Lovely Gifts With Sweet Memories

GOING BACK TO MY "EX-OFFICE" YESTERDAY BRINGS BACK SWEET OLD MEMORIES!

When I stepped in and sat on my old place, it felt like "Good" so "at-home" that for some seconds, I forgot I had retired because when the phone rang at my table, I automatically took it up and said "Hello!"  Oh my goodness!!  I was not supposed to do that!  And the best thing is... I didn't even realize my blunder till my colleague who sat beside me laughed out loud.  Then only I realize my mistake and still in a shock mode, I quickly hung up the call.  Oh dear, I hope the other side would not "swear" and "curse"... That proves how BLUR I am when I am in the midst of doing something!!

It has been more than two months since I stopped working..... I might not remember much about my work but I certainly do remember what others have given me before I punched out for the last time...
Some of the lovely gifts from my colleagues... I will always remember their kind thoughts!
 Love the foldable mattress..... soft and nice..
It is now utilized in Johor... 
I received this fleece blanket from my boss personally....
I will also take it to Johor.... it is "colder" there.. .
hahahaaa..
Induction cooker... 
I planned to take this to Johor too the other time...
But last minute, I forgot to put it into the car....
Love my Red Handbag too...
On the last day I received this handheld Massager!
Given by my colleague who wants to remain anonymous... 
hahahaaa... 
Really touched by his gesture....
He knows I am always complaining of shoulder pain and needs massaging every now and then...
So he told me that the best present he could think of is this electronic one...
I do not have to rely on anyone else after having this....

Looking at the gifts above, I really appreciate their kind thoughts and concerns.... If I could turn back the clock, I think I would like to retire the second time! hahahaa... crazy!

Talking about buying gifts, there is one website now which provides your one stop shopping destination, shopping is made very easy with iprice!  What do we have to do?  Just log in to their shopping categories and from there, we can also check out their offer coupons.  With iprice, they aggregates all the products from the most trusted e-commerce shops in Asia and globally compile them onto one platform. They are always looking for the latest coupons, deals and voucher codes in Malaysia in order that we may save big on every purchase.
Now I am thinking of buying some baby presents... my two ex-colleague has just given birth and I need to get some cute baby stuff for both of them.  Well, I am going to shop online here, no hassle and I can take my own sweet time to browse over them!

  4. Lovely gifts! What wonderful colleagues you have! When I retired, mine pooled together and bought me one thick gold chain. Would probably be worth a lot more now.

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
