The Peeing Boy Manneken Pis Brussels Belgium

I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE FAMOUS PEEING BOY IN BRUSSELS until I was there and everyone seems to be crowding around to take a picture of this peeing kid.
Aaron managed to take a picture of this Manneken Pis aka The Peeing Boy...
There are a few legends arising from how this statue came about...
I googled about it a moment ago to "quench" my curiosity...
Cos every corner I went, this icon seems to be  here and there...
In front of the waffles shop....
And in the waffle shops....
Must have one for the album with the Peeing Boy!
Oh yes, talking about waffles, one must not leave Brussels without tasting them!
At first we thought it cost only 1euro...
And many to choose from..... the toppings, I mean....
Just look at the salesperson... I didn't realize it until I saw this picture...
At my sitting position, I could only EYE for the toppings!
Yes, the waffle cost 1 euro BUT without the toppings....
We ordered the famous Belgian choc and it comes to around 3 euro.....
After finishing one, we went to another shop.....
We just couldn't get enough....
Choose our toppings again....
Aaron again chose chocolate!!
Hot waffle with lots of chocolate and cream!
This one cost 5 euro if I am not mistaken....
I guess he must be having a hard time choosing what he wants... hahahaaa...
I would too, if I were to choose!
Ok, you eat first, Aaron!
Something triggered off our smiles.....
Not sure what... must be something to do with the waffle!
Yes, just look at the tourists....
There was some kind of a festive procession going on....
And We are so happy to be part of the crowd... 
We and Our Waffles!

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

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
