An End To My Europe Trip

OUR LAST DAY IN AMSTERDAM DIDN'T GO WASTED... We had the whole morning and afternoon to go sightseeing cos we only need to go to the airport at 3pm... We quickly set out to another direction, Aaron said we must visit his place before we leave.....
Crossed the Skinny Bridge and instead of turning right, we turned left to Amsterdam museum....
Again, it was not a short distance... but the scenery helps to soothe our walk....
Soothing to our eyes and resting our legs as we walked along....
And stopped at an Italian restaurant to satisfy our tummies....
We were the early birds....
My friend ordered stew rabbit meat....
Aaron's pasta something....
And my free range chicken with Italian spices and herbs....
And our hot fresh mint leaves tea....
Soon we set out again and finally some minutes, we reached the museum....
But we didn't go in the museum this time... Just outside.....
Aaron said this is a Must-Visit place.....
No regrets coming here despite the long and cold walk....
Action.... 'she aint heavy, she's my mummy' 
Here 'I' Am!!
Just look at the crowd!!
Our last stop.... Amsterdam....
Our trip came to an end.....
My most challenging trip on wheels, one I will never forget....
Give Thanks in all circumstances....

  1. haha, yeah, must visit put the very last item in your itinerary, that's brilliant!!! I've heard of this "I amsterdam" and so glad you were there, now I can see the "real" thing with crazy tourists climbing all over, unlike the "lonely" one in photos~~ :D

  3. Very lovely scenery pictures. Your plate of whole range chicken with Italian spices and herbs looks very delicious. You finished it all by yourself? Museum building has a very beautiful design. You mean you go all the way and not enter the museum? Its funny seeing all those tourist climbing up the letterings. And lastly, you overcame the challenge of having to travel on wheels. Hurray!

  9. I did not expect that "I amsterdam" sign to be so crowded! Usually I see those travel bloggers' photos of this place to be so empty. How did they do that??

  11. Well done Claire! Achievement unlocked! I don't think there are many people who can claimed to have gone on a vacation on a wheelchair (those permanently challenged people not counted).

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...
