A Welcoming BBQ Party In Sacramento

MY SISTER ORGANIZED A WELCOMING PARTY FOR US THREE MALAYSIANS and introduced us to her close friends... LOL.. That is the most appropriate word and a good excuse for good food, fellowship and bonding with her good friends and neighbours.  My sister is really good in these type of food party held in her backyard patio, everything went on smoothly and all of us had a good time eating, talking, singing and dancing, the last part is to shed off the numerous calories from the food! LOL...

Our welcoming party started at 3pm, that is the best time so as to avoid the cold evening in the open.  The weather was fabulous, even the sun seem to be the hottest around that time, we did not feel it scorching our skin. *If that happens in Malaysia, we  would be sunburnt or having heatstroke*  LOL... I was feeling all excited, I was given a task to do... Spaghetti Tomyam!
All in the mood to "party"... LOL... 
Part of the food we prepared... 
Desserts... A "Welcome" Cake!
Fresh Cherry Pie!!
And the party starts... 
  


Meeting everybody... 
And a group picture for remembrance as the party continues....
Oh did anyone notice my blue sandals????
I didn't really notice the contrast till I received some comments about it!
LOL....

Korean, Japanese, Mexican Food All In One Day

WHEN MENTIONED THE WORD SHOPPING, the day seemed to brighten up despite the gloomy weather sometimes in the morning.  Wet mornings do not dampen our mood especially when it comes to shopping especially to those factory outlet stores.  Though we do not have any intention of buying anything, we still feel happy just browsing and looking at their prices and stuff... LOL...

Before we set out, the first thing I do each morning is to drink a glass of fruit juice.  Fruits are pretty cheap over here, so I normally dump in any kind of fruit I can get hold of, apple, beetroot, orange are the basic ones, and when there are extra fruits such as strawberries, blueberries or mulberries, into the blender they go too as well.
My first drink of the day before doing anything else...
plus two glasses of warm water... and then
the detoxifying session will begin... LOL...
Getting all set to go for our outing!
Our first stop... Korean International Market... 
My sister's recommendation.... Korean Seafood Noodles...
I think it cost around $8
Nope, I could not finish this Huge Portion by myself...
Just look at this enormous bowl!!
Yes, certainly need to be shared....
We ordered this California roll as well....Smoked Salmon... $7.90
And after our tummies were filled... 
We began our shopping at Folsom outlets...
The whole course took us a couple of hours..
By the time we finished, it was late afternoon..
For the trip to Folsom took more than an hour to and fro...
On the way back, we bought El Pollo Loco...
Mexican food... whole set cost around $20...
Grilled chicken suits me real fine...
Yes, more than enough for us... 
I could only take one piece instead of two....
Have to watch my size otherwise I might end up looking like that
Plump Bear on the shirt I am wearing!
LOL...

Italian Set Lunch At Olive Garden, Sacramento

ON ONE FINE DAY, WE HAD OUR LUNCH AT OLIVE GARDEN.... It is an Italian restaurant.. my sister told us that the set meal is only $6.90 and it comes with endless bread sticks, salad/soup, and an entree.  A very-worth-it meal, she said... the bread sticks are endless, the salad and the soup is also "bottomless"... that means I can drink two or three bowls of soup or eat as much salad as I possibly can.  Sounds like a good deal...eh....

On this particular day, I took very minimum breakfast at home, I want to save "space" in my tummy for the endless food offered in this meal set.  Yes, I am very Asian.... what is free makes me happy especially when nice fresh food on the table.  LOL....
As usual while waiting for the "driver"... I leave my "marks" here and there... 
While waiting to be seated inside... 
Our Lunch Deal..... $6.90
Hot Fresh Bread Sticks.... 
Ended up taking two each... 
and they put a few more inside the box for us to take home...
So nice of them...
I ordered Salad instead of Soup.... 
It came with such a big portion that I could not order another at all...!
My sister ordered soup and it was so good that she ended up taking two bowls instead of three...
My sister ordered this entree... Meatballs Sandwich...

This is my order... Spaghetti....
Desserts are not included in the set meal though... 
Feeling guilty now cos I took most of it!
So super-licious!!
I am still drooling over them now...
Don't ask me what this is...
I just dug in and eat.... and eat..... 
And I am so glad that there is no weighing machine in the house!
LOL...
