A Fishy Post On A Thursday

TOOK MY 1 1/2 YEAR OLD CAR TO PERODUA FOR THE THIRD SERVICING... The total run is only 12,000 km, yes, this car is always staying at home most times, my girl seldom utilizes it.  Anyone who buys this car will be happy, it is like six months old car.  OK, any takers?  LOL...

Anyway, I was no more LOL when the man told me that the estimated servicing would cost around RM300 or more.... sigh....

After I left my car at the Perodua, my friend came all the way from her house to pick me up for breakfast.  Hefty bill or not, I wanted to have a heavy breakfast and it has been a long time since I last ate this fish noodles at First Garden.  It cost RM8.50 for each bowl now compared to RM5 during my working days few years ago.
Generous portion of fish meat with salted vegetables and wine soup....
Yes, the soup has a strong chinese wine taste in it....
Both of us enjoyed to our hearts' content.... Yummy!!

After our breakfast, my friend took me back to her house... 
Upon arriving, I saw these homemade deco in her garden...
They really caught my eye!
"Hey, since I have nothing much to post today, can I take these to post up?"

Just look at that....
Her old kettles and crock pot.... 
She is indeed very innovative!!
And there is another one here.... 
Her Guppies fishes are indeed very Happy!
Long time ago, I remember someone told me that watching fishes swimming here and there
.... is a good Destressing Therapy....
And this is proven right.... 
The two wooden stools are "ever ready" for anyone who needs a quiet time....
Perhaps one day I might get one of these above for my own garden...
But Wait till I settle down first.....otherwise my fishes will be homeless.... 
LOL...

  2. Wow! Your friend is very creative, innovative and smart. I am sure she is enjoying a blissful life with good feng shui at home with all the pots, pans and kettles pouring out wealth to the happy fishes. You must hang out with this friend more as she will radiate good frequency. Is your friend reading this? Hihihi

  5. Such a really lovely and crafty idea for the guppy ponds! One could sit there and look for a long time. The guppies are shimmering in your photos! The noodles look very good too!

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
