St Giles The Gardens At Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur

My girl and I went to the wrong hotel in Mid Valley... Instead of St Giles at The Gardens, we entered the Boulevard St Giles instead...both having the same name but different locations altogether.... yes, we were kind of "jakuns?"  My son had not arrived yet, he came up from JB whereas we took a bus down from Ipoh... so both of us were kind of waiting at the wrong lobby!

Anyway, all were made right when I approached the check in counter and made an enquiry... and he told us that it was not the same.. though by the same management but different hotel altogether...the staff there was so kind and friendly, he even "offered" us a bell boy to take all our luggage and led us to the right hotel at The Gardens.  So nice of the bell boy too, leading us all the way through the Mid Valley shopping mall with our luggage all in the trolley... Well, "sik joe la" after that....  hahahaa...

My son was caught in the jam and he came thirty minutes after we did... it was lunch time, what else to expect in the city center?   
And finally.... our hotel room!
The welcoming beds....
And the vast restroom....
 Then we proceed to Madam Kwan for our late lunch...
It was almost 4pm then!!
 Both of us could finished them all.... !
As for dinner at 9pm, we had a "Lighter Meal" at Nyonya Colors...
And we called it a night after that...

  1. Very late lunch but a delightful one. Used to stay in the hotel next to Mid-Valley twice. Convenient and near to shopping mall.

  2. Nice nyonya dishes. Eyeing at that bowl of ais kacang. I can gulp down the whole bowl especially during this hot weather.

  5. Your hotel room is so nice. I did not even know that the hotel at Gardens is called St Giles. Why only two of you ate at Madam Kwan. Your daughter did not eat with you and your son?

  14. Whenever my foreign guests asked me to recommend a hotel, I would always tell them Mid Valley!!
    That ideal location is most central with choice of hotels and quick exit to airport.

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
