Friendship And Food Knows No Bounds

SINCE IT IS SORT OF "CONFINEMENT" PERIOD FOR ME, I was thinking of the confinement food that I used to eat during those yesteryears... hahahaaa...  

When my friends called me to say they were coming for lunch, it was no surprise to them when I mentioned that I was yearning for some ginger wine chicken!  And they readily agreed to wherever I want to eat.... so nice of them to come pick me up, patiently waiting and helping me to lock up the door and hopping to the car with my faithful walker.... and then we set out for the confinement food...

Till today, I do not know the name of the shop, it is just No. 2 to us.....
It is a corner house along the main road in Ipoh Garden....
And every lunch hour, there are cars just parked outside the house..... 
Quite popular even among the young adults.....
My friends ordered pineapple juice.... 
Vinegar pig trotters with an egg...
This portion is for one person and each dish came with a big plate of brown rice...
And a piping hot ginger wine chicken with black fungus...
I could eat and drink the whole bowl by myself if I were really under confinement..
But since I am not, I dare not drink it all...
Don't want to risk having sore throat the next day!
With so much meat, a plate of greens is best to go with our meal.....
Thank you for the "confinement" lunch, dears...
And Thank you for coming to visit me time after time
Thank you for helping me with my chores and hops too!
I hope our food adventure will start to begin.... again....
Food and friendship know no bounds, I guess!

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
