My Pool Lessons At The Resort

It was really a relaxing holiday for my family... too bad it was a bit too short, a three days vacation is definitely too short when everyone is enjoying themselves tremendously.  Leaving the work pressure in the office, never need to do housework, no kids to chase after and make sure they are fed properly... phewwww...To me, a real Vacation means all food and play with your love ones, never having to think of anything else... this is what I call bliss... 

Everyone seems to be having a good time and that includes the younger generation as well... I never know Andy can play pool so well.... Now I am wondering whether I paid his college fees and pool tuition fees as well or not.... hmmmm....  He seems to know this game very well....I rather not ask....  benefit of the doubt....

So here we are...learning some tips from him....

Lesson in progress..... 
Demonstration going on.... 
 This is the way how to do it.....
 Let me try..... where shall I put my hand/hands?
 The old learning from the young...
 Yehhh... I think the ball went in!  hahahaa....
 Come, let's have a real game!
I don't mind coming back to this "resort" every year!
Must book early to avoid disappointment.... LOL.......

  9. Haha Claire, you write this in such a funny way - I don't think you paid his pool tuition fees. He is smart so learn it on his own without needing to pay pool tuition fees.

  11. yeah, pool is fun, i love playing.. but only when everyone is about the same level and still learning.. not fun when you are playing with an expert who can get all balls into the hole in just one shot, leaving you to sit aside only watching, hahahaha!! and vice versa.. :)

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
