Third Day CNY In Sg Buloh

I had never traveled out of town before during CNY but this year is quite different. This is the first year that my mom is not around to celebrate CNY with the family. Without her during this festive time, the feeling is just not the same anymore. Something is still missing and it looks like we siblings have to fend to our own programs and plans. It will take time to get used not having her during festive seasons from now on.

For the first time in history this year, we did something different.  We decided to go to KL to visit my sibling and together with my sister, we loaded all our "goodies" and stuffed our cars with a bit of everything, so much so... my car was full to the brim!
The goodies and the frozen food were "seated" in the middle....
Even the "Hushie" need to stand in the middle with our favourite snacks beneath his bottom!
Thank goodness Hushie does not "f**t"  hahahaaa...
And off we went to Sg. Buloh...
A two hours drive...
 A bonding time in the kitchen.... 
"Slaughtering"....
Stewed Duck!
Next came the yellow skin meat....
Woo Soe Kai....
My SIL's specialty... 
Tom Yam Spaghetti!
Someone is really interested!
This is our favourites!
Ju Hoo Char... wrapped with lettuce...
A Sitiawan Dish....
So appetizing that it was finished up very fast!
And lastly and not least.... 
Seafood varieties topped with abalones....
 As usual....
 Soon it is "walloping time!"
Free style....

  5. This looks so good! Your mom would love it that you are getting on with life and all together on the holiday. You will always miss her, as I do mine. And holidays are the worst. But she is walking on streets of gold now!

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
