From San Francisco, Hongkong, Kuala Lumpur To Ipoh

THE TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO BADE FAREWELL TO MY TWO MONTHS VACATION...  Yes, it is exactly 60 days since I last landed in San Francisco airport, my flight ticket was quite cheap then, only around RM3700 economy class with limited space to put my legs... *wish I could spend more money in first class next time but I know I won't* hahahaha... Really... 18 hours flight is no joke especially for long legs people, mine are short and still feel the crampiness...  hahaha...

I remember on the May 19th at around 1pm, I was feeling so happy when we finally landed in SF...

See what I mean... hahahaa....
Adventures was going to begin then....
Now two months later.... I am here again....
Sitting at the check-in hall...
Time to go home.... 
I was having mixed feelings...
On one side, I am ready to go home...
On the other side, I wish the holiday didn't end so soon... 
hahahaha...
We came with four bags...
Home with six! 
And it would be even more if not for the weight limit..
Each person can only carry 100 lbs to check in and one cabin bag...
Waiting in line to check in our bags.. 
Anticipating the moment....
It was a relief when our bags didn't exceed the limit...
We could still bring in another 2 lbs in each bag.. hahahaa...
Regretted that we didn't pack an extra bag of walnuts! 


The flight from SF to Hongkong was smooth and on schedule,
 in fact it arrived earlier than expected...
Despite the lack of sleep, we still managed to find some appetite 
savoring a bowl of beef noodles and..... 
.... a bowl of duck meat noodles right here at the Hongkong Airport...
hahhaha...
Two bowls plus tea cost us HK$169 equivalent to $24usd!
Ok, I better not convert back to ringgit... 
 My "charn" look at the Hongkong Airport...
But no regrets la... my duck meat noodles was very tasty despite the price!
Hahahaha...
Now I am home... 
All went well despite the 24 hours journey...
Thank God for journey mercies...

I just woke up, couldn't sleep AND it is only 4.30am!!
Guess it is called "Jet Lag"....
Just might as well get up and write this post... 
hahahahaa...

  8. I usually find it harder to adjust to the jet lag when I come back to Malaysia too. It usually takes me at least 2 weeks to become a barely functioning human being again! Welcome home! XD

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....

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
