Mala Hotpot At Bukit Indah, Johor

WHEN ANDY SUGGESTED GOING TO MALA SHOP FOR OUR DINNER, I thought he was indicating Indian spicy food. But I was mistaken, what he meant was Mala-hot pot, a China Sze Chuan dish.  No, it is not about steamboat, it is actually a dish, a traditional fried dish in fact.  I did not know what to expect, once seated, my girl went to a counter where all the raw ingredients were displayed.  With one tub in her hand, she picked the ingredients from there, whatever she likes, she put inside.  After that, she handed the two tubs to the staff at the counter, informing that the one tub is non-spicy and the other "little bit" of spicy.  LOL...

Yes, we were "pre-warned" that we should not take the "extra mala" aka "malak" otherwise our lips would be burning and our taste buds numb!  LOL...
I let my girl did all the picking cos I did not know what they would do with them....
She came here before so she knows what to expect.... she knows what is nice and what's not.. 
Surprisingly the place was crowded... so that means the food here is Good!
In no time our Mala Dish is ready!
Wahhhh... so it is like that la....
See how my girl's choices... Mostly Greens geh!
Oh, a bit of meat here, I noticed.... 
Anyway, we love Greens more than Meat!
This smaller dish is a bit spicy.... just right for me.. didn't burn my lips... LOL...
Oh yes, this soup must be not Missed Out.... 
Sourish with dices of beancurd and other stuff... I Like!
That was for our dinner.... 
Something different, kan?
I don't mind going again the next time... 
Now I know what to pick and choose... 
Yummy!!
Oh, the bill came to around RM80 plus for the five of us... 

Location: 28, Jln. Indah 15/3

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
