Activities Along Beach Street In Penang

During my weekend in Penang, we went to Church Street, I was told that they have some interesting activities along the Church Street in Georgetown every Sunday. Indeed there was when I reached around 11am on that beautiful sunny Sunday.  Some part of the roads were being blocked to make way for the pedestrians to walk freely and to take part in some activities.  Sort of a family day...Kids can cycle freely, there are bicycles for rent, two wheels, three wheels.... To my delight, it was indeed an eye opener for me and I would love to go there once again...
Church Street... mainly office buildings...
Colonial structures... 
Nice deco here.. our local buildings not bad, huh...
Fun and activities...
What's the name of the game?
Sweet voices filled the air... "Nobody, nobody but You.... "
Sounded like Korean singers....
T-shirts and souvenirs for sale....
This is something new to me...
Knives Massage, anyone???
 Looks like fun here too... 
I wouldn't mind having a ride in this too!
Family bonding day.... 
Ipoh should have one of these street activities too...
Standing in the midst of it all...
Must come by here again the next time...
Do some cycling exercise.... hmmm....

  2. Interesting. If only the weather here is like overseas, that would be really nice. In KK, Sabah, they have the tamu at Gaya Street on Sunday mornings. I love that too!

  3. i like this street lah.. i think only in Penang?? surely in KL there are rarely something like this, if there is then it's always indoor.. i like these activities "al fresco", it feels more active and sporting (just like you), agree??

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
