From San Francisco To Taipei and Malaysia

My twenty seven days vacation to California has finally come to an end.  And here I am at the airport in San Francisco after checking in all my luggage.  When I arrived in San Francisco, I had only one luggage to check in and one hand luggage with me.  However after the vacation, I had two "overweight" luggage, one hand luggage weighing 7 kilograms and one tote bag!  At the airport last minute, I had to take out some of my stuff to my sibling's luggage.  Gosh!!  I better control my shopping next time!
What a relief after checking in all the luggage...
San Franciso airport during midnight....
While waiting for the plane, 
I walked around with my mother and took some pictures..
Quiet and serene....
The flight departed at around 1.35am...
and we reached Taipei the next mornin (15 hours difference)
around 6 in the morning...
Upon reaching Taipei airport, we went for the famous beef noodles...
Too bad I forgotten to take some pictures of the food...
Taipei was bustling with passengers, nowadays almost everyone can take vacations.  There are always cheap holidays on promotion,  we just have to check out the websites concerned.  Anyway as for me, after this long vacation and spending in US, I will "sit down quietly" for some time before I start to plan again for another vacation.  The money spent was certainly worth it, I feel so refreshed and contented... it is one of my dreams to go to California and I will look forward to going for another vacation if I have the time, the money and the stamina.... LOL...

Coming back to the flight, we reached Kuala Lumpur International Airport around 2pm and without taking any rest, I drove back to Ipoh with my mom.  Come to think of it, I spent the whole day on the flight and land journey... 12 hours from SF to Taipei, then transit another 5 hours flight to KL airport and then journey back to Ipoh by car another 2-3 hours.... Thank God I didn't feel any jet lag along the two hours drive home!  Phewww....

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
