Picking Up At Sacramento Valley Station

WITH THE FIFTEEN HOURS DIFFERENCE IN TIME, I managed to catch 4 hours of sleep on the first night in Sacramento.  Slept at 1am and woke up around 5am like a wide eye eagle and slept again in the afternoon for more than two hours before my body get adjusted to the time difference here. 

On the very next evening, we went downtown to the train station to fetch Aaron! 
His train supposed to reach around 8pm but was delayed for half an hour... 

And to pass away the time, I walked around the station which was practically empty... 
He arrived safely lugging two luggage....
Time to go for dinner after that.... 
We went for Vietnamese food cos it was still opened around 9pm...
Started on appetizers....
And these too...
Someone wants to cool down...
This was served... I like lots of basil leaves and lime....
We ordered their special...combination of this and that....
The Large size ... cost around $8.50 
The five diners...

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.......

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
