Destination Tokyo Tower, Ginza Street, Shibuya

AFTER LUNCH, we were taken to Tokyo Tower...
A communication and observation tower located in Shiba Park, Minato and Tokyo with a height of 333 meters, it is the tallest self-supporting steel structure in the world.

Next destination is the Ginza area, known as an upmarket or should I say, high end area with lots of branded stuff.  Of course, I could only go window shopping, just look see the Burberry, Blue Label, Celine among others....

For dinner, we had Shabu-Shabu... not sure what it is called in Japan, as far as I am concerned, I call it steamboat... LOL...

After dinner, we checked in to our hotel which is connected to a shopping mall.  Too bad it closes at 9pm, some even earlier... anyway, I was really tired by then.... once hit the pillows, it was ZZZZzzzz for me!
Taken at Tokyo Tower.... 
From the ground level...
And scenery from above the high tower.... 
Don't look down.. just at eye level...
They have a mini Skywalk Window up here..... 
My legs turned "jelly" when I stepped on it.... 
Looking down from the skywalk... 
One of my legs... 

At Ginza area.. high end... so I noticed not many shoppers....
Perhaps it was a weekday.... 
But it is not the case in Shibuya, the most busy intersection in the world... 
Well, rumoured to be... 
It is like a giant beating heart, sending people in all directions with every traffic light change... 
At peak times, it is said to be over 1000 people at this intersection... 
All I see is humans and more humans..... 
And it was not even the peak hour...... 
Then...
Dinner time!
Endless food... Buffet style.... 
Satisfaction Guaranteed!!  LOL...

  4. I remember Ginza, was there in the 80's so very long ago. I think I went to Tokyo Tower too. Can't remember much other than everything was so expensive. I am sure it is very much more so now.

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
