Ya Ge Restaurant At Orchid Hotel

SECOND ROUND OF THE DAY...

After our Ya Kun bread-fast, we walked around for a bit before having our second meal of the day at a special place called Ya Ge restaurant at Orchid Hotel.  I remember I have been to this hotel once, not to stay but to the parking lot only.  LOL... Yes, my son parked the car there few years before but not to eat at this restaurant.  LOL... 

Since our tummies were still full from the Ya Kun bread in the earlier part of the day, we did not order much at Ya Ge.  I was told that this special place served exquisite dumplings aka "siew loong pau" .... yes, indeed they were very special.  At this time of posting, I have forgotten what were inside these six dumplings, each of them consist of six different flavors altogether.  I should have known better, being a senior, I should have make a note somewhere, right?

Yes, six different flavors...
Let me test my memory a bit...
Starting from the blue one...
Oh dear, I cannot remember.....
But I do know there is the normal original flavor...
Then Tomyam, Bak Kut Teh, 
Aiyoh...
 I guess that is all I could remember...
Blame my memory loss on Covid!
For the four of us..... 
Yes, more than enough... 
Another Yes for Good Taste too!
My friend ordered these too....
With Yam fillings...
Cute chicks.... 
I consumed one of them!
Their set of Scallop Siew Mai is also special...
With these dishes, my tummy was filled to the fullest...
Really, I must go for a long walk before any more consumption!
Before we left... yes, it was kind of quiet....
Another fine dining meal, I would say...
Thanks to the youngsters who led the way and gave us a scrumptious treat!

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
