Must Eat Mussels In Brussels

WE WERE FAMISHED AFTER WALKING ALONG FEW BLOCKS OF LANES AND ALLEYS.... despite the creamy waffles in our tummies, it was time to call for a proper meal before we headed back to our homestay.

Oh, Aaron was telling us that we must not leave Brussels without tasting their fresh mussels!!  He definitely had done his homework well, I didn't know that at all... So on we walked and walked, we went in search of Mussels!!
nope, it was not along this alley....
They have all kinds of food here, from Italian to Mediterranean, middle-east and Spanish...
...but no mussels are seen....
And when we were almost giving up and stopped for a breather here, 
the word "Fresh Mussels" was right in front of us!
This sidewalk cafe was just directly opposite where we were seated....
Nice ambience....
My hungry look!
So....What shall we drink?
We ordered this... Aaron's suggestion..
Cheersss!!
As for the food.... 
These came first... I wonder if they are bottomless... but we never asked....
Chicken fillet with their special sauce.... (16 euro approx)
Yes, now I remember... the sauce is cooked with BEER!
MUSSELS!!  (22 euro approx)
AND they are so FRESH!!
 The mussels in one POT!
Thank goodness we didn't order a third plate.....
OK, one more picture before we dug into the FOOD!
The Mussels seems to be endless!
Their tomato and spices blended so well with the fresh mussels....
So.... how was the food?
This expression says it ALL..... !

  1. Not a fan of mussels but yes, I would eat - not bad with creamy cheesy sauce like what was in the chicken fillet. Looks good.

    2. The ones I ate not so good because there were sand or other things in the mussels, not washed properly but I ate from one of the eateries along the pedestrian walkways so maybe cheaper that's way but it was way back in 2003.

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
