Flower Dome And Marina Bay, Singapore

We continued walking our way by the Gardens By The Bay, skipping past some paths. It was almost evening then, the air was more cooling.... and along the pathway, this is a common sight....
  
 The scenery is beautiful especially the reflections by the lake...
We couldn't help not taking a family picture before we left... 
and continued our walk to the Flower Dome...
The lanterns are decorated in conjunction to the Mid-Autumn Festival.... 
Much were seen but not taken by my camera....
(I was sort of puffing then... LOL...)

To my surprise, there are some drinking utilities for one to quench the thirst... very good idea, at least the water is free and Singapore water is safe to drink....
What do you see here??? 
SILVER GIANT ANTS!!  aaahhhhhh.....
Fascinating!
Soon we reached the souvenir shop... 
We didn't enter the Flower Dome... that comes with an entrance fee
Since we are not nature lovers, we skipped that...
and off we walked towards the mall... outside only...
over here, we take 5.... (rest my weary legs)
Then we continued walking... another beautiful design....
Spiral-walkway... 
when one jumps, the vibrations can be felt beneath our feet...
Soon we reached the MRT station....
Again I rested my tired bones...
But not for long....
We did not take the MRT back to the hotel...
Instead we continued walking since Aaron said it was not too far...
er.... not too far means another half hour walk!
OK, no problem....
When I think of FOOD awaiting for us, 
surely the walking is NOT a problem anymore!
LOL...

  3. Good to know that they are providing free drinking water to tourists. I guess i am not visiting SG too soon, at least have to wait until the gap between RM and SGD becomes smaller :p

  4. If it is not too hot, then it should be nice to walk. So you got a lot of exercise during your vacation in Singapore. Very good.

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
