Travel Plans

Autumn  is coming soon, how about making a trip to Europe?  i have not been to the many countries in east or West Europe as yet.   My last furthest trip was during the spring and I spent two beautiful weeks in Scotland.  The weather was at its best,, it was very cooling and I love it very much though I was wrapped up from the top to the bottom.  This was my second trip to Scotland, my first time to this beautiful country was in the 1980.  I was there to attend my brother's convocation and that was my first trip overseas. I remember during my two week stay, my brother took me around a few places such as Edinburgh, Dundee and down south to Lindon.  I can still remember the historical castles and one of them is the Edinburgh Castle.  It was one of the most memorable place I have ever been and I wouldn't want to miss it when I went there again last April.  The scenery was so spectacular! I can remember going to the beautiful parks and gardens, the flowers were fully bloomed then. Now thinking back I wish I could make another trip to Edinburgh once again. I would love to visit the cathedrals and the museums, Mary King's Close and the Outlook Tower.

But the next trip I would like to visit are some Europe countries such as Italy, Austria, Belgium, France and the list goes on and on.  But before I go, I must get more information about these places I wanted to go.  I am sure my kids will love to follow me.  My second son has plans to further his studies in UK. I have seen him checking out details on some universities and I hope he will make his decision soon.  His finals will be in December and hopefully by then he will be able to make up his mind.  Before he goes for further studies, we hope to do some traveling, together as a family.  I guess traveling is in our blood... Lol... Most important thing is money when it comes to traveling especially to faraway places.  Better put some savings aside from now on, it is never too late to save, right?

  1. We love, love, LOVE Edinburgh! Definitely visit again.

    Six years ago, we rented an apartment (I forgot the name, but it was next to a brewery). The apartment was very affordable then, but it has doubled now.

  3. Hi Claire, yes will be nice, however I prefer Glasgow, not so cold. While Edinburgh is the capital city, Glasgow is largest with more excitement I believe.
    Must try the whisky, make you feel warm.
    While there take some time to travel south to the Lake District. Will be nice.

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
