Bukit Kiara Park And Nyonya Desserts

The very next morning we left Rawang around 8am to start our program for the day. My friend took us to Bukit Kiara Park in Tun Dr Ismail area... (I think that is what it is called... Half way to the park,  I startled my friends when I made an exclamation!  "Oh NO... I left my camera in the room!!"  Sigh... no turning back because we were going to reach that place, no way we were going back to Rawang...

What a Blunder Blogger!  Camera is supposed to be the most important item for a blog traveler... and knowing me, it is not surprising that I leave things behind every now and then....

Putting the disappointment aside, I looked at the brighter side of things, at least I still have my faithful handphone with me... don't fret so much otherwise the whole day will be spoilt...

My friend wanted us to experience the Bukit Kiara park...we have a reason to go for a GOOD LONG WALK.... I guess you know the reason why, right???   Yes, after the long walk, we will feel so "guiltless" if we stuff our stomach with lots of FOOD!! 
 At the entrance of the Bukit Kiara Park where cars were parked...
It was a sunny morning.... 
My friend led us to walk up the steps so that it would be more cooling on higher ground..  
Much cooling up here cos of the trees on both sides of the mountain...
Nicer scenery too .. but unfortunately, my HP is not doing a good job....
Lovely park to go for one or two Big Rounds...
my friends broke into a run.... I was tagging behind...
Well, I wouldn't mind coming by here again... 
Especially when there is a nice Nyonya Van awaiting outside the entrance...
Jenny Hong... 
Have you seen this van before?  I heard there are a few of them here and there...
My friend told me that everything sold here are good to eat and drink!
A few types of Nyonya kueh.. we bought a few to try...
True to her word... they tasted Great!
Should have bought more... each piece selling at RM1.30!
Well... after the Long Walk, it is time to move on to our second program of the day...
Time to take our Brunch!

  2. Nice park with beautiful scenery of greens. Looks quite well maintained. After exercise you gain back your energy with all the nice nyonya kuih.

  3. Did you see any monkeys in the park? I heard there are monkeys there. Eat to exercise or exercise to eat? Good that at least you exercise and not just eat, eat, eat like some people do.

  9. You know Claire. I've not carried my camera for several months already. All the pictures in my blog are taken using my iPhone 4s. Too lazy to bring along a camera everywhere these days and since the iPhone take good pics, that will suffice :)

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... 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
