Travel Plans

Christmas is around the corner, this is the best time of the year to do some traveling here and there. As for me, I am not going anywhere far yet this month but we will not be celebrating Christmas in our house this year. That is why I did not put up our Christmas tree this year, we will be visiting down south to visit my siblings and celebrating the festive season with them. I am really looking forward to seeing them again, it has been a long time since we last gathered together as one family.

As for my traveling plans, my kids and I have decided to visit Down Under next year.  Now is the time to "accumulate" some information, where, what, how and when.  LOL.... These brochures below were passed to me by my colleague who had just came back from Australia.  He just came back from Sydney with his wife, they had a wonderful time there and he has given me much details on where to stay, where to go, what to eat etc. etc.  Since I am going with my three kids, he suggested that we could rent a car to drive around Melbourne.  There are so many listed and reliable websites and one of them is the campervan hire from My Drive Holiday.  Yes, we are going for a free-and-easy trip, no group tours and waking up wee hours in the morning, we prefer to plan our own tours or joining some local tours when we reach there.  Nothing definite yet, we are still planning.... :)
Useful information... I hope by the time I go, I can remember what he had told me!  
hahahaa...
My first time to Sydney, that was many years ago.
Darling Harbour, if I am not mistaken....
Any changes after 30 years? LOL...
Queuing up to take a picture with Mr. Koala!
Well, it would be great to make another trip to Down Under...
Hopefully by next year...

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
