Affordable Stay At Pension Alpha Hotel In Frankfurt

WE STAYED IN A MODEST HOTEL CALLED PENSION ALPHA... It is just five minutes walk from the train station, very convenient for us to move about especially we have to take the tram to visit the city.   At first we didn't notice much of the name but after we checked in, we know why it is called Pension Alpha! 

Let me talk about the hotel, I highly recommend this cos it fits my disability in the room.  Most important is the toilet... There is a slab in the bathroom which I could sit on when I shower and the toilet is near to the sink, It is big enough to put a plastic chair near the sink to do my cleaning... Phew... I was so relieved for I was longing for a good shower!!  
As for the room, there are three beds near to each other... I like... We can have a good bonding before we call it a night....
We stayed three nights here... £50 for each of us which is quite reasonable....
Only setback is I have to hop down six steps to the lift each time we go out...
No complaints about that as long as I can hold on to someone's shoulder.... 😀
Since we stay near to the train station, we had our dinner there on the first night...
So many outlets and much to choose from...
But of course, we chose this... Our first Pork Knuckle in Germany... 
And my friend could not resist the belly as well.... 
With another plate of large potato fries and hot drinks, we were completely satisfied....
After dinner, we had a short stroll around the vicinity....
It was already dark around 6pm... Day is short....
How Hauptbahnhof looks by night.....
After a short stroll, we called it a night....
Wanted to be fully energised and recharged the next day to go downtown.....

As for the hotel, we guessed that it is manned by a few pensioners cos those on duty are all elderly men... Only one of them speak simple English...at first they seem unsmiling but after greeting them whenever we go in and out, they are much friendlier and generous with their smiles.... Well... Cute!!

  11. Good choice of hotel when it is so near the station.
    I would do the same when I visit Japan every year otherwise it would be crazy to walk for miles.
    Their huge pork knuckles look very well done and crispy!

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
