This & That Including What Ails

Local Hawker Fare

The above and below photos display of dishes are sold as per serving and accompanied by a plate of rice.

This is what we call “Malay” food.

Malay food is halal certificated and the Muslims can eat it. Such stalls are managed by Muslims and we Chinese love to eat by choosing a fish or meat and with veggies

There is also another cooked food stall but it is runned by Chinese.

Below are sample dishes cooked by the guy running this stall.

2 veggies choices and a meat or a fish plus a packet rice could pay $3.50 to $4 for a nice lunch😂


Learn To Position Self Carefully….

Or you ruin your perfect holiday memento!


Casual Friday

I can imagine my office colleagues arriving in their “Birthday Suits” in the buff as they say😉




Hard Truths


Guess What I Found?

My ‘ol friend’ Pink Panther is back! I used to have this fella before Garfield monopolised my life.

This same life size fella made me squeal as I walked past the shop when I saw him.

Lanky arms and legs, he is the opposite of Garfield…el fatso and a huggable inanimate fur ball!🤣

I also saw these cute lil Pink Panthers. Aren’t they adorable?

I did not buy either although I could love the key chain hanging on my bag.

I miss Inspector Clouseau series of Pink Panther movies. If I did not remember incorrectly, it was played by actor Peter Sellers.

3 Wishes

A Woman was out golfing one day when she hit the golf ball into the woods.

She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog in a trap.

The frog said to her, “If you release me from this trap, I will grant you three wishes.”

The woman freed the frog, and the frog said, “Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes.

Whatever you wish for, your husband will get times ten!”

The woman said, “That’s okay.”

For her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

The frog warned her, “You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis whom women will flock to”.

The woman replied, “That’s okay, because I will be the most beautiful woman and he will have eyes only for me.”

So, KAZAM-she’s the most beautiful woman in the world!

For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world.

The frog said, “That will make your husband the richest man in the world. And he will be ten times richer than you.”

The woman said, “That’s okay, because what’s mine is his and what’s his is mine.”

So, KAZAM-she’s the richest woman in the world!

The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered, “I’d like a mild heart attack.”

Moral of the story: Women are clever. Don’t mess with them.

Attention female readers: This is the end of the joke for you. Stop here and continue feeling good.

Male readers: Please scroll down.

The man had a heart attack ten times milder than his wife. 😂

Moral of the story: Women think they’re really smart.

Let them continue to think that way and just enjoy the show.

Note: If you are a woman and are still reading this; it only goes to show that women just never listen ! 😂😂😂

Theory On How To Make Women Happy


Pettier Than Thou…

Eunuch and Sonny Boy is off to the land of ancient secrets, also known as the land of miracles and land of the dragon for 2 days.
Eunuch is excited to travel and I could tell from his eyes on how eager he was to get on the whirly bird with Sonny Boy. He was literally clicking his heel as he jumped up and down.
Sonny Boy, the endowed one with hierarchical roots of ownership of Monkey Lord’s kingdom has deep pockets and I suppose both will have some R & R in a country where the ladies are beautiful and food is interesting.
I laughed in my heart when Eunuch told me going after this trip to the Land of Chinese for another a few days to meet “Chinese government officials” – it is actually a trade mission type thing and honestly, I know it was his way of just wanting to travel and see things.
I am odd in the sense that I do not relish travelling for work as it means for me, literally travelling for work. I do not have side agendas, no sightseeing, no “r & r” as usually for my area of work, there is usually a lot of stuff which is why it warrants the need for me to travel.
Plus, to put my inanimate furball, Garfield in a luggage bag makes me sad as he is cooped up in his personal luggage bag without light nor oxygen LOL! Now I am really sounding like an odd ball especially to first time readers.
Rest assured, I am not bonkers…at least not yet…in the future, I cannot tell as the mind is a fragile organ really and if my brain ever decides to take a break or any break, then I am in deep trouble.
For the sake of my well being, my lil pigeon brain must work. It can relax a little at times, but boy oh boy, it must work.
Last evening for dinner, Sis took us out for Thai food. This is the second time that she is paying for dinner and I knew it was mum’s ploy to deliberately make her pay. Reason being, she is terribly stingy and so, we needed to make her sing for her days as daughter or paying forward before she en-cashes her inheritance when our 2 old folks pass on. Harsh realities of life and trust me, my mum’s faculties are sharp as a whistle and I agree with her.
Over dinner, I ordered small portion of pork trotters, curry chicken, 2 fried plates of veggies, noodles and 5 sticks of moo satay.
Sis was of course angry and kept saying why we ordered so much. She implied that if we ate on our own, I would be too “stingy” to order so much. I was annoyed as I do order a lot for mum and dad when I am with them as I know mum and dad loves variety.
Sad part was that neither of my folks backed me to retort her and so, I sat like a whimpering puppy with tails in between my legs as I became the fall guy of a ploy to “charge sis” and order more than we could eat!
Gee if I could write a saga of my life, I think it could interest some folks and perhaps some may buy my book to laugh or point finger at. On the other hand, others may turn up their noses and say..petty differences.
I do agree it sounds petty.
But what do I do when I have petty siblings.
It becomes a case of pettier than thou!
Guilty as charged then – it this was the case.
