Plants And Kiwi Cherries

FALL IS HERE... sometimes it is cold till I have to wear long sleeves and pants, but today is sunny.  I am still surviving with short sleeves and shorts at this moment.  LOL.... 

We have a very small mini size area and the soil is very fertile.  During the summer, they were very productive, I mean the plants, not the humans.  :)  Every now and then, these need to be plucked, I like the cherry tomatoes, they are very sweet even when eaten raw.  Oh, I forgot to take the cilipadi pictures, too bad... they are pretty dried up by now.  Buying cilipadi (hot chillies) in the malls is not cheap and during this season, we have to pluck them and put them in the freezer.  The plants will go into "hibernation" during the cold season..... 

Sometimes I eat them raw and most times, I just add to the vegetables I cook.... 
For flavor.... LOL...
Capsicum and they come in odd shapes....
See..... short and stubby.....
Butt shape too!
This one is most normal..... 
Oh, we did not plant these.....
They are Kiwi Cherries....
I think they are seasonal.... 
Very small kiwis like grapes....
Taste nice and sweet....
First time eating them and they don't come in cheap...
For a packet of less than 20, it cost around $3.99
The next time we went, they were not sold anymore....

  1. Muahahahahaha!!! That butt-shaped one is hilarious! Lovely cherry tomatoes.

    The ladies in the house have gone into planting vegetables and their tomatoes are starting to bear fruits. Thankfully, we do not have any problem with changing weather here...but I do love the cold climate overseas, so nice to just sit around and relax and enjoy the cool fresh air.

    Cute mini-kiwis!

  2. The weather there is great for planting tomatoes and capsicum and many others that won't grow well here unless in the highlands. You should have kept some of the kiwi cherries seeds and try to sow a few plants. Love the odd shaped capsicums. Home grown ones are great for eating raw.

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
