Second Day In Aberdeen Exploring And Lunch

AGAIN BOTH OF US WOKE UP EARLY...
This morning I got up at 6am and it was 1pm in Malaysia... So I presume my brain cells are still following Malaysian time and I just coukd not sleep longer over here in Aberdeen.  Seems it was not only me who couldn't sleep, my girl was affected too.  Both of us got up to prepare breakfast, blending some promeganate and oranges and taking bread with peanut butter.  Very healthy breakfast!

Then we went out to explore another direction from our place...and as I walked, I felt colder and colder... My jeans jacket was definitely not thick enough to keep me warm.... Gggrrrr... "Girl, lets turn back, mama is freezing!"  Weather is unpredictable, yesterday was cooling... Today was super cold...

Good to be home again and ended up spending the next hour preparing lunch for the three of us....

Shivering in my two thinner layers...
Huddling at the corner....
That is the furthest point we explored this morning...
Tomorrow we will continue from this point....
Back home, we prepared for lunch... Herbal soup...
Asparagus with some sambal shrimps and cashew nuts...
Asparagus herbal soup
Mushrooms chicken....
Simple lunch for the trio....
Smiles during lunch break....

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
