Highly Recommended Sea Life Aquarium, Melbourne


For the three days tour we joined, we were entitled to choose one attraction in the city and were given free passes to the one we chose. My kids decided to choose the Sealife Aquarium which was within walking distance from our apartment. The walking distance took us to Southgate, a half hour walk from our place.
Here we are just opposite Southgate and just outside the Sealife Aquarium
It was a long walk that day... coming by here to relax before goingin.... 
After getting our free passes, we loitered inside...
and all of us were given an opportunity to touch these...
Star Fish... aka Patrick in Spongebob!  LOL...
I didn't touch it, (geli) but my kids certainly di...
But I am not scared of this though.... Crocs is branded!  LOL...
My son had my courage... ahemmm.... just screamed and then quickly go away.... LOL...
The amazing stingray...just looming above us with a smile on its face... back?

Beautiful creations....



It was feeding time.... what a nice coincidence...
We were saying... "next time can just come to here to watch penguins!"
Even the King Penguin is here... heads up high...
There's a baby Penguin beneath... protecting from other penguins...
I think we spent over an hour here... just watching them.....
Before we left, a picture to remember....
I would recommend Sealife Aquarium... 
It is indeed worth visiting....

  3. Look sort of like Underwater World in Langkawi. If it is not free, I think the entrance fees will cost a bomb. Nice place.

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...
