I Left My Heart In San Francisco

BYE BYE... my six months stay has come to an end...

My flight was at 8pm and we reached the airport around 5pm.  It was just forty minutes drive away from our place to San Francisco airport, even if I had forgotten to take something, it won't be too late to make a detour.  LOL... Anyway, nothing was forgotten... I just left a piece of my "heart" behind, literally... LOL... 

Actually I came back quite some time already, the conditions were still stringent then.  At the check-in counter, they still need to see my Home Quarantine approval letter; and PCR test certificate apart from the usual passport and ticket.  Thank God, all went smoothly..... and soon it was time to bade farewell to my love ones.
Bye... mummy, daddy....
Unfortunately no.... he didn't bring along his passport!
Ok, next time then.... 
Meanwhile... Mar-Mar got to go...
Reached Penang airport via Singapore after a long flight...
Since I had Covid in US, I was exempted from home quarantine...
And I was "freed" after doing RPK test....
It took around half hour only and I was out from the airport...
Time to ravish Penang food!!


  1. I am sure it was heartbreaking to rip yourself away from your cute grandson, so so sad. Bet you miss him a lot every day - if I were you, I would just apply to stay there permanently - dunno about the US but I hear in countries like Singapore, dunno how true this is, they even give special consideration to parents to come and stay with their working children to babysit for them like they will give them extended visas to stay as long as they like!.

  2. your grandkid has grew up alot, healthy & chubby face boy! I believe he can now come to visit you after the border opening on last month.

  3. I love the pics of you and the baby! I know you will miss him so much!

  4. Lovely photos. Hope you will be able to see all of them again soon.

  5. After 6 months helping to take care of your grandchild, it is not easy to part with him.

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
