Rundle Street East In Adelaide

AS THIS IS A RELAXING AND LEISURE GETAWAY, we did not plan anything in advance.  I really don't mind if I just laze around in the apartment or going out for short walks around the vicinity, it really suits me real fine!  NO more waking up calls at 6am in the morning and dragging my legs up to the hotel room in the late evening like those tour groups which I have experienced those days.  Thank goodness I was younger then.... and now, I prefer to go for these free and easy trips... no more time commitments and rushing from one place to another.....

We slept early the night before, replenishing the "lack of sleep" we lost the previous night before and we woke up fully refreshed and ready to start off our second day in Adelaide.  After our hearty breakfast in the apartment, we set out to Rundle Street again, so much to "look and see"... well, with over 1000 retail stores and services, it seems to be a never-ending walk for us...  I really don't mind taking our own time walking leisurely, the weather was simply fabulous.... cooling and yet not windy... very nice!
Before we set out, here I am in front of the apartment hotel...
Oh, I think I was not the only one there.... 
Obviously someone was waving from behind.... 
No sweater on the second day... 
Weather was around 16 to 22 degrees as we set out.... 
From our hotel to Rundle Street, it was just a five to seven minutes walk....
Oh ... er... unless we stopped every now and then to take pictures, it is again a different story...
The railway station is a short distant away from our place....
Along the subway... I mean pathway...
and soon we reached the intersection leading to Rundle Street pedestrian walk...
It was more crowded on Tuesday than the previous day....
Leisure walk was what we did and enjoyed, no time constraint...
Another musician here on the streets...

This reminded me of Ipoh... 
But this is Rundle Street Coffee Central...
And me at 127, Rundle Mall....
Someone is getting ready to shop!
While it was fun to shop and relax.....
We wasted no time busy connecting to the outside  world such as Malaysia!
Cyber Cafe on the Streets!

  1. Ooooo...I loved those buskers overseas. Some of them that I saw were really very very good...and of course, I would give them a bit for their effort. I loved browsing around the shops there too, just browsed, not buy...everything there was way too expensive, couldn't afford. Would just spend on food, eat the stuff they had there - not cheap either, but no choice.

  6. What an awesome walk! You had lots of willpower to avoid the coffee stall. Now that you are retired, you are what we call "a lady of leisure".

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

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

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
