From San Francisco To Taipei and Malaysia

My twenty seven days vacation to California has finally come to an end.  And here I am at the airport in San Francisco after checking in all my luggage.  When I arrived in San Francisco, I had only one luggage to check in and one hand luggage with me.  However after the vacation, I had two "overweight" luggage, one hand luggage weighing 7 kilograms and one tote bag!  At the airport last minute, I had to take out some of my stuff to my sibling's luggage.  Gosh!!  I better control my shopping next time!
What a relief after checking in all the luggage...
San Franciso airport during midnight....
While waiting for the plane, 
I walked around with my mother and took some pictures..
Quiet and serene....
The flight departed at around 1.35am...
and we reached Taipei the next mornin (15 hours difference)
around 6 in the morning...
Upon reaching Taipei airport, we went for the famous beef noodles...
Too bad I forgotten to take some pictures of the food...
Taipei was bustling with passengers, nowadays almost everyone can take vacations.  There are always cheap holidays on promotion,  we just have to check out the websites concerned.  Anyway as for me, after this long vacation and spending in US, I will "sit down quietly" for some time before I start to plan again for another vacation.  The money spent was certainly worth it, I feel so refreshed and contented... it is one of my dreams to go to California and I will look forward to going for another vacation if I have the time, the money and the stamina.... LOL...

Coming back to the flight, we reached Kuala Lumpur International Airport around 2pm and without taking any rest, I drove back to Ipoh with my mom.  Come to think of it, I spent the whole day on the flight and land journey... 12 hours from SF to Taipei, then transit another 5 hours flight to KL airport and then journey back to Ipoh by car another 2-3 hours.... Thank God I didn't feel any jet lag along the two hours drive home!  Phewww....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
