United In Reunion

There were 14 of us at the reunion dinner... this year, no parents-in-law, both of them passed away last year, nevertheless, a reunion still have to take place somehow. This year, 3 families joined up at the East Ocean Restaurant, for the first time, not cooking at home.

We felt the change... no elderly people this time and I could sense my sister-in-law shedding some tears during the dinner.. it was different somehow... anyway, at least all of us were there, regardless of the expensive food package....

loe sang.. a MUST...

the youngsters world now....

some of the dishes for this RM598 package...

curry prawns..

fried rice

mixed vegetables


steamed fish..

this... i m sure all of us know...

It was an expensive dinner..
during CNY, what to expect...
anyway, it is the reunion that counts... I guess....


  1. When you said your in-laws were coming, I assumed your mother and father in-law. I did not know they had passed on. So sorry to hear that!! But it does look like fun and the food looks wonderful!!! What are those puffy round white cake thingys in the last picture? Are they filled with something?

  2. No wonder no hassle. Reunion in restaurant. Here, all restaurants closed...can buy to take home but must collect around lunchtime - cold already, not nice anymore.

  3. Yes, RM598 is a bit costly but it is worth paying since all the three families can save the hassle of cooking... Happy New Year, Claire.

  4. Happy CNY to you and family!! : )

  5. Somewhow this year, I dun feel like dining in Chinese restaurants! I feel the food are boring and expensive! Rather go for Thai, Jap or Western! Haha!

  6. sorry claire, i had misunderstood abt your in laws on your previous posts. Anyhow, here wishing you and your family a very happy chinese new year and gong xi fa cai!!

  7. After the lohsung all will be sung sung mung mung..hehe ~;).

  8. Looking 兔tù-wards 兔tù-day 兔tù-morrow and 兔tù-getherness forever.
    兔tù-begin with good health & wealth
    Wishing You & family A Hopping, Happy & Prosperous Rabbit 兔tù Year
    恭喜发财 GongXiFaCai

  9. Ops....when I read your post,only that I know both of your in-laws have passed away. is worthy to spend for that delicious reunion dinner....once a year.

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
