Our One Week Vacation At Salt Lake City, Utah

LONG ABSENCE!

Time really flies.. and my blog got neglected for the past 2 weeks?  Or was it 10 days?  I really wanted to do current posts but it was not possible without a laptop.  Cannot do much with an iPhone or iPad.. okay, these are excuses.  LOL... Real reason is that I am really Lazy!  I did not use much of my brain cells in writing lately, I guess over 10 years of blogging has make me feel so old!!  LOL...

But seriously, I still want to keep my blog alive.... and I want to thank my readers once again for coming by faithfully for these past years!  I will also continue to visit your blogs whenever possible for me to.  My frequent traveling lately has occupied much of my time....

My latest travels was a one week stay at the Salt City, Utah, up the skiing mountains.  The journey took more than 12 hours!  Drive... I must add... and salute the one man driver!  While we passengers slept after eating, the poor driver had to drive us through the mountains, the valleys and so forth....
Stopping at our first diner... for breakfast... 
a very enormous one too!
Fried chicken steak...
While we ladies shared the soup and sandwiches....
And....
Spaghetti!

The salty town.... 
Stretching our legs.... 
And by the time we reached the skiing resort, it was totally dark....

  2. Welcome back, Claire! You are living the dream of any retired person. And I think you still look way too young to be retired! The diner food looks awesome! Now I need to go and eat something.

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
