Canton-I Before We Bade Goodbye To Genting Highlands

TIME TO LEAVE GENTINGS....
The next morning we checked out around noon and took our own sweet time to have our breakfast cum lunch at Canton-i.  We have two hours to linger around because our "driver" would be coming to fetch us at 2pm. Our two nights stay at Gentings passed by very quickly but putting up posts have taken me almost a week to finish.  LOL...

My girl have decided the night beforehand that she wanted porridge from Canton-i.  I was like.. "what... "  Porridge can be easily cooked at home, why want to take the expensive porridge in Gentings... Oh well... I let her have her way...
Looking through the Giant Menu even though she has already decided... 

This is my choice... I love their springy texture of the wanton noodles..
Yes, the most expensive normal wanton noodles I have ever taken... 
LOL...
And my girl's smooth and silky porridge...
Not a speck of rice could be seen.. just like starch....
And she likes it this way... 
Alright, let me try cooking this way back home, I told her.... 
Soon... we were all ready to go.... 
The driver came exactly at 2pm... and in less than 3 hours,
we reached our Home Sweet Home....

  1. I've seen this and all the -i restaurants in the Mid Valley area but somehow I am not in the least keen on dropping by to try - Chinese cuisine does not get me all that excited...plus the one at Cititel KL is behind a glass panel along that shortcut from the hotel to the shopping complex...so everyone walking past would look in and look at you eating...like in a zoo!

  5. I would prefer your wanton. As for the porridge, I like with the rice grains still intact. This one is more like how my late grandma used to cook - reminded me of glue!

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
