Our Virgin Drive To City Square, Johor

JOHOR CITY SQUARE?

Oh, oh, I thought she was kidding when she wanted to go there this morning... just the two of us who have never drove outside our residential area before.  All we know is that City Square is in the Johor city and how to go there, we have to rely on our gadget, Waze and nothing else.  And so.. she dares.. and I have to go along with the "dare"...

Before we started off, I have to doubly confirm with her.. make sure her phone has battery, mine has only 20% left cos I did not expect to go to the city this morning.  And off we set out... with the nice steady voice of the lady directing us all the way to the city where it is known as the "Cowboy town" those days.  Really.. why cowboy, I wonder....

Yes, we reached City Square without any hassle, thank God.. smooth drive all the way, no, I was not the driver, only the navigator... She is the "darer" one... actually come to think of the drive now, it is quite easy, all the way straight to the city and back, but with the Voice, we are more confident.
Disney products are on promotion at the lobby... 
No, we did not shop first.. 
Our stomachs were "growling" for Food.. and it was almost 11.30am!
We went looking for Go Noodles shop at Level 6
BUT
It is only opening on the 9 September!  
Someone received wrong info, for sure.... 
We chose Din Tai Fung instead... 
We don't have that in Ipoh... 
I told my girl.. No sharing this time...
Each of us must have one main meal.... 
This time we must try their famous Fried Rice with Shrimps... RM21.70
Indeed there are lots of them hidden inside... more than 10 shrimps, I think...
I looked at the table next to us.. 
Theirs are evenly shaped.. ours are out of shape... LOL...
She ordered a bowl of Lai Meen with vegetables n meat dumplings.... RM20.60
Huge portions actually.... 
But we managed to finish them all.... 
Oh yeah.. we must have some desserts after our meal.... 
Sesame Peanut Balls for RM9.50...
Yes, we shared this equally too...
Cos we love them!!
ahhhh... That is definitely One Heavy Meal... 
Will definitely last us till dinner... 
So what's for dinner? 
Guess.... it starts with B... 
LOL...

  6. hah..hah.. memang your fried rice was out of shape! There is a Din Tai Fung at 1-U and I find the taste of the food is quite mild for me. I like my food more jazzy if you know what I mean.

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
