Last Minute Shopping Before Leaving Hatyai

THE VERY NEXT MORNING AFTER OUR BUFFET BREAKFAST AT THE HOTEL, we took the Tut-tut to the market which was just a ten minutes drive away.  We have a few hours to while away in the market, that is where our goodies were bought...  Yes, most of the stuff belongs to my girl, no new clothing though, just a backpack, dry foodstuff and a set of Zebra thermos.  That is the most worth buying item, I can say......

No pictures on the market..... but on the way back in the Tut-Tut cab, we saw this.... 
A group of pretty ladies were singing on the road....
Not sure they are singing or rapping or promoting something... 
But they sure look like they were enjoying themselves... 
Back at the hotel, we packed up our stuff and checked out.... 
It was about noon and our transport would only arrive around 3pm...
With a few hours more to go, we checked out the shopping complex just beneath the hotel....
Security at the entrance.... 
There was some event going on, something like Thailand got Talent contest... 
We went up to the second level where the Idea Market was held.... 
Lots of souvenirs for sale.... kind of tempted but our bags were already full and packed up...
We only got some earrings... 5 pairs for 100 bahts.. 
Heard that Swenson's is worth eating over here.... 
Since we were still full from the buffet breakfast, we just ordered a "light" one to try...
One piece of chocolate moist cake and one scoop... 139 bahts... almost RM15?
Slurpilicious! 
The van arrived at the hotel punctually at the scheduled time... 
Driver was obliging, took us around to see the outskirts of the town
 and stopped at a convenience store.... 
Recommended us to buy these "Giant Vitagens" home.... 
And so we did!
I think it cost around RM4 plus for one bottle.... 
That is the end of our short stay in Hatyai...
The next time we go, we will plan for a longer stay!

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
