Eastern & Oriental Hotel In Penang

Andy went out to celebrate with his friends... he has not seen them for a long time and he sure wants to make full use of the time to catch up....So... where shall I go with Aaron?  We too wanted to celebrate in our own way!  hahahaa.... 

Not wanting to be left out, both of us made a reservation with E&O Hotel at Lebuh Farquhar, Penang... Both of us had never been there and this was quite exciting for us... We reached the hotel around 7pm and before we adjourned to the Sarkies Corner for buffet, we walked around the vicinity of the hotel.....
From the parking lot on the second floor, it looks so "caribbean".....
Then the real thing.....
We walked for some distance .... 
(To lose some calories!)
I'm glad I was wearing something "loose" that evening... 
hahahaa....
The British Colonial Style....
I like this jetty......
I wonder how much is per room per night.....
This was taken when we left the buffet corner to take a "breather"....
Very Victorian styled....
Wow... we took many pictures actually.....
Cos we don't know when we would be back here again!
Beautiful ambience...
 Love this sight during the twilight.....

  2. You made the right choice for your celebration. Very romantic place. Can imagine the lovebirds in the love storybooks holding hands....walking along the beach and the garden...... under the moonlit sky..... listening to the lapping of the waves........

  3. Nice hotel with beautiful scenery. Last pix, looks like it reaches out to the sea. Sure it's a nice buffet dinner with mother & son bonding time.

  4. The hotel's surroundings sure look beautiful. Can see you have a great time bonding with your elder son. Will the next post be about the food at the buffet dinner?

  5. The pictures of you and Aaron are my favorite. But next I love the black silhouettes of the palm trees with the pale blue background, so beautiful! We do not have palm trees, they will not grow in this climate. They are in Florida and California though.

  7. Hmm, I have never been there for dinner, but a few times for lunch buffet. Maybe go too many times, I don't feel it is nice anymore, I prefer Straights Quay nowadays, because of the boats :D

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
