May I Introduce....

When I was in Penang yesterday, I received a sms from Cynthia, telling me that her dragon fruit mooncakes that I ordered, were on their way to IPOH and would reached around noon...... cham..cham... I was thinking, how ah... then suddenly I thought of my good fren, Tammy.. she was the one I rely on when my dragon fruit mooncakes was being delivered, told her to meet Cynthia's brother in Poi Nam School, near to her working place, fortunately.

Thanks Cynthia for the special delivery, thanks to Tammy for receiving them on behalf.... (here, I bagi u 1 kotak, courtesy from yours truly)

For those who wants to order mooncakes for the coming festival, just tune in to her blog at Me, Me, Me!! She will attend to your orders personally....

Another blogger I would like to "expose" to you all, is none other than Merryn...she is also very talented... for those of you who have kids and not-so-creative like me, then go to her blog.... she has lots of tips for u to keep your kids busy..(well, at least for an hour or two, i guess)

She has this talent for art and craft, handiwork, origami etc etc... all that I don't have...hahaa.. creativity, patience, all these comes together. So if you like to know more about crafty work, do hop over to her blog... u won't regret it! I don't want to say so much, it might spoil the "broth" ... lol...

Well, that is for this Friday... Have a great weekend, everyone!

  11. First of all,i never get to be the first commentor in your blog, clair, and that really makes me sad sampai i lost my appetite eating moon cakes liao.

    second of all,just want to tell you i have finally met up with STP in Penang,thougt it was a brief one but i promised to buy him and his dauther a lunch before he flies out of Penang.

    Thirdly, i didnt take my wife to secret recipes for she already knew what she had to know ,hahahah.

    Fifthly,you must drink a lot of water instead of eating blog, drinking blog,,,,.ok.

  12. Mommyangel, u all young mummys sure know how to cook very well.. when my kids were young, i was working full day, so i rely on my maid to cook and sometimes catered too :(

    Scarlet, yes, u must try mooncake with coffee.. IPOH is famous for its white coffee..u will love it!

    Amy, nowadays mooncakes are expensive over here, one can fetch RM10... which is a bit too expensive for me...hahhaa..

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
