Oh.. oh... I missed the flight to the Lion City!
I was supposed to fly yesterday from Ipoh to Singapore at 4.50pm...
But I am still in Ipoh today... 
Because one of the reasons might be this..... 
Yes, The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is in IPOH!
How could I miss this Big Sale??
I joined in the crowd this afternoon.... 
Parking was not a problem... 
As soon as I arrived, there was one car coming out...
How blessed!

After reading so much about the Happenings in Facebook,
I was contemplating whether to go or not to go...
And the decision to come was finally made 
Singapore trip was hence cancelled... 
Believe it or not... hahahahaa...
Exaggerating here.... 
I spent quite some time here... 
Looking at the crowd... browsing through the books... 
Indeed they are very cheap... very irresistible..
But queuing up to pay is a problem...
They told me that it almost took an hour to pay....
Thank goodness I saw her....
She was queuing up...
And that gave me time for more "browsing!"
My minimized loot!
Really refraining from buying lots...
Well, BBW... I am finally Here!


  1. You didn't catch the flight? What airline? Any refund? Any charge for rescheduling? I know MAS, RM100 per passenger per sector.

  2. :O the books you bought ended up very expensive! (includes the air tix)

  3. Wahhhh cancelling a trip to borong books. You're as bad as Meow. lol

  4. Alamak, how can you forget. Is it your first time? So tix just burnt off or can reschedul?

    1. Burnt off, Irene.. I really didn't go Singapore..

  5. I saw you had Enrich no. column. Wah, so gaya fly with MAS? :-)

  6. Ohhhh, i am sulking in a corner, sobsssss u didnt come...

  7. Drama queen... I thought you got some airport incident story to tell...
    I rarely visit book fairs nowadays, I do most of my books shopping online (eBooks)..

  8. I must be daft. I don't understand this post. All I know is you bought some books at bbws and you didnot go to Singapore. Actually why did you burn the ticket?

    1. For some other reasons, Mun....

    2. Other reasons that cannot be revealed here? :)

    3. Thanks for being so "zing mook" hahaha...

  9. You actually cancelled a flight just to go to a sale? Salute you, Claire! I thought I'm the one with a Blackbelt in Shopping. Lol!

    1. Hahaaaa...i exaggerated, Shirley... But I did burn the ticket fir some otherr reasons...

  10. This book sale must be really huge! How often does it come? We have something like this! It Comes a few times a year. It is called "Blue Ridge Valley Book Sale". Now let's see what you got!

  11. Wah.. This time very near me, might plan a trip there, hehe!

  12. Yeah, we want to know why you burn the ticket :p and I thought you not going to BBWS ...hahaha

  13. When I see the title, sounds like Meow.. hehe.. Wow glad you manage to grab those goodies and your loot looks good..

    1. My loot cos me around rm100 .... One book cost around rm8...

  14. I have never been to BBW sale. I love books and will probably need to hire a lorry to cart away my purchases hah..hah...

    1. Yes, that is why some don't want to go... renting a lorry is expensive.. hahahaa...

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
