We Stay In Midtown Richardson, Taipei

RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE XIMENDING and the hotel we stayed for three nights is called MIDTOWN RICHARDSON.  Very convenient for us, that is shopping and eating, what else!  LOL.. The hotel includes buffet breakfast in the morning, we hardly ate anything in there, too many people and the food was nothing to shout about.  We stayed in a family room, so comfortable and nice, I credited my son for that... and I nearly jumped up when I heard the rate!  Okay, not disclosing here...
For the next few days, we walked around here and there... 
Queuing up for food... they definitely did some homework before the trip... 
Yes, there is a sign here for the Q... 
We arrived here using Uber.. or was it Grab... or MRT.. I forgot!
We had these.. supposedly to be very famous for their pork rice with soup... 
All meat and yet the Taiwanese are so slim generally... 
We had this in a night market... 
Mua Chee... that is her favourite... we had these twice... 
Yes, it was in the reviews that this is good... 
Something like Naan with Yau Chau Kwai... 
Taken with fresh soyabean.... 
I can accept this ... 
BUT...
Definitely not this... I cannot accept the taste...
With savoury soya bean?  hhhmmm... 
Nevertheless I tried..
Queuing up again each day... but no worries, actually they were pretty quick... 
Everyday we have this... simply the best!
And then desserts too... 
More to come next.....

  1. Staying somewhere where good food is an advantage. Savoury soya bean? Not sure I could acquire the taste or not. Lol.

  7. A hotel which is located close to where the food is, is always the best hotel. :D

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...
