UP And UP On Eiffel Tower, Paris

FINALLY, WE REACHED EIFFEL TOWER AFTER THE LONG WALK.....

Our determination... 
More from Aaron and my friend... their hard efforts paid off....
Took a few pictures before we crossed over to feel the "real thing"....

Then when we saw the super long queue at the Eiffel Tower, Aaron and my friend were quite disappointed... Not me though, that means we couldn't go up, right?  Both of them wanted so badly to go up the tower whereas I rather stay down and look up instead..... *height phobia*... Well, actually I have mixed feelings.... 
Part of the Long Queue from one end to the other.....
Someone looks happy though... 
Thought we didn't have to go up....

I told them to go ahead, I would wait for them to come down but the Super Long queue was holding them back.... then they saw a sign... "For disabled/prams, line up here" and the queue was empty!!  Oh...oh.... that means..... 
Yes, that means.... I have to come up!!
All the way up... I CLOSED MY EYES and told them to block the view when it was moving...

For those on wheelchair, the ticket cost 4 Euros and that goes for the companion as well..
Normal ticket cost 11 Euros... we saved a fair bit here again!! 
So I sacrificed my FEAR for them.. after all, they have done a lot for me... 
hahahaha....
Anyway, so glad I did come up.... 
Not so scary actually... I only created my own fear!
Everyone is happy!
Scenery was breathtaking.... too bad our cameras didn't give much credit....
The scenes before sunset....
I couldn't see much of the view sitting down.... so....

I need to stand up for a short while.... to show my presence.... 
hahahaa....
We took a lot of pictures before and after sunset....
It is really a Great Privilege to be up on Eiffel Tower...
I never thought it would become a reality for me.... 
Thank you!!

  6. A blessing in disguise indeed. I have not been up there and I don't think I will due to the long queue and also the weak local currency so no travelling for me. Good to see all of you enjoying the view up there, especially you for conquering your fear of heights.

  9. See, I told you Europe is a very "cacat friendly" place. Top tip for the travelers: next time, break your travel companion's leg when wanna go to places with lots of queue, trade off is you have to take care of him/her, but the trade off is worth it hahaha!

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...
