A Gift To Yours Truly

I love sitting at home if I am in Ipoh.  Of course I do go out for food and catching up with my friends on and off, but most times, I rather stay home to rest and relax.  My friends say I am like an "octopus" with endless legs, always seem to be traveling here and there but I am not really so.  If I am not in Ipoh, I am either at the north or south of Malaysia because those are the places where my kids are stationed at the moment.  They used to tease me, "Mom, in Malaysia, you have covered north, west and south already!"  Yes, only the east part of Malaysia I have not drive over yet, I mean as yet...

That is why I mentioned I love to sit at home when I am back in Ipoh.  Shopping is out of the question, no more cravings for new clothes or anything extravagant on my body.  No more unnecessities in the shopping malls if I could help it.  I spend my money on Food and my Travels, I always tell my friends.  When it comes to real shopping such as on birthday gifts, celebrations, anniversaries, there is a solution to getting gifts without the hassle of going out to walk endless stores to get what I want.  Recently I found one online store which offer what I want to get for myself, my family and friends.  In fact I have claimed one free mug from them during a promotion some time ago and since then, I am now thinking of getting a couple more gifts for my love ones and friends.  Shhhhhh... better not let them know otherwise it will not be a surprise anymore.  hahahahaa.... 

I always wanted to have my own customized mug for myself.  Before this, I have purchased a whole set of customized mugs for my brother's family, five of them in total.  Each time I go and visit them, the five beautiful mugs with their pictures on them could be seen displayed in the house.  They told me that they are "too good" to be used so the mugs were being decorated instead.  hahhaaha...  This time I got one for myself at www.printcious.com.

Besides mugs, there is a wide selection of gifts to get for yourself or your love ones.  This is something more personalized and not everyone can get the same as what you do.  You can customize your own photos, be it scenery, wordings or any love dovey messages, each gift you order will be specially done for you.
Part of the categories in the website... 

Initially I did not know how to upload my picture to the mug... and I was like "stuck" halfway.  But no worries, there is an "ever-ready" customer service chatbox just at the right hand corner of their website.  The customer service was so helpful, she guided me through step by step, from A to Z, patiently with this auntie (yours truly) here.  Finally I got everything done up smoothly and within a few days, I received this special package...
 Carefully wrapped up with bubble wrap inside as well... 
 Giving with Art is giving with Heart... 
That is a very nice quote... Yes, even to myself! 
hahahahaa...
A gift to myself... 
Well, that's me with my precious mug!

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...
