All For The Love Of A Girl

IF NOT FOR YOU, I wouldn't go there at all..... I am not a patient lady, my friends will vouch for that, seriously!  If I could help it, I really turn down going to crowded places, queue up, pay more than it is worth, to get some "Famous" snacks in Ipoh.  I really don't like to Q...... But for the sake of a girl, not any ordinary girl but my special girl, I waited for nearly 45 minutes just to get a few packets of these precious snackies!

When I reached the shop called Ming Yue in Pasir Pinji around 12.30pm, the crowd was like this.....
In front of me, there were at least 10 people?
Never mind, I passed my time playing with my handphone...
For these freshly baked cookies, one do not need to queue up... 

But for these special ones below, our patience is being tested!
After waiting for more than half hour, it was my turn liow....
But to my great disappointment, the cookies were "Finished!"
Sigh...
 I was told to wait for another fifteen minutes for another batch!
True enough, this new batch came out after some long minutes....
Initially I wanted to get only 4 packets weighing 300 grams each..
But since I waited so long and being so Kiasu, 
I ended up buying 6 packets instead.....
For what, I also don't know!
I was thinking... 
Waited so long and only 4 packets??? 
But now come to think of it.....
Who is losing? 
Of course the buyer such as Yours Truly....
I will continue singing...
All For The Love Of A Girl.....

  3. Aiyor!!!! Queued for so long, should buy more lah, then more worthwhile. Nobody wants, can always send to me here. Hehehehehehe!!! I would not queue for anything either. I would just tell my girl to go and queue herself when she comes back. I am not so kind...but at least, these days, we can browse online on our phone while waiting. Would not feel the time go by.

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
