Antalya: A Brief Resort Guide

The Turkish Riviera is a piece of turquoise coast that can be found in the southwest of the country, providing visitors with exceptional climes, incredible beaches and crystal clear seas. Located in the area, holidays in Antalya are perfect for anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of some of the more vibrant resorts, giving visitors a more relaxing environment in which to spend their summer sojourn. 

Antalya is heaving with shimmering beaches and delectable eateries that can keep you occupied during your stay, but its appeal doesn’t stop there. History and heritage is rife in the area, with plenty of sites to visit should you wish to spend your time exploring as well as unwinding.

Of course, the resort in which you decide to base yourself for the duration of your stay is an important choice and with various resorts on offer within the Antalya province, you have quite the decision to make. Here’s a brief outline of some of the popular resorts in the area and why they would be a perfect base for your visit. 

Lara Beach would be the ideal spot for sunworshippers. From the azure waters to the glistening beaches, if you’re hoping to do very little during your Turkish retreat, this would be the place for you. If your plans are to top up your tan, watch the world go by and recharge your batteries, you’ll be in the right place here. 

Side is a quaint fishing village that attracts travellers from all walks of life. Whether you want to spend your days on the beautiful coast, stroll around the cobbled streets of the resort or explore the bounty of museums and ruins in the area, there’s something available for you. 

Colakli offers the ultimate in tranquillity. If you plan on playing on the beach with your kids during your stay, Colakli is the perfect resort for you, while a trip to the Manavgat Caves would make an excellent itinerary filler if you can tear yourself away from the golden sands.

Whatever resort suits your personal tastes, an Antalya holiday would be a great way to while away a week or two this summer. Take a look online for some great value vacations this summer.

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...
