My Full Time Job In San Jose

FULL TIME GRANDMA... LOL...

I have been looking forward to seeing my grandson ever since he was born and I thought that it would not be possible at all until he knows how to run.  LOL.. That was what I told my son, with the never ending Covid virus, we did not know when we would be allowed to travel.  

Now I am really here, it has been more than a month now and I am more or less settled down, being a grandmother and nanny, two in one.  LOL... How many years since I last take care of a baby?  More than two decades and I am back to refreshing course with this active boy!  He is going to be six months and still needs full attention to his needs.  So my real job here is just to look at him... look after him.... 

My "job" starts around 8am, I prepare breakfast in the morning and then breathe in the morning air while waiting for my "baby boss" to wake up.  He is usually bubbly in the morning and as evening comes, he becomes more cranky cos he faces more difficulty to sleep throughout the night.  Old granny here does not "jaga" nights, I would be very groggy if I do not have enough sleep. 

In between his naps, I quickly prepare lunch, simple ones for my daughter-in-law who works from home and for myself.  That goes for dinner too.... and time seems to fly each day.  That is why my blog has to be put on hold till I am really-really free ... 

Morning breakfast on most mornings.... 
Noodles for lunch.... 
Yes, the pantry is full of dry noodles....
I just have to prepare the ingredients to go with the noodles.... 
On some evenings, my son would buy back dinner.... 
Over here, there are always fries to go with fried stuff....
On this particular day, we had our dinner in the garden....

  2. Ho mia! Ho mia! We say in Hokkien! Meaning, a good life!!! Aha!!! At least your DIL works from home so you are not left alone with the baby. Always good to have someone else around.

    Your noodles look very good, the first one.

  5. I am sure this is one job which you enjoy very much. You are going to miss your baby boss when it is time to return to Malaysia.

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
