Some Last Minute Shots Of Penang

Thank you for teaching me a new word... Mural Paintings.. now only I know they are called as such... hahahaa...Well, I hope the mural paintings will continue to be an attraction for tourists and will not be vandalized in any way...

Before we left for Penang, I took a few shots of the town....

Time to bade goodbye to Penang....
Dropped Andy back to the hotel where his car was parked...
And started "two hours journey" back to Ipoh....
Though Penang is only two hours away from Ipoh, this is only the second time of the year that we went there.  Hope to make another one more trip before the year ends..... Love driving to Penang cos I know that I will never get lost in Penang Island!  LOL....


  1. so good, just two hours drive.. can take us 5 hours to reach there, and when think about the journey, already gave up before stepping foot there, haha!! :D

  2. Huh Penang town like that only merely two streets kah, better not to go so boring one hahaha

  3. Do drop by Penang more often and we can meet up too! I will bring you to some awesome eateries, hiak hiak hiak

  4. Ya, 2 hours drive still boleh go more often.

  5. This little yellow tree and Charlie Brown are on the front of a restaurant? So colorful and cute, I would go in to eat!

  6. Soooo near and the highways there sooooo good! Not like between here and Selangau...but I would drive over to take Melissa home for the weekend and send her there again after that. 3 hours, at least - return. Sigh!!!!

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....

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

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
