Belated Thanksgiving, no senior moment


My good friend, Diana, shared a video with me and it is so hilarious (but true) that I have to share with you all, especially with friends that are around my age.

I had a good laugh watching the video and I believe you would too. Be patient with the first two minutes.After seeing the video this is what I wrote to my friend Diana.

“Good morning. What a hilarious video to wake up to and thanks for a good laugh. Jokes aside, there were so many things she mentioned that I have done before and I am only 57. Just a few days ago, I was clicking and clicking my car remote in front of a white car and wondering why I can't open the door. I said out loud to myself in a VERY irritating voice, "What's WRONG with this stupid remote?" Then I heard a man's voice behind me and said, "Aunty, I think you got the wrong car." Then I heard, "toot toot" and the car door was opened. I am sure you can imagine the rest of the story yourself. LOL! Oh Lord, where can I find a Home Instead Senior Care in Malaysia?”

Before I let you all go, I would like to share with you our Belated Thanksgiving Dinner with our good friends, John & Diana Ishii last Saturday. Oh, it is not that we forgot that the actual date for Thanksgiving was the Thursday before, no senior moment on this one. We had to defer our dinner two days due to the water service at our house being off for eight hours on Thanksgiving day. 

Quay Po had a tsunami in the kitchen before Quay Lo cooked up a tornado and the result was all these dishes we enjoyed and would like to share with you virtually.

It is a neccessity to have cranberry sauce to go with the roast turkey.

I will share with you in another post.

We had so much fun and laughter. Another fond memory for us to look back to in the years to come.  I give thanks for  whatever I have, and also what I have not, for we need the latter, so we will not take the former for granted. I also give thanks for having all of you riding along with me on my culinary adventures and all your tips, and help along the way. Stay tuned for my Quay Lo's recipes on roast turkey and the stuffing. If you make it for Christmas, you will surely WOW your guests.
