Mind Over Tempation In Li Yuan

It has been more than one month since my girl last came home... and what did she miss most about IPOH? It starts with "F" and it is a 4-letter word and ends with a "D"... Yes, all of you guessed correctly... Ipoh is just famous for its Food and nothing more than FOOD! She has a lot of food-lined-up during her four days stay back home.... From home cooked food to open air hawker food and to air condition outlets, Li Yuan Dim Sum is one of them in her mind...

How to order dim sum for two persons?  Started off with "ticking" what she wanted... and since I was still on "restriction mode" on food, I thought I could sit back like a "good girl" here and watched her enjoyed the food... hmmmm....
Our first time here in Li Yuan....
 Just opposite Sushi Zento in Festival Walk...
So...what did she order?  Here they are....
Mini Egg Tarts
Pan fried raddish... (took two small pieces when temptation won over me)
Took half of this... for self satisfaction... hahahaa...
Took one of these Mini Avacado with green tea dumpling.....
Last and not least....
Took half of portion of these Shanghai noodles!
Half of this and half of that made my stomach full already...
For two persons such as us, they were more than enough...

Well, I guess I didn't manage to be a Good Girl after all....
The mind is strong but the mouth is weak... LOL....

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
