TGIF With Mary At The Beach, Aberdeen

MAYBE MY LAST...

Yes, I sprained my muscle while playing badminton the other day...  I was trying to retrieve the shuttle at front, I ran over and stretched my knee forward.... and... oh oh... the sharp pain occurred at that very moment.  I told my partner, "I think this is it, you have to cover for me, I think I sprained something at the knee...."  And that ended my badminton session, just after two weeks I arrived... LOL... I have to hang up the racket again!

Since that evening, I had pain while walking up and down the stairs, not so much on walking, thank God.  Bought some supplements and knee guard and that is some consolation for now.... So, now back to basics, walking, shopping and eating...  no more sprinting around like a spring chicken which I thought I could be.  LOL..
The Woodbanks where we played badminton...
Guess I won't be coming here for the rest of my stay for now...
The beautiful red tree in front of Woodbanks...
Bye bye Red Tree... 
One evening Mary and I went for dinner at TGIF... 
Actually we just wanted something light cos both of were still full from lunch... 
We started off with an appetizer....
Followed by a half rack of ribs in Jack Daniel sauce...
Just two dishes for two small stomachs...
Happy moments at TGIF....
Back home, I was treated with a piece of Macha Cheese Cake baked by student.... 
He loves to bake and I always get a chance to try!
YUMssss!!

  1. Oh dear!!! You had a problem with your leg once...just before we left for Aberdeen. Do be careful, people our age need to take extra care - hope you are ok now. That red tree is really beautiful!

  6. Do take care. Sprained muscle is not little business. Could get worse if not rest and treated well.

    I have been to TGIF once and that was in KL. No outlet over here (yet).

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...
