Friday's Close Work Lunch At Kim Wah Restaurant, Ipoh


For the past few years we make it a point to meet up to "close work" for the year before ushering in the New Year according to Chinese calendar.  "We" here are the ones working together for the past number of years, now most of us have retired except for a few younger ones left behind.  Now we retirees has outnumbered the working ones..... sooner or later, in another one or two years time, there will be only one young lady left behind... a lone ranger... while the rest of us are lazing around the house!  LOL...

Today is the day we meet up again... I went to my old office and met up with them.. and off we went to our designation, Kim Wah Restaurant in Farlim.  It was almost 1pm when we reached, Fridays are always jammed up everywhere.. the weather nowadays is flaming hot and other than that, we looked forward to our "Food Gathering" in the cool air con restaurant....

Half retirees, half workers... LOL...

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....

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
