A New Blogger Around The Block

It was raining very heavily around 4pm when I received a twitter message from one of new found blogger who is from IPOH too. Just got to know her for a week or two, she twitted saying that she has baked some peanut butter chocolate cookies and wanted to give me some to try.... How kind of her!! Isn't that a nice surprise on a dreary and wet Thursday?

After some sms-ing and few calls, we decided to meet Maybank Ipoh Garden. When I reached there, I called her and asked her where she was, then I saw a lady holding the hp walking pass my car....I called out "Agnes!" She turned around...hahaa... so I was not wrong... If she didn't turn around.....hmmm... then.....

After exchanging our gifts with each other and a brief chat, we left our separate ways...hahhaa.. maybe one day we will meet up again and hope some other bloggers will join us as well...

her gift to me...

special homemade cookies... hmmmm....

my son exclaimed "WAH! A giant Cookie!"
and started walloping it....

Thank You, Agnes!


  1. Haha! You're welcome again. Hope you all don't mind about the size. My Maine did not allow me to spend precious time moulding the cookies. So I had to just bake huge ones as per the recipe to save time.

  2. Agnes: next time after baking, call me again... i not hak hei one.....hahaa....

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...
