From Brussels Back To Amsterdam

FROM BRUSSELS, THE TRIO TOOK ANOTHER ONE HOUR PLUS TRAIN RIDE TO OUR LAST STOP FOR THE TRIP... AMSTERDAM!  We spent two nights here near the city to have a look around before our Europe trip comes to an end.....
We stayed near to the Skinny Bridge... Yes, it is called skinny...
Maybe no cars but only pedestrians and bicycles can cross over....
Amsterdam is full of canals... Never lack of water....
Aaron suggested we walked all the way to the center of the city.....
It was really a long walk... Half hour or more.....
Along the way, we stopped to take pictures...
It was pretty cold in Amsterdam... but we sat at the sidewalk to have pur lunch....
The Memorial....
Along the way.... Canals after canals...
Fascinated by the houses slanting to the right....
Must be due to Aaron's muscles....after all, he is my source of strength in times like this....

Latest updates:  Thank you for your concerns, some of you have sent me messages asking me where I am now...Yes, very shocked and saddened by the tragedy in Paris... And the fact that we were there just two weeks ago, it was so overwhelming... Sad for the victims and at the same time, so thankful that we had left... At this time of posting, I am already home....

  1. Lots of canals, there's this story of the boy who stuck his finger in the dyke. There's a statue of him somewhere, maybe not in Amsterdam, not sure.

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
