Trip To Penang For Food And Desserts

Last Saturday my girl and I set out on a clear sunny morning... we took a slow drive up north to Penang island for a two nights getaway, a day after I "unofficially" retired.  
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright ... bright....
Sun-Shiny day.
 
Mama started the engine rolling down the tunnel... 
till we reached the Panglima Bukit Gantang resthouse...
then the small girl took over the wheel... 
because mama knows the roads are "straighter" and easier to monitor....
let her have a "feel" of how it is on a highway..... 
but of course, mama's turn before reaching the toll... 
So hungry we were... we ended up going to Perak Road...
Taking yam rice at Canton shop...
Salted Vegetables soup with meaty balls and varieties....
Long time I didn't take salted vege soup..
Ordered a small bowl of pork knuckles, beancurd and one egg....
The bill came to around RM14...
 Next, we ended up in Prangin Mall.... 
At the Teochew Chendol Stall
In time to watch some "A-Go-Go" dancers in tune with some 1970s songs....
.... at the same time enjoying our bowl of cendol at the Teochew stall...
Creamy and Santan-ic as usual.....
Time to lose some calories after that.... 
We walked for a couple of hours doing some "window shopping"
before we proceeded to check in to our hotel at Tanjung Bungah...

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
