Penang Murals And AEON BIG, Farlim

HAVING NOTHING MUCH TO DO IN THE AFTERNOON, MY FRIEND TOOK ME FOR A RIDE TO THE NEWLY OPENED AEON BIG IN FARLIM... With the blazing sun looming above us, it was indeed a hot day especially there is no shaded car park in the huge open area at AEON...We drove up to the parking inside the building thinking there would be covered car park... but alas, it was just a roof parking, as hot as it is at the ground level.... Seems Everyone have to park their car under the hot scorching sun.

Alright..so what is in store for us here... AEON Big is one of the main tenants... upon entering, most of the shop lots are still very vacant and empty.... but instead of seeing the empty  shoplots, they were replaced by interesting murals from Penang... not actually the original murals painted on the walls here but canvas type hung up while waiting for the shops to be occupied.... A very good idea actually...
Upon entering, one can feel the Penang atmostphere.... 


I am sure shoppers will find it interesting to take pictures as they walk along.... just like me! 
Looks so real and nice..... 
Reminds me of the Malacca heritage houses too...
It is like so-like Penang over here....
Interesting and fascinating, right?
At least someone has come up with this idea to make up the empty lots at the mall....
And this the real scenerio on a Wednesday afternoon.....


As I was wheeled along the way... no obstruction... all in full view.... 
Along the upper level....
Cooling and nice....
Quiet time for us retirees to come here and have a quiet walk... 
A nice time to catch up among the oldies but the goldies like this picture here....
Yes, this is AEON BIG...
Indeed it looks huge here...
Chinese New Year is coming soon...
Hope by then, more shops will be opened to attract us customers....

  2. I like the interactive murals, can sit on the stools or in the trishaw for photos. Ours here, no such thing, not impressed.

  4. I went there before and the mall is really empty, lots of shops are still not occupied, and the most funny thing is, those at the ground floor are temporary only, separated by partitions, haha.. hope more shops will move in soon..

    1. You went there before? You mean before it was opened? Just only recently it was newly opened...

  5. Beautiful murals paintings & it reminds me of Penang. A good & creative idea to use canvas. Looks so spacious the shopping mall.

  6. Hopefully they will install some metal shelters/roofings for the open air car park to shade the cars from the hot sun. Brilliant idea to print those banners with the mural pictures for the public viewing,

  9. I think someday Penang would be full of murals until there are no clean and empty walls left.

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...
