Vegetarian Dishes On First Day Chinese New Year

FIRST TIME... on the first day of Chinese New Year, we went for vegetarian set meal at My Home Noodles in Ipoh Garden.  Yes, first time for us to go there during CNY... normal days, yes, I love the food there, price is reasonable and the taste suits me real fine.  During those years when my late mom was around, she used to fry vegetarian meehoon and a mixed vegetables dish called Loh Hon Chai in Cantonese.  For desserts, she would either boil red beans or "Ching Poe Leong"... I really miss my dear mom... ever since she passed on, my siblings and I celebrate reunion in our own separate homes... It is so different altogether...

For this vegetarian meal set, it cost around RM238 and these are dishes we were served...






I don't mind coming again the next year... 
Not so much on the food but family togetherness...

  2. Oh? We never have this practice, vegetarian on the first day. So much food to finish, leftovers from the reunion dinner...have to eat up everything as soon as possible, nothing wasted.

  4. The dishes look so tasty! They even make the vegetarian dish look like a fish! I think the price is reasonable.

  5. These dishes are so pretty, especially the one with purple. Sounds like your Mom really helped hold the entire family together. I wonder if the oldest sibling could now have everyone over for the New Year meal..

  6. Very healthy lah, right? My family does not observe this but I don't mind eating vegetarian during CNY or anytime. Oh, they made the fish look so real with a tail some more!

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
