A Creepy Night In Nanjing

Friends asked me about the accomodation while I was touring in Shanghai. I told them for the seven nights we were there, we slept in seven different hotels. Of all the hotels we slept in, only the Nanjing one was a bit "uneasy".... (yam yam cham cham)...

Maybe it was due to my own imagination cos during the day tour in Nanjing, we were taken to the place where the Massacre took place in the World War Two and many thousands of chinese were killed in that place where we visited earlier. When we entered the hall, it was quite dim, some of the skeleons (real ones) were numbered and the details were shown on the exhibits, the gender and the cause of death. And the environment inside the hall was very "sad and quite eerie", perhaps with the sad music looming around the hall added to the eeriness....

Okay, coming back to my hotel room, I sensed some discomfort upon entering, on one side near the dressing table, the light was whitish and quite dim, not like our florescent type of lamp. Above our single beds, there were another 2 sets of warm light,(yellowish), very dim too... so imagine white and yellow lights, they didnt blend very well and made the room even creepier...

Well, that night I didn't tell my room mate for fear of scaring her too... hahaha.. but when she chose the bed next to the wall nearer to the toilet, I know she felt something too... Anyway, to cut the story short, there were 2 big arm chairs facing my bed and I felt like there were someone "big" sitting there and looking at me throughout the night.....(sei mei) .. That was my imagination during that time.. I don't know why I felt that way... before I slept, I turned the other way...

Next day, upon checking out, both of us "checked" our notes and our feelings about the room with my other 2 friends.. Well, they were smarter, so it seems.. my fren hung her "panty" on the door... she said can shun "unwanted visitors" off... hehehehe....

Well, as for the other nights, the hotels were "okay".... once or was it twice, I cannot remember, we left one bed vacant... both of us squeezed into the single bed.... it was more comforting than sleeping alone in the single bed in an alien hotel...

  5. well, it could be due to the earlier trip to the museum which has feedback to your subconscious mind about the supernatural.This is possible ..i remember once when i went to genting, someone told me stories about haunted rooms and corpses under your bed. When I finally checked in, it made me so uneasy at night.

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
