A New Semester Begins...

My girl is going to her new hostel soon, each year the students are allocated to a new block and the more senior they are, they are given better choice of rooms.  I remember during her foundation year, the room was kind of dreary, cemented floor and bricks on walls.  Then after her foundation, she was given a better room in another block and she decorated her room with these cheery cartoons on the wall.  It brightens up the room giving it a welcoming back look, she feels more at home than in college after pasting up these on her wall.
 This side of the wall was pasted with Spongebob by the former tenant...
And she added her favourite Disney cartoon on her side... 
Each time she wakes up, this cheery character more or less brightens up her day...

And now she has to give up this room for her juniors.  She is going to register for a new room next week and she told me that she will be getting some cartoon posters again for the dreary walls.  I know what she is going to choose again this time, she is very faithful to her Winnie!
I like these posters on my wall... 
My girl will also love these vinyl wall art...
Each day is brightened up with trees and flowers ..
and it looks like spring for the 365 days!  LOL... 
For her room, I think this one is cute too 
Perhaps I shall get these vinyl wall stickers for her... 
 She loves anything that is cure and sweet!
Well, as long as she feels comfortable in her room... 
I do not mind getting her any posters and stickers...
After all, she is the one going to stay and study there for the next few years....

  2. Nice. Not like my daughter's place in Sg Petani - they destroy everything before leaving, all torn, damaged...and to think those people would go out into society as...teachers!!! So disgraceful! The admin there are absolutely useless. Should do like khidmat negara - check, repair or pay for any damage before allowed to leave.

    1. Yes, if the paint is nice and not in patches... some are left overs from previous years leaving dirty marks on the walls... so covering them with vinyl stickers are fine.. they can easily come out without leaving papers on the walls..

  7. Hmm ... Some decors are good but get her to exercise frequently to release stress. That will help her sleep better.

  11. I have something like that cute pink tree and owls-on-the-trees wallpaper at home, which I bought from Groupon about half a year ago.. I bought three actually: birds chirping on a tree branch, trees with stars and leaves with bird cage.. At one time, very "hing" birds and trees and bird cages, hor? Hehehehe..

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...
