Korean Kimchi With Gaozi Dumplings

KOREAN MIXED.... 

The youngsters love Korean food, they made their own "kimchi" and brought a big jar home.  They taught me how to enjoy eating it and with addition to the kimchi soup previously, this time they made dumplings aka Gaozi in Chinese.  

To make the dumplings, they need minced meat, chives (ku chai), sesame oil, salt... and what else?? Oh yeah, a packet of Korean/Japanese pastry wrappers.... there are 26 pieces inside a packet.   And here is the hardest part.... wrapping up the Gaozi... I am amazed that my girl can do that... so gently, some more!  I tried with my clumsy fingers.... and ended up getting odd shapes... 
These are done by dainty fingers.... 
Odd shape ones are done by yours truly... 
but I have them hidden somewhere... hehehee...
Next.. get the kimchi soup boiling....
And then put the dumplings and let them boil again... 
Yummy... yummy.... I was salivating by then.... 
I boiled some a couple of misua bought from Sitiawan..... 
First round.... so yummy good!!
Each of us had to eat at least 8 dumplings!!

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
