Day Trip To Fringe Festival, Edinburgh

SATURDAY IS FINALLY HERE!!
The trio set off early for a rrip to Edinburgh which is less than three hours drive from our place.   It will be only a day trip for us for we were not able to book a suitable accommodation in Edinburgh.  The festival of the year is on.... Yes, it is called Fringe Festival... I did not know what that is until we reached there.  This is my third time visiting Edinburgh but it is my first time experiencing the excitement and happening in this city.....

On the way, we stopped at Dundee to take a short rest at the Tay Bridge.  Weather was simply beautiful. Sunny skies all the way.... Soon we reached Edinburgh and our little girl was most excited...

I think We lost a lot of calories here in Edinburgh.  After parking our car near the castle, it was all about climbing stairs to the Edinburgh castle and walking endlessly along the strrets to join in the crowd.  We were there for more than four hours and our parking fees alone came up to £17.50!  Okay, don't convert... Lol... Let's just enjoy the sights while we walk...
Rise and shine on our day trip to Edinburgh....
My driver and back passenger....

We settled for these... Two handsome hunks... Lol...
But we could only get their pancakes... £3.50
Thumbs up!

Joining in the crowd... Even Pokemon Go was in the itinerary.....

  3. I have visited Edinburgh a few times and like it. Nice place. Fernie is the same name as one of trio, right? Must go to Fernie castle and take photo then.

  4. What an adventure, I love this! The homemade bread looks beautiful, and so do the special butters. I love pancakes! Looks like this was mostly breakfast foods? Your kids look so beautiful and happy! You have really raised them to be wonderful adults, something to be so proud of. HA! Never heard the term Welfie, a new word for me.

  9. Edinburgh is a lovely place but the wind, grrrr😁!

    I have never been to the Edinburgh Festival. I hear tickets for good shows are sold out, long before the opening of the festival. I had been to many shows in theatreland and it had its premier at the Edinburgh Festival.

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
