Our Daily Job Each Morning

SUMMER PLANTING...

I like coming in summer, cooling or cold in the morning, sunny and hot in the afternoon and cooling or cold again in the evening especially bedtime.  This is also the best time to plant flowers and vegetables.  They only can harvest nicely during this hot season.  Few days prior to our arrival, the little pots of plants were awaiting for us, the land being plough and loosened..
John Deere tractor in action... loosening the soil.... 

Ready for planting.... 
Around thirty pots of greens to be planted... 
Let's get them dug in!
No, not me... the real farmer did all the digging and the shaping... 
Few days later... all done up..... 
The little ones are ready to go in... 
Our work begins each morning with watering all these little babies... 
Water cannot be too strong... 
Just slight shower will do.... 
Don't want to "murder" the little leaves.... 
The weather is so hot that we need to fill the holes up to the brim... 
Little Green Peppers can be seen after some days.... 
Lots of harvesting to be done in a month or so.... 
That is our daily task each morning... and on some evenings.... 
And the best thing is we are getting "paid" for these light jobs!
Free food, free lodging!
LOL...

  1. Thinking back of my summer in Europe last year, I did enjoy the weather there. Cooling (sometime chilling) in the early morning and getting warm as the days went.

    Now you learn how to grow plants and get paid. Not bad. Can use this skill when you are back in Malaysia.

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

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
