Palm Sunday And A Mini Tyhoon In Ipoh

It's Palm Sunday today... went to church at 7.45am with bright spirits.. and each of us were given a beautiful cross made from palm leaf.....
Pastor preached on The Journey to the cross by Jesus as he entered the city of Jerusalem with shouts of Hosanna by the people who laid palm leaves on the ground as Jesus rode by on a donkey, the very same people who had him crucified a week later and then He rose on the third day, ie Easter....
 "He came from heaven to earth... to show the way...
From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay...
From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky...
Lord I lift Your name on High..."


On the very same afternoon around 4pm, a strong and howling wind came to my area.... Never before I heard of such howling wind before... "wwooooooooooowooooo" and rain splashed into my main entrance.... and in no time, my balcony was kind of flooded too...
Something must have got stuck cos the water just wouldn't budge....
and an idea came to this Lady MacGyver
Covered the head with a thick towel, she went into action....

Using the stick, she searched for the hole....
Seems like the hole was stuck with debris.... 
That was why the water couldn't go through....
That being done, she began to retrieve her floating slipper....

Got it!!
Finally..... done!
Ok, that's it!
No more clog.. no more flood.... 
The task is accomplished!
Time to get myself cleaned up before I get a chill....

  6. Really hope you will be ok, won't catch chill. You were totally soaked! Raincoat or umbrella will be better I guess, The towel you used was also totally soaked. Just curious who took the photos of you while you were in the rain?

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
