Swedish Village At Kingsburg

IT WAS A VERY QUIET MORNING when we drove in to Kingsburg, a Swedish-American town also known as "Little Sweden"... the name given by the community.  To keep up with the town's Swedish history, they have most of the retail businesses designed in Swedish architecture.
Valkommen... I guess that means Welcome?

Hope I am right!
The town was very quiet cos we were quite early when we reached there.. the place looks very clean and peaceful too...
Along the streets, I took these pictures in the moving car...
Swedish structures..
Then we parked our car right in front of this cafe....
Wanted to get some shortbread and coffee to ride with us.....
For the Birds?  Now I am wondering what that is... 
hahahaa...
While waiting.....
Upon entering... filled with homely displays...
And shortbread... we bought the "loose" ones..trying each of this and that....
And these two cats caught my eyes....
Ok, which one is the real?
The Black or The Brown?
Make a guess!

  1. What a lovely place. That is why I love these western countries compared to our Asian destinations - so nice just to walk around and look-see all around the places, the shops, the things...but of course, cannot buy anything - too expensive, even before conversion.

  2. A very beautiful, clean and quiet town. I do not mind walking around.

    Er? I thought both cats are fake?? But they are sure look huge and pretty. Well, if I have to pick I go for the brown cat.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
