A Non-Oomph Feel Tonight

Nothing special to write about... the"oomph" is not here tonight.... lots of things on my mind... but I try to "divert" myself from those issues... Ranting out in my own blog sounds like a good idea, however.... some are too personal to disclose... To overcome this problem, I must open up a new blog with a new identity and then whatever XXXX can be blast out.... one fine day I might do that... 

Meanwhile bear with me... being a Food-holic, these were taken today, Tuesday 24th June.....
Chee Cheong Fun in Thean Chun Old Town... 
RM3.20 for the above.... 
Some fish balls must go with the CCF then only "shiok"
Another RM2.80 for the 4 pieces...
And as if they are not enough, I ordered my dessert to make the meal complete...
RM2.50 or so... cannot remember the price for this.. haiyah...
*  yan loe chor... *
 
Now... adding them up, my meal cost around RM8-9...
If I just order a plate of CCF and a glass of plain water, it would be less than RM4...
And for tonight's dinner, I just whooped up a simple meal like this...
Penang white curry noodles without the creamer.... about RM1.50
And a packet of organic spinach... RM3.50

Oh gosh... I seem to be very calculative tonight...
Something is very wrong here... hhmmmmm...

  4. I am having ccf nearly everyday for brunch. Just can't eat enough but I can only eat 1 portion (one sheet - RM1.60) per meal. Your dinner got vege is got enough. Tell us the price is not calculative lah. Really hope you let out whatever is bothering you - write it out on paper to rant and then tear up the paper to keep it private. Could work.

    1. Yes, I do not like the creamer so I didn't add.. just curry Ipoh style instead of Penang.. .

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
