Durian Season

DURIAN FEST... 

Eat all you can for RM5??  We saw a big crowd at one of the stalls near Taman Sutera but no, we did not stop and see what was really going on.  Seriously, why are the durians so cheap here in Johor?  Some are even selling as low as RM1 and RM2, but of course, they are tiny ones.   Seems Aaron is back at the perfect timing this round, he has a durian fan with him all the time... ME!!

Yes, both of us gained weight together, durians are sweet and give heat to the body same time.  Do not overeat, or if really cannot refrain, drink fresh coconut water or eat mangosteens, they are sold at RM5 and RM20 respectively.  I rather opt for the fresh coconut water with fresh flesh.  LOL... We were also told not to take branded durians, no need to name them here... As usual, we opted for those cheap, small but original ones which cost around RM5 each.... 
Durian Party for durian lovers!
Prices vary accordingly.... 
Stalls here and opposite... just choose the seating.... 
And here goes....
For RM5, we were not supposed to 'open n carry' back ... 
But this guy is very nice, he patiently packed up nicely for us...

  7. Durian lovers sure happy and eat till their hearts content. Haha. But not for me. Somehow I don't fancy the fruit any more for many years now. Probably ate too much of it when I were young girl that I fall out of love with the fruit. Lol. Can do with or without it.

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
