Dinner At Din Tai Fung Restaurant, Westfield, San Jose

THE WAITING GAME.... Dining out especially during Fridays and weekends is no joke.  Even after making reservations, we need to wait for two and a half hours to get a table.  We reached the Westfield mall around 4pm and the estimated time for our dinner is around 6pm... after walking two hours in the mall, finishing two cups of Cold Stone, we still have to wait for 10 more people in front of us. 

Oh, we did not have to queue up of course, they will send a text to my son's handphone.  After being said and done, how come I did not mention the name of the restaurant???  LOL... The long wait was from Din Tai Fung, a Taiwanese restaurant which has made its way to this part of the world as well.  I know there have branches in certain states in Malaysia but not Ipoh.... I have tried a few times but nothing like this long wait ever before.... 

Outside Din Tai Fung...
Going to our turn anytime soon....
Mostly Asians... many come to pick up as well....
And we joined in the crowd.... 
keeping certain distance away....
Famous for their Siew Loong Pau... 
Beef noodles was tasty too!
Fried rice with chicken chop....
And Spicy Wanton.... 
Nope, we did not manage to finish them all....
Doggie bag fried rice and two of these for the next day.... 
How much?
I think it came to around $60...
Don't convert and it is definitely cheaper!


  1. It looks like the long wait was really worth it!

  2. Oh? They have Din Tai Fung there too? Bet the prices would be similar to outlets in KL before conversion. RM60 is cheap! LOL!!!

    Wowwwww!!!! Standing in a long queue with a baby is no joke! I would have gone some place else. Your grandson must be a very good boy, did not make noise.

  3. Wah, dtf is so popular in USA. You are looking good and the baby too! Enjoy and stay safe! I like the food of dtf too. Tasty!

  4. Tasted xiao long bao in China, I am not a big fan.

    Business was so good. Worth the waiting as food looked good

  5. Wah their business so good in USA too! The one at 1 Utama which I went only once sudah tutup a few years ago.

  6. The 3 of you are such small eaters. Everything looks delicious especially beef noodle.

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

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
