Bak Kut Teh At Hin Hock, Tampoi, Johor

NEW BED...  I did not sleep well on the first night, different environment, different pillow, different bed...... I was up at 5.30am, I could hear my friends who were sleeping next door, they were awake too.  Perhaps like me, they could not sleep much.  Since the 3 of us were already up, we decided to go for a walk around the vicinity.  

The dawn was breaking by the time we walked out of our little nest.  Nice cooling breeze in the morning, we strolled along the road leading to the shops.  We took a long walk, almost an hour by the time we reached home.  While waiting for my son to get up, we took fruits and pineapple tarts as "foundation" .... Our itinerary only started at 10am and we went to Hin Hock Bak Kut Teh in Tampoi for our first meal of the day.

What is hidden beneath this pot of Bak Kut Teh?
Pork ribs, meat and fried beancurd.... 
Braised pork knuckles.... 
Steamed Red Snapper....
And Nai Bak greens.... 
We ordered two bowls of yam rice and two bowls of white rice for the 5 of us....
The whole meal cost around RM129... 
Good deal? 
After this meal, we were on our own.... with our Waze!

  1. Jalan Jalan Cari makan! You walk out of your condo garden so early in the morning? Food looks good. I am game for any kind of food because I just want to taste a bit of everything.

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
