Fine Dining At Canoe House, Mauna Lani, Kona

ONCE A LIFETIME OR SHOULD I SAY YOLO? 

Yes, we only live once and we should enjoy to the fullest... within our means, of course!  LOL...And that was what we did. 

On this special evening, my son booked a reservation at Canoe House in Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts for dinner.  I did not know what to expect except that he told me that it was a fine dining open air restaurant overlooking the sea.  

When we reached, I felt that I was home in Penang, very similar except for the beautiful sunset and cooling wind... and of course the food is different too.  The three of us ordered a 5 course set, not knowing what to expect except the best... LOL.... It cost $95 per pax and I think it is really worth trying.  As I mentioned earlier... YOLO... You Only Live Once!  LOL..... 

When we entered the resort, we felt that we were being "stared upon"...
Yes, no kids, no babies in sight... nor Asians too!
Some were looking at our baby in the pram, cooing to him.... 
Oh I guess this hotel is not for kids...
I asked my son... "did we come to the right place?"
We had our dinner here....
here.... 
Looks like our Malaysian beaches right?
the sun was going to set....
lower and lower.....
So beautiful....
Catching closer glimpse of the sunset....
The love birds went to capture these before the food arrives....
And soon it was nearly gone...
First course....
I finished to the last drop or piece.... LOL...
Second course.... 
Third....
Fourth one...
And dessert as the 5th course..... 
And this was complimentary cos of wedding anniversary.... 
Don't forget to mention during the reservation!
LOL...
Yes, our life time experience...
or should I say, that is my once-in-a-lifetime experience.....
LOL.....

  1. "Yes, we only live once and we should enjoy to the fullest... within our means, of course!" DEFINITELY!!! Especially at a time like this - even when we have the money, we really don't know what to do with it. Don't want to eat out, don't want to travel...just #staysafe #staywell #stayhome and we jolly well can't take all that money with us when we go!!!

    I save around RM500 because I stopped smoking, another RM500 as I stopped buying TOTO, around RM200 on petrol (and some more on car servicing) as I hardly go out these days...so when I shop for food and fruits, supplies for the house, I will just buy, never mind how expensive! I can afford it!!!

    What a lovely place! What lovely views!!! Happy Wedding Anniversary...to your son and his missus, I suppose...not you! 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....

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...
