Working Assignments In Tapah And Teluk Intan

A few of us started out our journey to the smaller districts again this morning, this time to Tapah, a forty five minutes drive from Ipoh.  From the highway, we detoured into the district and had our breakfast at a famous stall here.
Lots of varieties being displayed at such an early hour... 
 
 Famous for this... such a Giant Kuali...
Young banana shoots with beef curry... 
First time eating this with Roti Canai...
It has been a long time since I last taken this Roti Canai...
Unhealthy, no doubt.... but so nice that I couldn't resist it this morning...
Passed through the town and soon we reached the district office...
Spent some hours there working.... and soon it was lunch time...
I took a bit of rice with ginger fried chicken, fish and a piece of spicy brinjal....
Can see something peculiar here?
How come we were holding hands???
Well, I guess this is called teamwork...
hahahaa....
After lunch, we proceeded another forty five minutes to Teluk Intan.... 
Passed through some nice padi fields....
Teluk Intan District.... 
Another beautiful landscape being maintained here......
Active Koi-s swimming here and there....
Soothing for the eyes when work is a pressure.... 
I wouldn't mind working here....
The greens are soothing to the eyes...

Another few hours of work and soon it was time to leave....
Going back to Ipoh took one and half hours drive....
Had a real nice snooze during the journey.... 
And reached home around 6.30pm.... 
Pheww.... What a Long Day.....

  11. Batang pisang? The banana tree trunk or what? Sounds kind of obscene, if you ask me. Hehehehehe!!!! Maybe they mean the hati pisang - the flower, I think, that is.

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
