And Our 2021 Thanksgiving Feast Began

FULL COURSE... and all of us were seated around the table... 8 of us.... (baby went for his afternoon nap)

My son again had the honor to say Grace and a Thankful prayer and after that, the feast began... "Pass me this please, pass me that please.... pass this around... thank you, thank you..... "  This is what happens when the table is not round but rectangle.... 

Oh, I forgot to show the turkey..... 
Ok, don't get funny ideas..... 
I am just showing the stuffings....
Sideview might be better.... 
Ready to be cut....
The Captain cum Chef officiated... 
then the knife was passed over to my son... to do the rest....
Laying out the table....
Finally food is ready!
Sliced turkey...
Another turkey cooked by our Filipino friends...
Cranberry jelly....
Stuffings and Macaroni and cheese....
Peas and bacon.... 
Well, I guess that was about all...
Except for the 3 pies in the fridge....
And the patiently awaiting guests...
All ready to feast after this is done!

  1. Yes, the sideview is better! LOL!!! We are not fans of turkey but will eat to follow the tradition - at Christmas, not Thanksgiving...with cranberry sauce. My missus prefers to buy a BIG chicken and roast that instead, the meat is nice, she insists.

    Such a lovely gathering! I love the crockery! So pretty! So classy! Here, usually, we will see all that plastic or melamine...or stainless steel.

  6. Don't really like turkey but for special festival, it is nice to enjoy around with loved ones. Bought turkey once, hardly could finished it at all. Ended up using the leftover in salad and spaghetti. Lol. Turkey is better enjoy with lots of people due to its size.

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....

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

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
