On The First Day Of CNY At Pakeeza

Busy... Busy for the past few days.... neglected my blog till this very day which is now the sixth day of Chinese New Year.  Nevertheless, I need to post up my photos for memory sake and to keep reanaclaire.com alive and kicking!  LOL...

On the first day of Chinese New Year... we were on our own... No homecooked food at home ever since my late mom had closed her kitchen few years ago.  This year is no different, we went for Indian food again at the same place, Pakeeza restaurant in town.  Only difference is that my boy and my girl were not here for the lunch, and I "replaced" them with my niece and nephew instead!  Part of family too... LOL...
And we ordered these dishes to fill our hunger for lunch...... A very kind of different meal compared to the our CNY dishes and we love it!  I was not surprised that the restaurant was occupied by mostly Chinese instead of other races.  Obviously there are many who are like me, escaping from the kitchen and enjoyed being served with different kind of food which we normally have.  Nice food, reasonable bill which comes to around RM90 for the four of us.  A once-a-year affair at this time of the year!

  2. Wow! That is a lot of food for only 4 persons but I like to eat this style of food. Why once a year? You can always go and eat at this Pakeeza restaurant any time you feel like it. Hope you are having a great CNY so far.

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

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
