Last Friday when I visited dad at the ICU, he had caught a cold. He had runny nose, sore throat and a slight cough.
The nurse came in shortly to give him his medication and after staying for about 25 minutes, I left. I told dad to rest and to sleep as much as he can so that he can recover.
Then that evening, we got news from my brother (YB #1, he was at the hospital) that dad had Covid. Oh dear dear. I had visited mum earlier that day (after the hospital) and informed YB #2 to do a Covid test on mum. He did so (including himself) the following morning (and so did I) and we all tested negative. As of today, still negative, phew!
So there will be no visitation (dad is in a normal ward now) until dad is free of Covid. Saturday, I visited mum as usual and brought food for her. After our chit chat I left for lunch.
I went to the kway chap place in Damansara Uptown and ordered just the meat side dishes.
Pork head, pork ears and pork belly (pork belly not in the photo, can see it here). I was served a complimentary fried dumpling that was rather delicious.
After that I went to The Starling to claim my complimentary wrap from Rollti. I chose the Chicken Sate Puas.
Inside were shredded cabbage, sliced cucumbers, sliced onions, grilled chicken (breast) and sate sauce topped with crushed peanuts.
This is my second time eating the Chicken Sate Puas and I am very puas (satisfied) with the wrap because the sate sauce is legit and very good. However I tak puas because there was not enough sauce.
After my (free) second lunch (hah...hah....) I went for my mall walk. It is good to walk after eating carbs.
I passed by Fish with You and that day they received loads of congratulatory flower stands.
They are doing brisk business with many people coming to savor their China specialty fish soup with preserved vegetables.
I am becoming curious about their fish soup. It is ketovore friendly since carbs (rice/noodles) are an optional item. Don't know lah, maybe one fine day I might be brave enough to come eat the spicy fish soup.
But prices here are way above my paksa rela imposed budget, so I might not come anytime soon. Let other people try first and let me know whether it is worth it or not.
When I went home that evening, this was my dinner. Minced beef omelette. Then I went to bed early because I was not feeling well (I thought I kena Covid but tested negative the next morning).
Sunday morning I went to Aeon as usual with my partner. When I got home, I proceeded with my project - Borscht Soup!
It's a simple soup, really. Just brown the beef, saute the vegetables and chuck everything (including tomato puree) into a pot and pour in some chicken stock (or water), season and simmer away.
End result, 6 containers of soup. I did not eat the soup immediately but prefer to store in the fridge first for flavors to develop. According to Daddy Lau of Made with Lau, restaurants serve this soup two days after cooking.
I also finished up a two week old beef soup. Usually I keep soups max only one week. But these days, I cannot afford to waste anything.
So I steamed up this soup and it still tasted very good. Hope don't lau sai (well, this morning all was well hee..hee...).
Last night's dinner was air fried beef trimmings.
