Our Road Trip Up North, Pearl Of The Orient

OUR ROADTRIP CONTINUES....

This time we moved up North and the three of us were pretty excited about it.  Both of them had not been visited Pearl of the Orient for a number of years already.  For this trip, we would be staying four days, three nights at two different hotels due to some special reason.  Started our journey early in the morning so that we would reached in time to have our brunch....

While driving, I didn't notice the dark clouds looming above
But it is pretty obvious now as I post this.... 
Thank God it did not rain though it looked alarming... 
Managed to find the Best Koay Teow Thng here at Cecil Street Market Hawker Center...

Yearning for a hot piping bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng with duck meat...
Should have ordered without the "clots" though.. 
They look kind of "gross" here..
After separating them and leaving them aside on a different bowl,
the rest was history... *patting stomach*
Next stop... Penang Road Kek Seng for the Laksa...
My sisters said it was not sourish enough... 
But the Sweet Delights of their Homemade Durian Ice Cream Ice Kacang 
was pretty well received with lots of hmmmmssss..
Durian Ice Kacang served on a plate.... 
Time for relaxation after a full stomach.... 
Royal Hotel along Jalan Larut... 
From our 9th floor, these scenes greeted us... 
Red Roofs is the KFC in bungalow style... 
And some footprints to show we are Here!
LOL...

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....

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

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
