Carelessness And Absent Minded On CHIJ Day 2015

COULD IT BE DUE TO THE EXCITMENT?

CHIJ year '77 was planned months before and we were looking forward to the Big Day! Two of my classmates came from outstation to slumber in my house and obviously, being ladies, we wanted to look our Best, right? That was my weakness... in order to look good, my mind was being "strayed."

Hours before the Big Night, my friend and I went to the hair saloon named Carbello.  Being me, I took my iPad along to while away the time while enjoying the soft massage on the hair on shoulders.  Everything went on fine, our hair was beautifully done, we paid the bill and went home happily.

Fast forward.... when party was over, the first thing I reached home was to log in to my iPad to check my Facebook... and to my horror, I couldn't find it anywhere in the house nor in my car.  Oh my goodness!!  Where has it gone to?  Don't tell me I left it in the hair saloon?  *Prayers prayed*

I couldn't sleep well throughout the night, I even dreamt that I found my iPad on my sofa... too bad it was just a dream.  The first thing I woke up was to go to the saloon straight but it opened only at 10am.  After my breakie, I quickly drove to the saloon... before entering, another *silent prayer*...

The first word upon entering, one lady looked up at me and said.. "Looking for iPad?"  With a smile on her face and another few workers, she handed me back my "treasure!"  Phewwwww... What a Big Relief... !  *Give Thanks!*

Yes, many Thanks to my God for answering my prayers and to the staff of Carbello for safe-keeping my sentimental iPad for one night!  I certainly will visit you all from now on!

Tonight I should be able to sleep.... hahahaaa.... and since this is a long post, I won't be able to post up the CHIJ photos... instead ... here is something I really "treasure" too....

  7. Haih, I haven't seen most of my classmates since... I don't know. I think we had a reunion a couple years after we left school, and that's about it. I think if I am to bump into some classmates accidentally now, I would not recognize most of them! >.<

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...
