An End To My Europe Trip

OUR LAST DAY IN AMSTERDAM DIDN'T GO WASTED... We had the whole morning and afternoon to go sightseeing cos we only need to go to the airport at 3pm... We quickly set out to another direction, Aaron said we must visit his place before we leave.....
Crossed the Skinny Bridge and instead of turning right, we turned left to Amsterdam museum....
Again, it was not a short distance... but the scenery helps to soothe our walk....
Soothing to our eyes and resting our legs as we walked along....
And stopped at an Italian restaurant to satisfy our tummies....
We were the early birds....
My friend ordered stew rabbit meat....
Aaron's pasta something....
And my free range chicken with Italian spices and herbs....
And our hot fresh mint leaves tea....
Soon we set out again and finally some minutes, we reached the museum....
But we didn't go in the museum this time... Just outside.....
Aaron said this is a Must-Visit place.....
No regrets coming here despite the long and cold walk....
Action.... 'she aint heavy, she's my mummy' 
Here 'I' Am!!
Just look at the crowd!!
Our last stop.... Amsterdam....
Our trip came to an end.....
My most challenging trip on wheels, one I will never forget....
Give Thanks in all circumstances....

  1. haha, yeah, must visit put the very last item in your itinerary, that's brilliant!!! I've heard of this "I amsterdam" and so glad you were there, now I can see the "real" thing with crazy tourists climbing all over, unlike the "lonely" one in photos~~ :D

  3. Very lovely scenery pictures. Your plate of whole range chicken with Italian spices and herbs looks very delicious. You finished it all by yourself? Museum building has a very beautiful design. You mean you go all the way and not enter the museum? Its funny seeing all those tourist climbing up the letterings. And lastly, you overcame the challenge of having to travel on wheels. Hurray!

  9. I did not expect that "I amsterdam" sign to be so crowded! Usually I see those travel bloggers' photos of this place to be so empty. How did they do that??

  11. Well done Claire! Achievement unlocked! I don't think there are many people who can claimed to have gone on a vacation on a wheelchair (those permanently challenged people not counted).

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
