Melbourne City Walk

After our three days of guided tour, we had another two days to relax before flying back from Melbourne to our home sweet home. Aaron suggested touring the Melbourne city again and our main transport is our two walking sticks, ie. OUR LEGS! This way we could be able to see more and taste more as well... LOL...
Taken in the morning and we were on the way to an Asian supermarket to buy some stuff...
We were told that Victoria Market closes every Wednesday but reopens during the evening....
We had Korean noodles with lots of vegetables for our simple lunch...
Anything Asian is "yummylicious" to me then!!
After our simple lunch, we set out... our walk took us to another side of the city...
One of the Big Five companies in Malaysia... KPMG
While we walked, we snapped...
My son was also busy with his own camera...
It was a cooling walk....
Along the high end shopping street...
Forgot the building names though...
Taking a rest... my lunch meal had digested by then...
Pretending to have game of chess before proceeding to our next destination...
The Sealife Aquarium....

  1. I loved the tours - the tourist guides were very witty, interesting and funny...not like our Malaysian ones. The city was just ok, didn't enjoy it much as there was a terrible heatwave when I was there (like a turkey roasting in an oven)...and the horrible swarm of flies...plus the rubbish collectors' strike. Not very nice memories of the place.

  2. Nice sightseeing and walking. I prefer light and easy holiday. Less stress but of course if you dont know anyone in a foreign country, guided tour is prefer. :)

    1. I like both... like guided during certain days and certain places and walking on our own on the other days... more relaxing this way..

  5. I don't mind walking in the surrounding area as one can take their sweet time sightseeing and at the same time a good exercise.

  11. So much fun and so much walking! I bet you all lost mighty weights with healthy exercises to whallop all the noodles. I also have same cravings for Asian food when I go overseas. I even bring along Cup Noodles, McD's chilly Sauces and Sambal Belacan!

    Hey, thanks a million for the surprise gift. I received it today and will use it on my office table.

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
