A Short Vacation At Rasa Sayang Hotel, Penang

TROPICAL HOLIDAY... and it started with one of my friends informing us that she was going for a short staycation in Penang.  She would be staying three nights in Rasa Sayang hotel for a price of two nights.  It was a promotion then and after hearing that, we "succumbed" to going there as well.  LOL...  We quickly called up to ask more about the promotion and straightaway we booked the three nights stay as well.

Few days later prior to the booking, we found ourselves having a short vacation with my kids and my grandson.  The cost of the three nights stay came to around RM1600 with breakfast included.
At the lobby while waiting for the room key....
It was supposed to be a family room...
After checking in, we found out something...
The bathroom had a fishy kind of smell...
Straightaway my son went down to the reception to inform them....
And since there was no more family room available, 
they promoted the room to a suite!
The room has a big bedroom and a living hall as well...
Beautiful... and cosy...
View from the balcony...
We had buffet on one evening...
And the rest of the time was spent mostly 
around the vicinity of the area....
besides going to town for good food, of course.. 
LOL....

  2. Very very old hotel! I think it first opened when I first went to Penang at the end of 1973 - so big, so beautiful, second to none at the time! Not a good place to stay unless you have your own transport - the taxi fares will kill you! Your kids and your grandson? They came back from the US? Must be missing you a lot! 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....

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...
