Long Journey To Las Vegas

ON THE ROADS....

After resting for two days in Sacramento, we set out on the roads to Las Vegas even before the sun is up.  Aaron has never been there before and he is looking forward to this trip tremendously.  As for me, this is my fourth time getting ready for the long long journey ahead.  The whole journey takes more than eight hours, stopping several times to rest and filling our tummies with food.

This time it is not so taxing on my BIL, there is an extra driver who can take over the wheel while the other can rest.  Along the way, we stopped by Apple Anne's for our breakfast and desserts as well.
Ours is in-between breakfast and lunch... 
At Apple Annie's.... 
We had American breakfast... a light one too... 
We had English breakfast.. or is it American?
Stopped at Route US66 for Frozen Freeze ice cream...
Aaron enjoyed it tremendously too!
We stopped at the most busy McDonalds at the State intersections..
Got some hats for ourselves on the way.... 
Las Vegas is always a hot city!
Aaron became a "Captain" on that day too.....

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....

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
