We The Tourists At Jonkers Street, Malacca

ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHINESE NEW YEAR, we went for a one night stay in the historical town, Malacca!  The traffic was pretty smooth on the highway but once we reached the Malacca toll, the road leading to town was all pretty jam up with tourists... And we made the mistake of going straight to Jonkers Street for our lunch of all the places....
We got down from our cars while the drivers went looking for parking.... 
So many tourists like us....
And the cars were moving at a very slow pace...
Probably all were looking for car park....
Right in the middle of the Jonkers...
People here and everywhere... 
I thought this was an eatery place... but more on desserts and souvenirs...
My girl has to queue up next door instead.... 
While queuing up, this attracted my eyes....
Eat while they are hot....
As for our lunch, never go on a crowded day....
Don't mind the presentation....
Eat just to fill our tummies... 
20 Chicken Balls....
And our lunch for seven people cost RM102....

My tired and exhausting look... 
Can't wait to check in to the hotel and ...............  
RELAX......

  3. Long time I didn't eat Putu Piring. Dishes looks good & instead of chicken rice ball, I prefer the loose rice.

  5. If I ever want to visit Jonkers street, I better remember to go on normal working days. Wouldn't want to be caught in traffic jam.

  8. I went Jonker once to buy the nyonya chang some people blogged about - went round and round and round so many times in search of the shop and the woman was so snooty like hers were the best in the world, not friendly at all...and the chang were just so-so only - much nicer ones in Kuching...from much nicer people.

    1. There are always different types of people everywhere not just in one place... too bad she discouraged you from buying anymore... I like the nyonya food there...

  9. Lastime b4 trying chicken rice balls, I very harap can try.. Then when I tried it at Jonker Street, I still prefer the normal chicken rice (served on a plate), coz the balls type are a bit sticy, and I think they add water to be able to roll it with hands.. I can imagine eating people's "daki" on the balls, coz they roll by hands, haha..

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

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
