Evening Sights In Amsterdam

FIRST DAY IN AMSTERDAM...

We had no specific itinerary in Amsterdam, I was just a "follower".... Wherever they planned to go, I just followed... LOL... The last time I came here was on wheelchair so I did not get to walk at all.  This time was compensated with lots of walking, from one street to another, going through alleys for shortcuts and turning here and there.  If not for my friends who led the way, I sure would have gotten lost.  Every street has a bridge over the canals, all look alike to me!  The weather was as cold as in Aberdeen, as usual, my winter jacket puffed up and I am all go Go!

For dinner, we had Vietnamese food... LOL... all the way to Amsterdam to taste the Asian cuisine! After dinner, as usual, I must have my "fix" even though the weather was super cold.  Someone told me that the taking cold desserts in cold weather is good, it will neutralize the body warmth.  Believable cos I do not feel cold taking ice cream at all!!

Walking around the town after dinner... 
Yes, this is a common sight... 
No, we did not try this ice cream... 
I really did not know which to choose... so difficult!
Our dinner and supper for the evening
Thumbs up for the evening!!

  1. Many of the streets are like canals, they have water? This reminds me of Venice. The food looks very good, especially the sweets!

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

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
