Day Tour To Covent Garden, London Tower And Tower Bridge

SIGHTS TO SEE.... sightseeing time walking around the city exploring the London Tower, the bridge, walking all the way from here to there and everywhere!

First time visit for my sister and she was so fascinated with the places we took her, so different from US and she really loves it a lot.  She kept saying and repeating that she would love to come back again to London... she knows where to stay, how to go about it at the tube station and so forth.  Well, I hope we shall come back again in the near future!
We took her to Covent Garden.... 
Live performances at the market... 
As usual, I cannot resist Ice Cream!!
Regardless of the weather!
Queued up for Ben's cookies... and ice cream for myself...
Yes, only Me is the One for desserts!
Having a good time at Covent... before proceeding to the Tower of London....
The icon of London... 
As usual.. long queues going into the castle... 
Marking our presence here and there.... 
Walking along the Tower Bridge.... 
Skies are blue... nice weather ...  YAY!
It is all about walking and more walking...
Prepare to wear a good pair of comfortable shoes.... 
HMS Battleship Belfast... 
A panoramic view... 
Peace to London!!
Good to be back again even just for a few days!

  2. I love London. It has character. Don't think I will go again though - I can't stand those long haul flights. Problem is I can't sleep when travelling.

  3. What a SUPER tour! Did you know there is a group of ravens that live in the tower, they are said to bring good luck. There is a raven keeper who looks after them. He wrote a book and I have it.

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
