Laksa Under The Tree In Sg Ara, Penang

MEALS FOR THE DAY...
I heard that there is one popular Laksa stall under the tree in Sungai Ara, I told my friends that we must go and try it out.  Unfortunately we  did not manage to during our two different trips to Penang, we did not give up.  Our persistence paid during this trip, we saw the stall opened during one of the late afternoons, it was almost 4pm.  Yes, it was under a big tree with a few tables here and there.  One look at the place, we hesitated for a moment... "Is this really the famous Laksa stall shown in the social media?" 
A very humble stall at the roadside under a Big Tree... 

The stall was located just opposite a row of residential double storey houses... 
Saw the owner of the stall walked back to take some ingredients in one of these houses.. 
It was manned by a One Man Show... so we waited for awhile before we were served.. 
Introducing The Laksa in Sg. Ara.... under the yum yum tree... 
The prawn paste was served separately upon request...
I prefer mine without the paste... 
At last we got to get the taste of it... 
How was it?
Hmmmm... 
Soup is thick and concentrated... 
Yes, worth going to try it out if you are a fan of Penang Laksa!

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
