Along Historical Streets Of Malacca

AFTER our heavy lunch in Kocik Kitche, we took a walk around the vicinity despite the hot sun rays upon our poor heads.  We must sweat out our calories after our delicious Peranakan meal otherwise we we end up growing sideways again.... hahahaa.... 

Along the way, we took some pictures of the Heritage houses... we were simply impressed by them... they really take efforts to maintain the structures of these homes built during the Dutch and Portugese days....
Some residence for rent....
Even our friend is impressed.....
 The Blue Houses  (as I called them)
 Built in 1939
 Along the Jonker Street...
Yours truly cannot resist the hot from the pot Ondeh Ondeh...
The two houses side by side...
Landmark of Jonkers Street...
 
Never leave Malacca empty handed though....

  1. being the Historical City, sure gotta preserve those old buildings as much as they could lah.. unlike KL where anything aged must be demolished and replaced by modern skyscrapers huh?? haha.. I actually think Penang is also doing a good job in preserving the history too.. :)

    1. Yes, and now I hope Ipoh too is preserving the old buildings.. the structures are original, they just need a new coat of painting..

  2. I really admire the Heritage buildings in Malacca & Penang. Most of them are so well preserved. Along Jonker Street, there are some shops selling very nice pineapple tart. Love the ondeh ondeh.

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
