Meraki For Tea and Nyonya Breeze For Dinner

ON A DAY OUTING TO ISLAND PLAZA which I had not been to explore before, we went up to the first floor to walk around.  We came across one shop which fascinated us to stop there for quite a while. 

On the glass display were a collection of green jades, ranging from bracelets, ear-rings, pendants... well, that sure attracted us ladies!  

Besides selling what the ladies love, this elderly couple also have a lot of other antiques as well, and being seniors ourselves, we were sort of engrossed by most of the stuff they have.  Unfortunately I did not take any pictures, not sure they allow me to, anyway... with these jewelry, I don't think it is ethical to take pictures.  LOL....

I almost... almost ended up buying a bracelet (14K gold) with 5 or 6 tiny love like jades hanging to it.  I nearly did, it was luring me to take it home.. LOL... it cost RM1,000 and I managed to shake off the temptation eventually!  No regrets... now come to think of it, it makes me wonder who has actually worn that before... hmmmm..... It is good to have friends who really make us hesitate instead buying irrationally.... LOL.....

Tea time at Meraki cafe at the Island Plaza ground floor.... 
Baked cheese cake, latte and chamomile tea...
An evening walk at Straits Quay after a scrumptious dinner at Nyonya Breeze restaurant...
We were quite greedy for these Nyonya dishes....
Nasi Ulam, petai with prawns, Ju Hu Char, braised pork 
and two types of soup.... 
Plus a bowl of Pisang Pengat to share....
(Banana, sweet potato in thick coconut milk)
The bill came to around RM120...
Food is nice here and I would like to come for them again!


  1. The nyonya fare looks nice! & white crockery! Love love love!!!

  2. Food looks good. Is the Pisang penget very sweet? It looks sweet.

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
