Shopping For Dresses

Due to my fractured leg, most of the time I would like to rest my leg and the only way is to lie down on the bed and relax.  Watching television is my pass time now and I was engrossed in a reality show a moment ago.  The show was about a bride-to-be who was so stressed up about what she was going to wear for her wedding and to add more woes, she has five bridesmaids to stress over as well.  The show began by showing her anguish face, an unhappy one there and another lady who was trying to pacify her.  Then the next scene, they were in a wedding boutique and showing off the prices of all the dresses for the wedding.  When the bride saw the prices of some dresses, she has an unbelievable look on her face, it was $279 for a very simple dress.  Well, no wonder.... For a simple dress, that price is overwhelming...
 Well, nowadays one can always search online for any party dresses or gowns.  I have checked in to a few websites, they do offer cheap and nice dresses for special occasions.  It is not really necessary to spend a "bomb" on a gown and then after that, kept away in the cupboard for years.  As for wedding or bridesmaid dresses, they are quite affordable too, not only that, they look exquisite!  At least spending moderately within our limits will not leave us "heartbroken" even if we wear it for one or two times.  December month is coming, weddings are normally held during this month.  I have not received any kind of invitation yet and if I do, I might end up buying one or two jecicadress myself!  :)

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....

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
