How I Spend My Time In Sacramento

JUST REST AND RELAX... in my sister's house for one week before I went back to San Jose.  

Most mornings both of us ate a big bowl of oats and that was it until lunch time whereby we would go out for Asian food or a homecooked meal at home.  In the afternoons, both of us would laze around in the sun room to watch Netflix while dozing off half way through most of the time.  I guess retirees are living a life like this... napping in the afternoons!  Now I know why.... seniors like me cannot laze in bed too long and because of that, we need our afternoon naps... LOL... 

Anyway, resting and relaxing, time still passes by very fast and a day is over when we hit our pillows around 11pm.  That is my life in Sacramento.... just lazing away.... no wonder I love to go there! LOL.. 

My sister took me to Lollibowl
A Hongkong restaurant which serves what we love to eat...
Fried Koay Teow with lots of ingredients!
Price has increased a bit.. $13.00 now...
Anyway, both of us shared this enormous portion.... 

My sister cooked Sambal Anchovies... 
It is her signature dish... LOL.. 
And the rest below cooked by yours truly...\
Taro with spinach.... 
Zucchini with mushrooms... 
That was our meal for the whole day.... 
And soon we were back to San Jose on a Saturday afternoon... 


  1. oOoOO, I like your char kway teow, so much ingredients and the kway teow so thick! I like thick kway teow! Your home cooked dishes look very tasty too! 👍👍👍

  2. I must nap in the morning afternoon too but I go to sleep at around 9, not so late! I eat oats most morning these days too..

  3. I takes nap in afternoon too!! Otherwise I can't function well. Wake up so early on weekdays, drive in and out, I need to rest well

    Nice home cooked meal. Bet you will miss her cooking.

  4. Whoa! The fried koay teow is super loaded. I like! The home cooked dishes look wonderful too.

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

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
