MM2H - Making My Second Home

On the forth day, after our breakfast/brunch at my sibling's place in Sg. Buloh, we packed up again to continue on with our journey down south.  Need to stuff up our stomachs, expecting our drive to be a very LONG one since it was a Sunday....
 Bought-from-Ipoh dry wanton noodles....
And prepared by my sister-in-law...
Stuffed us up before we continued on with our trip...
 Eating up the leftovers as well... 
And soon we were on our way.... 
Our car stuffed to the fullest again!
And it was a slow drive to Johor...
Some drivers were holding up the traffic on the highway...
Cos they slowed down to have a good view on the few car accidents along the way....
As usual.. this is kind of expected...
After a few long hours, we finally reached our destination!
So good to be Home at last....
Great to be Home ...
A Different Place....
But still a Home...
A Home where our hearts are...

  1. I didn't know your siblings live in Sg Buloh. I always thought you sneaked to Small Kucing's house. LOL
    The traffic jams seemed lesser this year with the Waze being the great help to most drivers now.

    Wishing you and family a very Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year!

  12. Huh? I didn't see this coming! You moving in with your sons after retiring? I think you will be fine in terms of food, JB quite similar with KL/Ipoh.. If you love wantan mee, you can try Ah Piaw Wantan Mee near KSL mall, although they only open from 10PM - 10AM XD

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

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
