Friendship And Food Knows No Bounds

SINCE IT IS SORT OF "CONFINEMENT" PERIOD FOR ME, I was thinking of the confinement food that I used to eat during those yesteryears... hahahaaa...  

When my friends called me to say they were coming for lunch, it was no surprise to them when I mentioned that I was yearning for some ginger wine chicken!  And they readily agreed to wherever I want to eat.... so nice of them to come pick me up, patiently waiting and helping me to lock up the door and hopping to the car with my faithful walker.... and then we set out for the confinement food...

Till today, I do not know the name of the shop, it is just No. 2 to us.....
It is a corner house along the main road in Ipoh Garden....
And every lunch hour, there are cars just parked outside the house..... 
Quite popular even among the young adults.....
My friends ordered pineapple juice.... 
Vinegar pig trotters with an egg...
This portion is for one person and each dish came with a big plate of brown rice...
And a piping hot ginger wine chicken with black fungus...
I could eat and drink the whole bowl by myself if I were really under confinement..
But since I am not, I dare not drink it all...
Don't want to risk having sore throat the next day!
With so much meat, a plate of greens is best to go with our meal.....
Thank you for the "confinement" lunch, dears...
And Thank you for coming to visit me time after time
Thank you for helping me with my chores and hops too!
I hope our food adventure will start to begin.... again....
Food and friendship know no bounds, I guess!

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
