King Of The Fruits In Penang

I THOUGHT IT WAS DURIAN SEASON NOW EVERYWHERE... but it was not so.  I heard that our local durians are not abundant anymore, all these while, Malaysians are enjoying the King of the Fruits year in and year out with reasonable prices.  But not anymore from this year, durians are sold at sky high prices and one has to think twice to buy them or eat less than the usual portion this time round.  Okay, I am talking about myself, I really think twice, trice before buying and so far, I have not bought any as yet with my own money.  LOL....

The day we came back from Gentings, the very next day, we moved northwards to the Pearl of the Orient for our dosage of Durians!  My friend told me that there are cheaper durians in Penang, the season is on now there.  And we landed in Penang to taste the King of the Fruits for the Very First Time this year is in Penang....
Oh my goodness!  
Just look at the sweet temptations that laid before my eyes upon reaching Penang!
Not one box but all of these... 
Durians of all sorts of tastes... 
Surely we couldn't finish them all!!
But somehow I managed to "satisfy" myself with a bit here and there... 
LOL...
Durians must partner with this fruit called mangosteens.... 
While one is heaty, this white juicy fruit is to cool down our body....
Bought two kilograms and ate them all...
Malaysian fruits are really Something!!

  2. No, not the season but I think we had them twice at least early in the year. Maybe you were in the US then.

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
