Why Cuba Is A Fantastic Holiday Destination

Ever since I retired in March, I have been bitten by the "travel bug" and it is still biting me until today.  In April, I flew to Adelaide, spent a week there and came home fully refreshed with sweet memories.  A month later, I had a two months vacation in California, visited 25 counties and did not feel like coming home to my tropical country in July.  I wish I could stay there for another four months till my visa expired.  From July till today I have been driving out of state on and off, taken some domestic flights down south to save time on the eight hours drive on the road.  Coming to think of it, it is no surprise that whenever my friends see me, the same question comes out.. "Where are you off to next?"  Well, if I am given an opportunity, I have a few countries in mind actually and the most recent one that I was invited to is Cuba!

Why Cuba?  Yes, I was asking my friends the same thing!  Two of my friends are planning to go to Cuba and has asked me to join them but firstly, I wanted to know more about this fascinating island which is situated some miles south of the Florida Keys.

From what I heard, Cuba is an easy-going, multi-racial population which is still not fully developed and have its own unique individuality even though it is nearby to its American neighbor. Nevertheless Cuba offers a totally unique Caribbean holiday experience for all visitors especially those who love the sun, sea and sand, glorious flora and fauna and spectacular scenery in this very special island.  In fact there is something special for everyone who loves exploring into adventures and new cultures.

In Cuba, music is life, it is a home of music, more on modern rumba, mamba, cha-cha-cha and salsa.   There is one saying in Cuba, "Sing like no one is listening and dance like no one is watching." Wherever you go on the island, the music will be following you!  You can be just that, right in the city of Cuba, a place where you can just be what you wanna be, whether you are walking to the market when a gang of guitar-playing troubadours start to serenade or you could be eating at a sidewalk when the waitstaff breakout into an impromptu rumba!  Well, it says that music is life in Cuba!

When it comes to accommodation, they are easily accessible, just try Esencia Experiences.  There is a wide selection of places to choose from, whether hotels, resorts, beautiful historic colonial buildings, commercialized or non-strategic locations, depending on individual choices.  In fact there is so much to see and experience in Cuba that it would be nearly impossible to do it all on just one visit.

All in all, Cuba is a world of rousing rhythms, luscious landscapes and the friendly locals make charismatic Cuba a top travel destination for lovers of music, food, culture and life!

Well, this is what I have heard and read. So lovely, I am memorized..... one fine day, I might find myself surfing the Caribbean seas, basking under the cooling sunset in the evenings and moonlight... who knows, this Cuba might be my next choice of destination in the coming months!

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....

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...
