A Visit To Marina Hotel Forest City, Johor

HERE WE COME...  Using Waze, we drove a half hour journey to Forest City, a popular resort which was the talk of the town, but unfortunately due to the pandemic, everything seems to be at a standstill.  They are having a promo in Marina Forest City Hotel, for only RM199 for a spacious room, a king size bed, a long sofa and a huge bathroom, this rate also includes 3 meals!  Breakfast, high tea and either lunch or dinner, our own choice.  Oh, this is not a sponsored post... I am just relating what I know and they have this promo banner displayed at the lifts!

We went in to have a look at the room... yes, we like it very much!  However we did not stay there, maybe the next time when we go Johor again... though the promo rate will not be around once the economy picks up.  Sad to see that everything is affected, hope this pandemic will be over soon!  Really yearn for our lives to be back to normal like before... 
There are 3 hotels just next to each other... 
Our destination is Marina Hotel.... 
At the lobby.... very huge and spacious...
Reception area....
Scenery from the 10th floor of the hotel corridor... 
The condos and the villas... wonder whether they are occupied....
A small jetty below....
Can even see Singapore from where we stood.... 
The spacious bed.... 
Even the bathroom was spacious.... bathtub on one side...
And the shower on the other side... with the toilet which was hidden on the left...
The love birds...
My friend taught me how to do this... hahaha...
Not sure I can still remember...
Scenery from the balcony....
Not bad, right?
On this side... they have these...
Whales? Dolphins or someone mentioned they looked like "cicak?"
oh no.... 
What do these look like to you?
After a short rest, we came down to walk around the vicinity....

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...
