Pre CNY Dinner With Ex-Classmates At Kok Thai, Ipoh

PRE-CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION WITH MY EX-CLASSMATES...

Two of my ex-classmates from Kuala Lumpur came back to Ipoh for the weekend.  They gave us more than a week's notice to plan for their home coming dinner on the very day they arrived.

It was a Friday and a very cooling one indeed for it rained heavily while we were on the way to Kok Thai Restaurant.  The rain has been good to us, it did not pour when my friend came and fetched me.  But it was pouring dogs and cats just a few minutes after I got into the car.  Traffic was very heavy and it took us more than half an hour to reach the place.  And guess what.... the rain stopped when we reached the restaurant... totally stopped!  And the rain continued again, this time was less heavy... Really Thank God for we did not get wet at all... with our makeup, high heels and all.... LOL... Ladies!!

Before my other friends arrived, we made our order first and by the time they arrived, the food were ready to be served.  Good timing!  As usual, ladies have lots to catch up with one another.... our mouths were super busy, we can really multi-task when it comes to gathering like this...
Since there are only 7 of us, we ordered a S size to start off with...
Loe Sang as the Appetizer...
Followed by the Hoi Mei Poe aka Seafood variety in Claypot...
Vegetarian Assam Curry...
Pork ribs with ginger and mushrooms in Claypot...
Kai Lan with Yam... 
And among the dishes, this is still the Best of them all.... 
Just four dishes for the 7 of us...
We are small eaters ma... ahemmmm..
See... don't we look like small eaters?
To my lovely ladies, 
Gong Xi, Gong Xi... 
Wishing one another Good Health and Happiness...

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... 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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
