Feeling Bali, Hongkong, Japan, Thailand, London At Times Square, Penang

SHEDDING SOME CALORIES...

Why do ladies like to eat but at the same time, so watchful over their weight?  Isn't it great to look rounded and not squarish?  This consoles me tremendously and though all my attire has grown tight around the arms and waist, I am still very thankful that my appetite is growing every minute of the day.  I am heeding the advice from many seniors saying that "while you can still enjoy and eat, don't ever think of growing sideways.  There will come a time that even the dragon meat will not look appetizing at all"  literally translated from Cantonese. 

So leaving the weight gain aside, we had our round of food in Penang despite the hot weather.  Not only that, we went to iMall at Times Square for sightseeing.  My friend had a good time taking pictures here and there, of course, that includes me as well... posing as instructed!  LOL....

Started off with the ground floor and going to other "countries" along the way......
Should we walk up or should we take some other kind of transport....
Shall we go by boat on water?
It might be sunset if we do that.... LOL... 

Let's take a "MRT" ride...
We started with Bali....
And stopped to have a rest....
Then proceeded to Japan ...
Oh, I didn't take any pictures of Thailand... 
We stopped there too...
Next is Hongkong...
Let's take a breather here....
oh yes.. we dropped by to see Mr. Bean on the way....
And finally back to Malaysia on a trishaw!
Thank you, Nancy for being my travel partner 
and spending the day with me!!

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

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
