The Ten On Chap Goh Mei Evening 2017

11.2.2017 - IT WAS THE FIFTEEN DAY OF CHINESE NEW YEAR, also known as Chap Goh Mei in Hokkien dialect  According to history, yesterday was the 15th of the lunar new year and the last day of Chinese New Year which was also known as the "Lantern Festival" and Chinese Valentine's day.  On this Chinese Valentine's day, it is known to connect Chap Goh Mei with the traditional myth of young unmarried ladies throwing mandarin oranges incribed with names and telephone numbers into rivers in search of a boyfriend then husband.  Till this day, I wonder whether this is still being done traditionally or just for fun so as to keep the myth going on and on. :)

As for me and my family, we went out for a scrumptious dinner to mark the end of CNY... A Big Thank You to the dear member of the family who generously gave this dinner treat at one of the prestigious restaurant in Johor here.  The venue is Loon Sing Restaurant and it was the first visit for me and my kids to this place to mark this auspicious day.  Our dinner started around 8.30pm and ended two hours later.....
Loon Sing restaurant just opposite the AEON Bukit Indah....
Very impressive with the decoration and layout.. 
When we walked in, it was like doing a cat-walk..
Only difference is that we are not models and no one is looking at us...
LOL.... 
The tables on both sides are two steps lower than the walkway..... 
The place was crowded when we entered...
These pictures were taken after our dinner ended around 10.45pm... 
Most of the patrons have gone back.... 
Our dinner started with the Loe Sang as usual.... 
And the yummy dishes followed thereafter....
Not sure about the price but easily a four digit gua.. 
The dinner ended with a Dragonfruit Fish... 
Very impressive and creative...
And one for the album to mark this auspicious evening!

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
