The Long Journey From South To North

TIME TO HIT THE ROADS AGAIN... Yes, our ten days stay in Johor has come to an end.  We woke up early in the morning, packed our stuff into the car, bade farewell to our little nest and adjourned to have our breakfast before we headed for the highway.  During our stay, we did not have Dim Sum till the very last moment, my girl suggested going to Changman.  According to my son, prices have gone up steeply... oh well, nothing surprising, everything seems to have gone up and I told him that we would go to check our the prices... we simply cannot leave JB without going for our regular place of Dim Sum... 
 My girl's favourite BBQ dumplings... she finished the three of them... 
I took a small bite only.. they are mini-sized anyway...
I had Chicken Koay Teow soup... my girl took a small portion.... 
Steamed Chee Cheong Fun with BBQ pork...
And a plate of three mini egg tarts...
Before we left, we also packed some cakes and dumplings... 
Just in case we get hungry on the way... 
We started our journey around 10.30am.... 
Weather was good, thank God... traffic was smooth.... 
And my girl drove 3/4 of the five hours plus journey... 
Young people's eyes are always sharper, right!
We reached Ipoh around 4pm... 
This is the first time both of us drove alone without the guys.... 
For the journey to and fro, the expenses came to around RM250...

  4. 5 hours? Wowwww!!! That's a long time but then again, you have nice highways there. Here, you would probably need 10 hours, same distance.

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
