Many Thanks To My Colleagues!

I agree with my ex-colleague.. she mentioned that working days passed extremely fast as her retirement drew nearer and nearer... that was one year ago. True enough, her statement is very true. My working days indeed passed by very fast too... For the past couple of weeks, I feel that time was not enough. So much to do and so little time! No such thing as boring in the office since 2015...

Many have asked me what I am going to do when I retire.... Frankly, I never thought of what I am going to do... no specific plans... no business to get involved in... practically nothing on my mind... I guess I am one of those "Come What May" type... 

Take it easy for the first couple of months... then when I settle down, then I will write how I feel to be a non-worker... at the moment, I feel I still have a busy life ahead... hahaha...

After packing all my stuff this afternoon, I felt the need to take some pictures with some of my colleagues... just in case when I grow old and cannot remember much, this post will come in very "handy!"
My colleague of many years... 
I remember the first day I reported to this department 11 years ago, she was the first one to approach me and made me feel "right at home."  Her friendliness I shall never forget...
Thank you for being such a good friend mate to me, Ila!
Hope you will achieve your goals soon....
All the Best to you!!
Another Sweetie... Fa... E... 
My "neighbour" and partner-in-crime...

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
