I Am A Traveling Nomad

REACHED IPOH IN THE EVENING after more than 24 hours journey.. My journey started from Sacramento, a two hours drive to San Francisco, then a 17 hours flight to Kuala Lumpur, excluding transit at Hongkong for two hours, reaching Kuala Lumpur at 12.30pm in the afternoon.  From the airport, we "hired" a driver to take us back to Ipoh, another three hours drive... and finally stepping into my home sweet home at around 4.30pm... Phewwww.... Thank GOD for journey mercies and smooth journey all the way back.... good to be home again after 90 days....

Oh wait!! I spoke too soon... In less than 48 hours in Ipoh, I was "whisked off" again!  Yes, I am Not a robot but it happened this way... The next moment, I found myself in Penang, I was told not to worry, she would be doing all the driving, all I need to do is to sit back and relax.  Relax?  No way, the moment she started to drive, I have to sit up and be on the look-out!  LOL...

At least I spent two nights in Ipoh before leaving my nest again... I didn't even have time to unload my suitcases, my goodness... all I did was to pack a few belongings and off we went....
And here I am.. sitting up, eyes open and looking at the road.... 
Thank goodness, no jet lag... *slept a lot on the plane*
Second Bridge is very quiet... 
Good, no traffic jam...
And while my girl attended to some functions,
 I took some simple meals such as these.... 
Penang Hokkien mee... 
Most missed... Laksa without shrimp paste...
Chives Dumplings...
Durian ice cream!!
Reminded me of Leatherby's in Sacramento...
Ok, don't compare..... 
This is only RM3.50... so I won't comment anything... LOL...
hmmmm.....What shall I say...... 
By the way... 
is Wonder Woman still flying around the movie theater?

  2. Wah! You are one super woman! For me 2 nights in Penang left me tired and sleepy!

  3. Indeed you are a nomad! I would pengsan like that. Me is no wonder woman. Good for you that you can sleep on the plane. I was wide awake on the way there and back.

    1. I took half a tablet for motion sickness so I was fine... otherwise will be like Zombie!

  4. Bet you missed our local delights so much while you were in the US. Hmmm...Penang again. Gotta go regularly to handle your financial matters there? Your millions in the bank?

    1. I wish what you said will come true!! hahahaa

  5. always travelling~ need a good rest though, to regenerate. hahahaa

  6. You have a lot of energy, Claire!! All the food looks very good today!

    1. Very different from what I have eaten last three months!

  7. Durian ice cream and Penang Hokkien Mee, I like...

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
