Central Market China Town, Adelaide

ON THE FOURTH MORNING IN ADELAIDE, we took around twenty minutes walk to the Chinatown... for two purposes, firstly, to have our Dim Sum breakie and secondly to do some marketing for dinner in the evening... Eating out is not "cheap" at all so we need to balance out our costs...
And so here we are... right at the entrance of Chinatown!
And now to get some food.....
So much to look and see and choose....
Looking for the best dim sum in town.. 
hahahaa.. 
Just kidding... we really don't know which is the best... 
 We just settled for this one here....
And ... comfortably seated for a pose...  
Soon we were being served...
The atmosphere made us feel at home... 
Everything looks familiar...
Food and camera is the main "attraction"....
Again, this one caught my attention...
Giant Beef Balls!
 
And part of the Dim Sum we ordered....
After our tummies were fully fed, we did our marketing here...
Central Market, Adelaide...
Where all kinds of souvenirs are sold..
Fruits....
All types of nuts...
And me holding a bag of stuff.... 
before we made our way home again... 
Yes, it is truly Autumn in Adelaide....
We took a tram back this time to our place...
Only three stations stop and the tram is free of charge...

  10. Adelaide’s Chinatown has a lot of dimsum places to offer, and it has the variety that many of our guests enjoy. It is good that in the office, a number of the lady staff members enjoy dimsum and other types of Chinese food. If anyone can suggest more choices, it would be great to read some posts out here.

  11. There are lots of new things to see everywhere in Adelaide, but this is a good reminder not to take for granted places in your neighbourhood! Perhaps its time for us to go and explore places we have never really thought much about…

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
