Bak Kut Teh Hin Hock In Tampoi, Johor

BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY WITH THE SKY UP BLUE...
We took a nice drive to Tampoi for lunch, a dear friend recommended that the Bak Kut Teh is famous there.  I am not sure I have been there before or not, it looks pretty familiar though when I reach there.  Well, don't ask me how come I don't remember, really I do not but my son said I have been, only that they have shifted from a run-down shed to a bigger looking neater space nearer to the main road.  No wonder....

The place was crowded to the brim when we reached around 1pm, if we want to avoid the crowd, best to go either at 11am or after 2pm.  Anyway, as the saying goes, if we can't beat them, let's join them!  Anyway, orders were made at the front and in about half hour or so, the food arrived....
Full to the brim.... 
There is a small stall outside the shop selling Muar Otak Otak... RM1.10 for each...
These were better than the ones we had in Pontian the other week... 
Fish flesh is more visible than the previous time.... 
Then our dishes arrived..
Fresh steamed fish which was on almost every table.... or should I say... all...
One look and I know this fish is very fresh... ahemmmm.... RM45
And the garnishings... just look at their generous fried garlic!
My girl could easily finish it all!
Then their signature Bak Kut Teh... RM20
We refilled the soup two times.... 
A small plate of Kiam Chye... *salted vegetables* RM3.00
And the three dishes came to around RM79....
With Clear blue skies, we headed back to our little nest to laze......
After all, it is a Sunday....

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

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
