Old Town Sacramento And Candy Barrel

FROM THE STATE CAPITOL, we adjourned to Old Town, Sacramento...

Since it was a weekday, there were not many tourists but come weekends, the place will be filled with people.  During the summer and weekends, there are horse drawn carriage rides and street performers dressed in garb and strumming guitars... I remember during my previous visit a couple of years ago, there was some kind of performance on the street too.

It was very quiet on a weekday..... 
Carriage ride for the tourists... 
No, we did not get into one... 
Looks very cowboy-ish... minus the cars, that is... 
Railroad museum along the river bank... 
 A historic train pulled by vintage diesel locomotives from the museum’s collection.
And from here, we walked to the stores....
Along the planks sideway.... 
To a famous store... 
SALT WATER TAFFY CANDIES STORE!!
Over 70 flavors including Banana, Carmel Apple, Buttered Popcorn, Peanut Butter, 
Guava & Mango, oh.. that is all I can recollect... 
Just choose your pick!
LOL..

  3. The Old Town really looks like going back in time. Do the candies taste nicer than the candies here?

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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
