Christmas Gifts

Christmas is around the corner but I have not done any shopping as yet. Even the Christmas tree is not up, it is still lying in the store room. My family have other plans for Christmas, hope it will be a wonderful affair. (Please grant me annual leave.... )

 Yesterday I received a phone call from Pos Laju, he asked me where I was....  he has a parcel for me, I told him to deliver it to my office, he said he would.  Waited till 5pm, he didn't come, so I called him again, he said he would come to my house again at 5.30pm.  I waited till 6pm, he didn't come, I left for my dinner.  Half way through dinner, he called me saying he was in my house!  Oh dear... then I suggested that he wait for me in his office since I was around that area.  At around 7pm, I went to his office and he was there waiting for me... LOL... What a Wild Goose Chase... but at least I got the parcel... finally.....
Just For Me... Thank you, dears!
Elin and I received these Butterscotch Caramel and some TV snacks!
And I can't wait to try the caramel... haven't taste this before... 
Must go get a loaf of bread tomorrow!  LOL...

Then this morning I had a very fruitful breakfast with another blogger friend...(is there such a word?)
One of my favourite stalls in First Garden... 
This lasted me till dinner! 
I received this bag of pressies from her....
Most of all, I am so surprised to see this Christmas Money Box!
"MERRY CHRISTMAS CLAIRE"
What a wonderful gift!
Thank you for the yummy breakfast and gifts!

  4. Cute ornament! The food looks delicious, too! What kind of soup is that? I'll have to try it. It looks amazing!

    Good luck with finishing everything for Christmas. I haven't started decorating yet either. My tree never goes up until Christmas Eve lol. I need to finish a bit of Christmas shopping too. All my daughter wants is a pair of snooki slippers for Christmas so I guess I should go and order them soon 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

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
