Nearly One Free Lunch

When 3 ladies get together, sit down, eat and talk.. what would be the consequences?

This afternoon, I took two charming ladies to the best chicken rice stall in Ali Pitchay Street. They haven't been there before, I told them to hurry cos normally during lunch hour, the shop will be very crowded. True enough, it certainly was but we managed to get a table right at the end corner.

We talked, talked... food came... we walloped.. conversation resumed when suddenly I remember I need to go to the bank. Quickly we stood up and walked out of the shop...

Upon reaching the bank, Elin took out her purse and asked, "eh.. how much was the meal? who paid just now?" We started to look at one another... nope, I didn't pay.. did u? NO?

Gosh!! None of us remembered to pay the bill.... we just walked out of the shop!

Conclusion: We drove back to the shop and Elin went in to pay. The man recognised her straightaway and he was laughing.. Elin asked him why didn't he call after us... he said he wanted to but by the time he came out of the shop, we were nowhere to be seen!

(cis, as if we walked so fast meh.... maybe he purposely want to give us free lunch?? LOL...)

  3. Hahaha.... My parents had had the same experienced before but they didn't go back to the shop on the very same day cause they only discovered it after they had reached home. However, they called up the restaurant and informed them about their mistakes... Btw, the restaurant is in Ayer Kala (between Lenggong and Gerik).

  4. Oh this is very funny!!! It is nice to see people with integrity who are so very honest like you are, and you went back to pay. When things like this happen to us, we call them "senior moments", although you are still too young to use that as an excuse! I would have liked to see a picture of the chicken and rice, yum!! Before you try washing the grapes again, read my comment on that below.

I just walk out of the clinic without paying and the lady at the counter was shouting for me in her cubicle. haha....No medications was prescribe but still need to pay for consultation fee (I see the doc for some allergic problem). I totally forgotten about paying. The lady was there laughing at me too! so paisey.

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....

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 bond

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
