Seafood Pot For CNY Reunion Dinner

Chinese New Year Eve is finally here! Woke up early to prepare dishes... correction... woke up early to go breakfast with my siblings. We went to the food stalls near Perak Stadium and it was like free food for everyone there. Ordering food that never came and queuing up for food like "beggars" as if the food was free.  Conclusion :  Never go for food when it comes to festive season...

Home cooked food is anytime better than queuing up for food and eating in a hurry.... better stay home and have a bowl of cereal with fresh milk... (my girl's breakfast this morning)

As for myself, I always volunteered to cook ONE dish.... hahahaa... My contribution for tonight's Reunion Dinner is all cooked... ready to be served....

My limited 101 Dish
Part of the ingredients... 
Sea cucumber, fish maw and one tin of abalone with sauce...
First "tumis" lots of chopped garlic, 
 then add in abalone skins, oysters and mushrooms....
Sauteed for some time... add in the sauce....
Then when everything is well mixed, I transferred them to a pot...
And allow it to stew for an hour...
Before adding in the abalones and sea cucumber...
And.. that is it....
Actually I wanted to do something like this.... 
But I guess this will have to wait for another year....

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
