Ferry Across And Seafood Dinner At Isle Of Skye

ISLE OF SKYE...

We have to make it to the ferry terminal to cross over to the Isle of Skye before 4.30pm.  Actually there are two options to cross over to the isle aka island, one is by using the ferry from Mallaig and another is by using the Skye bridge which we did the next day.  Aaron wanted us to try the ferry first and so we did.  The ferry catered for cars too, (just like Penang) and it took around 30 minutes to cross over to the Isle of Skye. 
Ferrying us across... 
As we sailed along... 
On the ferry... indoor and outdoor... 
Of course, I was indoor... the guys are more adventurous...
They took these pictures.... so beautiful... 
Nearing the Isle of Skye... 


Isle of Skye is a popular resort for both locals and tourists far and near.  It is known for its rugged landscapes, picturesque fishing villages and medieval castles.  Portree is the name of the town, a base for exploring the island and it features harbourside pubs and boutiques.  But first.... before it turned dark, actually it did turn dark by 5pm, we were huddled into a restaurant for our dinner, we were super hungry by then!

Cuchullin Restaurant it is called.... a 16th century lodge which serves fresh and local seafood and meat.  Actually we did not do any homework on this, we just randomly entered into one...

I sat beside the giant lobster at the window... 
Ordered seafood pasta... 
Must try their lobsters... not the one by the window though... 
Seafood platter.. consisting of fresh scallops, fish, mussels... 
I like the scallops... so big and juicy!
Part of our order...
These too.... 
Actually not a lot... everything was wiped off clean... 
And we must not leave the place without this below... 
Ice cream with Moist Chocolate Cake or was it Brownie.. 
And our meal... before and after...
And the next hassle...
Finding our AirBnB in the dark up the mountains!

  3. A beautiful blue journey. And the food looks divine! I hope you managed to ignore that lobster perched beside you; no guilt for eating his brother!

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...
