New Shoes For Me, New Bags For You

Nowadays I never do much shopping except for groceries... shopping in this sense means buying something "vain" for myself... hahahaa... I was thinking that since I am going to retire in another six months time, I do not need working clothes anymore.  My cupboard is full of them and it is such a waste to buy some more and hang them there.  If I am not careful, the metal bar in the cupboard will go "sengat" and fall due to overloading...
 
 I was sitting here waiting for my friend who was trying some sports shoes....
Nothing here interest me actually.....
But when it comes to shoes, I just couldn't resist buying one pair...
(Well, at least my shoe cupboard still has space!)

Since I am on shopping subject, here are two new bags given by my colleague...
 



She bought these two bags from Beijing...
New ones ... never been used before...
But she gave them to me when she found out that they are made from "pig skin"
It is such a waste if I just chuck them away in my store room...
If anyone like these, please let me know...

  5. Hello darling! I'm still awake.. Oh yeah I know wat u mean.. Too many clothes hanging there can make that metal bar drop anytime.. My wardrobe is not built in, so it can get kinda shaky too sometimes.. Those nice expensive bags could make a nice Christmas exchange gift if you do not have anyone to give to..

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....

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

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
