Wheeling From Paris To Brussels, Belgium

WE STAYED TWO NIGHTS IN PARIS, it was good enough and the next day after a good night's rest, we took our own sweet time to pack up... Took a cab to the train station and I like Aaron's arrangement of the time schedule.  Our departures from each country are at noon, so that we do not have to stress and get up too early in the morning...

Left for Brussels, Belgium and reached there in less than two hours, to my surprise... if not for this trip, I wouldn't know these two countries are actually quite near to each other...  Again, Aaron arranged for a B and B lodging and this time, the lady was waiting for us at the train station.  Then we followed her and I thought we were going to the car park... But no, I was wrong, our lodging is just five minutes walk from the train station!  Very convenient.... YES!

 And I like it here.. the apartment was bigger and neater than the Paris one...
But bigger also means I have to hop more actually.....
One bedroom to accommodate me and my friend...
Aaron has to sleep on the sofa bed in the living hall... 
The clean kitchen... we cooked only one meal here... 
 The bathroom with separate toilet...
Have to hop a bit further to the loo... 
The scenery from our highest 7th floor apartment...
Looks kind of quiet on a Saturday afternoon....
 After dumping all our bags, we walked back to the train station to have our lunch....
The train station is like a shopping mall... 
We settle for something Italian.... 
 Their pizzas are totally different from ours.... 
Just look at their cheesy fillings!!
Every piece looks good for Aaron!
As for me, I settle for roasted chicken anytime!
And of course.... a glass of chocolate mousse to complete the meal.....
I normally do not ask exactly how much our meal cost...
They are normally 20 Euro more or less... 
One cannot afford to be picky...
All I do is to sit and wait...

  2. That's a very nice apartment, very lovely. I like staying in serviced apartments overseas - can do own cooking, buy stuff from the wet market and supermarts.

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
