First Night In Penang Island

By the time we left the airport, it was almost 8pm... our stomachs were already "growling" by then... so wasting no time, we went to a nearby "chu chau" stall along the main road. Since we were super hungry, we ordered four dishes to be eaten by the three of us... 

Oh, don't ask me the name of the stall, we didn't really notice the name... all we wanted was a quick and nice dinner..... 
The crowd behind us.... 
It means the food must be good, right?
Though we ordered 4 dishes, 
the portions that were served were actually quite small...
Stew Yam with Porkie...
Baby French Beans....
Steamed Red Fish Thai style... 
Anytime lemon grass, I am IN!

And lastly and not least... Kapak aka Clams with basil leaves...
The dinner came to around RM80 cos the fish itself cost RM44...
 Aaron seems to be saying..
Let's go for desserts later!!
Yes, The night did not end here...
We adjourned to Karpal Singh Drive.....
Just look at what we ordered...
Yes, we were a bit "crazy".... but then... 
how to have a good night sleep without these??
No such thing as diet in Penang...
That's for Sure!

  4. With good company, must go and fill up tummy nicely, no need to nibble here, nibble there to eat less. Red fish is that expensive or is the fish very big?

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

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
