OAKS Horizon Apartment Hotel, Adelaide, Australia

THE FLIGHT FROM KL TO ADELAIDE TOOK MORE THAN SEVEN HOURS and we reached Adelaide around 8am *time difference is 1 1/2 hours later in Adelaide*...  and reached our Oaks Horizon Hotel/Apartment before our appointed check-in time.  Since our apartment was not ready yet, we "parked" our luggage there and went for our breakfast in Rundermall area....  and so what did we end up eating???
Yes, Dim Sum!!
Right in the center of Adelaide shopping area!
Suits me REALLLL FINE!! 
Hongkong Dim Sum... not Malaysian.... so they are a bit different....
Ordered a bit of this and that.....
I left out the Giant Beef Balls!
Curry noodles opened by a Malaysian ex-lecturer, so I heard....
Not bad, I like it cos it is not spicy.....and lots of fillings...chunks of chicken...
I think it cost around $8Aud...
Self-service...
Walked and rested a bit after our meal.....
  Famous landmark at Runder Mall...
Soon... it was time to check in... at last..... 
 Our rented apartment view from the main door....
From the balcony door...
Master bedroom....
Attached bathroom...
This is for me and my girl....
With attached bathroom too....
 View from the highest floor...
From the 17th Floor view, Adelaide Conventre Center is just opposite...
Only setback about the apartment is this....
NO WIFI!
The only thing to "capture" the internet is to sit near the balcony each day....
Thanks to ACC, we managed to stay connected!!

  5. Aiyor!!!! Go all the way there to eat stuff we can get back home! Ah well!! As long as they're good - usually at these ang moh countries, they have these to "phian ang moh", bluff one only, nothing like the real thing and expensive (ah well...nothing is cheap there - best to buy raw food, cook in apartment, cheaper) and HUGE servings...but what you had looked ok, not that big at all.

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
