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...  My Moo Moo costume... Two Moo-Moos, Scooby Doo and Mario.... And the treats our Scooby Doo collected!

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 ha

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 t

Downtown San Jose For Trick Or Treats

FAST FORWARD... My lovely in-law has finished her "babysitting job" and flew back to Malaysia, leaving me to tend to my grandson who kept me pretty much occupied during the day time.  This cheeky fella has grown up by then, only started walking around 16 months and since then, it was more about running and I chasing him here and there.  Anyway, he keeps me on my toes and my food digested faster than I was in Malaysia.  LOL...  Halloween was in October, my daughter-in-law took us to downtown one evening.  She knows all about the activities happening and it was all about treat or trick for the kids.  Never knowing what to expect, I was full of anticipation especially with the young one donning a Scooby Doo outfit.  Wearing the Halloween outfit was a tedious job, after much struggling, we managed to get him into it but we failed to get him wear the Scooby Doo headgear.  We gave up....  Downtown, few roads were closed for pedestrians on that day... Let's queue for the treats!

Attire To Keep In Shape

Ladies are ladies, we love to look good in our everyday life. When we look good, we walk and work in confidence, it brightens up our day and it brings positive vibes to our daily life. But in order to look good, we must have a healthy and balanced lifestyle. It is not just about working out but eating well to. Eating a balanced diet each day can bring the freshness from our physical outlook, exercising at least three times a week will improve our stamina and have a fresh mind to face our everyday life. An excellent way a woman can euphorically bear the sweat and grind that comes with working out is to wear clothes that feel comfortable and charming. Activewear sets can make you feel proud of your body. The sportswear gives off a womanly aura and inviting ambience that makes you perform impeccably and looking stylish while at it. The buttery soft performance in this image is made from an unique texture with moisture wicking, breathable and stretchy at the same time.  It keeps you dr

At The Pumpkin Fair 2022

IT WAS FALL...  and this is the second time that I have experienced the autumn in San Jose. We went to another pumpkin farm, entrance fees was $15 for each person.  This time my grandson has two grandmas to accompany him... LOL... yes, two grandmas staying together in one room.  My son joked about it in his office, "handling three ladies in a house is no joke!"  LOL....  Well, it is indeed a joke, modern mothers like us do not give problems to the younger generation... ahem... instead we lend our four hands to getting the household chores done smoothly!  LOL...  Sorry to digress, back to my pumpkin post, we had a great time at the farm, the two grannies becoming "children" again... LOL...  Nice deco inside the pumpkin fair... Went for the train ride two times....  Up the truck wagon full of hay too! With the young and sophisticated granny.... Pumpkins for Sale! See, we played with the young one.... We helped him fed the goats...  eeeek..... A really fun time togethe

Our Fish Shopping And Eating At Half Moon Bay

*I AM BACK... for now.... * November 4th was my last post, it has been more than two months that I have been lazy when it comes to blogging.  My blog is  My son took us to a fishing wharf in Half Moon Bay, it was one and a half hours away.  We bought mainly fish and they were very fresh but when it comes to pricing, it was not very cheap.  I feel some grocery malls are selling cheaper fish than these here...  Endless yachts docking... Mostly are fishing boats... And here we are....  Walking along the jetty... Waiting for the fisherman to attend to us...  Fresh salmon for sale... Getting a fresh one...  We bought a whole fish costing around $170! This is our "fisherman" Naturally we stayed back to have lunch... Fish burger, fish n chips and fried calamari... I love the fried calamari... so spongy! LOL.. Come, let's eat!
