My Memorable Toasts And Cheers!

There are many occasions where we drink to good health and happiness.  Every year I make it a point to get a few nice bottles of wine to keep in the house and come every occasion where the family gathers, I would bring out a bottle to commemorate the special event.  We love the cheers as we click our glasses and wishing everyone something good!

I remember a few special functions where families gather around the table for a reunion gathering.  This does not happen often because my siblings are living apart from one another.  We have our own families now that we are getting older and our kids are grown.  But we make it a point to have a family reunion at least once a year to gather for a nice wonderful dinner together.
This is one happy reunion that I had in Sacramento.  My mother prepared a very scrumptious dinner and invited a few close friends to come over for the gathering.  Just look the the table full of food, glorious food and our happy cheers to one another!
Let's drink to good health and peace on earth! 
When I was in Las Vegas, I tried my first cocktail offered by my brother-in-law, it is called Mathai.  He told me that I would love to drink this once I have tried it!  It is a fruity cocktail with a dash of rum, vodka, tequila etc etc.  Well, that was what I was told and true enough, I love it!
We ordered three glasses and coming to think of it now, I wish I could have a glass by my side! 
We ordered a few pieces of honey lemon chicken to go with the cocktail...
Well, that was my kind of celebration I have yearly...
Now that my kids have grown, they are welcomed to drink a bit here and there...
Anything taken moderately is good for our bodies, right?
 Cheers, everyone!  
Christmas is around the corner....
Let us wish one another Good Health and Happiness!

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
