Cass, mil and I had breakfast at our favorite open air kopitiam today. It’s Cass’ first time eating here during the RMCO, her first in 4 months. Of all the cafes and restaurants that her gourmand daddy often brings us to, this humble kopitiam is still her favorite.
Because of friendly Uncle Weng’s fish paste noodles, which is her favorite. She used to be hooked to this bitter gourd minced pork noodles sold at a neighborhood kopitiam but the seller had moved away years ago. And she’s since shifted her favorite to Uncle Weng’s fish paste noodles! Moreover this girl just hates to dress up fancy-schmancy just to go out for a meal at a fancy restaurant. She prefers going out in her pajamas (almost!) at a casual open-air eatery to have a quick bite and go home 😁
This brat always singles out all the fried shallots in her noodles and dump them to me 🙄
My fried meehoon with ‘liu’ from the mil’s curry noodles. The amount you see on the plate is just a quarter; the other three quarter portion is in a tiffin carrier, for whoever who’d like to eat it for lunch later. I think I have a stomach with an XS capacity as I can’t eat much in a meal, thus my size and 42.7 kg weight 😄
MIL made bubur cha cha with 3 types of sweet potatoes, yam, mixed beans, aromatic palm sugar (from blocks) and freshly squeezed coconut milk for tea time dessert.
And our simple dinner of steamed cod fish, stir-fried celery, long beans and ‘fu pei’ and steamed minced pork with preserved mustard green for the 5 of us. Hubs was at a client’s wedding event – his first outdoor catering for a wedding during the RMCO 🙏
Alycia was finally in the mood to complete the 800 pieces jigsaw puzzle that her granny gifted her last Christmas. Despite a 4-month home quarantine during the MCO, she didn’t have the mood for puzzles. The girls seemed to be discombobulated throughout the time they were stuck at home and had no mood for anything besides seeking comfort from their gadgets. Being able to go back to school seemed to make them happier as their lives returned to normalcy.
My happy food and ultimate kryptonite – kuih 😛
PS: It took me 4 days to complete this short post as there’s been too much going on the past few days – too much distraction, feeling down and having too much to do with too little help. I’m feeling better today 🥰
