Night Of Speech, Acting and Singing

The Trainers wanted two MC-s (Master of Ceremony) for the night function, one male and female.  They draw lots.... and out of 40 over participants, I got Picked!!  Oh gosh!  How come I never get prizes during Lucky Draws but when it comes to MC, I got it??   I tried to wiggle my way out of it by "negotiating" with the trainers but to no avail... LOL....

Leaving with no choice, I skipped a program and hid myself in the hotel room
and did all the essay writing for the night's programs... in Malay language... 
I was practically "blank" and wanted to call up my girl to give me some tips.. LOL..
But thanks to my iPad, I managed to find some "Kata-kata aluan...."
There was no printer and I had to write word by word... 
That shows how "efficient" my malay language is... LOL... 
Then the night began...  Dinner first...
 My roommate kept smiling away... no tension ma....
 While mine is just this!  No appetite at all...
"Nerves"
Then the Night began...
I wonder who took this picture!
Just look at my mouth... hahahaaa....
My group had to do a short sketch..... Hari Raya Home Coming...
By then I was "warm-up" already... and I rendered a song... *hehehee* 

The night has just begun..  my appetite came back...
And I Nearly did a duet with my colleague!
Too bad I don't know how to sing a Duet Malay song...
Anyway, we had fun that night...
 Let our "hair" down,  so...  the saying goes...

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
