Souvenirs And Marketing In Victoria Market

So much to buy but we didn't actually bought a lot as yet.  We always ended up buying souvenirs that we don't use and giving out to our family and friends.  But old habits die hard... ladies are ladies.. we still want to grab stuff we find fascinating and cheap, right?  Shopping is endless for us... more pictures here...
Ok, what shall we buy?
Doing some bargaining... hahaha...
But most stalls have fixed prices...
Most of the stalls have the same style and designs..
Should I get these towels.... er... I guess no need ler... right?
Someone was caught in a bored mood!  Oh my!!  I didn't know that till I saw these pictures... 
He is such a "NICE BOY!"  LOL....
The shopping continues....
My girl ended up with a pink cap only $3... 
And finally in the vegetable and fruits section.... 
Need to buy back some for our lunch.... 
Our first apartment cooked meal 
Here is our menu for the day....
Love these fresh scalloops... $10 here...
So sweet.. just stir fry them and we get their sweet juice... 
Slowly does it.....
We ended up cooking spaghetti with ham and bacon... fresh scallops and lightly pan fried salmon!
Got to do this again before we leave.....

    1. Ya...going overseas, if you buy food and cook your own, it is a lot cheaper than eating outside...and nicer too. I think their salaries too high...so the cost is charged to the customers in the prices of the food.

    2. Yeah, you had a point there... normal meal is around $10 so might as well cook some nice meals with that kind of money... but most meals taken out too.. wanna try the western food..

  9. Was about to ask yesterday did you buy some food from the market to cook in your apartment, and today, saw your post liao cooking in the apartment, yay! Oh yes, agree with you "lui yan chin yung yi chan" (ladies money easy to get).. Haha.. Almost anything also we can buy.. Drop me anywhere, I can buy anything although I don't plan to buy anything.. Your home-cooked lunch looks good, I like. But I prefer white sauce to bolognaise.. The next time maybe can get your kids to do carbonarra cream sauce.. Can't wait!

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...
