My 25 Counties Journey

A DAY BEFORE OUR DEPARTURE FROM SAN FRANCISCO, my BIL handed me two pieces of paper and told me that I would be needing them when I reach home. hahahaha... He really has a good sense of humour! He knows that I own a blog and I write a lot of crazy stuff there and many times, I ended up giving wrong information too... hahahaha...

Well, what would one expect from a human being absent minded like me?  Or should I say... a poor memory?  So.... in order to set things right, he took the trouble to make photostat a map out, outlined it with green pen and then write down all the counties that he had taken me!  Isn't that nice!!  *To be on the safe side so that I won't be giving out wrong and inaccurate information.. that's me!

Okay, let me see... where have I actually been to....

And the arrows showed that I have been to Nevada and Arizona too!  
Isn't my BIL meticulous!
Just look at that... 25 COUNTIES!
Did we really pass through all those small towns?
Maybe most of the time, I was half asleep, I guess... hahahaa...
No wonder whenever we passed through some towns, I got jerked up from the "driver" and after a mumble from me...."Yes, ok...." I was back to dreamland.... ZZZzzzz....
Anyway, whatever it takes, I really appreciate all their thoughts for giving us such a meaningful kind of vacation..... Miss them much!!  Hopefully will see them REAL soon!!

  3. Your BIL is such an organised guy, very systematic...no cincai cincai kind of person.

    I envy you - so much energy plus you have the chance to travel. I'd usually choose to laze around and relax in the hotel room though, I'm so lazy...and will venture out only when it is time to eat. :D

  11. Your BIL is a very thoughtful person too. And he took the trouble to do it for you. You are so blessed! So when is your next destination! So fun to travel with you through your posting!

  12. What an interesting way to note the counties you have left your footprints. My friend does the same for Thailand as he wants to cover all the "Jangwats" which are like province.
    I never thought of this good counties idea while there except that I only counted the number of states in US.

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
