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.

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...
