Tropical Fruits And A Homecooked Meal Before Departure

Leaving Ipoh without enjoying durians is unheard of.... due to some recommendation from friends, some from FB to confirm this too, we came upon this special uncle with one leg.  He is well known for selling quality durians in Ipoh Garden...he sells at the pavement of one of the shops along the Shell Petrol station..
He doesn't have many durians... but I heard most of them are good taste!
Among durians, he also sells mangosteens and duku langsat..
The fruits are now in season...

My boys patiently awaiting for Uncle to choose the durians...
 
Uncle is now performing his task....
 While Andy is looking on.....
Uncle asked him nice or not each time he opens one... 

Soon all are opened and ready to be packed... 
We bought 4 for RM37.... cheap!
Before my boys left Ipoh, a homecooked meal was prepared ....
This is their special request dish....
With durians as desserts and a homecooked meal, 
I hope they find this homecoming trip a worthwhile trip!
Till we meet again... 
Not sure when but I hope it will be soon! :)

  4. Bet that was the best meal they had when they were home. Nothing can ever beat mum's cooking, that's the bottomline. Back to missing them again, eh? At least I get to see my girl once a week, not too bad.

  13. Hmmm, I wonder why u don't cook for your family when they go back home. My mum makes sure we have home cooked food every time we go home as to her, eating out is unhealthy and expensive. That is how she shows her love for us.. 😍

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
