Five Of Us Gathered At Old Man, Ipoh

A FEW OF US EX-SCHOOLMATES gathered for a dinner to celebrate the November "babies" ... Yes, I know I posted a post on a dinner with my ex-es recently at Lanna Thai restaurant.  That is a different group... LOL... and on this evening, it is another group whom I also mix with.  Well, I guess I am a "good mixer" in school last time.  LOL... Just kidding!  Frankly speaking, I held a very "low profile" during my school days, not many know me then in the 1970s.  Well, now in the 2000s... I am still the same.  Mention my name, many of them still reply, "Who?? who is T... S... L.... Can see picture first??" 

Alright, back to my low profile birthday celebration, five of us had a simple dinner at a place called Old Man Restaurant!  Yes, what a name for a restaurant, I must ask the owner one day the reason why it is named Old Man.  Yeah, I know what you are thinking.... Add a Dirty in front and everyone will remember this place forever!  LOL...

Since there were only 5 of us, we ordered four dishes to accommodate our tummies....
Very flavourful Yam with Braised Meat.... 
I "stole" the yam only from this dish ... 
Recommended is the Chicken Chestnut in Claypot... 
A bit sweet cos of the sweetened chestnuts.. 
Not too bad, something different... 
I welcomed this dish with open arms... 
Claypot Cabbage cooked with Glass noodles and beancurd skin.... 
Yes, it was fuming hot when served.... 
Buttered Mantis.... goes well with the dinner anytime!
The Four dishes for the Five of us... 
Bill comes to around RM70plus with drinks... 
Not too bad at Old Man, right?

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
