My Experience On The Airbus 350

MY FIRST TIME TRAVELING ALONE was to Aberdeen in 2019.   And now alone again in 2021 to a different country under trying times as in this pandemic

While I was preparing for my long trip, I was slightly discouraged by the alarming advice which I heard.. did I make the right move traveling at this time?  Long hours on the plane, 16 hours from Singapore to San Francisco, putting me at high risk among the passengers, breathing in the same air throughout the journey.... kind of scary... only consolation is that we passengers have to do our swab test 72 hours before we board the plane.  What if we contract the virus after our swab test?  That sounds kind of possible too... 

In the plane itself, we have to put on our masks at all times except during meals.  While boarding, I felt more encouraged when there were only a small number of us.  I was supposed to be sitting at th3e window seats, sandwiched between the front couple and a single guy behind me.  Before taking off, I asked the stewardess whether I could sit at another row which has 4 empty seats and away from other passengers and she said of course, I could.  Quickly I landed myself with the row of empty seats, where I could put my stuff on my left and right.  

Throughout the journey, I wore my mask when awake and only my face shield when I slept.  I watched 3 movies, went endless times to the toilet cos I drank a lot of water to keep myself hydrated and 4 packets of snacks.  Yes, I slept a lot cos I took half of the Novamin to relax myself... 

A very comfortable flight I would say, I would certainly go for SIA Airbus 350 for ultra long flights is definitely very worth it... their seats are much bigger than the normal economy ones, with ample space in front and leg rest as well.  No wonder I slept a lot... LOL...

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

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
