First Evening Spent At Ong Shun Restaurant, Johor

ON MY FIRST EVENING IN JOHOR, we had a late dinner, it was almost 8pm when we reached Ong Shun Restaurant at Jalan Abdul Samad, Kampung Bahru.  After a heavy lunch, the timing was just right.  The crowd was already in full blast but service was swift.  Within minutes our food were all laid before us.  There were five of us and we were all full to the brim with the scrumptious dishes....
The noodles were the best!  
I ended up taking most of them instead of rice... 

It is a mixture of meehoon and koayteow...that's the way I like it!
Steamed egg with Otak Otak...
Three cups chicken.... cooked with basil leaves among other ingredients...
Sweet potato leaves with fermented beancurd... 
Brussels with just garlic... lots of them...
Long time no eat clams.... but the flesh seems to have "shrunk"... 
A must-order Mantau...to go with the sweet and sour sauce...
Something like the crab type of sauce... very nice... 
Yes, that was about all... 
Price?  I was not the paymaster... so I didn't ask...
hehehee...
Anyway, it was a very full dinner for me...
Both Andy and I watched TV while waiting for digestion...
It was almost 2am catching up with the Law & Disorder...
That was my first night in JB!

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
