So fast ya...today is already the last day of 2020. To me it felt like 2020 just came and is almost gone.
Like all years, for me it has been a mix of ups and downs. Overall, I won't say that 2020 was a bad year for me. I mean of course it is bad in the sense that we are still in the midst of a pandemic that does not seem to be over anytime soon.
I count my blessings for still being healthy (touch wood!) and still keeping my job when there are many who have lost theirs or had to settle for deep pay cuts.
Let us all hope and pray that 2021 will bring good tidings and hopefully it would be the year that we see the last or at least the coming of the end of the pandemic.
So were there any highlights or significant happenings in my 2020? Well, I adopted another cat.
Belle is still with me although she has become wary of me due to her "bad" experience of having me apply ear drops that she finds unpleasant.
I am not able to cuddle her as she associates that with having her ears invaded. So I just leave her be.
Just last week I started cooking simple dinners for myself like how I used to do many years ago. It is so easy and yet so tasty and satisfying. I just steam vegetables, chicken and tofu.
Just a few days ago it was this pumpkin soup. It was made with soup and pumpkin which I had frozen a while back. It turned out so good.
My partner brought back a packet of tang yuan for me to enjoy. He said it was from a famous stall in Penang. I haven't had this for ages! It sure brought back childhood memories.
Of course she could not let me eat my banana in peace too.
Eh, what happened to my new year's eve dinner?
There you go. Fajitas Trio from Chili's via Grabfood. I never go out to eat on new year's eve because it would be too crowded. Never mind the pandemic, people have been coming out again and 1 Utama is not quiet anymore.
I should have know better not to order this (but I was craving) because it did not taste so good. At the restaurant, this is served on a sizzling cast iron plate and you get all the smoky charred goodness on the meat and veggies.
A Paradise Pie. I think this is a non-bake dessert served with caramel sauce, chocolate fudge, chopped nuts and vanilla ice cream (which obviously melted by the time it reached me. I put it in the freezer for a little while).
I transferred the dessert to a plate.
Very nice! Sweet but not overwhelmingly sweet. It more than made up for the disappointing main meal.
These were past good eats at Chili's that happened within the last few weeks.
In less three hours, we shall usher in 2021 with(out) a bang (hopefully, thanks to the pandemic I hope there are no noisy fireworks because I am going to bed soon).
With that I shall wish all of you a Hopeful and Happy New Year!
