Our City Edge On Elizabeth Apartment In Melbourne

Many of my friends asked me where we stayed during our eight days trip in Melbourne.   Before coming over, I've asked a blogger friend about the accommodation and which one she would recommend and she was so kind enough to find out for me.  Her recommendation was City Edge at A'Beckett Street and without much ado, we just booked it online...

The City Edge is just on the right.... directly opposite the Book Sale sign....
There is one queen size bed....
and another sofa-bed at the living hall...
The pantry is just two steps away from the sofa bed.... LOL....
The corridor where we put our luggage....
Initially we were given this apartment but the air conditioner was not working very well...
The heat outside was really terrible and we went down to the reception to request for another room...
The lady-in-charge was very friendly actually, 
she took the trouble to let me see another two more rooms 
before we finally settled for the third one.....
At least the room was not facing the evening sun as the other two rooms....
And this room was a bit larger than the other two..... 
We could chuck our big luggage inside here...
So... this has become one room apartment during our 7 nights stay here in Melbourne...
We can do our cooking... (dish washer provided)
We can do our own laundry (washing machine and dryer too)
Ironing..... stand fan... heater... hair dryer...
4 sets of plates, cups, glasses, bowls, pans, pots...
What else did I miss?
Oh, the rates..... 
For our 7 nights, it cost around $1100.00
I think the rates vary depending on peak and non peak season...
So that is about it....
Happy Staying!!

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...
