Our Homecooked Seafood Dinner For Four

HOMECOOKED... but not cooked by yours truly!  I rather be a "supplier" than a cook, it is better to stay that way.  LOL... 

Another one Rice-less meal for 4 persons.  All we got to do is just finish the 4 dishes, no leftovers were allowed.  And that suits us just fine!  We had our early dinner as usual, nothing later than 5pm and by 6pm, we would be out walking in the mall to shed off calories.  Alas, it is not going to be like that for this week onwards.  Since another outbreak in Kedah and Sabah last week, we have to be vigilant of our moves again... sigh... so much for thinking that Mr. Covid was under control.... 

This meal was taken way before the Election in Sabah... we were so happy then, we thought of having state to state holiday but now we have second thoughts.  Just when we thought it was safer to move around and now this again.... we have to take extra precaution again.  Less meet-ups and more own home cooking from now on.... 
Four dishes for the blessed four...
Big tiger prawns bought at the night market...
RM45 per kilo and there were 15 big prawns...
My friend cook half and kept half for another day...
Steamed eggplants planted from her own garden...
Eat without fear of pesticides....
Long time I did not eat this type of clams... aka Lala...
My friend did a fantastic job cooking this....
She put in lime, kafir leaves, chilies and coconut water!
So sweet... no gravy left by the time the clams were finished...
Our seafood dinner taken a couple weeks ago...
Now all I can do is to salivate...
When shall we have this type of dinner again???

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
