Bugis Food Court, Singapore

After dumping our bags in the hotel room, we joined our hands and walked a few meters away to have our first proper meal in Singapore. The Ibis Hotel here in Bencoolen is at a strategic location, it is right in the middle of Bugis area, walking distance to nearby food courts and stations.

 We joined in the festive atmosphere here.. Lantern or Mooncake festival, lots of foodstuff for sale, fruits, lantern decoration and so on.... 
 
It was really fun walking along the roads without feeling any fear of being harassed or snatch thieves lurking around the corner.  One feels so much safer walking around in Singapore!
I think I were the only lady who wore the handbag this way...  
There were so much to see actually... but our stomachs were sort of "growling".... 
 The food court is just around here.. within the vicinity....
Our first meal at the food court...
 
Everything looks good... I had a BIG bowl of this.... 
Only $2.50sg... such an Enormous portion...
This is the dry version with a bit of spicy ingredients...
Desserts while waiting for the food...
Tau Foo Far... only $1.00 per bowl...
After our scrumptious meal and satisfied stomachs, 
we adjourned to our next destination....
Gardens By The Bay!

  7. I totally agreed with you, I feel safer and at ease walking in Singapore too. Every way is so clean and Singaporeans abide by the rules that make their country a better place to live.

    I like their food too! If not for the high currency, we will want to go visit Singapore again.

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
