Nothing New


It's the end of the year already. So fast right? Time used to go by a lot more slowly when I was young. That's how I feel anyway.

Some of you may be making 2021 resolutions. For me, I have none. I just go with the flow. I could resolve to eat healthier, to make food prep my new norm or to spend more time in the garden. 

But nah. I already slacked on food prep and I have been eating out, two meals a day.


I'm still enjoying chap fan. It's delicious and cheap and I get variety although I tend to favour the same dishes that I love.


And then there's the foodcourt at the nearby mall. This was the pork don at Ramen X.


Then I tried the Bun Cha at Pho Real. Not bad.


Last Sunday, I was too lazy to cook. Besides, Grabfood is having the HOTDEALS 50% promo.

Something healthy.


And something not so healthy which my cat loves.


I haven't even opened the box when she came charging into the dining room.


I made sure to specify for drumsticks and thighs only and I got what I requested.


This is well balanced, no? Healthy and not healthy.

After polishing off her share (KFC not salad), my cat went to take a snooze on my bed.


Last Saturday, an hour or two after lunch, I felt peckish.


So I went to Yin's Sourdough Bakery & Cafe for some munchies.


The cinnamon rolls were a disappointment as they were stale, so hard. But the apple turnover was good though too buttery for my taste.


That evening my partner and I went to Mr Fish. The place was doing roaring business and that was the day the CMCO was extended to 20-12-2020.


I had the tom yam fish noodles. It was superb! And very spicy.


As usual, my partner had the Teochew fish porridge.


And we had the fuchuk fish paste to share.


The Starling is all decked up for Christmas.


With the pandemic I felt like Christmas would never come.


This is the Christmas deco at Aeon 1 Utama. Can Santa come visit?

  3. with the recent no limit in the car and interstate/interdistrict travel ban being lifted, I foresee people will jam up the shopping malls for the year end sales. Yea, eateries will have more business too...I feel like wanting to eat 'this and that'....(too many can't decide) and go to shopping malls to take pictures of the Xmas decors....mmmm…..that KFC looks finger licking good! Did Belle have some too?

    1. I noticed more people around like everything back to normal except for the masks and scanning. Hope that cases don't shoot up because of this.

  6. GFeel like 2020 is slow because of MCO, did not accomplish much. In blink of eyes it is already December!!!

    1. My chap fan is opposite of yours. My standard is 1 meat + 2 veges or if I am greedy, I will add on one more meat.

  7. Don't know what is about fried chicken and cats...Cookie loves fried chicken too (not KFC but a good one from a coffee shop). Hmmm, let me see, thai-style chilli fried tofu, sweet sour pork & sweet potato leaves stir-fry are your favourites (I see you're no longer wary of the cili api!). I think this year's Xmas decor will not be anything spectacular since shopping malls have been hit by the pandemic, they won't spend unnecessarily and just hope for a bit more sales come year end.

    1. I could not resist the cili api hah..hah... It's true, the deco at The Starling is very basic this year.

  8. I have eaten Bun Cha in Vietnam when i went there in 2019 and I like it. December, coming to the end of the year and I am sure everyone's wish would be hoping that the pandemic will be over and we can get back to our normal life very soon! Same here, I always order the same dishes when I go eat Chap Fan but I eat from a few chap fan stalls so there is still variety.

    1. I have a feeling that the pandemic will continue to follow us into 2021. This years Christmas and next years festive seasons won't be so festive anymore. Haiz...

    1. The pandemic makes us miss the things that we have taken for granted all these years! It is wise of you to be take precaution and not visit the malls. I only go out of necessity - groceries and makan. No more lepak2 and go into shops to browse like before. I really miss that.

  11. The year 2020 has been such a lockdown in time for me. However the worst was year 2018 for me, so I fret not so much in 2020.

    I think only Cinnabon sells the best cinnamon rolls in town.
