Some Ipoh Famous Snacks

Festive season or not, I still need to queue up when it comes to buying these snacks in Ming Yue confectionery.  Mooncake season is over and long gone and I thought there would not be a queue but I was wrong.  I think this shop is IN business...

Now I am "smarter".. before I go, I will call them to ask whether the "Groundnut Sweets" (direct translation-Far Sun Tong)  are available or not... otherwise the half hour drive to this place will be worthless... But one has to be patient when ringing them up... sometimes the calls will go unanswered... 

Since we have the "urge" of eating these snacks, we took the trouble to come by here and waited... and waited.... for our turn....
 When we reached the front line, what we wanted were sold out...
We had to wait for another "batch" to come out...
 While waiting for our favourite, we bought these first...
Kaya puffs at 60 sen each... fresh from the oven!
The next batch has arrived..
These are groundnut sweets that is worth waiting for...
Hot and Crunchy!
Supergirl packing for my orders....
Half kilo cost RM11.50 
And after all the wait, I ended up buying more than I really wanted to... 
That is a very bad habit of mine...
And so ... there it is.... tempting me at every hour...
 I think I know why there are always queues for these...
Firstly, they are very fresh and crunchy..
Secondly, they are not sugary sweet...
Thirdly, they have a saltish taste...
In summary... one can get addicted to it easily!

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

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
