Mothers' Day Weekend In Penang, Pearl Of The Orient

Took a short trip to the Pearl Of The Orient with my family yesterday.  Started off the journey around 10am and reached Penang around noon.  The bridge was not jammed but the road leading to Green Lane was kind of hectic.
 
Smooth traffic....
Reached the hotel around 2pm after taking our lunch in Ah Ling's fried koay teow in Datuk Kramat Road.  At the lobby, I met up with one of FB friends was waiting at the lobby... Nice of him to drop by to meet up for a short while... Thanks for coming by, AL...
After he left, we adjourned for Laksa... this is the BEST I have tasted so far in Penang...
Opposite Peng Hwa School at Gottlieb Road... "BESTEST"... LOL...
From our hotel room at 12th floor... nice scenery...
Overlooking a small portion of the sea...
Mountains at the left side....
Then we rested for awhile before going for our dinner at 6.30pm...
 Lok-Lok to start off our dinner in the evening....
Then we adjourned to Kimberley Street for Koay Teow Th'ng
Not really a fan of this... but ate a bit to try....
Some desserts as usual....
Ended up in Paragon Gurney to digest.....
Morning buffet breakfast..... took a bit.. such as 2 half boiled eggs.... 
And a bowl of porridge....
And ended up eating again at New World Park.....
Dropped by at Straits Quay.... and ended up doing some shopping there...
Well, that is about all....
A brief summary of our one night stay in Penang...,
Happy Mother's Day!!

  13. Wah, still gallivanting ahh? Jealous leh.. Yesterday was just another ordinary day for me, stayed home only.. Boring hor? But we went out for a nice dinner on Saturday though.. But with two babies around, we couldn't enjoy very much, had to swallow the food and shout & nag like a crazy old hag the whole evening.. Even the waitresses pitied us and kept reminding me "Your baby's leg is out of the hi-chair".. Gawd..
    OMG, I love everything you ate.. I love that laksa, but will usually omit the "har kou".. Smelly leh, teehee.. And yep, kuey teow thn'g, can't miss that in Penang, will usually order 2 bowls.. One with just the "liew" only, slurrrpp...

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...
