Qing Xin Ling Leisire & Cultural Village As Tour Guide

IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN HALF A YEAR since I last visited Qing Xin Ling, the leisure and cultural village here in Taman Saikat, Ipoh.  This morning brought me here again despite the hot weather and I noticed the place has indeed changed.... for better or worse, I prefer not to say.... hahahaha... 

Anyway despite the heat and sweat, we had a great time walking and listening to the golden oldies from the jukebox there....
Ok, at the entrance.. all ready to set out and GO!
The old jukebox that plays the oldies but goldies!
*Chin Tien Putt Hwey Chia*
Trying to imitate some Bollywood scene.... 
The lush greenery.... 
And hey... where are you going, Swanny?
Oh, she is also gazing at what I am doing too.... 
Admiring.....
Added huts for relaxation....
The hidden caves....
The woods....
..... And I....
Acting like a tourist too.... 
Not sure why this is here and someone probably might be thinking the same thing....
Oh oh... something is definitely not so right... 
A more shady area here.... 
But I like these Giant Leaves...
And the last one.... 
Having a FEEL of how the milling is done... 
*A pretentious pose*

  1. Claire, I think the jukebox is a good idea but I hope the music is not too loud. I agree with you, why is the "ship" there? Maybe a sampan will do ha ha! I like the photo of you with the giant leaves. I used to have one in my garden but no more.

  2. Every pix of you looks so stylo. I think you have posted this place once if I am right or is it a different place. Nice place but sad the water looks muddy.

    1. Yes, I agree with you, Irene.. the water is indeed not clear maybe due to the rain water or renovation...

    1. It is still under renovation in some parts... I hope they won't overdo it.. not a very big area and if overdone, the place will look congested..

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...
