My Early Birthday Gift

BROKEN PIECES....  I have intention to get a new iPad while I am here in US but never expected to get one so soon!

While in Sacramento, my old iPad gave up on me.  It slipped out of my hands suddenly and fell on the hard concrete floor.  Yeah, my bad, not my iPad, I did not manage to hold it properly and one second, it crashed downwards.  Landed on the wrong side too, the impact on the screen was too hard, when I picked it up, it was crushed... pieces of glasses went through the hardware.... oh no, so sorry for that, my iPad!
The impact of the flooring must be really hard... 
Fell from less than three feet.... 
Guess it is time to let go... 
It has been with me for more than 6 years or 7..... 
Bye bye.....
A week later, we went to the Apple mall to collect my new companion.... 

My new companion.... 
The latest version of Mini iPad...
So that I can hold it properly!
Now the next thing is the Overcoat...
Really must protect it for at least one decade...
LOL....
Thank you TC for my early birthday present!!

  1. Lucky you!!! Old folks say if things do not get spoilt, we will not have the chance of having new ones. Now you can blog more regularly, I guess? Do handle it with care, ya!

    Happy birthday in advance, bet you're going to have a grand celebration there!

  4. A wonderful gift! You were lucky to have your old one for this long. Our Granddaughter's stopped downloading things after it was about three years old. I guess they do get obsolete.

  5. Wah, nice to get new gadget. Sad about the previous one. Please be extra careful. Things broken are ok, can buy new ones but elderlies when fall, cannot buy new ones so please be extra careful. ❤️

  8. Your old iPad wants to retire knowing that it is time to go. The old has to go before the new can come. Lol! Happy birthday to you in advance.

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...
