Food And Desserts In Gaharu, Gopeng Food Court And Lawan Kuda

SECOND ROUND...

On the way down from the hill, we stopped over at Gaharu Tea Valley to get some coffee packets.  One box with 10 packets of Gaharu coffee powder cost RM34... Wow... that is not cheap but then for coffee lovers, this is not an obstacle.  LOL.. We were served with Gaharu tea also known as Agarwood and on the way out, we saw Gaharu ice cream.  Ahhh... That, I could not resist and we ended up having one each despite our heavy tummies.
Yes, I am an ice cream lover for whatever flavour... 
This is new.... Gaharu Tea Plantation..
For those who want to visit, each person is charged RM10 for the ride up to the hill... 
No, we locals did not go up... wait till visitors come visiting... :)
Tortoise is one of their icons here... 
Then we adjourned to Gopeng food court to have our fix on the Chicken Porridge... 
The stall is a Brother and Sister team who are in the 70s... 
I was told that they do not talk much and it is not surprising if they do not answer you at all... 
I was quite hesitant to order... 
I started with "Uncle, I want one bowl of porridge, one portion enough, Uncle... "
To my surprise, he answered.. "Where do you sit?"
Then I pointed, "There, Uncle.... Thank you Uncle".... 
And that did the trick... 
I got my servings within some few minutes!  Phewww.... 
And this is really worth ordering... Only RM4.20 for the porridge and chicken!
And our trip ended with a Big Bowl of Fresh Cendol for RM2.30 in Lawan Kuda... 
Now I am wondering where my Cendol photo has gone to!
Too bad... I must come one more time to get hold of it... 
LOL...

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
