From Mount Fuji To Oshino Hakkai

AFTER THE SNOW PLAYING AT MOUNT FUJI, we proceeded on the bus journey to Oshino Hakkai, less than an hour away, if I am not mistaken.  Not so accurate about the bus rides cos most of the time I would be ZZzzzzz whenever the opportunity arises so that I would be more refreshed looking when my photos were taken!  LOL... Just kidding!

Alright, so what does Oshino Hakkai has to offer?  I remember this place, been there before, we walked through a small village... Itinerary says.. The eight ponds are fed by the snow melt from the slopes of nearby Mount Fuji and the water filters down the mountain through layers of lava for over 80 years, resulting in very clear spring water that is revered by the locals. 
Clear spring water from the Mount Fuji lurking behind.... 


Tourist spot.... for us... 
Don't fall into the pond... 
Filled with fishes and cold spring water from the mountain... 
Reminded me of those dramas I've seen... 
Besides sightseeing, there are shops as well.... 
Samples to taste... and to buy... 
We ended up buying lots of crackers and other snacks from here..... 
Despite the cold, ice cream is still irresistible... 
Soon it was time for lunch!
Part of the food... 
Plus Meat plus beancurd pattie...
Served with hot bean curd soup...
Makes me realize this shop must be famous for their smooth beancurd... 
Love their springy steamed rice... very nice.... 
Our healthy lunch!

  5. You are so blessed to have such clear view and photos for Mount Fuji. When I was there, the local guide told us that seldom the view will be clear.

  7. What a lucky girl eating ice cream in Winter. I have visited Japan so many times but yet to see Mount Fuji. So shy to confess....

    The Japanese eat lots of soft bean curd that's why their facial complexions are smooth and milky white like Tofu. I am not kidding.

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...
