Our First Dinner At Uncle Pou Wok, Johor

By the time we reached Johor, it was almost dinner time!  We quickly unloaded all our stuff in the living hall and set out to fill our hungry tummies!  As my son drove, he showed me all the shops that serve food during the daytime... since they are working during the day, I need to know how to get food for my girl and I... both of us will be "stranded" if we do not know how to drive around the vicinity....  hahahaa...

Back to our dinner, we were taken to this shop here called Uncle Pou Wok!  What a cute name...
The crowd was already there when we reached....
Food here must be Good just by looking at the occupied tables....
Uncle Pou Wok... (Repair Kuali) or does it have a different meaning in Mandarin?
Most of the tables were fully occupied...
This noodles came within five minutes after we ordered...
We were wondering why the fast service....
Seems that this was not our order... but then too late... we already "emptied" it within minutes!
The noodles were very tasty... 
Lots of lard and fragrant sambal to go with it!
Soon the steamed chicken followed suit...
Young "Siew Bak Choy"
And this is their signature dish....
Fish Soup with Yam and other varieties...

 As usual, the camera gets to take everything in.....
Including us humans....
And when everything is already taken.... finally...................
Let's start!!

  2. Love the steamboat!!! I like!!! And the Hokkien mee too. The yellow colour of the steamed chicken - is that natural? Corn-fed chicken and hence this colour?

  4. Their steamed chicken and fish Steamboat are very good. However, I don't like their attitude in one of their outlets and never patronize since then.

  10. I not trying to say sibling love is not good but sometimes it may bring negative effect. By looking at the second photo, if people don't know your family, people may think that your daughter got BF already. Then she will lose a lot of opportunities ( I guess she not lack of opportunity). My ex-female colleague told me about this logic.

  11. The food is so delicious looking and that's my type of choices! I always enjoy looking at your kids in the photos. They appear like your siblings and friends instead which is very good! They get older but you get younger pula. Muahahaha

    It is so hard to find happy families nowadays. Well done mama!

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
