Two more days to lockdown and yesterday I was very worried that Aeon at 1 Utama would be crowded today. I was so worried that my partner and I left the house at 9:30 am even though 1 Utama is just a stone's throw away from us.
We were pleasantly surprised that the supermarket was already opened and there were not many shoppers inside. Shopping was a breeze and I ticked off items from my grocery list although there were a few that were not available.
As 10:00 am approached more people started coming in and by then we were almost done. The checkout counters were clear and we got out of there quickly. I guess all the mad shoppers had already shopped till they dropped the day before leaving us with much peace hah..hah...
My garden was so neat and nice during MCO 1.0 last year. Everyday I happily spent the mornings pulling weeds and rearranging flower pots.
I am looking forwards to another round of gardening come 01-06-2021. Imagine two weeks of blissful gardening, I can't wait.
I have been eating pretty much kimchi jigae for the past few days. I am not tired of it, but I know you are hah...hah....
I hear someone say "For heaven's sake woman! Cook something else for a change!". I say to you "What for?" Hah!
The nice thing about these Korean stone pots is that the hot soup continues to bubble even after you remove it from the stove.
I leave the pot to stand for about 20 minutes or so because I find it very difficult to drink soup that is boiling hot. My late grandma told me that her father (who came from China) was very particular about soup.
Soup must be served boiling hot from the kitchen. Even if you missed by a minute, he can tell by sipping the soup and would insist on sending it back to the kitchen to be reheated.
