A Visit To The Gordon Highlanders Museum, Aberdeen

One of His highlights *not mine* is the Gordon Highlanders Museum here in Aberdeen.  My BIL is all for history, especially those war memorials.... visiting museums is the main itinerary for his trip to UK.  Before he came, he already did a lot of research on where to go and places to visit. 

And so here we are on one fine weekend...

The Gordon Highlanders Museum... it is based in Aberdeen and it celebrates the story of the Gordon Highlanders which were active from 1794 to 1994 and it is a 5 star Scottish Tourist Board attraction, according to Wikipedia.
Walking up the entrance to the museum.... 
At the entrance, the two guys bought their tickets to go in....
While the two ladies made their way to the cosy cafe..... 
We ordered a light breakfast..... 
Lentils soup and tuna sandwich...  around 6 pounds... 
I was not a Big Fan of soup before... 
But now, I definitely AM!
As long as it is not milky creamy based, I am fine with any type of soup... 
While waiting for the guys, we walked around the gift shop.... 
One hour later, they exit from their tour.... 
My BIL gave full praises for the guided tour... 
Definitely worth the visit, he said... 
hmmm.... 
And before we left, a Salute to the heroes....

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....

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
