Saturday Half-Day Episode

It's nearly 3pm now..time passes so fast when its an off day...this morning, got up early...and what else to think of but food...? I guess its in my genes...food is always in my "hard disk" (brain) each morning...

Since today my 2nd precious was around too, both of us went out for breakfast, both of us only.... its a history event, according to him...is it really? I really cannot recall... Anyway, we went to Hor Lok coffeeshop where they sell varieties of food, eastern and western plus some dim sum too....

(RM4.00 rice) (RM4.50 mee)

After our brunch, we went home and upon reaching, mum called me to take her to visit Sam Sook (3rd uncle)..Its been nearly a week since I last saw him.. so 3 of us went, taking along mum's speciality ie. barley, gingko and foo chook tong sui (syrup)... Delicious...

Sam Sook looks healthier nowadays though he said he lost nearly 10 kg..I think its 10 lbs.. maybe he has mistaken..he looks fine to me and this time he related the whole episode of his biospy done on him at the initial stage...I wont relate it here...it is not a happy but a painful episode.. to all those who have undergone this, you are great people...in a sense that you really have the strength and determination to fight whatever impurities in the body...Salute to you all...

After spending an hour or so there, we went home ... heavy dark clouds were looming over us.... Again and again, after visiting someone less heathier than me, I have this gratitude feeling, a thought of thankfulness to our Almighty... Though we cant avoid getting old and sick one day, while we still can, we should treasure our time doing meaningful things we love doing...Life is indeed very precious and it can be very fragile too.....

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
