Fine Dining At Canoe House, Mauna Lani, Kona

ONCE A LIFETIME OR SHOULD I SAY YOLO? 

Yes, we only live once and we should enjoy to the fullest... within our means, of course!  LOL...And that was what we did. 

On this special evening, my son booked a reservation at Canoe House in Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts for dinner.  I did not know what to expect except that he told me that it was a fine dining open air restaurant overlooking the sea.  

When we reached, I felt that I was home in Penang, very similar except for the beautiful sunset and cooling wind... and of course the food is different too.  The three of us ordered a 5 course set, not knowing what to expect except the best... LOL.... It cost $95 per pax and I think it is really worth trying.  As I mentioned earlier... YOLO... You Only Live Once!  LOL..... 

When we entered the resort, we felt that we were being "stared upon"...
Yes, no kids, no babies in sight... nor Asians too!
Some were looking at our baby in the pram, cooing to him.... 
Oh I guess this hotel is not for kids...
I asked my son... "did we come to the right place?"
We had our dinner here....
here.... 
Looks like our Malaysian beaches right?
the sun was going to set....
lower and lower.....
So beautiful....
Catching closer glimpse of the sunset....
The love birds went to capture these before the food arrives....
And soon it was nearly gone...
First course....
I finished to the last drop or piece.... LOL...
Second course.... 
Third....
Fourth one...
And dessert as the 5th course..... 
And this was complimentary cos of wedding anniversary.... 
Don't forget to mention during the reservation!
LOL...
Yes, our life time experience...
or should I say, that is my once-in-a-lifetime experience.....
LOL.....

  1. "Yes, we only live once and we should enjoy to the fullest... within our means, of course!" DEFINITELY!!! Especially at a time like this - even when we have the money, we really don't know what to do with it. Don't want to eat out, don't want to travel...just #staysafe #staywell #stayhome and we jolly well can't take all that money with us when we go!!!

    I save around RM500 because I stopped smoking, another RM500 as I stopped buying TOTO, around RM200 on petrol (and some more on car servicing) as I hardly go out these days...so when I shop for food and fruits, supplies for the house, I will just buy, never mind how expensive! I can afford it!!!

    What a lovely place! What lovely views!!! Happy Wedding Anniversary...to your son and his missus, I suppose...not you! LOL!!!

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
