Costume Trick Or Treats

KIDS HAVE SO MUCH FUN when it comes to Halloween, they love the dressing up and the treats are the main attraction of the day!

We adults also did not want to feel left out on this day, my daughter-in-law and I wore the same  costumes on this very day.  Both of us became "cows" .. perhaps we really work like one... LOL.... and the man of the family became Mario minus the mustache.  hehehe...

During the day, we went to a park nearby our house, there was an event going on there, as usual, the parade of dressing up, adults and kids alike were here and there, freebies were being handed out for everyone.  

And in the evening, we walked from house to house in this area and by an hour or so, our little man's bucket was full of goodies already!  He started counting his goodies the next day... and his total is always 10 cos that is the max number he can go at that time!  LOL...

Two Moo-Moos, Scooby Doo and Mario....

Yearning For Ipoh Food In San Jose

FOOD MADE FROM SCRATCH...

No going out to hawker stalls or restaurants to get these type of food which I have cravings for.  Whatever we want to eat, we have to make from scratch and that is when I learn how to cook.  The two ladies in the house ended up making trial-n-error dishes.  With the baby taken care of by the male, the young lady and the senior one spent some time bonding in the cool kitchen.  Yes, one thing good about cooking here is that the weather is cool enough, unlike in my own kitchen in Ipoh, I would be sweating left and right.  LOL.... 

Here are some of the dishes for our own satisfaction and cravings.... 
*Lots to learn about presentation though.... we have to minimize washing-up, so we did not care too much about the decoration... Big wok on the table is a normal sight during meal times!*

Our cravings for Chicken Koay Teow.... 
This one is Hokkien prawn noodles... 
Forgot to put in some greens...
No Kangkung here but we use spinach....
Steamed a big fish which we had to cut into half....
We don't have a big steamer/wok/plate... 
Sweet and sour chicken taken straight from the stove... LOL...
Most of the time two dishes are sufficient plus leftovers...
Another two dishes with a leftover from previous day...
And a Western dish now and then.... 

Online Shopping Is Still The Best

When I was holidaying in Sacramento, I spent some afternoons surfing the websites for online shopping. Everything seems to be so cheap, not just the malls but from online websites especially branded shirts, wallets, shoes, household items and many more. I was thinking if I were to work in US and drawing salary from there, I would be spending a big portion of my pay doing online shopping! Malls close quite early over there, hence browsing and surfing online is a better option. In fact my brother-in-law does a lot of purchasing through the Internet. He does not like going to malls if he is given a choice, he said, he prefers to do his purchasing online, no hassle of queuing up to pay and driving around for a parking.

This year 2022 is a year whereby numerous weddings are preplanned and arranged, bookings have been done in hotels, restaurants and venues to hold the wedding vows and dinner.  Well, a lot of these special occasions have been on hold in many countries and it is at this time we need to plan again for these special functions.   Most of the shopping malls and stores are are now opened, however their sales discount are still varying. Getting cheap dresses is a bit difficult in the malls at this time.  But fret not, in the midst of all these, we can always opt for cheap online stores!  There are many websites offering the their best and stylish designs for us to choose from and one of these is called Wholesale21.


Wholesale clothing is the best place to look for cheap and yet nice, comfortable attires.  Wholesale21 is a one-stop website to look for, whether you are planning to sell or buy, they have everything you might need to get the business going!  In this website, we can access to a wide range of clothing for both women and men, ranging from pants, shorts, jumpsuits, skirts and casual sets for both young and adults which also includes plus sizes as well.  There are also swimwear, tops, dresses to choose from. Their selection and prices vary accordingly and I am sure you can find one which fits the right occasion.  Their wide collection are so much cheaper and prettier than the ones sewn or bought locally from the shops.  Addition to that, their beautiful accessories ranging from shoes, hats, handbags among others, come in a variety of colors and styles to suit your choice, ranging from sizes S to 6XL, you can surely be able to fit into their items.

 I like their 2 piece women outfits, I love wearing casual and their designs suit me perfectly.  There is a big discount up to 50% now, the spring outfit is on and not only that, they have lots of accessories to go with the designs as well.

You can sit on your couch in your comfy track pants and swipe choices. There is no need to move out of your house and hunt for the products you need. So, there is no need to skip office and run from one store to another in search of a particular brand or product.  Moreover with just a click, you can search, save and get alerts every now and then for discounts and more discounts!

Well, if you are buying your items from a reputed online store, you can be sure that you will not be cheated. This is because; people across the world are viewing those items, and if you think that there is a breach of trust, you can raise a complaint against it. Also, you can read reviews about a particular store, brand or product before buying it.

Well, gas is expensive and cars today need more of it to give you the required level of comfort. So, shop online and save gas that will be wasted on moving around looking for specific items. Instead, use it to go on a vacation with your family.  Some of the best products are not available locally. However, you can buy it online and get it delivered at your doorstep.
