Happy Cheers With Families And Friends

On special occasions, food and wine go side-by-side.  Be it with family members, friends or corporate members, merry shouts and cheers are commonly heard during the whole dinner meal.  I had my fair share of wishing and happy cheers for the past couple of months and I am so grateful for the friendship that bestows upon me....
  
Cheering and wishing one another...

Being a Chinese, it is a common sight where my family gather around the table for a reunion gathering.  This does not happen often because my siblings are living apart from one another.  We have our own families now that we are getting older and our kids are grown.  Regardless of that, we make it a point to have a family reunion at least once a year to gather for a nice wonderful dinner together.
 
One of the happy occasions I had with my siblings in Sacramento...

Besides with my family this year, I had a great time ushering in the new year with a new group of friends whom I have just got to know a couple of months back.
 There were music and songs during the festive night...
Some were in the mood to "twist" and "shout" too...
It was indeed a very memorable night for me...
I never had so much fun joining in the singing and dancing!
I love to indulge in a sipping white wine once awhile... 
From my point of view, it really rejuvenates my body system...
Especially when the weather is freezing cold!
Lastly and not least... 
I wish you all Good Health and Happiness...
Peace on earth too!

*Alright, I know it is not a Christmas or New Year but something reminded me that greetings are never too much for one another... *

  6. Oh Claire, I believe any gathering would be fun with YOU there! I know you would be such fun! Maybe one day we could meet and I can introduce you to all our food! It looks like you make friends wherever you go, and people love being around you. It is always a MUST to get together with family, too!

  7. A family that eats together stays together, and the same with friends. Helps strengthen bonds.

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
