A Wedding Buffet At 59 Sixty At Komtar Towers, Penang

THE MAIN REASON FOR CHECKING OUT FROM ROYAL HOTEL TO JEN HOTEL is to attend a special wedding dinner at the 59 Sixty Dining and Bar in Komtar.   We checked into Jen Hotel (formerly known as Shangrila and Traders) because this hotel is the most convenient for us, just a few minutes walk out from the hotel to Komtar in our dinner clothing and high heels without having to cross any roads in broad daylight.  LOL....

We checked in one day earlier to get us familiarized with the surrounding and on how-to-go-about so that we would not be late for the wedding.  Somehow, we managed to find the place through some walkways here and there.... and we make sure that there are special landmarks for us to remember so that we would not get lost the next day.  LOL....

The wedding buffet started at 11am and we were right on time.... since we were the first early birds, we took endless pictures of this beautiful dining hall....
View from the 59 Sixty in Komtar.... 
Part of Penang at one angle... 
From another angle.. through the window panes... 
The Penang bridge could be seen.... 
Komtar Tower is the highest building in Penang....
The place where the wedding was held.... very nice ambiance.... and free style... 
Early birds can have more time lingering here and there... 
And I sent my "photographer" out to take whatever is seen...
Just a small section from where we were seated..
Most of the main dishes were covered up.... 
Initial takings.... eat slow and steadily..
So much to savour and enjoy.... 
And we the early birds... before the buffet started... 
And when the buffet ended.....
It was almost 2pm and we made our way back to Jen Hotel...
Checked out and drove back to our home sweet home in IPOH....

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
