Scenic Sunday

After some tedious week, someonetold me to "chill out." For me, chilling out means going for a trip and drive leisurely at my own pace and time, of course, not forgetting to stop by for some "unhealthy" food on the way.

On Friday I went to Penang and today I was in Taiping. As usual we would go to the lake to have some "breather" and I cannot help taking some pictures again. Don't know why, the lake and the trees always seem to fascinate me a lot.... so serene and peaceful just looking at them...

me in front of lake...

Me with the branch... :)

  31. When choosing and buying baby fashion, parentage can be with many that, in the baby's days, can seem utterly confusing. Striking a balance between practical and cute, in vogue and comfortable, need and impulse, and night and day can all play their part in disturbing decisions on what baby attire to buy, and in what quantity.

    All of these in choosing baby wear are made of poorer quality by the fact that babies grow so immediately. You do not of necessity buy to fit now, but fit for the next few months if at all imaginable.

    When obtaining the first baby garments, and even with chart up shopping as the baby , it can be of use to remember a simple discord rule, a rule of . Your baby will when you come right down to it need three types of apparel: day dress, night wear (or sleepwear), and clothing for moneymaking out.

    The baby pajamas will have a tendency to be more important than the further categories, as sleeping like a log is what babies spend most of their time doing in the first . But how do you come to a decision what to buy of each? Well, that may dangle on how frequently you want to do dirty washing, but you will soon find a side by side that both your routine and the flat of spotlessness and smartness you want for your baby.

  32. Hi,

    Please let me explain how Blue Monday works. This link contains the instructions.

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

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
