Stuck At Nibong Tebal

Started on our journey up north this morning at around 11am... And the journey was smooth sailing until one km from Nibong Tebal... The one kilometer felt like ten kilometers, snail crawling at the highway.  From then to the toll, it took us an hour I guess... and we heard that one lorry overturned and  the highway from NB was closed... Every vehicle had to detour to Nibong Tebal and had to use the old trunk road ....
Crawling traffic.....
I was very hungry by the time we passed the toll and into the old trunk road in NB...
We had to stop here for lunch to prevent my tummy from growling further.... 
After all, it was pass 2pm already!
Any dish on the wall looks yummy to me!
And we ordered these.... Honey pai kwat wong.... No bones just meat.....
Sambal tapioca leaves with three prawns....
And their special lemongrass fish head soup which was so up to my standard... 
Hahhhaaaa....
And this "captain" is the one who recommended the dishes.... And served us as well...
Sat down to talk to us too... and the bill came to RM36 after much talking... Hahahaa....
After our lunch, we proceeded with our journey and reached Penang around 4pm! 
Phewwww......

  1. That was about double your usual time for you to reach Penang. But I think all the yummy dishes compensates for the delay. I would love to taste the lemon grass fish head soup!

  2. If got good company in the car, it is ok to be stuck in a traffic jam because can chit chat and won't be boring.

  3. That's the old trunk road? So so so so much nicer than our miserable so-called "highway".

  6. Sien, overturned lorry is the most frustrating one, it brings traffic to a standstill! Too bad it happened before the 2nd bridge, else you can use the 2nd bridge to enter the island..

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....

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

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
