Book-Mas Tree In Straits Quay, Penang

How come we always drop by to Straits Quay, Penang?  I have lost count already, I thought we would give it a miss this time but since my sister and nephew have not been there before, we ended up there once again.  One thing for sure, we have not been there during Christmas before... so it is nice for a change too to see something new then...

At the entrance....
Pity the two boys... the sun was just too hot for them!
We ladies are smarter... we took a picture away from the sun...
And thus the "blurness" and not sharpness... LOL...

There was some kind of activity going on.. not sure what though...
Still at the entrance...
Yes, still at the entrance.. hahaha...
Here we are.... at the lobby...
We spent some minutes here... admiring the yachts in broad daylight...
Tracking down the owner... can you see him? :)
I think my nephew enjoyed himself tremendously...
Same with these three too....
In the midst of these books, I saw my favourite author... Sidney Sheldon!
Admiring the person who thought of this idea...  
Book-Mas Tree...
Not easy to pile them up like a Christmas tree... 
Great Idea!

  2. Wahhhh!!!! Your sons puteri lilin, scared of the sun kah? Muahahahahaha!!!! I guess the books are not for sale - imagine if someone wants one at the bottom of the pile, the whole tree would come tumbling down. Would be nicer if they can make a bigger one!

  6. So terror they make the Book-Mas tree. Something new & not easy. Thumbs Up to those who took the effort to do it. You look so small when sandwiched between your dons.

  11. Hello Claire,

    Have you eaten at the nyonya restaurant in Straits quay before?

    About the book tree, I wonder did they use some sort of adhesive to stick the books together.

    1. No, I haven't... is it good??? If it is, next time I wanna try...
      About the book tree, I dare not touch also... needs a lot of efforts to get it done like that.. I guess..

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...
