Short Holiday At Mercure Hotel, Singapore

SINGAPORE HERE WE COME!

We drove in to Singapore on a weekday. Or should I say, I drove in... according to Singapore laws on driving, once you become a permanent resident, you cannot drive in Malaysian cars anymore.  Hence I was the driver for the next few days in Singapore, no joke! :)

From Tuas, Johor, we passed the customs, opened our boot for inspection, went through the counters, showed our passports, paid the VEP or whatever it is called.... and using google maps as our guide, we managed to get to Mercure Hotel at Stevens Road without and glitch, Thank God for journey mercies, our one hour long journey was smooth.  Parked our car at the hotel basement and registered ourselves to this pleasant and comfortable hotel.
Driver in Singapore.... 

Our destination... 
Our place to stay for the next few days... 
Lazy chair for me to do relax while they work... 
From our 18th floor window.... 
20 minutes walk from our hotel to Orchard Road...
The hotel provides shuttle van service every half hour to and from
T-Galleria Mall at Orchard Road.... 
Very convenient for us....
We normally take the shuttle bus and from T-Galleria.... 
And walked around.... no shopping though...
Lots of walking and talking..... 
Good to be together again!

  6. The mall is spectacular, so modern and artistic; also huge! And your hotel is very nice, luxurious and lovely rooms. So Ipoh is about an hour from Singapore? Only a short trip.

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
