Hill Trail Up Air Itam Dam, Penang

ANOTHER ACTIVITY TO LOSE CALORIES IN PENANG is to walk up and downhill.  Penang has a number of interesting parks and hills for one to keep fit and healthy.  Among them, I specifically like to go uphill at the Air Itam Dam, just next to the Kek Lok Si Temple.  Limited parking is available and the area is open to recreational use such as jogging, walking and cycling.

As for me, I am into slow walking as for now.... wanting to reduce my durian calories, I have to bear with the pain on my leg and walked a 3KM trail up and down the hill....
It was around 6pm when we began our walk.... 
 Some are into cycling.... 
And many are into walking.... brisk walks unlike mine....
 Yes, there are certain areas where I have to huff and puff uphill...... 
Coming downhill is also a problem for me..... 
I have to be extra careful that I don't slip.... 
 Along the way, we stopped to admire the land and water.... 
The Hills are Alive.... 
....with the sound of music... 
Mostly creatures' making music in the evening.... 
On and off, I stopped to have a "breather"....
Oh, at certain area, I met up with a family of monkeys...
I saw a group of them on the road... just be natural and walk on...
Don't hush them out of the way.... they might snarl....
 I think it took us almost an hour to reach the one 3KM round... 
Well, I know... I am pretty slow.... 
 If one is adventurous, it can lead to a 10Km walk and come down by the Balik Pulau way....
As for me, a 3Km is good enough for me.... 
Grateful for my Sketchers walking shoes... 
Soft and light... 
The scene on top of the reservoir.... 
And my exhausting look before the sun goes down... 
Wonder how many calories are burned in this walk...
Time to go for a good dinner....

  7. Hahaha, I know some who would occasionally go: someone drive a bunch to Air Itam and drop them for the hike, then drive to Balik Pulau to pick them back up. You can also hike to the Botanical Garden if you want to. Not me though, I won't do these things...

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...
