Day Trip To Yosemite National Park

WOKE UP EARLY TO MAKE A TRIP TO YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK... It was a three hours drive and we reached there around noon when we reached there.  I really did not know what to expect except that it is about mountains, something like the Grand Canyon.  I was told this is even more beautiful than Grand Canyon.. serious?  Well, after spending nearly half a day here at Yosemite, I really must agree, it is indeed very beautiful, left me standing in awe for many moments at certain areas.  If one is into nature, I would highly recommend this National Park, this is not to be missed!

Briefly about Yosemite National Park from Wikipedia, it is a national park famous for its granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves, lakes, mountains, glaciers and biological diversity.  Visitors reached 5 million in 2016 for the first time in history..

No wonder when we were there on a Wednesday, there is still a large crowd everywhere, parking was full, however we managed to get one.  Shuttle buses were easily accessible every ten minutes and we have a nice walk through nature while admiring the wonders of God's creation every now and then.

  1. Thanks for the lovely photos. All I know about Yosemite Park is that they have bears up there. Did you spot any bears?

  2. The waterfalls are beautiful! But I think my favorite picture is the first one, where you drive right through the rocks!

  6. Wah! Wah! So cantek nia. This place is really stunning and beautiful. I would love to camp there overnight.

    I didn;t go to Yosemite as it was Winter at that time I was in California. I really must go in future since you said it is nicer than Grand Canyon.

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
