It's MCO again. Honestly, it does not feel any different anymore. Our new normal has become our normal, normal. With MCO implemented (yet) again, there is no more dine-ins, no crossing district and state borders.
It's just as well that I live and work in the same district and I have just begun my low carb diet which means that I have to prepare my own lunch. I still go to work as usual, put on my mask as usual and I make a conscious to physical distance from people when I am out in public places.
Let me show you my last dine-in, which was horrible.
I won't say the name of the place but it was here. The kerisik/sambal tumis had a rancid taste and the flesh of the fried chicken was terribly soft, as if it was boiled for a long time and the deep fried.
Actually by that time, I was already tired of eating out. During MCO 1.0, I was like yahoo! yabadabadoo! Grab-fooding almost everyday eating nasi lemak, wanton mee, and lots of donuts.
Yesterday I cooked something healthy.
Some sort of mixed fried vegetables with prawns. There are Brussels sprouts, asparagus, carrots and mushrooms in the stir fry. With benefit of hindsight, the Brussels sprouts would be better sliced, segmented or with leaves separated.
The amount I cooked was enough for two meals. It was a very nice change to eat loads of veggies and prawns (which I hardly ever eat). I hope I can lose some fat hah..hah....
I want to eat more of such stir frys which is so easy to cook with many variations of vegetables and proteins.
I was very tempted to interfere just like what every protective parent would do for their favorite child. But I stopped myself.
