No Q For Book Lovers

Besides being a food lover, I am also into books!  But not all kinds of books, only selective ones.  Before the computer was "born", I was an avid book reader. When I eat alone at home, there would be a book beside me... when I go to my "private small cubicle", I would be holding a book too... and yes, before I go to sleep those days, I would be reading some chapters and sometimes when the storyline gets more and more exciting, I would be reading even when it was after midnight.
Books pending... yet to be read...

Well, as time goes by and the latest gadgets come to "live"... I spend less of my time reading books but more into reading blogs and social media networking (the one that starts with a capital F).... but nevertheless, I still manage to squeeze in some of my day's time to read... 
I received a small package sent from Singapore recently. 
My books which I ordered through this online store called noqstore.asia has finally arrived!
My favourite author is Sidney Sheldon but since he has passed on, 
Tilly Bagshawe is the one I am following now.... 
Her writing style is almost the same with the Sidney Sheldon.
Here's her three books that I have ordered and arrived!

And now to benefit my readers... you can also order books in this website here by quoting REANA and get an exclusive 15% discount on all purchases at NoQ store... valid from 11 August till 31 December 2014!  More than 14 million books are in store for you... No Buy never mind, at least go and take a look!

  1. Ahhhhh!!!! Good convenient way to buy books but I do enjoy browsing around the stores to pick the book I want plus the added bonus of the nice smell of brand new books.

    2. Won't buy if I have a choice. Last week a small piece of plastic fell off from the hole that I insert the charging connector. It's been going downhill ever since. Now I charge the phone overnight, can get 40% capacity only :(

    3. Oh really... then must get one.. 40% can only last a couple of hours if using watsapp.. or even less if surfing.. Chinese saying... old one don't go, how to get new one leh?

  9. Me too! I love to read, and when I was growing up, I would even bring a book to the dinner table. That made my mom mad. But now there is laptop, ipad, Smart phone, and my books stay in the bookcase. There are not enough hours in the day, Claire!

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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
