Delightful Time In Taman Sutera Utama, Johor

Merry Merry Christmas!!!

Today I had a good time in JB.. met up with an old friend, Mr Bean and his daughter. We are old buddies from yesteryears and it is great to see them once again.

Thank you, Mr Bean for taking us out for lunch, thanks for your "abundant gifts" as well... I promise to make it up to you when you come Ipoh next year!

Here are some pictures of my tea-time in Sutera area....
at last I can have some delightful chinese desserts!
They may look familiar but their fillings are different from those in IPOH.. nice, nice!!
red beans with sweet potatoes...
black sesame with peanut paste
sweet beancurd with gingko seeds.. delightful for me!
rojak... Johor style
a bit of this and that... all to my taste!
Sorry, I didn't catch the name of the shop.. 
along this road....
just opposite a children's playground...

Sorry for not being able to "blop-hop" to your blogs.... going for a ten days trip is really exhausting and time consuming. Really no time to attend to my blog until late at night...but once I am back in Ipoh, I will make back for the lost time... hopefully!  :)

Happy Boxing Day in another 40 minutes from now!!

  11. Red bean with sweet potatoes, i love it. All the dessert is so yummy looking.

  12. it's only in johor that the rojak comes with yu char kueh. if fact, i like it when it's solely yu char kueh with the rojak sauce.

  13. Your rojak looks really enticing. I tried one yesterday just outside Pelangi shopping centre. Was just passing by when I spotted this interesting stall on the back of a bike. I liked it very much. Have you tried it?

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...
