Greek Community Festival Along Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

After our heavy meal, we set out again and before we do each time, my young tour guides will "consult" the map for directions first... .
                          Checking out where to go... north or south... east or west.... 
Great, eh... I don't have to voice out anything... I just sing...
"I will follow you... follow you wherever you may go..."

Then we passed by the State Library again... 
Some Koreans doing some K-Pop dance and asking us to stop for a few minutes to see them... 
People happily obliged to see them perform one dance... 
and then we set off again... 
Passed by a few malls... 
Lots of Asians in sight...
Going up some malls to look-see... 
But nothing much that interests us... 
Back on the streets again...
At the traffic light while waiting for it to turn green... 
Ended up walking past Chinatown... 
Nothing much to buy here.. just look see only... 
And of course, taking pictures... 
Really different from the Chinatown in San Francisco... 
Few more blocks and we were amazed to see a big crowd here!
Something Greek was going on!
Looks like we were in the midst of a Greek festival.... 
Greek food for sale... but we didn't get any...
Looks like sweetened doughnuts...
Walking along to see what else in store... 
Yes, she saw something really TALL!
Interesting!
Nice to feel the festive atmosphere coincidentally.... 
And we experienced a Greek dance performed by two handsome guys!
Some hair raising thrill rides too....
Everyone seems to be having fun!
I certainly did!
                                    We felt we were part of the Greek community too.. LOL...

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
