Lithuanian Artist Ernest Zacharevic In Ipoh

During our long lunch hour this afternoon, Elin and I went to a number of places... from old town, we went to Ipoh Garden to do some banking, then to Kampong Simee to have laksa for lunch, then back to old town to catch some desserts and finally back to office around 2.30pm...
We were here initially.... but there was no parking so we left for Ipoh Garden.... 
Then we came back again to this place to look for a parking...
See how "Jam" the place is.....
But we managed to find one parking eventually.... phewww....
We were right outside the coffeeshop....
And there was a big crowd there...
I thought someone is "filming" initially....
People of all ages are so fascinated.... 
So... this is the reason for the crowd....
Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic!
Not wanting to be left out, Elin and I joined in .....
 He is obviously oblivious of the crowd... 
Fully concentrated.....
 That was about it, I suppose....
 A few more touch ups ...
 and he is ready to go....
That's it!   
Good Job Done!
The crowd has gone..... we went for our desserts...
Soon it was time for us to go too...
Back to Office!

  5. How nice to be able to catch him in action! I wonder whether he was commissioned to do the drawing or not. Nice photo of you standing beside the little girl.

  8. He was in Kuching some few months ago and he drew two orang utans, one swinging from a branch and another sitting in a wheelbarrow. He is such a good artist. This picture is almost like the one in Penang but this one is a girl instead of a boy.

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
