My Early Birthday Gift

BROKEN PIECES....  I have intention to get a new iPad while I am here in US but never expected to get one so soon!

While in Sacramento, my old iPad gave up on me.  It slipped out of my hands suddenly and fell on the hard concrete floor.  Yeah, my bad, not my iPad, I did not manage to hold it properly and one second, it crashed downwards.  Landed on the wrong side too, the impact on the screen was too hard, when I picked it up, it was crushed... pieces of glasses went through the hardware.... oh no, so sorry for that, my iPad!
The impact of the flooring must be really hard... 
Fell from less than three feet.... 
Guess it is time to let go... 
It has been with me for more than 6 years or 7..... 
Bye bye.....
A week later, we went to the Apple mall to collect my new companion.... 

My new companion.... 
The latest version of Mini iPad...
So that I can hold it properly!
Now the next thing is the Overcoat...
Really must protect it for at least one decade...
LOL....
Thank you TC for my early birthday present!!

  1. Lucky you!!! Old folks say if things do not get spoilt, we will not have the chance of having new ones. Now you can blog more regularly, I guess? Do handle it with care, ya!

    Happy birthday in advance, bet you're going to have a grand celebration there!

  4. A wonderful gift! You were lucky to have your old one for this long. Our Granddaughter's stopped downloading things after it was about three years old. I guess they do get obsolete.

  5. Wah, nice to get new gadget. Sad about the previous one. Please be extra careful. Things broken are ok, can buy new ones but elderlies when fall, cannot buy new ones so please be extra careful. ❤️

  8. Your old iPad wants to retire knowing that it is time to go. The old has to go before the new can come. Lol! Happy birthday to you in advance.

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
