Our First Chinese New Year Dinner In Perling, Johor

JALAN-JALAN CARI MAKAN!   (LOOK OUT FOR FOOD)

That is why we normally do when we reach Johor, or should I say... me?  This time I brought my buddy along on this trip.  She is my childhood friend since.... how many years back?   Cannot remember, more than 40 years anytime!   LOL... That shows how "young" we are now...

Anyway, I am so glad she finally followed me on this southbound trip, my kids are very comfortable with her, she is more or less their so-called "Kai Ma" aka Second Mother... I remember during the time when I was still working and had to go on "kursus" (seminars/training/games) away from home, I would send SOS to my friend to come over and stay with my kids.  At least I have a peace of mind with her around in the house during my absence. 

Back to my first evening in Johor... my in-laws are very nice folks.  Whenever we come down to Johor, they would invite us out for dinner and this time they took us to a new restaurant in Perling.  So excited or so hungry about eating that I practically forget to take down the name of the place... Oh well... perhaps the next time round... LOL...

This is a set meal which cost around RM238 excluding the appetizer and the dessert.... 
Since it was still CNY, we ordered Loe Sang as appetizers to start off... 
I just cannot get fed-up eating this again and again!
Fook Chow soup... sour and a bit spicy... with bamboo shoots..
Many do not like the smell of that but I really don't mind.... 
Mixed vegetable with a few Macadamia nuts... 
Buttered Prawns.... 
Saucy Steam Fish.... 
Meat Trotters in claypot....
For the 7 of us.... 
Oh yeah, this dish was ordered separately.... 
And that was more than enough for 7 mouths!  LOL...
For Ipohians,  one look they will know this is the trademark design from Nancy Chong... 
My niece requested for it and we brought it all the way from Ipoh.... 
My kids also love this butter cake very much!
For one kilo, it is now selling at RM65 ($16usd)

  2. That is a good price for a 1 kg butter cake. That is a lot of food for that price. Good deal. I like that they add macadamia nuts to that dish.

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
