My Sunday In Sacramento

GETAWAY...  The first week in San Jose came and went.... and it was on a Saturday that I packed up my suitcase again for a one week stay in Sacramento.  

My full time nanny job does not start till the third week so I quickly took up the opportunity to visit my sister.  Once my job starts, I might not have "leave" to go anywhere... LOL... My son dropped me at my sister's place, it was a two hours plus drive from their place and they went back on the same day.  Bye-Bye.... see you the following week!!

The next day was a Sunday, we did not waste much time in Sacramento.  Together with my sister's friend, we went out shopping and eating what I have been craving for.  Shopping was supposed to be secondary but I ended up buying four pairs of shoes!!  Walking shoes mostly for elderly people like me, they will last me for another couple of years.  LOL.....

Food was my primary purpose in Sacramento....
Sister's friend is a Filipino... so naturally we went for Filipino food 
since she knows what is what... 
These were taken at Pacific Food Court....
I left the decisions to the other two ladies..
All I got to do is to be seated and wait patiently for the food.... 
LOL...
Ok, as far as I can remember.... on top left is roasted pork with lime and red chillies...
Something I would like to try one day.... 
Down left is yam leaves cooked with coconut milk....
And the right is something which reminded me of shark fin soup... LOL...
While Koreans have their own style of pancakes, so do the Filipinos..
Consisting of sweet potatoes, some greens and shrimps..... 
Crispy and nice, I like it!
Grilled fish.... not sure what type of fish though...
Eaten with rice and pansip *meehoon* to me.... 
Yes, three of us ladies shared the above....
We did not want to eat too full... cos we had another itinerary in mind...
LEATHERBY'S!!
Dining in and this place is always in good business regardless of weather....
Mask is a must upon entering.... 
NO mask, NO entry.....
So what shall we order?
Banana Split as usual... 
Not sure how many scoops... 
I just slurped and slurped.... endlessly till my tummy could take no more....
Oh how I love ice cream such as this!

  1. My goodness!!! FOUR pairs of shoes!!! *faints* Aren't they expensive there? Much cheaper back here in Malaysia, I'm sure...especially after converting, our miserable ringgit, so worthless.

    Oooooo...that mountain of ice cream!!! If I eat that I would not be able to eat anything else.

    I think the Filipinos call their noodles "pansit", sound like our Sibu Foochow piansip...but ours are meat dumplings, like wanton, not noodles.

    I had their grilled fish in KL - they removed ALL the bones inside, no bones at all. I really wonder how they do that. Yam leaves? We don't eat that, the young shoots, yes. I love tapioca leaves, we have that in our ethnic kampung cooking.

    1. Two hours, not far at all. I used to drive that long to my girl's jungle school...and I bet the roads there are so so so good, like the ones in West Malaysia, not like ours here. Such a pain to drive on and so dangerous too!!!

    2. Sacramento? There is a song about it, Middle of the Road - they sang Chirpy Chirpy Chip Chip - I'm sure you know that one.

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
