Picking Up At Sacramento Valley Station

WITH THE FIFTEEN HOURS DIFFERENCE IN TIME, I managed to catch 4 hours of sleep on the first night in Sacramento.  Slept at 1am and woke up around 5am like a wide eye eagle and slept again in the afternoon for more than two hours before my body get adjusted to the time difference here. 

On the very next evening, we went downtown to the train station to fetch Aaron! 
His train supposed to reach around 8pm but was delayed for half an hour... 

And to pass away the time, I walked around the station which was practically empty... 
He arrived safely lugging two luggage....
Time to go for dinner after that.... 
We went for Vietnamese food cos it was still opened around 9pm...
Started on appetizers....
And these too...
Someone wants to cool down...
This was served... I like lots of basil leaves and lime....
We ordered their special...combination of this and that....
The Large size ... cost around $8.50 
The five diners...

I Am Back Again!

LANDED SAFELY..... PRAISE THE LORD!

Here I am, back to the Land of Plenty!  Planned my trip since December last year, tickets were cheaper then, this time I used EVA airlines, it cost RM3,179 return ticket.  First time trying out EVA, it was the cheapest compared to SQ, Cathay, Emirates except for China airlines.

It has been exactly one year since my last visit.... really time flies.  However this time my stay will not be as long as the previous year cos I miss Malaysia... LOL...

Started my journey from Ipoh to KLIA, 3 hours drive... waited three hours at the airport before landing in Taipei after 5 hours flight.  Connecting flight was three hours in between and boarded the plane at 11.30pm and reached here after 11 hours of smooth flying.  Food was pretty good on EVA, I took spaghetti with fish for dinner, porridge with minced meat and taro for breakfast which I managed to finish them all, to my surprise.

Landed in San Francisco at around 9pm, went through immigration smoothly and reached Sacramento around midnight.... slept for four hours and now I am up and actively running about!  Too excited?  LOL..

Lunch At Old Town, Cendol In Bercham

FOOD TRAIL WITH MY FRIENDS...

I anticipated anxiously when my friends come calling and paying a visit to Ipoh... Where to go, what to eat is secondary, we always play by ear at the moment of time when we see each other.  Better not to plan than planning, we know our likes and dislikes by now. 

Ipoh no doubt has a lot to offer when it comes to food, however, taste buds always change every now and then.  Food aside, we enjoy each other's company, catching up with one another and talking anything under the sun is more fun...

Even queuing under the sun for a bowl of Cendol receives no complaints from us....
Alright, we were not exactly under the sun but under the shade.... 
Someone was lining up for us instead... LOL... 
Worth waiting 20 minutes or so.... 
And our quenching time starts.... 
Had our lunch at Koh Kee in Old Town, Ipoh.... 
Steamed fish belly... .
Old style of steaming.... with lots of ginger and garlic...
Sambal Watercress...
Steamed three types of eggs...
Dishes for the four of us.... 
Bill came to around RM50 plus... not sure exactly how much... 
Walked around a bit in old town which is now a famous ground for tourists...
Yes, we were more or less tourists on this day!
