Food During Winter In San Jose

SOMETHING NEW TO ME... and I learn how to cook them from my daughter-in-law.... 

Now I am back home, I cannot remember the names of these dishes.... Before I forget what I have eaten, I have this need to put these pictures up in my blog before they go permanently deleted in my folder.  

Looking back now, we did not eat out much, since everything could be obtained in the supermarkets, it is best to cook these food by ourselves.  

We love seafood... 
A pot of just prawns, mussels and clams.... 
The sauce consists of some butter, cajun and chili flakes... 
That is all I remember... LOL... 
Don't be deceived by the small quantity....
The seafood was very filling!
Next comes Korean... pancake with seafood... 
I made a mess out of it... 
Doesn't taste like what we ate in the Korean restaurant... 
LOL... 
This is Kimchi soup.... 
Does not look appetizing now...
But on a cold winter night, a hot pot of soup was very satisfying... 
Another dish my daughter-in-law made...
Rice balls with pieces of spam and spices... 
Made some chicken can soup and a pot of Vietnamese noodles.... 
Fusion of the east and west....
Something I won't be able to get from my hometown for sure...
Now I am missing the winter!

  1. I love seafood too but they are not cheap here. When it is cold, everything tastes good. Here, you will be tempted to eat out instead of cooking all the time. Lol!

  2. Mussels, prawns and clam for the win! We love those so much, just throw into the steamboat, so nice to eat and the soup will turn out really sweet and delicious!

    I'm not into Korean but the ladies in the house are so into Korean dishes - in fact, I have a Korean dish in my blogpost tomorrow. My girl cooked it that day! Hop over, ya!!!

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
