Food Glutton

Chinese New Year is just a few days away. For the past one month, I have been busy running up and down like a mother hen! LOL... As a mother to three grown up kids, I have to start preparing my menu, what to cook for them, what to buy, what to bake.. Okay, I am exaggerating here a bit, I do not cook nor bake much, just a few dishes and bake some simple cookies, nothing to shout about much here.  But just by looking at the dishes below, they were prepared by my In-Laws, I really have to pay "tribute" to them.  As a daughter-in-law, I just have to go back and savour all the glorious food!!  How blessed I am, right?
Yes, my In-Laws are really great chefs!
That is why I love to do the "Washing-up!" after the glorious meal!
Loe Sang as the Appetizer and the Starter before the meal.. 

After the reunion meal, the desserts are next!  My sister-in-law loves baking cakes and each year she will prepare a few choices of cakes for us to savour!  Blueberry cheese cakes, carrot cakes, lemon cheesecake... and what else... hmmmmm....
Isn't she amazing!!
Now you know why I always look forward to Chinese New Year! LOL... 

However, after all being said and eaten, I need to be cautious about my own health from now on.  I am now getting younger, my metabolism is getting slower and if I eat too much and too fast, I might get indigestion or discomfort.  Well, prevention is better than cure so I better watch how much I eat this coming celebration.  By the way, I am keeping some Gaviscon in the house, well, you know, just in case... for heartburn and indigestion, it helps to relieve.... I wouldn't want to miss out all the glorious food, right?

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
