CNY Dinner On First Day 2015

Now mom is not around, I will make it a point to visit the eldest sibling from this year onwards...  We siblings may be busy with our own family matters day in and day out that we do not have time to gather with one another on normal days.  I feel that it is important to have a family reunion .... well, at least Once a year?  And I am so glad that I did....

It was an unexpected and an unplanned gathering.... I made a phone call and within minutes, we have arrived at her place.... 

Started off with greetings and the next thing before I knew it, a few of us were busy karaoke-ing already!

Will you still love me tomorrow??? 
My song will be.... 
Let It Be!
"I Don't Wanna Talk About It!"
Helping him to "cue"
Distracting him....
This mom is really distracting!
Steadily Singing, my fren here!
After a couple of hours....
Dinner is ready to be served!
 Needs no introduction...
All are Food Glorious Food!


 Simple meal for the eight of us!
 One for the album!
Thank you for the yummy meal...
Let's do it again next year!!

  3. I know and like all these songs. Happy New Year!! That is a nice big kitchen and the food looks really yummy! You all need to stick even closer together now that your mom is gone. She would have loved this.

  6. Last time granny lives with us, so the relatives visit us. Last year was the first year since she passed away, so we got pantang. This year, it has been a waiting game between those of us in KL. My dad is the eldest son, then there is another elder sister, both also waiting for each other to make the (visiting) move LOL!

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
