At IKEA Singapore On Saturday

On Saturday we entered into Singapore again, this time my son drove in. Since it is a weekend, there is no VEP charge... *oh, don't ask me what VEP is, I just repeat what I heard*  But of course, there would be other charges other than that, on both ways, going and coming out from Singapore.
There is normally no jam during weekends especially going in to Singapore... 
The currency rates might be one of the possibility that locals refrain from shopping in the Lion City...
Smooth traffic and soon we were in Singapore....
We spent a couple of hours in Jurong East and after that.....
We stopped by here to do some shopping at IKEA ....
But the main purpose again... is..... 
Food!
Surprised that they have pork knuckle there!
Couldn't resist... so we ordered one piece... 
So enormous portion... $13.90
Seafood rings....
Fried chicken wings at $7.50 for six...
And of course, this cannot be missed...
Andy ordered the large portion of 20 meatballs!
The bill of the above came to around $30 or so....
Not so sure.. I just wait to be served..
Like their environment, there were restaurant trash cabinets at every corner...
After all was done and eaten, we adjourned to another place....
 
We came here to drop a friend off....
And we started our way back.....
Oh... hang on there first....
Need to check the GPS... Google Map..... on the directions...
At the same time, check out which causeway is more "Free" from jams.....
Really .... the Apps are so helpful, right????

  2. VEP = Vehicle Entry Permit, the other charges are the toll charges for using the bridges.

    I have driven in Singapore a couple of times, it was quite unnerving, I drive cautiously and get bullied by Singaporean cars. They say if you are driving a Malaysian car, you need to be more aggresive to show the Singaporean cars that you are not an "outsider" car to avoid being bullied :/

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

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... 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
