
I am off work tomorrow too. So can have some time bloghopping too.
I am having a wonderful day today hee..hee..Delete
My attempts at peeling hard boiled eggs comes out ugly too. So I try not to get upset over minor things. The shops I go to are so small and cramp that we are practically rubbing shoulders. How to social isolate? Hide in the house haa haa.ReplyDelete
As I was researching on the virus rabbit hole I came across interesting stuff. Germ theory vs terrain theory etc. Sorry, I don't mean to bore you.
I like to ask questions and think for myself. I don't agree with everything people say but I respect their opinions and their right to say it. "Everything we hear is an opinion not a fact, everything we see is a perspective not the truth"- unknown.
Hi eli. Sorry that your comment went into my spam folder and I only realized that today! You are right not to get upset over small maters. Me too, I respect other people's opinion and sometimes we just have to agree to disagree.Delete
yes to 'CAT DOOR'! kesian ah girl cannot go out for a walk after meal...she must have missed her friends out there. U ate 4 biji telur in a day? I must eat rice/noodles with the soup, coz soup itself is not enuff for my dinner...lolx!ReplyDelete
Yes, 4 biji but not like that everyday lah...Delete
Sometimes it happens to me too, ugly peeled eggs. Lately, I am in snacking mood. Been thinking about it and hopefully not putting thoughts into action. Wah! Your Girl can be very choosy and picky over her food. After food, could it be that she wants to go out to do her business? Does she pee and poo in the house?ReplyDelete
Me too, having itchy mouth syndrome! LOL! My Girl has a litter box in the house where she does her business.Delete
Oh, I also never soak my eyes... no wonder cannot get smooth smooth ones! Yesterday I went to Tesco, a lot of Glad brand there but I just took the baking paper one...ReplyDelete
You mean your eggs, hah..hah... I like the Glad brand baking paper. I think it is the best.Delete
Yumurta soyarken bende de aynı durum oluyor.ReplyDelete
Sadece ben olmadığımı görüyorum!Delete
I always experienced the ugly peeled egg especially when I cook the egg in my air fryer. Sometime I'll angry like you but most of the time I just let it be, as long as it's edible, LOLReplyDelete
For the social distancing in supermarket, instead of ppl keep distance from me, I'll try to avoid ppl whenever ppl come near me, LOL
LOL! I also like you, I am the one avoiding people.Delete
