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 bonding and cooperating, both of us are actually quite fast!  LOL.... 

So what did we do?

Pineapple cookies!
She did the pineapple jam and I did the pastry....
Though I used two sticks of butter, the pastry was not buttery but soft and melt in the mouth..
I will definitely use this recipe again... 
It is featured in Rasamalaysia and from one of the bloggers... 
Peanut cookies with cashew toppings.... 
I like this recipe too but I forgot from which one...
Must google back the recipe... 
The cookies just melt in the mouth... 
Not that I want to compliment myself... hahaha....
We did these cornflakes with cranberries... 
Florentine cookies.... 
My DIL likes them...
Just egg white and sugar and they stick to the molds... .
And lastly and not least, I have to do these....
Couldn't find them in the supermarkets...
Anyway, it is quite easy to do as long as the oven is free... 
A very meaningful bakes this year indeed... LOL...

  1. The cookies look so good! Will the baby get to eat any? Who will take care of him when you leave?

  2. Wahhhhh!!! Your daughter in law is quite a baker! Wahhhh!!! Make your own bak kua some more!!! My missus only made two types of cookies, we bought all the rest, bought our bak kua or given by people too, though we do not know why as we did not hold an open house - #staysafe #staywell

    WHAT? SIX MONTHS only? So fast!!! What will they do when you are not around? You're not staying there permanently. Hope your house in Ipoh is still there - there was a terrible storm, a tornado there the other day, houses all blown away. Never before!!!

  3. Definitely great to be bonding over baking with your daughter in law. Can you apply for extension to your stay in USA?

  4. You really had a good time there with the baby and cookies baking. I love that Florentine and anything nutty crunchy like that cornflakes with cranberry. You could easily open a stall to sell your delicious bak kwa there!

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....

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...
