Third Round Of Pre-Retirement Gathering

This afternoon Elin and I were treated to a scrumptious lunch in Loon Wah Restaurant in Pasir Puteh. Both of us had never been there so anything new is interesting!   But this post will not be about the food and more food... I feel that it would be more meaningful to put in more humans than food cos this is all about us... colleagues and soon to be ex-colleagues...

I would like to remember this occasion and my lovely gang...
My beautiful colleagues...
Regardless of age... we still share the same interest here... 
Don't forget me...! 
  Different standing positions...
Love these pictures... 
My friend since 1980ssssss.... 
 
Both of us are retiring same month....
I think I gonna shed a tear.....
After this month... 
we will not have each other to go out daily anymore...
No intercom chats during office time....
No more breakies and lunchies daily....
No more going home together too...
Separation comes after retirement....
Our days will be changed from next month on...
Thank you for the Happy Years we had...
Happy Retirement to Both of Us!
Stay Cheerful Friend!!

  2. Once retired, a new chapter of your life starts. You will be doing new things and meeting new friends. But remember your old friends will be here waiting for you. Do stay connected.

  13. Elin also retiring? I know three ladies, ex-colleagues, who would meet every morning to go for breakfast and sit and chat and two groups of teachers who would meet, one once a week and the other once a month to do the same, big groups. Very nice way to keep in touch and stay active. You and Elin can do the same...and get some friends whoi have retired to join you two as well. The joy and fun would not have to end here.

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

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... 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
