Surviving Without A Gadget

Let's talk about our modern gadgets today.  What are the most important gadgets to us these days? Well, for someone like me with three grown up kids, I never leave home without my faithful handphone by my side.  Whenever I go for a walk, I'll always have my smartphone with me; firstly, I can snap photos around by using my smartphone and share them on various social media sites and secondly and most important of all, this is my source of communication with my kids.  Other than that, gadgets like iPad, laptop, desktops, they are my important items in my life now.

But as important as it is, I realized that sometimes you have to be disconnected from these devices to be connected with your loved ones. And so one day, I decided to take a little timeout from all devices for ONE hour to just live my life device-less, just like the good old times.

It was quite difficult for me as I have been pretty much dependent on my gadgets for everything in my daily life, but having an hour to myself without any devices with me gives me time to not only cook an extra dishes for my children when they're back for visit (as I have no reason to stop cooking just so that I could snap photos and share them on social media sites) but I also managed to play longer with my dog and make conversations with people whom I neglected to say hello to when I do my daily walking routine to the park.

An hour off from all your tech device. I think it's a pretty cool thing to do daily. I've done it and felt that I'm much more connected to the world than I ever before. Below are some suggestions what we should do so as to build up a bonding with our love ones. :)

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....

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...

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
