The Ten On Chap Goh Mei Evening 2017

11.2.2017 - IT WAS THE FIFTEEN DAY OF CHINESE NEW YEAR, also known as Chap Goh Mei in Hokkien dialect  According to history, yesterday was the 15th of the lunar new year and the last day of Chinese New Year which was also known as the "Lantern Festival" and Chinese Valentine's day.  On this Chinese Valentine's day, it is known to connect Chap Goh Mei with the traditional myth of young unmarried ladies throwing mandarin oranges incribed with names and telephone numbers into rivers in search of a boyfriend then husband.  Till this day, I wonder whether this is still being done traditionally or just for fun so as to keep the myth going on and on. :)

As for me and my family, we went out for a scrumptious dinner to mark the end of CNY... A Big Thank You to the dear member of the family who generously gave this dinner treat at one of the prestigious restaurant in Johor here.  The venue is Loon Sing Restaurant and it was the first visit for me and my kids to this place to mark this auspicious day.  Our dinner started around 8.30pm and ended two hours later.....
Loon Sing restaurant just opposite the AEON Bukit Indah....
Very impressive with the decoration and layout.. 
When we walked in, it was like doing a cat-walk..
Only difference is that we are not models and no one is looking at us...
The tables on both sides are two steps lower than the walkway..... 
The place was crowded when we entered...
These pictures were taken after our dinner ended around 10.45pm... 
Most of the patrons have gone back.... 
Our dinner started with the Loe Sang as usual.... 
And the yummy dishes followed thereafter....
Not sure about the price but easily a four digit gua.. 
The dinner ended with a Dragonfruit Fish... 
Very impressive and creative...
And one for the album to mark this auspicious evening!

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

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
