Half Way To Hakka Village, Balik Pulau

MY NEIGHBOUR TOLD ME THAT I SHOULD VISIT HAKKA VILLAGE IN BALIK PULAU... Oh, I didn't know there is such a tourist spot up on the hills, all I think of is Durians when one mention Balik Pulau or Laksa.  Since I am in the travel mode, I suggested to my friend who willingly oblige to go and have a look at the place.

Using Waze, we managed to go through some village and ended up at a small lane leading up to Hakka Village.  But the road was so narrow, we were having some second thoughts whether to go or not to go.... and while contemplating, we spotted something more attractive and eventually we aborted our idea of going up and up...
The road leading up to Hakka Village....
Looks kind of narrow, just enough for one car to go through.... 
Isn't this something more attractive?
We saw this crowd while on the narrow road and quickly we parked our car at the side...
The durian trees just next to the stall....
With the durian family looming above our heads.... 
This is a much better adventure!
Ladies do know how to enjoy Life, eh... 
I also WANT!
Beautiful on the inside..... 
Durians brings us together!
Let's eat and be merry!!

  1. I know you get durians any way and any how you can. But this is the first time I have seen you get them straight from the tree! The best and freshest way!

  7. Hmm.. I think now still not the best time yet. Wait another 2-3 weeks, then the liu lian season in full swing, all species of exotic liu lian also you can eat! :P

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
