The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly


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 me when Jesus is living in me?"  This is what I see in her now... Living for Christ.

And now back to where I left off, this post will be about another good friend of mine, actually my childhood friend cum classmate, she flew to San Francisco for a month holiday with me.  My son picked her from the SF airport and together with me, three of us went to my sister's place in Sacramento which is two hours drive away.  

My sister and family joined us for lunch at Lollibowl, a Hongkong restaurant which is one of our favorite spots whenever we go to Sacramento.  Since it was a day trip for my son, we allowed him to choose what he wanted to eat.  And needless to say, for desserts, his best choice is Leatherby's.... after the great lunch and dessert-licious ice cream, he drove back to San Jose, with some food of course, for the family's dinner!

We had these for lunch....
Big enormous portions!
This is my favorite... Char Koay Teow...
And the humans indulging into these food....
Desserts in Leatherby's before my son drove home....
And so... our  fun holiday began... 
with me and my friend!
