Pre CNY Lunch With Friends At Delight Restaurant

IT IS FEBRUARY... THAT MEANS I HAVE RETIRED FOR A YEAR NOW... 365 days have passed, the day when I retired is still so clear in my mind. I don't miss the office work at all but I do miss my colleagues who have worked with me before. Even though we do not work together at the same floor, we have so much fun being together with one another, during our tea time and lunch time gatherings.  That, I would never forget....

With this apps group, we still keep in contact with one another and when someone mentioned a gathering to commemorate a "Close Work Lunch" aka "Sau Koong Chau"... everyone readily agreed to the suggestion.  Never mind whether we are working or non-working, we really look forward to our getting together session!
And so our gathering is held at Delight Restaurant...
Refreshments sponsored by one of us retirees... 
While waiting for the rest to arrive, these was what we did.... 
*welfie-ing* and *yam-sing-ing*
These condiments were served as appetizers....
Our first dish!  
Loe Sang with stripes abalone...
Followed by the "Lang Poon" aka "Cold Dish"
The first dish itself has us half full already!
And we had steamed fish....
Special Kai Lan... Steamed stem with crispy fried green leaves....
And this dish appeared again... the one I had just few days ago.....
Last and not least, my ex-colleagues whom have been working together with me for umpteen years...
Yes, our group is getting smaller and smaller...
Some are being transferred and some have retired...
Anyway, big or small group, it does not matter...
It is the present that counts... 
And I hope we have more of these Food Sessions for joy and laughter!

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...
